The Coastal flavors are evident in the Chettinad dishes, the great pomfret dish. Vegetarian food was a let down...Bit pricy...gajar halwa was ok...overall above average but could be better

Have been going here for a couple of years as it has been considered one of Boston's best Indian eateries. We are finished though, as we have noticed the quality and flavor of the food declining with each visit. Was there a change in the cooks or quality of the ingredients? The recent fish switch was a signal for us... More

I say "surprisingly" only because I don't think of our neighborhood in Brookline as a great haven for Indian food-- but Tamarind Bay is excellent! There's an emphasis on unique fish dishes, many of them different from any other Indian food I've seen. But the classic Indian dishes don't disappoint either-- I absolutely love their okra.

for what you get. Nice in summer too, with the cafe feel. We liked it, but it just seemed a bit pricey.

The spices and dishes offered here are unlike most Indian restaurants in the West. Try the Lalla Mussa Dal, a mildly spicy lentil stew. The biryani is perhaps our favorite of all...more flavorful than anyone else's. In good weather they open the big windows and you can dine alfresco with a view of Washington Square. Or sit outdoors and enjoy... More

We chose this restaurant based upon Boston Indian Restaurant Reviews in the internet. We were pleasantly surprised that from downtown Boston it was a straight Green Line T ride to its location. The ambience was warm and welcoming. The service was excellent. We ordered vegetarian food : Ginger Tomato Shorba, Bhindi Adraki, Paneer Tikka Masala and Garlic Onion Naan, all... More

I went here during the restaurant's "Spice of the Month" promotion. During the 4th Tuesday of the month the restaurant chooses a spice to feature throughout a three course meal. The chef prepares the main course in front of a group guests and a wine specialist pares the courses with three different glasses of wine. At the end of the... More

Probably one of the best Indian restaurants I have been to in the Boston area. The sauces were rich in flavor. Many dishes with coconut milk originating from Goan and Kerala regions. Fish/shrimp and chicken were perfectly cooked. Elegant setting with bar. Staff were friendly though service became slow when restaurant was busy. Waitress failed to bring a side dish... More
