Good indian food, different (in a good way) from many other indian restaurants, nice service. the design of the restaurant has nothing special.
Food was generally good and on a level with other high end Indian Restaurants. We had the tasting menu and in particular the prawns and the chicken were good. However there were far too many mistakes with the food and the service was poor.
Food - it took half an hour to order and I asked 3 times. The starter took an hour to come (a salad). Two of the warm dishes were not very warm and I wonder if they were on the pass too long. The chocolate desert looked good but was tasteless.
Service - frankly not good enough. We were first given a table next to the service station which meant waiters were bumping into our chairs. We asked to move. It then took ages to order. Our wine and water glasses were constantly empty and when we finished our wine the sommelier took our bottle but didn’t offer more drinks. The sommelier and waiters seemed much happier chatting to each other behind the bar than topping up drinks.
The ambience and decor are nice and high end.
Overall a poor experience, over priced, lack of attention to detail and service.
Stunning interior no doubt created by a designer at great expense yet feels very welcoming. Staff are attentive.
Food is creative, well cooked and a modern fusion take on Indian food which on the whole is a stunning success (I only tried vegetarian options). Only minor reservation was the interesting take on the traditional gujar halwa, which was not to my liking.
Booked tamarind about two hours in advance and got a table online. Service, food and atmosphere was lovely. Staff were brilliant and very friendly. Will definitely return soon.
Excellent food served with excellent food This is my favourite Indian restaurant in London. Have been going there for 25 years. Has been recently refurbished. Particularly liked the sea bass starter and the lamb main course
Tamarind has had a beautiful, sleek makeover and the food has been taken up to an unbelievable level. Truly my favorite restaurant in the world and every time I come to London, it is on the top of my list.
Wonderful as usual!
A true authentic palette of flavors! Perfectly matching cocktails!
Great Food and Service, Refurbishment very successful
I’ve been going here since the early 90’s first time back since reopening. Very disappointed. Old winelist had some gems on it now its all commercial rubbish that’s overpriced. Sartori Amarone? Really? Umani Ronchi Verdiccio? Are we back in the 80’s? Wake up. Its Mayfair we want the Burgundy’s back the hidden gems the hard to find wines. Asked for spicy food got mild twice. Sauces sre thinner and the legendary giant prawns are not the same with tomato sauce on them. I heard the old chef went to Belgravia. Looks like Chutney Mary’s is now my fav. In London sorry but very disappointed.
Cuisine pleine de saveurs et raffinée !
Best chicken i've ever had...
Fantastic food as always although the paneer tikka could have done with something alongside. The Chicken Tikka Husna and the Chilli Sea Bass were delightful.
Having considered the old Tamarind to be the best Indian restaurant in London, we were really looking forward to visiting the newly refurbished Tamarind. Sadly we were deeply disappointed by our visit.
Whilst the venue is bigger, it has lost the previous ambience of the restaurant with the bright lighting and the tables being so close together you cant help but hear others conversations.
Moving on to the menu.... the newly revised menu is a far cry from the old menu, since when have Rabbit kebabs and sheep's Brain been an Indian delicacy??
Having ordered a fairly expensive bottle of white wine, we were told that the restaurant no longer has ice buckets; Really??
There were a number of staff scurring around the place, but appeared to be clueless, without the ability to explain the dishes on the menu but reiterating the party line of we have a new menu.
Overall it wasn't a pleasant dining experience and I would certainly not recommend the new restaurant and will be on the search for a new favourite Indian in London.
Fantastic food and impeccable service even though we were the only guests when we arrived at 5.45pm.
Service can improve.
Indian culinary expirience can improve.
It is a very good experience. Everything is good. Especially the grill and naan.
A nice restaurang, which tried to be more than it was.
Good service, although we had to ask them to pour us more wine several times. They left it so far away we could not get it ourselves.
Food tasted nice, except when we made an extra order, where the meat was truely undercooked.
My family and I came to the tamarind on Christmas eve as it is our tradition to go out for lunch on xmas eve. We really looked forward to our meal and the restaurant came highly recommended. Unfortunately it was not a pleasurable experience because as we finished our dessert a mouse causally sauntered across the floor! It was a shock! A mouse at 1500 in the afternoon on the second floor of a top restaurant. Clearly an indication of a bigger problem. We immediately wanted to leave as the staff started pulling out furniture chasing the mouse. They had the cheek to only give us a 20% discount, on the basis vermin is a problem in London! Can't say that I've seen mouse casually walking across the floor mid afternoon in a restaurant before. We came home and felt sick because if a mouse is on the second floor, what is in the basement in the kitchen? I tried to get our meal refunded but this was refused...
The restaurant is nicely decorated and is nice and clean.
Food was outstanding. Different fusion of flavours than the usual standard Indian so it was definitely worth going to. It is fine dinning, so do expect to pay more than normal prices but portion sizes were good. Will be going again to try more items from their menu.
Nice place, nice people, nice food.
Only issue really was timing of arrival of some food (and implication that because it came from the 'second special kitchen' we would have to accept that dishes might not arrive together or quickly). In fairness when we pointed out our delay, the manager apologised and made a concession on the bill.
Overall pretty good - but would have been amazing without this.
Big problem with timings ... we were told that starters and mains would arrive 'when they were ready'... in the end we cancelled the rice which still hadn't appeared after we had finished !
Great food and so much variety compared to the usual Indian restaurants. Service excellent and they really give a great explanation of the dishes and are happy to make recommendations.
Food was nice but you don't get a lot and it is quite expensive - feedback from our Directors from their recent lunch
Waited for a long time to go back to Tamarind due to the refurb. This used to be our favourite Indian restaurant. The new refurb is nice, different to the old place though- some will like it, some may not. The food however was very disappointing. A couple of dishes had great flavour, as you would expect, but finding a piece of plastic around 20cm by 5mm in one of the dishes was not what you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. This put us off the meal completely and well, not much of a birthday treat. The staff were apologetic but their only solution was to not charge for that dish ... hmmm, all very disappointing. We didn’t contest anything, finished quickly and exited as soon as we could. Hope things pick up there.
Absolutely wonderful food. Best Indian in town.
Owing to unavoidable business issues we were 45 mins late, but they accommodated the 3 of us brilliantly and hassle less, we had a lovely meal in a great ambiance. Will go again soon.
Lovely food with a great ambience, been once before & it maintains its own high standards, newly refurbished & is beautifully fitted out throughout, will return & would definitely recommend
Nice meal had a great time, nice place and atmosphere I recommend
The food is absolutely horrible! Prawn curry and chicken tomato is flavorless and very bland; lacks seasoning. Chats were very minimal and lacked any character.
Fantastic service from beginning to end. Masterful drinks at the bar, sublime starters, succulent grills, and probably the best biryani I have ever had.
Very slow service. Food quality was also average.
The food was outstanding. We were concerned that it might not be as spicy as we generally like when having Indian food, but ordered straight from the menu and were not disappointed. The chilli lobster and lamb osso buco were our favourites! Both perfectly spiced and flavourful. The sprouts, with chestnuts, were a real treat.
very disappointed with the new menu and change of direction in the same. having visited Tamarind on each visit to London for the past 15 years and loving every meal, I must say I will no longer visit based on the new menu. while the food was very good, the portions were demure and not the traditional Indian food we have come to know and love from Tamarind. The value for money was poor and we will now seek out other restaurants within the genre.
I have been there once I liked their starter very much. Lamb ribs was the best I had.
Starters were great to start with, but that was the only good thing. The main course / desserts was very average. Too noisy.
Portions were very small and not v tasty. They had better vegetarina options before renovations.
Not value for money. Visited Chutney Mary the previous week which is much much better from a decor, ambience, menu, food and drinks point of view. But the price is the same.
Not worth the price. I was expecting great tasting, nicely presented food but got moderate food.
The food was different but expected better attention to detail.
Cutlery was not spotless. Presentation was no great!
