I have visited this restaurant over a number of years, and whilst the quality of food is always good, have to say that over the past number of months the portions have got progressively smaller and in my opinion no longer offer value for money....More

Whether it's a takeaway or eat in the Tamarind never fails on food quility. We have a variety of dishes, normally mild to medium curries. Never too hot. Each dish is as good as the other. We always share & try other's dishes...Always good service....More
