After waiting 20 minutes to place our first order for drinks, we almost felt like giving up. Yes it was a Saturday night, and the place was approximately half full, however, we felt that perhaps they were running short of staff. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Mixed veg entree plate for two was reasonable, with six pieces... More

Close to the station. Service: Ok but wouldn't let me sit where I wanted, even though it was almost empty. Food: Entree pepper chicken - nice, spicy. Main lamb vindaloo - good, medium heat, aromatic. Saffron Rice + Fresh naan all washed down with a couple of ice cold kingfisher Beers. Smaller portion sizes and over $20 for a main,... More

We had an early dinner our first night in Leura, not much veggie choice, what we had was tasty enough, but the vindaloo wasn't hot enough.. Friendly staff, would go again.

Enjoyed a nice Indian meal here which was located near to the Leura train station. The naan bread and rogan josh were tasty. Afterwards, you can buy some goods/groceries from Woolworths which is located within walking distance.

Decent food across from the train station at the top of the main Leura shopping area. Easy street parking. Food was good; nothing particularly amazing or horrible. The bathrooms smelled like an outhouse.

Must admit we wee apprehensive as when we arrived as the place was totally empty. It must simply have been a quiet Thursday night for eating in the restaurant although the takeaway was constantly busy with people collecting their orders. We ordered a dish each plus Entrees to share. The food was hot temperature wise but we had asked for... More

Ring the boys at Tamarind as you come through Lawson (remember to use hands free) and your food will be served when you get to Leura. Alternatively phone an order for home delivery and the Tamarind team will have it to your door within half an hour. Nothing is too much trouble, the portions are generous and while there's more...

My wife and I have dined at Tamarin several times. The first few times it was the night they had the buffet (all you can eat - fixed price - good value). The last occasion was recently when we were dying for Indian, and our favourite Indian restaurant in the mountains - Anki's at Katoomba - was closed for a... More
