Square Meal Review of Tamarind ?

An Indian trailblazer back in the 1990s, Tamarind is still alive and kicking (and still holding onto that Michelin star), despite a few signs of ‘tiredness’ here and there. The basement dining room with its gleaming golden columns, bronze tones and impeccable table settings reflects the kitchen’s high-end ambitions, while chef Alfred Prasad’s cooking shows a master’s degree of fine-dining gloss and refinement that lifts the food way above the norm (despite some familiar curry-house names on the menu). Starters of aloo tikka and papdi chaat are packed with perky flavours, while mains bring glammed-up rogan josh, lobster masala or a selection of kebabs – including lamb chop and tiger prawns. To emphasise the aspirational tone, desserts such as halwa come with suggested dessert wine recommendations. Prices are unrepentantly tailored to rich Asian families and jet-setting executives.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Tamarind, Mayfair

    Tamarind is a Michelin starred Indian restaurant in Mayfair, right next door to Angela Hartnett’s Murano. After a recent disastrous lunch at Amaya in Knightsbridge (also an Indian with a star), we were hoping this would be much more of a success, and although our meal was far from perfect, it was ten times better. The basement dining room was a really elegant affair; fresh flowers everywhere and tables adorned with white tablecloths. We were seated next to a window looking into the kitchen which was a nice touch...
