With my wife I visited the Tamarind and it was great! Service was nice and very experiend with wine. We had some interesting discussion about wine. Menue offers interesting combination of food and typical portugal kitchen. You can ask everything, they help you out. In total, perfect!

We used a voucher to eat a meal for two. It's a little restaurant, very clean and with soft music. The food is fantastic, very tasty but different from our portuguese dishes.

I like Indian food and for me the Tamarind is one of the best Indian restaurants. It´s small and the outfit is quite simple. However service is exceptional friendly and the food excellent. I will definitely come again.

The garlic naan was exceptional ...... More

After a week of so much Portuguese food it was a nice change to try this Indian restaurant The service was attentive but not obtrusive, the food was a bit slow to come out but it was worth the wait in the end We had a rice byriani, saag chicken and garlic naan. All was prepared fresh and nicely spiced... More

This place is nothing more than average if that. It is more like a small cafe rather than a proper restaurant. There is not much of an atmosphere. There are only about 5 to 6 tables.There was only one middle aged waiter serving. The table cloth was stained and the crockery did not look particularly clean. The food was just... More
