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.

Have been frequenting this restaurant for many years, it never fails to impress. The food ambience and setting is truly outstanding. Visisted their California restaurant also which wasnt on par with London. Overall the best Indian restaurant in London by far. Highly recomended

This is an excellent, modern Indian restaurant. Rang just before walking cross to the restaurant and had got a table with no fuss. Service was particularly good and food was excellent. Modern in that it was very tasty but also well presented and not too much. Starters were good and we both had Tikka Masala which included rice and nan bread. Reasonable value with three course menu - waiter talked us into having desert which we never do after an Indian meal - mango ice cream which was very refreshing. Very busy for 6.30pm on a Tuesday evening.

Went expecting an average curry at high prices. Was nicely surprised to find the food to a very high standard and the service extremely helpful

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!
