Fabulous creative Indian cuisine, great quality food, with amazing subtle flavour.
The mixed Kebab starter is stunning, I've now had this several times, but the portion is quite large, you could share between two, very nice with a side of Cucumber Raitha.
The lobster Masala is outstanding. Thank you for always giving a great dining experience.

The kitchen came up with novel additions since my last visit. I had two of them, and both were hits. The waiter's suggestion was a great help. The service struck a perfect balance, attentive but never annoying. If you like flavor, request the pickled vegetables. They are not on the menu, but are worth asking for as a side.

Myself and my girlfriend enjoyed our anniversary here, thank you for making it extra special with the chocolates at the end. We both chose the set menu, which was really good, all the courses came out very quickly. They were accommodating to change one of the dishes as well, as my girlfriend does not like scallops.

A really fabulously delicious meal. The spicing was beautifully subtle, the lamb shank was really tender and a large serving too.
All waiting staff were very attentive but not overly so. A lovely eating experience

Background
It was my wifes birthday (11 Nov. ) and i have never been to Michelin star restaurant. There was an unexpected surprise but the manager saved the occasion for me.

Note
Guys going out there or planning to go please note kids below 5 are not allowed after 19:00 and surprisingly it is not mentioned in the website.
They tried making an appointment with their other sister restaurant but there was long waiting time of 1.5 hours.

Good and Bad
Food is top notch, service is spot on ,ambience is not so great. Adjacent tables were in so close proximity that we could hear each other conversation.

The manager made my day.

Love this place. For me, the best Indian restaurant in London and one of the best of any cuisine. Even at the end of service on a Sunday lunch, execution of each dish was flawless. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The room is comfortable. Did I say I love this place? I love this place!

We chose to dine at Tamarind of Mayfair because we were looking for Indian food that was within walking distance of our hotel. I was not ready for the excellent service, precision attention to detail, and delicious food. We chose the tasting menu and were thrilled that we did. We had a wonderful evening and this establishment is on our "definitely go there next visit" list.

The food was excellent and outstanding innovative dishes. However we felt that the staff were very disinterested. The person at the front desk did not smile nor explain that she was seeing if our table was ready, we had to wait at the front door. When we got to our table which was in a good position , but we had to get the wine waiter’s attention and then get our food order taken. As mentioned the food was delicious and well presented but the staff were not engaged. It was a celebration of 2 birthdays and whilst we both got a plate of cake with a candle, it was perfunctorily presented to us.
We loved the food but our experience was spoilt by the attitude of most of the staff. Therefore we would nor recommend to friends. It deserves a Michelin star for food but shouldn’t rest on its laurels as making diners feel welcomed and special is equally important.

It’s been some years since visiting Tamarind, but friends from America were in town and we figured it would be a good setting for the group (of 6).

Great service and the meal was as good as I remembered from days past. Definitely a good place for dine

Visited London from the US and found a fantastic restaurant here. We sampled a little of everything and a few recommendations from the staff. Everything was great, don’t hesitate to order anything not on the menu, the staff will make anything you want.

Wine selection was also very good and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had what we wanted.

My son and I visited last Wednesday and had the tasting menu and wine flight. Everything was outstanding. Although the restaurant was busy, the service was still outstanding. Would recommend for people who like spicy food.
