“One of the best in Mombasa”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a couple of nights in Dec. last year,
the staff is great and will help you in any circumstance, delicious food especially breakfast
with a gorgeous view. The only thing is; sometimes noisy in the night during weekends
otherwise, this is one of the best places to recommend in Mombasa.

“Great seafood, wonderful setting and service”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

The Tamarind came highly recommended so I was happy to drop in on the way from Mombasa Airport to Diani Beach with my girlfriend and some good friends. We had actually mis-timed it and arrived when the kitchen had just closed. No problem, kitchen was quickly re-opened and a feast of seafood and several cocktails were prepared for us - try getting that level of service in the UK..........
The food was wonderful, the setting and views very pleasant, the drinks cold and not so expensive - all in all a very good way to start a trip the Indian Ocean beaches south of Mombasa.

“Good yes but not as before”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We used to dine in Tamarind any time in Mombasa since we consider it one of the best restaurant in this town but this time we had to revise our opinion, the beautiful view of the old town and the usual welcome “ dawa” was all we appreciated, food was good but nothing to dye for while service and the house were looking somehow “tired”, all together not value for money at all.
Tamarind, c’mon try to get a bit of vibe and give a bit of “personality” to the dishes.
