A quiet night out

We'd missed valentines day but were still looking for a meal out, the Tamarind was deserted when we arrived, a bad sign we thought but we were wrong. The staff were friendly without being pushy. The room was well laid out, you weren't too close to others. We thought the menu range was good and... read 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!

I ordered a takeaway to be delivered. Ordered the food at 6.12pm and it should have taken between 45mins and1 hour. I rang them after 1 hour and was told it would be a couple of minutes and that "the food was on it's way". 20 minutes later I rang again and was told it had left the restaurant 10... More

We ordered a takeaway meal to be collected half an hour later, upon arrival at the restaurant, I was charged the full amount for the complete order. It was after this that I had a wait of half an hour while the food was cooked as it had not been prepared. The order was piled into a single plastic bag,... More

I loved the Niramish! Tamarind is a nice place for vegeterians and non-vegetarians!! Far from being expensive with great food. I recommend it!

My partner and I drove over to Broadstairs one evening and decided to pop in here for dinner. We had a look around at other Restuarants in the town but being a Vegetarian, there wasn't much choice. We came across Tamarind and decided to give it a go as we have noticed before that it always looks busy. We went... More

The restaurant gives the impression of being classier than it is. Since they offer south Indian dishes, we tried these, but were disappointed with 3 of the 4 main dishes which really tasted similar to each other. I suspect the chef used the same tomato/onion/spice base evenb though 2 of the dishes were supposed top be based on cocunut. The... More

Arrived at 6pm to order a takeaway on a quiet Monday evening. Order taken and food was supposed to be ready in 15-20 minutes. I sat and waited, and waited and waited some more. After 45 minutes I asked where my order was and as if by magic it appeared. Clearly the staff had completely forgotten about me even though... More
