The BEST covid layout I have experienced. Completely separated enclosed tables with openings for ventilation all while being warm during 30° winter temps. Outstanding experience.

During this difficult time during the Pandemic, Tamerind has really done an outstanding job, both w their outdoor dining, and with their incredible service. Kudos to them for making it work. I wish them the best of luck.

Tamarind did a great job - always good and it was our best meal since the pandemic - very classy, knowledgeable staff, great food. The COVID booths made it feel as if you had a private dining experience!

Well done!

Creative modern culinary offerings of classical Indian food
Excellent but overpriced cocktails
The owner has created outdoor safe dining spaces with heaters which were acceptable even in 29 degree F temperatures

Considering the outdoor dining experience in the cold temps, we were in our own separate booth away from other customers with an overhead heat lamp. We were very cozy and the wait staff were very attentive. The food was excellent. I would definitely return, however would love to try this again when the pandemic is over and we can eat indoors as the interior looked quite lovely.

This place is AMAZING! The service was very friendly and super nice, and the food was truly outstanding. All the seafood was super fresh , and every single meal our party of 3 ordered was tasty. I personally usually do not like Indian food but decided to give this a try, and now I can't wait to go back! The spices are super mild on some dishes so they are perfect for those who want to try something new, but are super picky and afraid of spice like me. I especially loved the chicken tikki masala, and the crab appetizer. Also their winter set up is very cozy, you get a little booth and there is a heater and I was actually quite comfortable eating dinner despite how cold it was outside. Highly highly recommend this spot :) !

We went there for NYE and it was wonderful. We were in an outdoor wooden, well lit, white cabin with heat. The food was the usual top notch Indian food that we have been accustomed to at this wonderful restaurant. BTW, Tamarind serves it’s regular extensive menu on NYE. We have been going there for years. The service is superb, even in Covid and the food is piping hot- even brought to the outside. The restaurant is truly a treat.

The waiter was a bit pushy on getting out entree order in right when we ordered apps and then again when we got the apps. It was uncomfortable and not the first time that happened. The outdoor dining was decent and heated enough. Food and drinks were good.

The food and service were top notch as always. Currently because of the pandemic they have seperate little booth/nooks that are heated. I was there Christmas night and it was really cold out but our little nook was pretty comfortable. I highly recommend this place.

When you go to a fine dining restaurant, the expectation is that food will be exceptional. Restaurant is commanding premium ( approx 30$ for single curry) and delivering at best mediocre food. Not impressed either with service or food.

Food was excellent, service was excellent. However, sat us by a door where all indoor diners, pick-up and delivery people were in and out of. When dining outside due to Covid, you want to reduce the amount of ppl you are exposed to. Manager was unapologetic and provided us no other option.

I like this place and been there almost once a month last year. They set up a very nice cubicle dining area outdoor which met all the criteria. Food is good as always and the service too.

This was our third or fourth dinner at Tamarind over the last few years...(would have more frequent except for so many restaurants to visit in this town). Mr. Walia was there to greet as usual. Delicious dinner and great service! We will return again!

The food is amazing. I had the chicken from the tandoor oven, which was so tender and tasty. I also tried the lamb shank and it was excellent. It is a beautiful venue and very open so that they are able to space tables far apart so I felt safe sitting in doors. The out door seating they have is on the street and is currently well protected by scaffolding and has lots of heaters. It was very cold/freezing out and windy so we decided to sit inside. However if it was not winding they have enough heaters that I would go for for the out side option since I like to bring my dog. It is a little pricey but totally worth it.

So I’m not the biggest fan of Indian cuisine but for my wife’s birthday I went here- as she loves Indian cuisine.

I had an amazing time at Tamarind. First off from the warm welcome from the host.

Let’s start with the appetizers- I had the PAALAK CHAAT it was amazing!!! My wife had the NIZAMI KEEMA really rich and tasty.

The drinks were spot on at least mine was - I had the Lychee Martini.

Now I won’t lie I can’t even pronounce what I had. But the waiter recommended a off the menu item the goat was seasoned and soft!! My wife got the MILAGU CURRY- also tender and tasty.

Our waiter was super knowledgeable of the menu!! The owner came over to end the night and greet us!!

The food is consistently outstanding, and the presentation is impeccable. Our server, Yuni, though relatively new to Tamarind, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The mixed Tandoori grill, is a great shareable option. If you are a rice fan, Tamarind rice is a great choice.
