Rated as number 1 in NY on every web site, i first thought it must be like any typical american Indian food joint run by people who make everything but Indian food. Coming from Delhi the food capital of India too, i was very sceptical about the place before visiting it. But surprisingly all changed after my visit. We called from our hotel at 8:30 pm for a reservation for 4 and i with my wife and two college going kids were back to India for 2 hours. Food was amazing, service class and polished and decor a great balance between two cultures. Must for anyone from anywhere to experience India in USA.

When in NYC and looking for Indian food, look no further than Tamarind on 22nd street. With a very vibrant crowd, in a nice setting, and with the best Indian food in Manhattan, this is a restaurant that shouldn't be missed. We ate the chicken and lamb which were delicious but the best part of the meal was the lobster made with Indian sauces. The bar scene as well is a big draw. With all the great restaurants in the city, Tamarind is one you will not forget and it's also a place to revisit often.

We were there on a Friday afternoon about 1 PM for lunch.Wait staff was very courteous and always attentive. As one would expect, the lunch crowd was mostly business executives. We ordered executive meals. This had appetizer, entree and dessert as a combo. Portions were not big, but very tasty, well prepared and well presented. Ambiance is excellent. Overall, a very pleasant and memorable lunch in the heart of NYC.
Tips: Make reservations. You want to go here for leisurely lunch or dinner to enjoy the experience. Not a place to go to, if you are in a hurry.

Great food with excellent service. We had a group of 12. Wine list is not extensive but reasonable. Best lamb chops ever. Great attention to service.
