Good curry restaurant with reasonable prices

As it was folk week in Broadstairs, myself and my dearest / best friend decided to eat out before watching the local groups. We ended up eating here and ordered some popadoms and of course 2 curries. The popadoms themselves were fantastic and some of the sauces were good too. However 2 of them... read more

Ended up here by chance after appalling service from a nearby restaurant. The service was excellent with very friendly waiting staff and the food delicious. The waiters were very knowledgeable and were able to make suitable recommendations. Definately come back again.

Used this restaurant many times but it is a bit tired and scruffy, the food was not good - our starter was a bit dry and tasted like it had been warmed up, our mains were the same - so dissappointing.

We were here for dinner with some friends. The service was great and the food lovely. Everyone was very happy with their choices. I have asked if they could make a chili naan for me as it was not on the menu and they were happy to accommodate me. I like very spicy food and the madras I have ordered... More

Staff took a while to warm to us think they felt overwhelmed with not enough staff but service was eventually good. Good food all the classics were happy to make a chicken version of a lamb dish that was on the menu.

The restaurant looked fairly busy when we walked in and we were seated straight away. The appearance of the restaurant is bright and appealing. However, we seemed to be sat waiting for a long time before our drinks order was taken, and then it took a further 10 minutes to bring out two beers. It then took another 10 minutes... More

We had evening meals at the Tamarind on Friday 10th April. The food was good but was spoilt by slow and poor service. Drinks took ages to arrive and an order for a bottle of water never arrived despite two requests. Nevertheless we were charged for it on the bill. Things didn't start well. The popadoms arrived without the pickle... More

Cold, bland, boring, tiny portions of the worst tasting, chewiest indian food i have ever eaten. Took well over an hour to arrive and when we complained it took another hour to get a replacement. Shocking restaurant I want my fifty quid back!
