Food was excellent. Presentation very good, flavorful-and portion size fine,

Service mediocre. Waited paid no attention and it took forever to get the check.

Ambiance modern. Tables tightly packed and restaurant VERY noisy. Ceiling would benefit from acoustic tiles.

It was my husbands birthday and I wanted to be a surprise. I invited his friends down, however the reception staff ruined the surprise by keep on asking me when or are the other guest coming.

It really annoyed me as I then they asked me to downsize. I then got annoyed and told them yes they are coming! And explained it was meant to be a surprise.

They apologised and that about it.

Apart from that everything else was great! Just ruined the surprise!

Our first trip to London and we were blown away by Tamarind. Food was absolutely incredible and everyone there was nice, helpful, and went out of their way to make sure we were having a wonderful experience. The prawn curry and char-grilled lamb chops are must try’s! Next time we come to London, we are definitely going to Tamarind.

the music is by far too loud; the noise level is unbearable; once the starter finished, the main dish is served immediately giving the impression of a factory rather than a restaurant; the turn over of tables seems to be a prime objective. Very poor experience for the price . Never again!

Incredible food with a custom created Chef's menu since I don't eat fish and seafood. All dishes were amazingly full of well-balanced flavors. Great wine list and good recommendations from som.

Cute restaurants with good staff. The food was good, although portions were small for appetizers and it was a bit confusing how the menu was laid out. We ended up ordering various dishes not fully knowing what we would get. The curries on the back page are incredible and what most people would think of to order. Would have been helpful if staff had explained that. As the night wore on, the place got busy and staff less attentive, but overall that’s to be expected. For the price I expected a little more attention to detail, but none the less the experience was great and I would go back again. What mattered the most - the excellent curries- this place did well on! Highly recommend the old Delhi butter chicken!

Again another fabulous evening.

We were again served by Felix who was brilliant throughout.

The wine selection was fantastic and surprised to find some of our favourites on offer.

We will certainly be returning again with family and friends.

Bland food, definitely not worth a Michelin star. Indian food needs to have some spice. Service was poor and we were forgotten about. The only thing that was worth it was the mock-tail. Curry is better in Southall.

From the time we were welcomed at the reception by Elizabeth to the staff like Rakesh and Gavin, the experience at Tamarind is absolutely one of the best of its kind in the world! Mr.Khanna’s culinary creations are simply exquisite and we loved the process of paced consumption! We were able to relish EVERY dish which is unique and ‘truly’ out of this world! The wine list complements the food and the cocktails and dessert are absolutely phenomenal! Thanks Team Tamarind! For creating unforgettable experiences for us!

First time at this lovely restaurant where we were treated so well from explanations of the types of menu, food, to being shown the kitchen and food preparation areas and an introduction to the head chef. Food was delicious and we found the whole experience delightful.

Entres were great. Mains were a disappointment. Never a fan of a place where staff bump into you while you are sitting at the table or where they don’t give way to you when you are walking around - forcing you to give way.
