“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I was away on business and dined here, the food and service where superb I would recommend it. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars thought the drinks were a little exspensive but well worth a visit would definitely go back :-)

“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.
