We enjoyed all of the dishes we ordered, especially the Veg Galouti Nihari, the Lamb Kheema Khulcha with the garlic chutney, and the desserts! Our server, Marco, was attentive and helpful. We will definitely be going back!

    Good dining experience overall. The restaurant ambiance is very nice, sleek and modern. We especially liked that it was not noisy like some newer restaurants with open ceilings can be. That was a big plus. Service was prompt and courteous. Another big plus. We find that service can make or break a dining experience and usually won’t return if we get less-than-excellent service. Thankfully that was not the case here. Mike was our server and he was great. Finally, the food. It didn’t live up to the hype at all. It was good but didn’t knock our socks off. It’s certainly different from the usual Indian fare at regular Indian restaurants. It’s also pricey, not justifiably. The quantity and quality of the food didn’t match the price. We ordered 4 appetizers and two mains. Our appetizers were really good, enjoyed the yogurt foam in the chaat. That was definitely different! Tamasha fried chicken was quite good also, our favorite of our entire meal. Truffle kulcha was interesting but didn’t really taste much truffle. The mains were disappointing. The chicken pasanda was served as a quarter leg of chicken in the bowl. It was inconvenient and the chicken itself lacked flavor. The second dish was saag with paneer. It was bland and boring. Not sure if we’ll return anytime soon.

    The food was absolutely amazing. I appreciated the recommendations provided from my server for every section of the menu. This assisted with making decisions. The service was a little slower than I would have imagined being that the restaurant wasn’t at capacity. I’m already planning my next visit.

    I made my reservation as soon as I saw that Tamasha NC had opened up their reservations. Even though it was a while away, I was excited to wait! When my family and I arrived, we were warmly greeted at the door by the two hosts. We were seated immediately. Our table was near the door, so it was a bit breezy, but it wasn't too bad overall. Our server, Dane, approached us and he was very pleasant. He was kind and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered our drinks - my husband had an Arnold Palmer, our son had a Coke, and I decided to stick with water. Dane went through the menu and recommended some of his favorites. We ended up choosing the Butter Chicken, Yellowtail Red Snapper Coastal Curry, and Butter Naan. Since our 10-year-old was with us, we decided to share the dishes. When the dishes arrived, they looked stunning. The presentation of the Red Snapper was especially impressive, and my son was amazed. I had the chance to try my husband's butter chicken, and it was absolutely delicious. While we were enjoying our meal, one of the owners came to our table to check on us. He offered our 10-year-old a lentil dish with rice, and he happily accepted. Let me tell you, that lentil dish was fantastic. We all thought the restaurant was well-done. I'm already looking forward to going back with friends to enjoy cocktails, small plates, and more. I highly recommend Tamasha. Make sure to visit their website for important information like the dress code and other details!

    Exceptional-welcome to North Hills. Appetizers-Kulcha was light-flavorful and the garlic dip added zip. The DAHI KE KEBAB was crusty and creamy inside and the raisin dip added more dimension. The •MUSHROOMS PARADISE with truffles was light and flavorful. The lamb shank left nothing to your imagination; very tender leaving the bone clean. North meets South should be the only dessert on the menu! A melt in your mouth delight with a hint of coconut just swimming in the milk! Each dish had complementary flavors and you waited for the next course.

    The restaurant is beautiful. The food was very good. However, this is a restaurant I would go to once in a very blue moon because it was extremely expensive. $20 cocktails and the food price points made this meal around $125 per person! So this is not a restaurant that we would go to often.

Such a family feel, with a fine dining atmosphere and cuisine. Raleigh is excited for this new addition! Also… the coastal fish curry…. 10/10. Amazing.

    The food was good and flavorful! We got a bunch of dishes and the appetizers were def the star out of what we got. In terms of service, it was really slow and unresponsive. We sat there without receiving another bottle of water. Our waiter walked by our table multiple times and did not take the check envelope with the credit card sticking out for ten minutes. Patrons also walked in that seemed to be friends with the hostess at the front and some servers. Their interactions is not what I expect for fine dining at this price point. Yes be friendly but there is a level of professionalism at that price point.

    Tamasha is a beautiful restaurant! They took a lot of care in the design of the space and it is truly a work of art. The food also was artistically plated and tasted delicious. Some of our favorites were the Tamasha Fried Chicken, the Butter Chicken (insane smokey flavor to it) and the Mushroom dish with a variety of mushrooms on an amazing mushroom risotto. The drinks are fabulous and creative as well. Our server was fantastic and the owner even came over to see how our food was tasting. My only issue was the price point. $20 for a cocktail is a price you see in NYC or Vegas, not NC. The total on the bill made it THE most expensive meal we have had in NC since moving here 13 years ago. It was delicious, but the price would prevent me from going again. Even so, I did recommend the restaurant to my friends. A special occasion place perhaps.

    My Tamasha experience was completely awesome. It is a BEAUTIFUL restaurant with a creative and extensive menu. The service is excellent. Our server Lawrence was one of the best I’ve ever encountered — extremely attentive, without being intrusive, great attention to detail, great recommendations and overall knowledge of the menu. The owner came by our table several times to check on us and make sure we were enjoying everything. And of course the food is what everyone comes for and it was outstanding. I highly recommend Tamasha. ENJOY!!!

    We love Indian food and have been eagerly awaiting this. It had been open for about a month when we dined. We waited about 15-20 minutes past our 7:00 reservation. Then another 10 minutes before a server greeted us (we had menus) or even asked about water. When cocktails are $18-22 each and entrees are $30+ (sides extra), I would expect them to be a bit more on their game. Food was great (way better than Ajaa to me) and the chairs comfortable, light fixtures are cool, so hope they iron out the kinks (or lower prices)… glad they are a different option in central Raleigh.

    Lovely restaurant in North Hills, great service. Booked a table for 4, shared 3 appetizers and 4 mains. The food was just okay, not a huge menu to choose from. We We each ordered snapper curry, Byrani, butter chicken, lamb shank, and butter and garlic naan. The meat portions were very small, not diced up in a curry like you would expect just one piece of fish, one lamb shank, one chicken thigh and leg joined with a curry sauce over the top. No vegetables in the curry just sauces the naan bread was very thin and burnt. Expensive bill for the amount and quality of the food. Won’t be back.

    Lots of buzz around this new opening. The restaurant is beautiful. The cocktail and wine selections are great. Starters and small plates were tasty. Have to say, the entrees were the more underwhelming part of the meal. We had an Indian staple, a chefs recommendation, and one that no one had tried before; and all three were ok. That was surprising. Not sure why valet wasn’t available last night but that was equally disappointing. Might be worth another try but will see.
