Have ordered takeaway from Tamarind several times in the last few months and the food has been excellent. However, ordered the same food as usual last night and I was very disappointed.
The onion bhaji starter was not cooked through, was raw in the middle and inedible. The king prawn bhuna and king prawn rogan were swimming in grease and the quality of the prawns was not up to the usual standard. The special rice was overcooked and the poppadoms were in about fifty pieces. I don't know if the ownership has changed or they have a new chef, but I think that the overall experience needs looking at. Won't be ordering from here again.

Noticed this place as we walked into town from rail station.
Place was quiet (Saturday evening 8pm, and most diners had gone early as there was a show on in the nearby theatre).
Made very welcome, provided with a nice looking table, and drinks and food menu.
Drinks-good variety and well priced.
Menu-plenty of choice and again, good value.
Food arrived quickly and after starters we were asked if we needed a "breather" (we certainly did!).
Food was hot and tasty, and was one of the nicest Indian meals we have had.
Owner was friendly and chatty, but unobtrusive.
Highly recommnded!

I have ordered from tamarind on more than one occassion and more than one occasion there has been hair some where in amongst it all however ... this time the starter was dry (mixed kebab) no where near as good as it usually is. The garlic rice although having seven cloves of garlic in it which were whole tasted of the reminents of previous burnt rice in the pan it had been fried in. The chicken tikka massala was extremely dissappointing. Appeared curdled on the top when we first opened it and there was six pieces of the driest chicken ive ever had. Overall extremely disappointed although a full refund was given without excuses.
