Squaremeal Review of Tamarind ?

Still glowing after all these years, Tamarind has both a Michelin star and gilt-pillared dining room, all the better to seduce tandoor fans looking for an upmarket London take on the cuisine of north-west India. The kitchen “never fails to deliver”, and you can taste the quality in starters of lamb cutlets with dried mint, tomato and coriander chutney or papdi chaat, sparky with blueberries and tamarind. After that, we suggest marinated monkfish kebabs served with pickled golden beets or Malabar prawns rich with sautéed onions, chilli, fenugreek seeds and coconut. On the side are gorgeous breads, slow-cooked dhals and unusual touches such as a chickpea dish with Assam tea, onions and whole spices. Pre/post-theatre menus offer decent value for a Michelin-starred restaurant and, perhaps more importantly, a fabulously fragrant romp around the kitchen’s simpler dishes. Staff “really go the extra mile” and it’s all done with an instinctive sense of occasion.

    The Real Critics Guide :: The Real Critics Guide Tamarind of Mayfair

    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.
