First night in Leura and we found this unassuming Indian restaurant in a modern building just up from the railway station. The food was excellent, wonderfully flavoured and the serving sizes just right. Service was good. Overall top quality and the real deal for Indian food.

What a great place! We were expecting some good spicy Indian and this place delivered tenfold! The staff were absolutely lovely and accommodating to our byo needs, and they also made sure we ordered according to our needs. Will definitely come back the next time we are Leura way! One very small critique though...the lamb was a bit tough and... More

Great flavours. Great value. Great service. There were so many interesting dishes on the menu so we decided to order a banquet. Each dish looked interesting and tasted fabulous. Nothing too hot. Each dish was unique - 3 entrees and 4 mains. Fluffy rice, crisp poppadoms and yummy nan bread. Very good price. I'd go back anytime solo or as... More

Wow!!! This was amazing!!! I love Indian food and Tamarin Indian at Leura served me the BEST Indian I've eaten in a very long time (quite possibly the best Indian I've eaten in Australia).

One of the most expensive indian restaurants in the mountains, and the least spicy! If you like it as bland as Mcdonalds then this place will suit you well,

Just back from a weekend in the Blue Mountains, namely in Leura. This place, Tamarin is easily the most authentic Indian food I have tasted in Australia. Having not travelled to India but a serious fan of cooking these meals were text book with flavour and aromas to the max. We had butter chicken and a Rogan Josh which was... More

A family-friendly place and also lovely for a romantic dinner. Although there was only 1 waiter (it was a Monday night) he was attentive and efficient serving all 5 tables efficiently and with a lovely friendly manner. We ordered the Deluxe Banquet which really was great value for money. The 3 entrees were flavoursome, the mains (butter chicken, lamb rogan... More

Food was great very tasty and full of flavour. It was very good indian food. Atmosphere is non existent and the restaurant was cold. However getting to order a drink or food leaves you sitting and sitting and sitting. Looked under staffed but wasn't even that busy. Staff were very polite. Tasty food but plain dining experience.

Each visit to Leura for a mid-winter break includes a dinner at Tamarin. They remain consistently good and the staff are polite and attentive. We dined here on two different nights and each time had a different array of dishes. They were all excellent and unlike what we had experienced in other Indian restaurants making the meal a new adventure.
