Impeccable service and excellent seafood!

One of the best dining experiences I've had anywhere in the world. Tamarind more than made up for the horrendous traffic leading into Mombasa! We sat outdoors for more than two hours.

I had to set up the arrangement from Ethiopia and thus timely response to my emails was very important to me. The reservation staff are on... More

We took our seats as the only group in the whole restaurant and placed our orders without much fuss. We waited for quite a while to be served our food and when it did eventually... More
