This lovely place never disappoints. The food is always excellent. The executive lunch special is an extraordinary value — I had enough leftovers for dinner. Delicious.

Great being back. Thank you for a great meal. Acoustics are tough on the upper deck. Hard to hear those you are with. That said the food is delicious and the service is top notch. Very very enjoyable. Will continue to support!

Tamarind just became my favorite New York City restaurant. Our dining experience was perfect in every way. The room is beautiful and calm--very conducive to quiet conversation and dining enjoyment. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious, with nuanced flavors and an excellent set of choices. All in all, an A+ rating goes to Tamarind, for sure.

Very poor food (overuse of ghee) and didn't have the first two things we ordered. Waiters were stretched way too thin which resulted in bad service. The bathroom was disgusting and hadn't been clean in a long time (paper towels and toilet paper all over the floor). Complete waste of time and money.

Poor service , food took exceptionally long to be served at the table , did not get the dessert from the executive lunch ordered. No one checks on you while waiting for food to be served for more than an hour.

Usually very consistent - however, since the pandemic the quality of food has substantially declined. The service remains excellent - particularly from the waiter name Godfrey.

Amazing food for great value. It’s a very nice restaurant with and elegant feel to it. The chicken tika masala and the lemon rice are magnificent. But the chili crab is just out of this world.

The serving staff kept asking if we are still working on the food multiple times. The strange thing was no one else around our table was being asked that question.

Apart from this it was a good experience as always.

The service was absolutely horrific. The service spoke so low that we couldn’t understand her. When we asked her to speak up, she seemed annoyed. We ordered two bottles of wine, both that needed to be decanted. She didn’t even know what a decanter was and took over a half hour to finally decant both bottles. She seemed completely unaware of how to serve in a fine dining restaurant and overwhelmed by our reasonable requests. We love Tamarind, but after this experience are quite hesitant to return.

Mr. Walia has done it again. He's brought us out of lockdown with style and elan. The food is great as always and he has provided a completely safe environment inside and out. We look forward to dining in one of his miniature dining rooms outdoors on our next visit. This time we were seated in a lovely banquette, well distanced from others.
He is a wonderful and welcoming host and the staff are all poised and charming. Class all the way.

Food was outstanding. Atmosphere was elegant. Service rushed us along in an unacceptable manner. We were having dinner--appetizers, entree and would have had dessert and a coffee. Food came quite slowly but what was amazing was the aggressive way they tried to clear our plates both at the appetizer and at the entree stage before we were actually done! One of us was lingering over the entree. Waiters, and eventually the maitre D came by to nudge us along. We finally felt so pressured that we skipped the dessert and coffee and just surrendered the table. I looked at my watch as we walked out of the restaurant. We had been there just under two hours. So at 90 minutes they were heavily nudging for us to hurry up. That seems so inappropriate especially for a restaurant where you are prepared to spend hundreds of dollars.

Tamarind has always had elegant and spaced out seating indoors. But they have created a lot of outdoor space that is just spectacular. A lot of thought has gone into making it beautiful and private. The food was amazing, but my favorite part was the courteous service. As an Indian, I do not go out to Indian restaurants too often, but Tamarind is one place I see myself going back to. I hope the outdoor seating becomes a permanent feature.

I now understand why people rave about Tamarind - everything was tip top. Food was flavorsome without being overpowering and portion size was excellent (rather than excessive).
Wine list varied and sensibly priced. We like dry Riesling with this style of food and chose a nice French Schlumberger.
Definitely coming back and soon
