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.

Great Indian Cuisine!

Flavors, texture, variety, this restaurant has it all. The customer service is impeccable and the ambiance is relaxed and romantic. My only complain is that the curries were rather sweet, not at all spicy! Would definitely return but I would say some other restaurants in London, are closer to... read more

Excellent Indian restaurants that continues to deliver Michelin Star quality Indian food with a modern twist without being overly fuzzy or too removed from the originals (Cinnamon Club). Good service. Good portions.

Ate of the weekend lunch menu, you get so much tasty food. Went for the matching wine paring which worked out an extra 10GBP for 2 glasses of wine. All the food was... More

Only two of the six in our party thought they were fans of Indian food. Now, everyone is an absolute fan. This is an upscale Indian restaurant and the ambiance and the food were exceptional. The service was great as well. It is best to order multiple dishes and share.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
