    We had a reservation for 8pm and came an hour early because our schedule changed. They were very flexible and accommodated us. The service from everyone from the front door to the end of meal was amazing. The food was excellent and exceeds my expectations every time. This was our 3rd visit to Tamarind Kitchen and it did not disappoint. We ordered based on what our waitress recommended off the menu and shared each plate as a table. The wine and cocktails were excellent. The bartender did a great job of making well balanced drinks that are not too sweet. I always recommend it to friends coming to London.

    Tamarind makes Indian food really Indian. No compromise! There are many Indian restaurants in London, but most of them do not even come close to homemade Indian cuisine in India. Tamarind is very close if not perfect. I would mention biriani as a food that looks simple to prepare - but to make a perfect one is not so easy. That was a test, and Tamarind passed it with an A.

    The whole experience was amazing from booking to the end of the meal. The curry was some of the best I have ever tasted! The golden prawns a dn sticky ribs were out of this world. The staff were friendly and attentive. If you are looking for amazing curry in a central location, this is the best there is!

    This is my favourite restaurant and I have eaten here many times. The staff are friendly, service is top notch and the food is always great. On this visit one member of my party had specific allergies to nuts and other things. The restaurant went out of their way to accommodate us including modifying dishes so that we got the best of the food experiences whilst ensuring that the allergens were not present in the food. The staff were very patient and polite in checking the dishes with the chef and providing answers to all our concerns. Fantastic evening and thank you so much Tamarind Kitchen for making it a great experience!!

    Hadn't been for a year, and it has kicked up a level with a new chef. The ribs were better then any I've had in Mayfair, the lamb curry was very good, though a bit much portion wise. The staff were friendly, funny, alert and attentive. The music was smooth and the mood was lively, though not the "Hen Night" ambience of Sexy Fish. I thoroughly recommend it, best Indian I've had in years.

    Fresh tasting fare. Can recommend the venison samosa, chicken tikka, non-veg set menu. Wine selection a bit limited. Service friendly but not as attentive as you might hope for. Ambience was pretty good for a Monday, plenty of customers without being noisy…

    The food and care of service was excellent, when we arrived the size of our party hand changed substantially and they were more than happy to accommodate. The only complaint was the service was a bit confused and slow, but the food was well worth the wait.

    Service was really good, just the right amount of attention. The food is just amazing, staters of avocado with puff wheat and chutney plus spicy battered prawns, just delicious, mains of butter chicken (this is chicken thighs so not my favourite but I just don’t like thighs)!and slow cooked lamb curry, rece and naan. Desert mango Juli which was fantastic. Negatives- chicken thighs in the curry but that is my preference, would be good if the menu stated it as I would have ordered something else 15% service added on everything, really 15% on an already expensive bottle of wine? But just ask for the service charge to be removed so you can leave what you prefer Overall, this is our second visit and we will be back
