Absolutely delicious meal. Every dish was well considered, great flavours and textures. Cocktails were unusual but also delicious and fun to try. Wine list was extensive and gave a good choice to suit different tastes and wallets but tailored to suit Indian cuisine. We went en famille and all three teenage children devoured the food and we needed to order seconds of the Chole chaat (street food) for them. Lovely vegetarian options too. The service was discreet but friendly. It was a midweek in tier 2 lockdown so the atmosphere was understandably a little subdued. Our favourite masala chai has a different balance of cardamom to other spices but that was a tiny issue. The puddings were also surprisingly good.

Amazing food. No duff notes, just delicious course after course. Sea bass, lobster, green curry were our highlights. Street food reminded us of our time in India. Wine pairing was also good. Service from Clifford was first class. Thank you guys!

Lovely restaurant and good service. Very overpriced but being in the middle of Mayfair I guess you are paying for the location.
Was a bit dark in the room and the food was nice and presentation of the food was good.

The menu was a bit confusing resulting in us over ordering.
The starters were outstanding but the main courses average
Felt rushed at the end as they needed our table for another sitting but we were not told this would be the case when booking

We specifically travelled from Liverpool to eat at Tamarind and we were not disappointed. The crispy lobster was a triumph followed closely by the lamb chops with pistachios. Every item on the menu was sensational and we can safely say that this was one of the best meals we have ever had. The atmosphere and staff were also first class and we are looking forward to getting the chance to visit again in the not too distant future

Had a wonderful Very tasty lunch, great service from our young waiter. As it was lunchtime, and with the current situation, it was very quiet - only one other table came in half way through, so very quiet, but didn’t detract from our experience.

My husband and I enjoyed the delicious early evening menu, which was excellent value in pleasant surroundings, just what we needed after a busy day in London. Our waiter was friendly and efficient, the whole experience was pleasurable, we would certainly visit Tamarind again if we were in London.
