Waiter was attentive, but not annoying, and kindly helped us accommodate dietary restrictions without incident. (One in our party is vegan and she was accommodated beautifully.) Food was fresh, flavorful, and unique. Menu includes a nice variety of options. Cocktails were lovely. Ambiance is nice and, while a bit noisy, we were still able to carry on a conversation. A lovely evening overall.

We got an early reservation (6pm) so that it would be quiet and calm. We left before 9 and it had gotten quite busy. Delightful staff and delicious food.

My spouse & I continue to believe this is the finest Indian restaurant in New York if not the US, & our end of year lunch bore that out again: excellent food/service/ambiance, constant over the decade (& a location change). Bravo!

Great experience. Our server Vinay was prompt, kind and conversational. He generously brought an unexpected birthday dessert when he found out we were celebrating and was sure to make the night special.

We were here for our wedding anniversary. The drinks and food (minus the kofta dish - tad dry and salty for our taste) was outstanding. I wish the restaurant had done something special since I had noted it in our reservation - but nothing came out from the kitchen or even the ordered dessert not embellished. That would was the only underwhelming part of the experience.

A little formal like a hotel chain but if you relax, the upholstery will thank you for it.

Lamb was awful. Over cooked and dry. Sent it back and ordered another lamb dish which wasn’t much better. Starters were decent. Not a great experience.

Absolutely fantastic. Everything was incredible and we ordered plates to share so we were able to try everything. Among our favorites were standards like chicken korma and chicken tikka masala as well as new favorites like the spinach pancakes and chili crab. I cannot recommend it enough!

We heard about this restaurant while vacationing in Scottsdale. We asked someone, who was from NY, her recommendation for a great meal. She told us to go to Tamarind, and we reserved a table then and there. We were not disappointed. The ambiance was perfect. Our waiter, Vinny, was attentive and friendly, as was the rest of the staff that helped us throughout our meal. The food was excellent, from the tender fall off the bone goat cardamom, to the lamb curry, and all the sides. We could not be happier that the restaurant was recommended and will be back soon.

We’ve been here a couple times and let me just say, the food is never short of incredible! The service always leaves a little something to be desired but everyone is extremely professional and polite. The ambiance is great whether you go on a weekend or a Tuesday night. Definitely worth a visit!

This is the best Indian food in New York. I have been visiting twice a year now for many years and never miss a chance to eat here. The food and service are excellent and the ambience is quiet and refined. It is a little expensive and out of the way but the journey and cost are well worth it.

Tamarind is the move for any special occasion. Two must-dos: order the lamb chops (you will be fighting for every last bit off the bone I swear) and ask to be seated in Vinay’s section (he is incredible! makes the most special experience and we even ask him to order for us based on some guidelines like I want fish my boyfriend wants red meat and every time he has hit it out of the park). You won’t regret it!
