Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really enjoyed the meal. The food was superb. Lovely friendly staff. I hadn’t been to Tamarind for many years and I was surprised at how excellent the food and service was.

Seriously awful . No culinary skills at all, does the ‘chef’ who also seems to be the waiter even taste the food he’s serving? You’d not want to eat in as the family seem to dominate the restaurant and there are scribbling pads and crushed...empty cans on the floor so no surprise it was empty. Abergavenny has seven Indian restaurants, this is the worst… but I’d rather drive to Red Indigo in Crickhowell, what’s that? 15 miles from my home, says more than I can sayMore

If I could give 0 out of 5 I would. We ordered take away with delivery from the Tamarind and as well as delivering late they got the order wrong. We rang to let them know, expecting them to correct it. However, despite having charged...us for the missing item they claimed they hadn’t and wanted us to pay for it again plus another £3 delivery charge! They weren’t in the least bit bothered about it. We won’t use this restaurant again and my advice would be that if you do, carefully check what you pay versus what you are given.More

Had our first meal here tonight. Food was absolutely amazing. From the starters to our chicken and spinach balti. Only problem was when we had our bill I thought we had been overcharged and then realised they had decided to charge everything at different prices...as apparently the menu was out of date and they were waiting on a new version. Surely this is unprofessional but also illegal. When questioned all we got was sorry I’m busy and I’m on my own. Great food but check you bill.More

Lamb madras was flavoursome but the prawn shashlick was tasteless and full of food colouring! Overall I would say there are better Indian restaurants in town!!

I did not think places like this still existed. Poor service, stark neon lighting, tropical fish in a filthy tank and a 'music tape' that worked intermittently and that was all before the food arrived. The food itself was bright orange and inedible. We complained...and the manager came out to rant and threaten us - 'Basil Fawlty' style. This restaurant is the stuff of nightmares - enter at your peril.More

We both had the same meal orders Chicken Madras with chips and mushroom rice. Sami...Kebabs to start with poppadum's and pickle tray. My son drank Cobra ale I had Magners cider. Our meals were superb and we both enjoyed our visit.More

We had 5 main meals and sides and a mixture of naan breads. They weren’t particularly helpful with a discrepancy on the price, so we eventually just paid to get out of there. The naan breads were the worst I’ve ever had! Lacking filling and...flavour! The chicken tikka massala was the brightest red I’ve ever seen, but tasted ok. The southern Indian garlic chilli chicken was the hottest curry we’ve ever had, and this is coming from hot curry lovers. We ended up leaving it! I wouldn’t rush back here!More

Ordered and paid via Just Eat. 6 curries with rice/chips bhajis and poppadoms arrived almost dead on time. Curries were all good. The medium chicken curry could have been a bit spicier. I tried my son’s madras (but not as spicy as that lol) -...something in between would have suited me better. Anyway no problems with curries, or rice dishes. Bhajis weren’t the best - not crispy enough. And the poppadoms were inedible - soft and floppy - a real disappointment.More

Hadn't been for a meal here lately, it had always been a favourite of mine, but I was put off a little by reviews on here .I needn't have been the meal was delicious. Restaurant was busy as it was 50% off night, waiters seemed...a little under pressure but service was quick and efficient. Food was piping hot, only one quibble I asked for prawn puree, but was given a chicken one with waiter muttering it was a special puree. I didn't make a fuss as it was really nice. Menus were a bit messy with lots of lamb dishes crossed off and lots of price alterations. They do need to get new ones printed. Not sure why lamb crossed off, maybe streamlining menu a little. There were some lamb dishes available. Customers reasonably spaced out, plenty of hand gels available. This is the 4th Indian or Nepalese I have visited in Abergavenny during 50% discount time and was best meal in my opinion! Can't wait to visit again.More

Popped in with a few friends for a catch-up and some food. Waited 45 MINUTES to be asked what drinks we wanted whilst other customers orders were taken minutes after their arrival. Drinks arrived flat and decided to leave after terrible service. Got over charged...for the drinks and the manager failed to understand why we were upset about the service. Avoid like the plague, SHAMBLES! Footnote: I've experienced better atmospheres at funerals.More
