The Tamarind Tree in Wokingham, not Reading is certainly one of the best Indians we have eaten in. Prices slightly above average but food makes up for that. The selection of dips to accompany the poppadums' is completely different and is much better than the usual selection from other restaurants. We like our curries drier, not swimming in oil and...

When we asked the waiters to switch it off then we were told they couldnt. We had to move to another table. The waiters forgot our... More

Slow service, food was terrible, cold food and plates,, waiters could not be bothered to clear starter plates before main course, 40 minutes between courses, 10% discount for a ruined night out was an insult. Staff made no effort in even the most basic elements of customer service, The worst food and service I have ever had, they could do... More

The food has never disappointed (although tonight's jalfrezi was a tad too hot for me, but that was my fault for choosing it as I thought I... More

I had a lovely hot chicken jalfrezi and a coriander naan, full of flavour and spice but not so hot you... More

We went to the Tamarind Tree for the Sunday buffet, two adults, two children and a teenager. Very pleasant staff and almost too attentive but as the restaurant was empty when we arrived that wasn't unusual. We were shown to a very well presented table in the conservatory with splendid views down to the Thames where our orders for drinks... More
