Went on a Sunday evening and took advantage of the all you can eat bufet ,A very reasonable price but still would like more variation in dishes as seemed to be very limited,Also was surprised...

The restaurant was empty on a Friday evening which should of been a good indication but I stayed never the less. We went as a couple and had cold ai conditioning blowing on us. 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

When we fancy a curry we don't go anywhere else as the Tamarind Tree is just amazing! When we took my parents, my mum stated it was the best curry she's ever had! 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

Food was fairly nice and didn't take long to arrive! For what the meal was it was nice, nothing special and seemed expensive for four of us. I wouldn't rave or sing about it, I am undecided as to if I'd go back or not yet. The food tasted fresh and was nicely spiced across the courses but I couldn't... More
