Live music, fresh seafood and a view. Thats the tamarand dhow. Its an experience for sure and you get to watch the sunset form the antique boat while sipping on dawas. They even give you a key chain!

This was a wonderful experience- the food was splendid as was the service.
Very good experience, I would certainly go again when I visit Mombasa next. The weather was also good though the waters a bit choppy and hence we were unable to go all the way to Fort Jesus- however it was worth it all the same.

If you ever thought you have been on a cruise especially in Egypt multiply that by 10! Good place, I loved the sea food and everything on the Dhow. It crowned our Mombasa Vacation

On our last visit to Kenya we had a tour of Mombasa. We had a meal on the Tamarind Dhowe and I cannot believe how well we were treated. The staff were brilliant the food exceptional. I would recommend the Tamarin to everyone. I know I am late placing this review but work ethics sometimes hold me back. I am going to Kenya in August and will most certainly be going to the Tamarind for a meal.

What a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to get to go out on the dhow and eat lunch. Everyone agreed the the food was excellent. The seafood platter was the best they have tasted, and the steak was huge and delicious. There was live music and great service. We will go there again when we return to Mobasa.
