“Always a high standard”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

The Tamarind (the address given above should really give the location as Pontardawe which is 8 miles from Swansea) was recommended to us. They were happy to do the catering for us at our home for a party of about 20, leaving all sorts of curries, Indian dishes, food heaters, serving utensils and the usual incidentals, spice trays, naans etc., and the standard was very high with enough quantity for double the number of guests. Since then we occasionally visit their restaurant for the Sunday lunch self-serve which again is excellent food at a more than reasonable cost, and call in from time to time with friends in the evening and the staff always remember our names, and are most helpful.

“Superb Food, Superb Welcome.”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

We have been customers of The Tamarind in Pontardawe for many years and the food is probably the best Indian cuisine around! Iqbal and his Staff are simply amazing with always a warm welcome and smiley faces. The whole atmosphere is relaxed and you feel part of the Family. The quality of the food is of a high standard and the menu has a wide varied choice of dishes.
The premises are spotlessly clean and the decor modern and fresh.
On the whole we would totally recommend this resturant to anyone. It is a Jewel of a place!
