This was our third visit to Tamarind but the first to its new location. We loved the charm of the old location. The seating was intimate and the naan oven was a prominent fixture. Not anymore. Lots of hard surfaces and shine. The two levels reminded me of a department store. Our meal was average. The wait staff seemed pushy as if they needed to sell food to pay the rent. At one point we ordered plain rice with our meal. I distinctly remember the waiter saying I will order you the rice. What he brought was the upgraded $19 a bowl rice. My lamb curry was good but not wonderful. The big hunks of meat were covered with brown sauce. I immediately wished I had ordered the goat. My husband's chicken was too big for one person. Had we been thinking and guided properly by the wait staff, our table of 4 should have shared 2 or 3 dishes. Instead, we fell for the sales pitch. Should I mention the pitch for dessert, which we declined? It was a classic sales pitch, " even if it was free you wouldn't want dessert?". I yearn for the old Tamarind with its charm.
