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.

“Tasting menu is incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

My boyfriend is a huge fan of Indian food so for his birthday I took him here and we had the tasting menu. I think it's actually incredible value - okay, it's not cheap, but it's course after course of incredible food. The starters were good, the fish course was excellent, and the mains were so plentiful - the waiter told us that we could have more of anything we wanted, but we couldn't fit it in! Desserts were lovely too. Staff are helpful, attentive and friendly, not at all pretentious, and the restaurant is luxurious whilst managing to be relaxed. It's the perfect place to go if you want luxury food and great service with no snobbery!

“Modern Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Tamarind provide modern Indian food with first class service. The lamb chops are particularly delicious and they do a very good Tandoori chicken for the traditionalists. The staff are attentive and the atmosphere comfortable. My colleague had a Tamarind Surprise which was beautifully executed type of smoothie with fresh ingredients. Oh, and did I mention the lamb chops!

“Probably the best Indian food I have ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

I must say that everything about the Tamarind is excellent, the food is great, the staff are very friendly and professional and the decor is beautiful. The prices are steep and for over a £120 for the two of us without any alcohol the food had a lot to live up to. It did. They were also very accommodating and amended a couple of dishes for my vegan choice.
We spent a very relaxed two hours there and I will willingly return. The waiting staff have the knack of turning up at your table exactly when they were needed, they were unobtrusive but always there when you needed them. And unlike some other Michelin starred restaurants you were made to feel comfortable and welcomed, some such places are so stuffy but not the Tamarind.
We had the vegetarian dawat menu which is a tasting menu and every single dish I tasted was divine.
I am already looking forward to my next visit.

“Thank you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

I wanted to post this review to say a huge thank you to all of the staff at Tamarind in Mayfair who looked after me and my one year old son so fantastically at lunch today. The welcome and service throughout was exceptional and food perfect. Parents traveling alone with a child of any age would do well to come for the set lunch here. It a Michelin starred restaurant but unlike many others, has a warm atmosphere and made me feel very comfortable with my young son. By the way he also loved the food, especially the lentil dumplings, flat bread and rose ice cream. The mint and white chocolate petit four was sensational. Thanks again and see you soon.
