This has to be updated, I've just went there and the building had been demolished. This is what it says in its website: "amarind restaurant, 41-43 East 22 Street, in the Flatiron section, has closed its doors to make way for new building construction. The restaurant moved its operation, including staff and cuisine into its downtown venue, Tamarind TriBeCa, 99... More

We made a reservation & our seating was prompt, even though it was a busy Friday night. Our party was seated upstairs. We were fine, comfortable & did not feel segregated. We saw Caucasians, Latinos, African Americans, Indians & a mix of diners throughout. I must say the restaurant is beautiful, large & trendy. The service was good & I... More

PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY TO THIS RACIST ESTABLISHMENT!! This is the first time I have ever written a review, but felt so disappointment that I had to write one. Just dined at Tamarind 30 minute ago and completely appalled that segregated dining could even exist in NYC especially in 2014. I happen to be a diplomat,... More

I adore Indian food and have it every time and everywhere I get the chance. Tamarind tops the list for quality, freshness and innovation. What a fabulous use of spices and blend of flavors. Every dish is a delight and none will disappoint. The staff is wonderful, and the setting is lovely.

This was my experience at Mr. Walia newest restaurant in Hunterdon County , NJ. The Grill @ Pittstown Inn. The establishment is run by his son or nephew, I believe. Please. DO NOT scream at employees when people are dining! We had the unfortunate experience of the manager(?), Gary, scream at the top his lungs to our waiter. Over a... More

Lunch menu offers some amazing options that you can pick and choose. In my view, it is the best Indian restaurant in Manhattan. Very good service. We also liked the hot towels before and after the meal. The restaurant doesn't allow kids under 5. So family with small kids should avoid it.

This was our third visit to Tamarind but the first to its new location. We loved the charm of the old location. The seating was intimate and the naan oven was a prominent fixture. Not anymore. Lots of hard surfaces and shine. The two levels reminded me of a department store. Our meal was average. The wait staff seemed pushy... More
