the food was exceptional - quality and flavour. It's definitely not the typical Indian food you know. Staff was great but unfortunately the hostess was extremely rude. Try to arrive on time as otherwise you will have to wait by the bar where it's really hectic with no seats till your table is ready.

This is good Indian in a City with lots of good Indian. It has a good drink menu and a pretty traditional London-Indian menu. The setting is a bit like eating in a basement because it is in a basement and the staff was friendly enough but nothing special. All of our meals were prepared fine but nothing really stood...

When you are out on a holiday, away from your home and most importantly the home made food, One of such places will make you forget such sickness and make you indulge in the mouth watering dishes. Very few restaurants in UK offer the exact same Indian dishes with right amount of spices and meat combination. This one definitely tops... More

Our whole experience from start to finish was superb. The service could not have been any better, staff most attentive without being over bearing, all set in a great ambience. The food, oh my goodness, the food, was fantastic, and portion sizes just right with exquisite spicing. I realise I am slightly gushing, but I am still dreaming of the... More

Tonight my husband and I came across the restaurant by having a lovely stroll around Mayfair When we realised this was Peter Joseph restaurant we timidly ask if there was any chance to dine? Host checked and we were fortunate enough to get a table for two. We were so welcomed from the beginning and not felling like we imposed... More

Tamarind has been around for many years and in my opinion its still one of the top Indian restaurants in town. The restaurant itself is located at basement level. I love everything on the menu especially the options from the grill. If you are in Mayfair I would highly suggest a visit.

Description
Michelin-starred Tamarind presents an elegant take on Indian cuisine from its gilded dining room in chic Mayfair. The inventive menu is rooted in traditional Moghul cooking, with fish, meat and game dishes brought forth from the Tandoor oven in an authentic north-west Indian fashion. Muted tones and attentive service make the restaurant a smart yet convivial destination.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
