Service and food were amazing. Truly delicious and service was spot on. Seating was tight of course in nyc. Table had to be moved out to get into bench seat. and we were seated beside extreme loud talkers having a loud but very personal conversation. We really couldn’t converse over them. We ate our food and left. Would go back.

Always great food and service! I’ve been coming to this restaurant for 20 years (used to be on 22nd Street). They have a great wine list and specialty drinks. I suggest that you order a few appetizers and a few meals to share. So may beautiful dished and sauces, you don’t want to settle for just one!

Tasting menu seemed as if all food was premade and dropped on a plate for serving. Lukewarm

Staff was removing plates while our guests were still eating

As usual Tamarind never disappoints. We put our evening in our servers (Vinay) hands.
Everything he brought to our table was better than the last one. Simply delicious and
full of flavor.

I had the halibut -WOW! I took my out of town guest who loves Indian cuisine to Tamarind and we were both very happy with the choice. Not only was the food and service exemplary, but the restaurant itself is a beautiful setting in which to relish them.

Great food, ambience, and service as always. It appears the seating capacity has expanded in the past decade and there are a lot of guests now. I’ll probably be seeming a smaller, more initiate restaurant in the future for special occasions.

Server was professional and the food was good (we had the crab and lentil soups to start, then the bass and halibut entrees). I think we both agreed that the halibut was overcooked, but the flavor of the sauce was still flavorful.

This is a wonderful restaurant. I have been here with my wife for a romantic dinner. We have also taken friends here and this week I took my oldest son for dinner in Manhattan. The food, service and ambience are all terrific. Don't worry about not being an expert in the cuisine, the staff is happy to steer you to a great experience.

Tamarind is definitely in the 5 Star Restaurant level. This Restaurant is our Gold Standard in which we judge Indian Restaurants located in NYC, Washington,DC and London. We have been enjoying Tamarind's for 20 years! The service is impeccable, and the decor is exquisite.

Our granddaughter turned 13 today and she wanted a new and different experience. We were all delighted with the attention and delicious food. Our terrific waiter Vinay took time to explain the menu and to help us choose from such an extensive array of new and unusual choices. We loved everything. The only thing we would not order again was the halibut which was on the dry side. Everything else was delicious.

Saturday night date with my Husband. We love this place !! The Host was very attentive and had the nicest smile . First time here and we will be back soon . The service was excellent , our waiter Vinay was very attentive and helped my husband with the vegan selection. The ambience was great, beautiful, and the people were nice .My husband had eggplants , lentils with Basmati Rice , it was so delicious . My Halibut with rice was perfectly cooked and had great flavor . The manager went by few times to say hello and check on us. We really appreciated that.

Dinner was great. Our waiter was extremely attentive and professional. The food was good, but nothing to call home about. We only had one issue. My girlfriend is vegan and had asked about something on the menu earlier in the night about vegan options. We go through dinner. We get full, we’re thinking about dessert. We ask the waiter what vegan desserts they have, and he said the sorbet and some chocolate cake that has no milk. She asked if it has eggs, to which he replied “yes, but you had the nan, nan has egg”. After her asking about vegan options, he didn’t think to mention that about the food we ordered. It wasn’t a big deal, but it’s frustrating when some sort of common sense isn’t used. That was the only problem though, other than that, it was lovely.

We had made a request far in advance for a booth for a special occasion and the host confirmed when we arrived. When seated at a table in a completely different section, the host shrugged and said no booth available now, completely dismissing us and walked away. Too many great restaurants out there to return to a restaurant that treats its patrons this way. We won't be back.

Food was good, not great and our server was either not very bright or just completely disinterested or something else was wrong with him as we had to repeat and confirm each and everything we ordered multiple times as he was getting it incorrectly each and every time. He then would come back to check on how things were, only to come back and check again less than 5 min later like he was not just at out table asking moments earlier? A very frustrating experience.

Excellent service. Lovely setting. But come for the food. It was beyond amazing. We love Indian food and can’t get very good Indian food where we live. We didn’t think we could get it outside the U.K. Or India. We were wrong.
We cancelled another reservation so that we can come back before we leave the City. Worth the trip.

Happy to have dined at the NYC location at the recommendation of my son who previously dined at the London location. The service was very attentive and the attention to detail was excellent. The presentation of each course of our meal as well as the food itself was great. Loved the unexpected twists to traditional Indian food.
The cocktails were very good as well.
