“I'm a fan of curry and this place makes THE BEST CURRY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

I've been going to the tamarind spice for years and I have not yet been to another Indian restaurant that has matched their quality of service, food and atmosphere. You can always rely on this restaurant if you want to go for a meal out, you won't be disappointed and will want to go back. It might not be the cheapest restaurant out there but that's because they don't serve you rubbish! I would say its average price compared to other Indian restaurants prices anyway.

“Excellent curry house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Tamarind Spice is a very good, solid curry house.

Don't get me wrong, you won't get anything fancy.

But what you will get, is great Bangladeshi and Indian food, well cooked, at a reasonable price.

Staff are nice, helpful, accommodating.

Highly recommend.

“Tamarind Spice girls night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Girls curry night, booked a table thankfully it was a very busy Friday.

Food is excellent and you get plenty. It took us a while to choose what we wanted and the staff were patient with us. We were to busy nattering to look at the menu, but we eventually all chose. The atmosphere and décor is great. Having been revamped a year or so ago the Tamarind Spice is still just as good as when it was the White Castle.

Only down side is they no longer do themed nights.

“Excellent sophisticated Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I recently went here with my wife and my daughter and son-in law. Very pleased to see a clean fresh modern decor, not a piece of flock wall paper to be seen. The service was welcoming, pleasant and prompt. Staff were very helpful and accomodating, assisting with the menu.

Food was really good, excellent range of choices, well cooked and presented. My wife said her Tikka Masala was the best she has ever had - and she's had a few !!! Busy restaurant so it is better to book a table; but its not crowded or noisy so you can have a personal conversation without the chap on the next table joining in !!!

Well recommended will be going back when we're visiting my daughter next.

If you can't get a baby sitter they do as good a take away service as you'd want !!
