Came here for a romantic dinner for my wife's birthday and it went down treat. The staff were very friendly, pleasant and welcoming which helped set a relaxing feel to the place. The service provided throughout the night was first class and was not disappointed at all. The food was cooked to perfection and is fairly priced. Would definitely recommend dining at this establishment. The staff even sang Happy Birthday to my wife.

A good friend and I regularly meet for lunch at notable London restaurants. This time we booked Tamarind as we had heard good things.
We chose the tasting menu with accompanying wines.
Simply, this was one of the tastiest, fulfilling and delicious meals we have ever tasted in a lovely setting.
The service was effective, attentive and polite.
The taste experience was incredible, almost unbelievable. Identifiable as asian but not 'heat' spicy, just flavoursome and enjoyable. in every way.
Thank you, we will be back and will definitely recommend.

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.

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.
