Best indian food in NYC. My server Vinay provided terrific service for my business clients with great recommendations for food, drinks and social experience with small talk and humor!
We have been here many times and have always loved the food! Had the executive lunch menu for the first time today and it was fabulous! We have had Vinay as our waiter most times and he is superb! Knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We always ask for him! This is really the best Indian food we’ve had in the U.S.
Great service from our server Vinay K
Tamarind is our preferred restaurant for birthdays and anniversaries. There is delicious food for everyone and the service is quick and professional.
Food was good but not any better that I can get a lower-priced restaurant. The atmosphere was upscale and fancy pants kind of people if you like that kind of thing. Good place to impress a first date who is not very bright.
WHAT A LOVELY FIND!! CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK! THE SERVICE WAS AMAZING!!
Went for my wife's birthday and use open table to make a reservation there about 4 times a year. They acknowledge we were repeat customers and when we asked to be seated in a specific location they were happy to accommodate on a very busy Saturday. Plus at the end of the night when we didn't order desert and asked for the check it came with a slice of mango cheesecake - yes my wife was so happy she was forced to eat desert. They added some new cocktails to the bar menu and they were A+ additions to their menu. Looking forward to going again.
Great food, beautiful restaurant.
Drinks were terrible, had to send mine back. Then the food came and it was not tasty at all and both my friend and I had indigestion for the rest of the night. Not sure about the Michelin rating and whether actual Indian people are part of that selection committee!
Rectntly went for dinner with a another couple and had a very good experience. The food was varied and excellent. Our waiter, Vinay, was especially attentive and helped us with our order; which was a big help. Looking forward to our next visit!
The food is always excellent, and unlike most Indian restaurants, it is spacious and comfortable. We had excellent service from our waiter, Vinay. He made the evening even more of a pleasure.
HANDS DOWN the best food in NYC! After 18 yrs in NYC and trying almost all Indian cuisine restaurants, I have finally found THE spot- with the most robust, flavorful and delicious plates. The ambiance was perfect and the staff was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. I can’t believe it took me so long to make it there.
Food and service were superb. Only negative comment is we were in a smaller room in the back and it was so loud it was difficult to have a conversation.
Lovely decor. Attentive waitstaff. Delicious food.
Celebrating a family members engagement
Delicious. Staff accommodated dietary restrictions without compromising taste
Loved the food here, it would have to be the best Indian I have had in the city!
Enjoyed it. Food really tasty! Great for business lunches or dinners.
Return customer to Tamarind. I grew up eating Indian food and this is definitely tied for the best I've had. Vinay Kumar provided excellent service!
This is the place to go for conteporary indian cuisine. There really is nowhere better. great setting, Fabulous food, terrific service and even though its high end cost wise, it is worth every cent.
The restaurant was highly recommended by friends and definitely well worth it. We very much enjoyed the food. Good service, excellent food, extensive wine list.
It was my boyfriend Raj birthday, service was outstanding and our waiter Vinay was very friendly and provided us with exceptional service. Thank you. Definitely we will be back. Delicious food!!!
Top notch service and delicious food. I’m typically not a huge fan of Indian food but came here because of a recommendation from a coworker.
Service was prompt and waitress was extremely attentive.
Would definitely be back.
Great food, beautiful setting, outstanding service.
Did not get a booth as requested. All booths were taken. Not their fault. The special shrimp appetizer was a little tough. Everything else was just phenomenal. Great service.
Vinay was awesome. He makes me laugh
Tamarind delivered the perfect post work date nite dinner. We had two special and an old standby. The food was lovely, service attentive, and the experience very enjoyable. The crab Somosas were a nice seasonal twist on an old Indian classic. We had a mango shrimp curry, which was lovely and again seasonal. Finished with a lamb, which provided a nice spicy kick to finish the meal.
I was expecting more from the vegetarian dishes but flavour was very average.
Ok overall but definitely not blown away.
Great location and good attentive service.
Tried the lunch menu, if you want try high end Indian food please save your money and go to Junoon
The food and the service was very good. It is good for groups.
Awesome food, decor, and experience!
Outstanding! We fly to NYC once a quarter from Charleston SC and never miss an opportunity to dine here. Never disappoints!
We loved our meal at Tamarind. We were 8 people and the restaurant was great at accommodating us. They let us seat at the table even before the whole party arrived and we had the best service with Viny. He was extremely nice, polite and very good at explaining the menu and suggesting the best dishes according to everybody’s taste and restrictions. I highly recommend this restaurant not only for the amazing Indian food, but also for the place and the service.
Beautiful space, delicious food. Service was lacking both at the bar (inattentive despite few people there) and in the dining room (waiter couldn’t crack s smile).
Exceptional service and the food was amazing and filling. We ordered the lamb chops (superb) and the chicken t. masala (excellent) with a side of rice and garlic naan. Also, the Monsoon cocktail is my new favorite.
We all loved our meals and the room still looks fabulous. Sat in comfortable booth...shrimp curry special was particularly good.
The food was excellent, and our waiter (Vinay) was very nice. Definitely would visit again!
This place is absolutely amazing! The food, ambiance, service = 5 stars! My partner is Indian and said it’s probably the best “higher end” Indian food he’s ever had! Thank goodness a friend recommended this place to us! We will definitely be back next time we are in NYC!
Excellent food. Great flavors. Lovely setting. One of our favorite restaurants in nyc.
