I went here with my daughter after hearing a co-worker rave about it. Every part of our meal from the apps to drinks to main course was outstanding. I would particularly recommend the spicy crab appitizer

We had not been for some time and were looking forward to it. We were disappointed. Firstly we had to wait 25mins for our table, secondly and more importantly the kitchen has slipped a lot. We like and enjoy spicy food, but what Tamarind had to offer was bland, rather old-fashioned and uninteresting. A chilli/crab starter was far too hot, with the chilli totally overwhelming the crab making it very unidimensional. Plating was unimaginative with a patty sitting in the middle of the planet with some pink kale for decoration on top. The second starter, lamb patties were also overly hot, leaving no room for any other flavor. One main course of halibut was way overcooked and dry. My entrée of lamb vindaloo had the heat I expected but little other flavor except for far too much vinegar (an important ingredient but should be in moderation. Try comparing that to the magnificent vindaloo at Chola's on E. 58th St., for example.
We will sadly not return.

The quality of the food has declined over the years. It's good, but not great anymore, therefore, not worth the price point.
The service was very variable depending on who came over to attend to us.

We loved everything about this restaurant. First impression: it is beautiful. Service was sensitive and spot on. The place is super clean. There is enough space between tables for conversation. We had the restaurant week lunch. There was a generous amount of food and a lot of tasty choices.

The starters were better than the entrees. We ordered items from both NYC restaurant week and the a la crate menu, unfortunately the NYC restaurant week menu left little to be desired. The crab and duck starters were tasty. We order the mixed seafood and meat tandoori grills, there were lots of flavorless fish on the menu. The grilled meats were better but leaves you feeling heavy but that’s Indian food in general.

Tamarind continues to impress with its 5-star decor, fabulous food, and attentive service. Mr. Walia is always there with his graciousness as a welcoming host. Our waiter, Vinay, was utterly professional, caring for the dietary needs including an allergy to tomato -- he checked with the chef who was amenable to preparing one or two dishes sans tomato. The halibut was fabulous, and the Farsvi bean dish was unusual and very tasty. Leave room for the cardamom creme brule. It's scrumptious.

Always love Tamarind. We make a point of taking our entire staff here during restaurant week, everyone orders different dishes and they are all excellent. Service is great, looking around the room, everyone dining seems happy. And there is virtually no extra noise level to interfere with actual conversations. Such a pleasant dining experience! (And the special cocktails are inventive and delicious.)

I love this restaurant. Please note that we had lunch during restaurant week and so the 5 stars for value was based on a very reduced price: the regular menu is on the expensive side. However, all diners receive the same excellent service and have the pleasure of dining in a truly beautiful and elegant room: there are several areas on different levels. Wait staff is well versed in the make-up of each dish, and patiently explain the ingredients ans spice level. Tamarind is a welcome respite from our challenging lives. I can't wait to go back.

Struck a cord, even with an Indian family where the mother is an uber chef and the father laughs off the idea of paying to eat food that’s made everyday at home! Especially so, when the manager came up saying ‘hope you’re enjoying the food, but we all know it can’t be better than your mom’s home cooking’!

The place is nice and quiet. The staff was very nice. However the food wasn't good. We ordered the Bataki Kosha for our app which was okay but our main dishes where Zameen Doz and Chicken Masala. My husband took one bite of the fish couldn't eat any more. My third piece of the chicken I ate was so chewy, how chicken gets when its cooked still frozen or it's was freezer burned. The cost was 3 times the amount as the place we order in to our apartment and not close to being as good.

We are regular diners at Tamarind and would rate it as our favorite Indian restaurant but I have to say that if this visit had been our first time there, it would have been our last!

We had dinner with two friends from the UK and we had really impressed upon them how great it was. We were seated exactly where we wanted to be seated but our server was just so impersonal and grumbled the specials to us with such little interest that I personally was embarrassed in front of our friends. His service was curt with no respect or friendliness at all.

The food was fabulous as always. However, when we paid the bill our server immediately put an additional two chairs at our table indicating they were expecting us to leave right away for them to set up for six. I am not used to being treated this way in restaurants let alone a very expensive and upscale Indian restaurant.

On that basis, I would be very reluctant to go back! What a pity as we had always really loved it in the last.
