So. Good. in every way!!!! The food was some of the best Indian I've ever had by far. The atmosphere was great. By far the best part of our evening was our waitor, AJ. He was attentive, fun, and had fabulous recommendations. He made a great night into a perfect night!!!

The food was incredible and even our young children enjoyed their first experience with authentic Indian cuisine. Our waiter, Vinay, was so attentive and helped pick out the perfect items for both us and our kids. Vinay made the experience an amazing one. Strongly suggest you ask for Vinay when you visit!

Always the best. I call this the value Michelin star— best in class service, amazing ambiance, and most important great food. It’s fairly priced all things considered.

I always recommend and continue to come back!

We have visited Tamarind several times - the food is amazing and this visit didn’t disappoint in that respect either. Unfortunately the service left a little to be desired though, he was slow to welcome us, and really couldn’t be bothered the entire time. Obviously our party was not big enough to warrant attention! Shame, we’ll be back though, the delicious food ensures that!!

Finest Indian restaurant in NYC (and there are lots of them). Food, service, and ambiance all outstanding. And the Masaledar Lamb chops are the best lamb chops on the planet. Period.

This was my second time to Tamarind and I love this place. The food is outstanding- flavorful and interesting. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service is very good. This is a top notch place with high prices but worth it for a business meal or a celebration private meal.

This was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. First of all the food was divine!! It was so authentic and the flavors were impeccable. Our waiter, Vinay was so lovely and knowledgeable. He helped us find the best dishes on the menu and also recommended excellent drink suggestions to go with the food. He made our experience even more memorable. At the end of the meal, the manager also came over to check on us, and we had noticed him talking to all the tables and being present the whole time we were there.
This was a fantastic dinner and we will be back!!

We had a wonderful meal here on a Friday night. We sat upstairs and could watch the kitchen and the diners downstairs. The food was all superb with complex flavors and just the right heat. Our waiter guided us to dishes that matched well with how he described them. The service was excellent as well.

Great dinner with friends / business associates. Excellent value for the quality of food and experience. The service was wonderfully timed and efficient. The cauliflower and potato dish was proof that a great veggie dish is better than meat. Don't miss though the Tandoori chicken and the rosemary naan. The wine selection is strong - I suggest the reisling section.

I have been coming here for years now and have always liked the food. The service and ambiance is exceptional. However, after my visit this time I was disappointed with the food. Most of the items we ordered were either too spicy or hot and we didn’t enjoy the food one bit. Most of the times we order the same things that we like, this time however we wanted to try other items on the menu and they were disappointing. I will think about coming here again and if I do, will stick to what I typically order from the menu I guess!

We've been fans of Tamarind throughout the years, it's always been a favorite in Tribeca. But this last time we went we were so underwhelmed by the food, I hardly ate any of it. The minced lamb and curried lamb chops were too heavy too spicy and not at all interesting in flavor. We didn't even want the curried lamb chops, we wanted grilled ones, but the waiter insisted we go for the special, which sneakily ended up being $50 on the bill. The seabass main and coconut prawns starter were good, but not spectacular. We didn't order any alcohol, just 2 starters, 2 mains and a dessert, and the bill came to a whopping $200. I feel like the food we had was on par with Brick Lane Indian food (in London), a cheap dining experience costing less than $20/person, yet we paid 5 times that because it's Tribeca and not East London. I was so disappointed, I wish I would've stayed at home and ordered from Seamless. What a waste of money and a night out. We're not going back.

The best Indian food I’ve ever had, out of about 100 restaurants in the USA and Great Britain over the last 35 years. Must be one of the 20 best restaurants in NYC.
