Tamarind - Tribeca Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I truly enjoyed our experience at Tamarind. We do not eat Indian food often, but our waiter, Vinay K, walked us through the menu and made us feel right at home. His recommendations were right on point and everything we ate was delicious. The decor and ambiance are lovely as well. I would highly recommend a visit to Tamarind if you are in NYC.
Tamarind was a bit disappointing. The food was good but the service was really abrupt and rushed. It’s too pretentious and rates as a pretty average overall experience and kind of needs to lose the attitude because it’s not that special. Overall, I wouldn’t go back or recommend.
The ambience was good. The food was amazing.
We ordered Veg Thali and Kebab Platter, as being Indian and have heard so much about the place we wanted to taste a bunch of things. And also our server was unable to recommend or tell us what their specialty was or what was popular at the place.
Overall the thali was very good, to be specific my favorites were the Harabhara kebab, Dal Makhani, Paneer and mango chutney. In the kebab platter my favorites were the Lamb Chops and Chicken tandoori, the meat was juicy and well cooked, very flavorful. Did not like the Chicken Tikka and prawn, it was overcooked and chewy, prawn was hard.
For Dessert we ordered Rasmalai, the best part of the meal. Having being staying in NYC for long time, i got a chance to eat rasmalai after almost 3 years. This is my favorite dessert and i loved every bite of it. Ended up ordering another serving.
My only disappointment was, we were there to celebrate my husbands birthday. And i had requested them to write Happy Birthday on the Dessert plate via Open Table. So it was Open Table's fault or the Restaurant's i don't know. I am taking out 1star for that.
I would definitely revisit this place for the food and would also recommend this place if anyone wants to taste authentic Indian food with an ambience.
I made a reservation here to celebrate my husband's birthday. We hadn't been for years which is a shame we don't go more often. It really is such a FABULOUS experience that we should try to make it more often. We arrived for our reservation & had to wait a few minutes while they set the table. We waited at their large & lovely bar until seated. We were seated at a lovely 2 top table with the bar on the other side of the banquette. The dining area has super high ceilings with plenty of seating, not super close together. We were greeted promptly by a lovely waitress who was very professional & totally on top of things having given terrific, attentive service on a busy Saturday evening. We ordered specialty cocktails which were fantastic and a good amount of food which came perfectly as ordered. We basically ordered the specials, both apps & entrees, and they were all delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend eating here!
We went for my parents' 25th Wedding Anniversary, which was an extremely special occasion deserving of a special meal. Special it was, from how charming and personable our waiter was, to the AMAZING paneer dishes, and the (free) mango cake they brought out at the end with a candle in it for my parents to blow out. And the owner, Mr. Walia, while sometimes overbearing in how we vigilantly took note of everyone was a pleasure to talk to. He greeted all the customers, which is customary of a Michelin-star restaurant, but what blew us away was when he stared to mop the restaurant entrance when people's jackets from the rain carried water inside. I have never seen that happen before!
Must haves: Amritsari Seekh appetizer, Vegetable Jalfrezi subzi, and mushroom & truffle oil naan.
Improvement idea to the restaurant: Have more than one thaali plate or at least give the option to customize the food choices in the thaali
I love this place. Every time we go its amazing. The staff remembers our names and treats us like family. The cauliflower off menu is the greatest and the Halibut!! If you say you don't like Indian food you have never been to Tamarind. Treat yourself to the Midnight in Mumbai its my favorite drink
This is our go to and favorite Indian restaurant in Manhattan. We have eaten here since they opened and have never been disappointed in anything. The food is spectacularly good as are the cocktails. The restaurant is elegant and lively. The owner is very engaged and the wait staff are attentive and excellent. We were served by Vinay the other night and he is always wonderful. We highly recommend.
Tamarind is exactly what you want from a dining experience! From the moment you walk in the door, someone is there to take care of you. I’ve been working in the restaurant industry for over 20 years in New York City and cannot think of another place that gets every single thing right! The service is impeccable, the food is amazing, and the atmosphere is soothing and delightful. I cannot say enough about Tamarind, best dining experience every time I go!
My 3 coworkers and I went for lunch during restaurant week. Everything was delicious. The chicken tandoori was a little dry - but my spicy paneer dish was heavenly and I loved my lump crab appetizer. It was great to be able to try multiple dishes. Everyone enjoyed. I thought the naan was particularly great too! Setting is cool, white and modern - not what you necessarily expect in Indian dining.
This was a repeat visit, because we liked it very much the first time. The place didn't miss a beat. Everyone seems to genuinely care about your comfort and satisfaction. A fair rating of the experience should be "Excellent" if we were offered the choice, which is somewhere between Very Good an Outstanding. We just don't "hand out" Outstanding except for the service which was a class act. The food rating is based on Indian cuisine (spices, heat, comfort, etc.) not to some absolute. The food was very plentiful and delicious. When the last time you were to a restaurant the offered double Entree? The fish was cleverly prepared (well seasoned yet juicy), the lamb and chicken were very tender with well balanced seasoning. The "Cheesecake" preparation was creative with the use of what seems to be a "Rasgulla" base and the infusion of rosewater; the "Halwa" not so much.
Great restaurant. I visit it when I am in NYC. The best Indian restaurant. Love the setting. Staff are great and friendly. The only downside I experienced was that it took a long time to get the food but the food was fantastic. If you take guests, particularly those without experience of Indian cuisine, they will love it. Highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you.
When it comes to dining, we prefer to go to tamarind. They live up to our expectations and go beyond to ensure the best experience one can have. Modern and elegant setting in a comfortable environment with the wait staff always around to provide gracious service. The menu is so diversified that we always order more than what we can eat. The pickling flavors in venison was unique something we don't find very common. Not to mention the crispy cauliflower appetizer. We will be back soon.
For what they were marketing themselves, as high end Indian food destination in Tribeca, the service was lackluster, the food was toned down and the ambience just okay. —- We were a group of three who went there on a weekend night. It’s been more than 15 mins but no one gave us a menu. I had to call a waiter out and ask for it. And when we were ready, no one was there to take it either. We have to desperately look and call out the attention of one of the waiters who was hiding beneath the wall. Funny thing though is they keep on coming back to ask if everything was okay after the fact that right at the onset, we couldn’t even order. And then paying time came. So we took the bill, split the tab in three and had the cards with notes on how much to charge for each at the back of the receipt. The wait staff still got it wrong and mistakenly charged all the bill to just one credit card. Good thing is he apologized and said that it’s been rectified but it will still come out of my fellow diner’s statement that everything was charged on his card. I wouldn’t recommend this establishment to anyone looking for great Indian cuisine and experience. Poor service.
I absolutely loved this place! Our server he was a polite man who explained the menu and specials my husband chose a special. I’m very picky about my cocktails so he made sure to have the bartender fix up something I liked! He was very attentive and the food was delicious! I will definitely come back here again. The ambiance is nice and they give you a nice warm towel for your hands at the end if your meal which I though was a nice touch.
This place has severely declined in terms of service, which definitely does not live up to the ambiance or reputation. We've eaten here multiple times and over the past year have seen a sharp drop in standards. Waiters are "casual" (translation: sloppy) in how they take orders and serve food and completely mis-aligned with the formal-ness of the ambiance. Service is more suited to a low grade Indian restaurant than a restaurant that used to have a Michelin star.
Amazing food full of spices and flavors. Zesty prawn appetizer and duck rolls were out of this world. Lamb chops, lobster is to die for. Wanted to taste more but we were only two to finish everything. We'll be back soon with more people so we can try more dishes.
