    Deserves all of the hype and praise! I could not recommend enough, best Indian in all of London and far exceeds anything I have had in my life. We were sat in a canvas booth which for our party was especially quite and private. The food was truly next level, the naan, fish, fried lobster, and ABOVE ALL the biryani. The was topped with the most delicious pasty which was cut and plated table side. I also got a rhubarb crème brûlée which was surprisingly light and the perfect way to end the meal. But our dinner could have been complete and without the truly outstanding service by Austin and his whole team. I not only felt well taken care of but my allergies were noted as I was guided through the menu. Above all I think we all felt lucky to have such a personable experience with the waitstaff in one of the most amazing restaurants. I would go out of my way to try and I know for a fact that it won’t disappoint!

    It was a special evening with our Welsh friends, and the last night we would be together so we wanted to go to a very special place. Tamarind had been recommended to us by many and it did not disappoint. It is an opulent buddy comfortable setting, where the entire staff makes you feel at home. However be sure that your credit card has plenty of room on it for the prices are not light..

    If you are looking for a different "Indian" food experience, something elevated to another level Tamarind could be for you. The weekend set menu at £35 - worth every penny. The desert - definitely not typical Indian - but exceptional

    Brilliant Restaurant on every level... from the welcome, service, friendliness and food. The food is superb and authentically Indian. Not fusion, no trendy foam or other nonsense. It’s in Mayfair, though there’s no snootiness amongst either the staff or clientele. Tamarind is fabulous!

    A birthday celebration always calls for something special. Well a visit here proved just so. We had the gourmet tasting menu with accompanying wines. Not cheap but well worth it. Each dish was excellent and the accompanying wines were perfectly matched. The service was exemplary and with just the right degree of informality. Go, you won’t be disappointed

    Outstanding. We visited for lunch on a Saturday and could not have had a more wonderful meal. From the tamarind cocktail to the best seabass I've ever tasted, and lasooni palak that I would eat happily every day for the rest of my life, the meal was fantastic. The service was wonderful - friendly, attentive and helpful. Our server actually took us down to the open kitchen to meet the chef and see the team at work. There is a very reasonable set menu for lunch that offers great value, but the a la carte also offered great value and smaller options so you can try different dishes. Highly recommend. We'll definitely be going back.

    A very nice, upscale Indian dining restaurant. Some of the dishes have an exceptional flavor, however, some of the curry flavors felt dummed down in terms of spice. That being said, it’s a very pleasant / posh experience!
