“As good as India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This restaurant served me the best meal of my 10 day stay. It was really well prepared and had a great blend of Indian spices and flavours. I easily blew the company budget without trying, but it was worth paying the extra to eat well for a change.

“Wonderful array of tastes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Foodies looking for interesting gourmet Indian food will not be disappointed at Tamarind. The highlight of our meal was a fried cauliflower appetizer in a mouth-watering (not hot) sauce. The cauliflower was cooked perfectly, not easy to do. The portion was so generous it could have been an entree with rice. We also had a duck wrap appetizer, shrimp special entree, fish curry entree and a spicy chicken entree. All delicious. Ambience is modern and white tablecloths. Service was excellent. With the restaurant half full on a week night, the noise level was quiet, which was important because we were catching up with old friends. The friends are from NYC and were quite impressed by this restaurant as were we.

“Better off dining somewhere else”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Decided upon Indian cuisine for my dinner with business partners. Tamarind was the choice, and also the disappointment of the day. Started with waiter filling up sparkling water with tap water. Glasses were exchanged, the new bottle of sparkling water charged. Three of the 7 meals ordered were close to tasteless, especially the fish curry. We complained about it to the manager who after an insincere apology still decided to charge is for all the meals and water ordered.

Honestly, there are other Indian places in town with better cuisine, so avoid this.
