“quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We arrived early on a Tuesday night and were the first in, though the place filled whilst we ate.
An extensive menu with lots of dishes, as well as the usual ones there were many that were new to me. The 5 of us all chose different dishes and every one I tasted was good.
I thought the service was good as well

“Good enough for Gordon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The very top of the tree, award winners, visited by Ramsey when he is in Brum. Very reasonable prices and a great selection from a talented chef

“Top curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Was on business in Birmingham and staying at the Premier Inn down the road, took a walk down to Cafe Tamarinds and was not disappointed. It does an excellent curry and is very well priced, I had a starter, main and two beers for just over £20. The menu has a great selection and the service is excellent. Plus Gordon Ramsey has been here so it must be good!

“Always a warm welcome and fabulous food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We eat regularly at Cafe Tamarinds. The staff are very welcoming and the service is first class. There is a wide choice available on the menu and the food is excellent every time!! This is by far the best Indian restaurant in the area.

“Never ceases to amaze!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We are regulars to Tamarinds and live very locally. Having tried all 3 indians in the village, Tamarinds is by far the best! The food is consistantly amazing, always fresh, hot and served with a smile. We love going every sunday for dish dash dining, which is great value for money, but the quality and quantity of portions is NEVER compromised. Being a family, we do not like hanging around for food to be served and Tamarinds always ensures that the food is delivered within a reasonable time, without being hurried. The staff are all really friendly, engage in converstaion and are very attentive to both our children. It is so good, we even went there on New Years Eve and were once again amazed, they catered calmly for a great number of customers. No doubt we will be returning once again this New Year! BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT!
