Excellent appetizers and entrées... Not overly spicy and very well prepared! We had lamb, scallops, chicken, eggplant and lentils... And flatbread of course... All served family style. The bar is well-stocked and the staff and manager friendly and attentive. Some of the best Indian food I've had!

Tamarind of London in London is one of our favorite restaurants while in town. We were just there a month ago and one of our servers mentioned about Tamarind of London in Newport Beach. We had to give it a try since it's less than an hour away from us. We made reservation, but arrived earlier. The restaurant was mostly empty, and we had no problem being seated wherever we wanted. It's a beautiful place, very modern, with a classy décor. You can see the kitchen through a glassy panel while the chefs are busy at work. We were very well taken cared of, our servers were very attentive, and the food was delicious! Just the chicken tikka masala needed a bit more of spices, but everything else such as the okra and the potato appetizer were fabulous! The desserts were also great! I will definitely go back!

Asked for a slice of onion to go with my naan. Was told that there is no fresh onion in the restaurant. Really? Indian restaurant with no fresh onions? Perhaps everything there comes out of a can ?

My husband and I love Indian food, it is a treat that we do not indulge in very often and last night we tried Tamarind of London. I liked the idea that there is a huge window that allows you to see into the kitchen and watch some of the chefs because Indian restaurants are not know for their hygiene. The decor is dark and they have built booths all around the perimeter.
The food was excellent but does not have the wide selection that a normal Indian restaurant offers. A little pricy but worth it if you are out for a treat.
