Ambience is the best - I dont remember any Indian restaurant in Loudoun & Fairfax with this pleasant and rich ambience

We had a number of appetizers that our group of 12 enjoyed and the main courses were very tasty. Two of the group would have preferred spicier. Only issue was slow service from time to tome on the drinks. Overall very happy.

The waiter was unfamiliar with the menu and we had to keep asking for different things, please bring more water, can we get chutney with the samosas, can we have ice in our drink. Also the waiter changed a couple times like they were trying to help each other out. The food was very saucy which was good (and typical of southern indian cuisine) but it lacked creamy texture and seemed to have a vibrant red, artificial look to it. The vegetable jalfrezi was delicious but the menu didn't list that cheese was also a component and that was a pleasant surprise. The samosa chaat was delicious. The presentation of the food was uneventful. In summary, there are better indian options that encompass delicious, well prepared, well presented food with much much better service.

Food was ok. The service was atrocious, although the restaurant was nearly empty. We were asked for our appetizers order, which then took a long time to arrive. Had I not gotten up to find a staff person, I think they would have forgotten we were there. ( I was ready to just leave some money on the table and leave. Dinner is always available somewhere else.) After the entree, we were able to pack our take-home portions, and a server cleared the table. But it was another 10-12 minute wait for the check. Again, I had to flag someone down to get it. Conclusion: if the dining room is open, it’s necessary to attend to your dine-in customers - not just the take-out orders.

The atmosphere is terrific, the waiter was too soft spoken and required to wear a mask which makes for a difficult conversation. The service was great.

Patrons were sat as far away as possible from one another.

There was ample parking in front of the restaurant. The restaurant is huge and seating is spacious and accomodates different seating preferences. We tried a couple of cocktails (no alcohol) with an indian-twist and both were unique. The service was prompt, courteous and the food was well-presented. The owners took the effort to personally attend to all the customers. Food quality and quantity was really good with reasonable prices. The menu had unique dishes (both appetizers and desserts) that reflected the 'Hyderabadi cuisine'. Menu is largely continental (no south-indian dishes inspite of the name suggesting a typically south-indian fare). There is room for improvement in the decor and ambiance to qualify the overall experience as 'fine dining', but I would surely recommend it as an above-average restaurant for both couples, families and large groups (they have an adjoining party hall accomodating 70 people). We plan to visit it again for their lunch buffett.

This was our first visit here but will definitely be back again. Nice ambiance and food was very good just give you too much. We ordered a mixed grill and grilled lamb with order of fried rice and garlic naan. Enjoyed it all and ended up taking enough home for 2 more meals. Be aware of portions when you order!

Great seating near the front where it’s quiet or be close to see kitchen in action. Everything was the best and it’s our new favorite Indian restaurant. We will be back.

All Indian restaurants feel kind of same after sometime. But Tamarind had a different flavor to even traditional items. The palates are delectable different, and bursting with flavor in the mouth . We tried Kutthu Paratha, Chilli shrimp , Chilli Corn, Sukha mutton and some vegetarian dishes with assorted bread basket. Service was good as well. Keep up the good work. Please don’t allow it to be mediocre as the time passes by. That’s the problem with the Indian restaurants in our area. Hope you will keep your novelty.

Appreciate it! However, it is very disappointing to see your statement of adding extra items to the bill. It is just because you pointed, and as we respect our guests' opinion/choice, I went with your word & refunded the money for items pointed without any say but that doesn't mean we really added extra items to the bill. If you truly felt it, your say is most important for us than investigating into. We look forward to see you soon! Venkat (Owner).

Here is something the restaurant can do: mark the dishes that are not spicy and which were. I had not trouble with spiciness of the food, but there was one person who because of spiciness won't go in the future. Thanks

But it took 30 min to get a waiters attention once we were seated and then never saw him again once the food was delivered. We had to go to the bar for drinks and then again to get the check. If it wasn’t for the fact the food is so wonderful we would not go back.

I totally agree with you, it was the Valentines Day dinner and as it was super busy night, we missed on few checkpoints with our guests for some duration. We have discussed and provided strict guidelines to our staff to be maintained during busy hours. Thank you for your review and feedback. We're confident and provide you better service next time. Once again sorry. Look forward to see you soon !! Regards, Venkat.Aella (Owner).

We're very sorry to see that your experience turned out to be disappointing. We talked to our staff and set some strict guidelines. Usually, Lamb Chops is one of our signature dishes, on that day it was a bad day and a mistake. We're confident to provide the best Lamb Chops with perfect cook, spice-level and tenderness and quality service on your next visit. Look forward to see you soon. Thank you !

Just to clarify, it is not a brand new restaurant. New Management and bought an existing restaurant. When it is purchased, all the Assets, Liabilities were part of the settlement. The Website, reviews (good, bad) were considered as Assets and part of the transaction along with equipment etc. Sametime, we don't want to stop there (eg: 50 reviews) and passionate to build-on & enhance what was before with best quality food and overall experience. Thank you !

In the 45 minutes that followed after we ordered our food, our family (including very young children) were left waiting, starving and frustrated. We had a waiter come up to us ONCE to empathize with us and also to inform us they lost our order. The manager (lady) had an attitude, and she seemed to think we should care about their plight of having to serve us lowly paying customers. I think their food is good judging by other reviews since we never got to the entrees. Mistakes do happen I get it, but they seem unprepared to deal with their mistakes. I would have been completely within my rights to throw a tantrum and scream at a couple of staff but my civility got in the way. That is more than I can say for their manager. Have no intentions of setting foot in there again while I still have my self respect.

We liked the open plan kitchen, you can see your food being prepared by the chefs. When it arrived the meal was excellent and the service was very good. We’ve been looking for a good curry restaurant and this is the best one we’ve found so far in Loudoun County.
