The Tamarind remains our 'go to' take away as the quality of food has remained consistently high over the years we've been coming here. The lamb dhansak is excellent and our sons enjoy the Maharaja Bhuna which we think is unique to this restaurant. Delivery times are predicted accurately for take aways which on a busy Friday night can be over an hour so get your order in now!

The restaurant is very clean, with a sparkly ceiling. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable reagrding the dishes. The waiters were very well presented. We had not booked a table, but they managed to fit us in.
The food was extremely good, we chose a lamb dhansak and a bombay beef.The dishes were ptresented well and contained quite large chunks of meat. The accompanyments were very good and especially a very meaty naan bread.
Eventhough the restaurant was very busy the waiting time was quite acceptable.
the price was reasonable for a meal for 2 and nice bottle of Chilean sauvignon blanc wine it came to a little over £43 pounds. I will definitely frequent the Tamarind again.

Our family have been using this restaurant for a while now and usually opt for a takeaway option.

Excellent standard of food which is always of high quality and taste. Far exceeding other Indian restaurants in the area. Not only on food but also on price.

Reasonable delivery time of an hour (Friday evening at 8pm) especially considering we ordered at peak time and delivered piping hot!

Complimentary sundries and bottle of soft drink to boot!

Many thanks once again Tamarind.

This was our second visit to this local, (for us ), restaurant.
My wife and I are not really in to Indian food per se, but we were knocked out by the huge menu and array of different styles of cooking available.
We scanned the list of food on offer, and with the help of our daughter, who is something of a regular at this venue, and the advice given alongside each item as to the spiciness of each offering we both chose the Malayan curry. As it turned out, an excellent choice for both of us.
The service was excellent, the food delicious and the atmosphere warm and friendly with no background music to spoil the conversation.
Overall, a pleasant evening in pleasant surroundings with good food and company.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Just tried to order offline and it wouldn’t allow me to because they “didn’t deliver to my address” however I previously ordered to my house. Once I rang to order my food they were incredibly rude and hung up half way through ordering our food order. They also overcharged us by £5 and are refusing to tell us where the extra £5 came from. Will not be ordering from here again. Extremely rude.
