Famously the first UK Indian restaurant to win a Michelin star, Tamarind is used to setting standards and continues to uphold them – even though longstanding executive chef Alfred Prasad has departed. Gold pillars and statement floristry help to create some Mayfair gloss, and a sense of occasion is still valued here. Readers say the tasting menu is "full of good things", including grilled scallop with smoked peppers and tomato chutney, a clever tamarind and date sorbet, and a dish of lamb chops with raw papaya, fennel, star anise, spiced spinach and dhal makhani that "shows off the full range of flavours". The carte focuses on the cooking of northern India, with the odd seldom-seen treat such as vegetable kofta with onions, melon seeds and yoghurt. Pre- and post-theatre deals offer simpler dishes, although you still get to revel in Tamarind's "authentic pleasures" and golden glam.
Tamarind of Mayfair is a highly acclaimed Indian restaurant located in the heart of London. Being the first Indian restaurant to ever receive a coveted Michelin Star, this restaurant promises something special. There are currently only six Michelin starred Indian restaurants, so Tamarind is one of only a small number. With Indian being my favourite cuisine, I was very excited to visit Tamarind; and fortunately for me, they did not disappoint.
