“once great swansea valley eaterie”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

I have been going to the tamarind since it opened it was by far the best indian in pontardawe ....notanymore , last month we went twice and had two rather bland meals , the food sadly has gone down hill and that is such a disapointment ,
The staff are excellent especially sammi but when we visited it there he was away and it lacked that friendly atmosphere , I couldnt wait to eat my rather bland chicken mickani and head for the door ,

“Absolutely Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Ordered a meal with my friend and we loved it! This was probably one of the Indian food I had in ages. The food was amazingly delicious and came on time, the meal was hot, quality of food I would say was really good. My order was being managed well. The staff were very friendly and helpful I didnt have any problems. :')

““Yummy scrummy indian food and fabulous service””
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

The Tamarind is the best Indian restaurant that you can find in ponterdawe. The food is beyond delicious, the portions are extremely generous and the service is friendly and professional. The staff are all excellent and I am very happy to eat there time and time again!

“Bad attitude by manager after DEAD FLY found in drink”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Most of the staff were friendly but the manager had a very bad attitude towards us.

The staff got the drinks order wrong three times.

Alcoholic drinks were served in hot glasses.

They served Malibu with a DEAD FLY in it. When complained to the manager, he was rude, not apologetic and very unsympathetic.

The food took over an hour to arrive.

They forgot the cheesy nan bread and when it was rushed out , it looked like a lump of cheese had been thrown on top in a rush.

The whole evening was shocking and will not be returning to this restaurant again.

Will be reporting restaurant for health and safety issues after finding a DEAD FLY in my drink.
