Nice and spacious restaurant. The service was attentive without being too much of a good thing. Food was very good and tasty. The view was good enough to take a photograph to show to my wife. Se was duly impressed! The only minus was the music. The bad was totally unispired. I rather have no music then this band.

In 2012 I took a trip to Mombasa town from Diani-Beach to this Tamarind restaurant for lunch, which was recommended by my hotel guide. I had a sea food platter of lobster, crab, fish, squid, mussels and prawns with a sauce on a bed of rice. Some tasty bread with a glass of wine. This was followed by a delightful... More

Went for cocktails and sushi on a Saturday afternoon. Staff were excellent, the scenery was fabulous and the food divine. Be careful, the spicy tiny shrimp are addictive.

I was staying at the Tamarind Village and went to the restaurant for dinner to get a bit of variety in a week of restaurant dinners all over Mombasa. What a delightful dinner! Unfortunately I was alone and this is a place that needs a group of family,friends or colleagues to enjoy the ambiance. It is a great restaurant with... More

Ask for the dhow dinner trip the value is much better with selections from lobsters, prawns, and steak. Dinner is grilled in front of your eyes as you take a trip with the dhow which sails just before sunset, the trip takes about two hours or more. They also offer lunch trips however I recommend the dinner trip as they... More
