A most fantastic meal. The lamb was to die for, and the other meals were excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was excellent. A great place to have a meal.i would definately return, if I lived nearer.

The food is far from authentic Indian. I have had better Indian food in many other places. But the worst part that I noticed is that if you are an ethnic Indian with brown skin colour, you can expect to be seated far back and on the top floor. (As if they want to hide them) The attitude is openly... More

Some cuisines are hard to make "fancy" and I've always thought Indian was one of those. But Tamarind shows that you can mix haute and "hot." Of course , there is high end service, and a great wine and cocktaik list, but what I really noticed was the quality of the ingredients- the shrimp were the great, the lamb was... More

Not finding a suitable place to eat in the Chinese Quarter my wife and I headed on foot to the highly recommended Tamarind restaurant at 99 Hudson Street and Franklin (New York) for an Indian meal. By the time we arrived it was mid-afternoon, so we were more than ready to eat. The restaurant looked new, large, sophisticated, and had... More

There are not many Michelin restaurants in this country, however Tamarind, located in the Tribeca area of NYC, is one of them. Not only is the food excellent, the portions are quite large. The service, décor, price, is very reasonable. It is by far the best Indian restaurant I have ever eaten at. Go hungry, and prepare yourself for a... More

The most expensive Indian restaurant in NY - but the food was very average. The restaurant is spacious, tables are not intimidatingly close to each other. Decor and cleanliness are good. I was surprised that this was the 'best' Indian fare that New York could offer! I was expecting the culinary standards offered in the best restaurants in London or... More

Being from India we do not eat Indian when travelling but if entertaining guests we like to give them a taste of authentic Indian cuisine. This was an excellent experience. Not to be confused by a place with same name in London , this place has great food excellent service. Ask for Omar Khayyam wine to go with mildly spicy... More

The food, OH the food was delicious. We started with a double order of some kind of cauliflower appetizer that I could have just kept ordering for my entire meal. We had a booth on the side, which was perfect for a group of five of us, but would have held up to probably eight people well. That was a... More
