    Very nice dining experience apart from an older lady who I felt was very abrupt and quite rude. The young lady who served me was very nice welcoming and professional. If it wasn't for the older lady it would of been 5 stars all round, I think she needs more training in customer service.

    On the whole a nice night out but did feel it was quite overpriced. Food cooked well but veg etc cost extra ( didn’t realize until food came) For the price I felt we would get more than a blob of mash to go with the meat. Also £3 for a small bottle of tonic to go with the gin? Another thought, I found the menu hard to see in the dim light. Night time menu printed on black background.

    We all really enjoyed the meal and have booked again. Why don't you sell a basic chappati on the menu ? We all thought that was disappointing. The Katsu curry tasted too tomato soup like. Other than that very good

    This is a really striking restaurant with wonderful tasting food and is an ideal place for groups to dine together. It gets a little bit loud in there so it might not suit couples on dates etc

    First time visiting after lots of positive reviews from friends. Food flavours and service were great. Sat downstairs and every time door opened got a blast of cold air, ended up with coat on while eating and food went cold quickly. Only other tables available in same area, so wouldn’t have made any difference in moving. Not best dining experience being cold, along with a small child on next table who was upset. More of family dining than meal out for adults. Not suitable for anniversary date meal, more birthday meal with family.

    I’m lactose intolerant and booked for a date. They had nothing to offer me to eat! Other than chips or side salad I was incredibly humiliated in front of my date. I was left feeling like it was my fault when I messaged the restaurant about what happened. They turned it round on me and really upset me. I’m also disabled and walk with a stick so I had to walk back out to find somewhere else to eat on my first date. I can not believe how bad they made me feel and look in front of my date who I’d never met before! Honestly it was awful and feel nothing I say will matter as they don’t really care. I’ve a video to post as it was such a humiliating experience I cried after.

    Honestly some of the most amazing food I have ever tasted. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. Would go back again 100% for a special occasion but not somewhere we could afford to go on a regular basis. Nice atmosphere, lovely decor and helpful staff.

    We chose 5 tapas dishes and each one was great but not quite enough for 2 people. We could have ordered more but it was busy and very noisy so we wanted to leave. It was quite expensive but the food was great so we didn’t mind. I’d return but at a quieter time of day or ask to be seated upstairs as it was quieter up there.

    Second time I've been and the food is really nice. Issue this time was the food generally wasn't very hot. It was early in the evening so the place wasn't crazy busy. I find you have to keep wrapped up as every time someone walks in the downstairs' through the main door to the restaurant it's very cold. I guess upstairs would of been warmer? Quite an expensive place to eat but really nice food. Just the comfort of downstairs not ideal but not sure there is much they can do about that.

    Generally it was well cooked, but freshness of flavours was lacking; they seemed 'reheated'. Eg the lamb curry was a bit monotonous and could have done with some contrasting flavours or a vegetable in it. Service was great but for that sort of money, the curries needed something a little bit more special or distinctive.

    We were seated upstairs and the tables were too close together, felt like you were on top of each other, and difficult for the staff to manoeuvre. Very expensive £22 for a vegetarian main? Thai green Curry, think they must have ran out of vegetables! Not even that tasty have had better! Most of the staff were attentive and professional. It was busy, however, mainly due to a lack of competition in Mapperley!

    Dined with my partner for Christmas Day lunch. Seated upstairs on a window table, the experience, from start to finish, was faultless & highly enjoyable. Each course of the meal was beautifully presented and cooked with very generous portion sizes. The atmosphere was brilliant and the service outstanding. Highly recommended, have visited for breakfast/brunch before but will return again soon for dinner. Many thanks to all at Tamasha for making the experience such an enjoyable one.

    Myself and my partner visited on Christmas Eve and had a really lovely time it was nice and relaxed just what we had hoped for Christmas Eve, it was a perfect atmosphere and the team were very accommodating. The food was delicious as always and we will be back again with both of our families in the new year.

    Everything tasted the same. This was the third and last time we will be dining there. They have not got sparkling water but a decent Chablis but very overpriced for the venue,tried to charge us £6 for two glasses of tap water.

    This was our first time visiting, it was a very busy Saturday night, our table of 2 was positioned at the end of a very busy table of 10 so the noise levels were very high, we had to wait some time for a menu and then again for drinks. The food was really beautiful but again a long wait between starters and main, it did feel like there were too many customers in the restaurant, we couldn’t hear each other speak so the conversation was difficult, overall it was nice and I would return but not on a weekend

    I love coming to dine at Tamasha. You are one of my favourites! We had to ask to move from downstairs to upstairs as it was unbareably cold, with quite a draft from the front door. If we were unable to move to sit upstairs, there is a good chance we would have had to unfortunately leave. Will be requesting that we always sit upstairs from now on, as it is perfect up there. Food, drinks and service is always amazing!
