A tasty meal and not too spicy. The place seems clean and the staff are attentive. The draught lager was good too.

I visited Tamarin over the weekend and it was beautiful experience. Delicious food with real Indian taste with excellent service. Staff is so friendly. Chef visited us for feedback. Manoj Kumar owner of the restaurant made our evening. I will visit again.

Needing to get take away as had the kids with us, we thought this would be a good choice. We were very wrong, Butter chicken, lamb Korma a couple of naan and some pickles over $80 Both dishes tasted the same and were overly sweet, and had far to much heat and fresh chilli throughout. The keema nan was inedible... More

We arrived a bit late on a hot day into Leura, as you turn into Leura from the great western highway this is probably the first restaurant you come across ..right next to the railway station. Very basic set up we went in with zero expectations. Food was made to order, we ordered no spices and they served us just... More

This was probably the worst Indian we have had anywhere in the world.The Madras tasted like tomato soup with some peppers and next to no spice. The Dansak might have been chicken soup with no seasoning. The papadoms were soft,cooked 6 hours ago. Avoid if you want a spicy curry. The chef could not have been Indian. You would do... More

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.
