No Hospitality, Rude Hostess
By nymagreview on 8/13/2011
I've been at their Flatiron location many times. Last Saturday Aug 6th around 6 pm, I wanted to try Tribeca location with my husband and son. Only 2-3 tables were full.The hostess approached with an attitude along with an unpleasent face and said we can not take the stroller. No problem. We parked it outside. She took us to our corner table and there was no high chair. She said they don't have high chair and suggested our child can hang out at the corner or sit on my lap????? 1) Great suggestion!!!! How come she was able to come up with this idea? Never experienced anything like this in anywhere and anytime while traveling, dining, etc 2) How come a 175 seats restaurant doesn't have a high chair while all other small high end restaurants have it. That means they don't care about people with children be their customer or not. I guess we should not even thinking about eating at their restaurant I will never go to Tamarind again. I hope they will work on their "hospitality"
Best indian restaurant in town

The food is really good, authentic indian restaurant. The service is very good also. There is a deal with $30 you got 2 entrees and a bottle of wine on Social Deal Map which make the restaurant so affordable also.

I arrived with my daughter, a student at NYU. Not knowing what was recommended here, I asked to speak with the owner, who came to our table and was quite gracious. I asked him to order our meal, which he did, and all courses were delicious. It is expensive, for an Indian restaurant, but the overall dining experience was excellent.

Poor food, little value
By IamI on 8/5/2007
I went hoping to have a great meal and found poor food served as though it were a gourmet treasure. People who know good Indian food can't be fooled by this place. Would never go back and would never recommend it.

Truly one of the better dining experiences in NYC. You walk in to a beautiful dining and right away you realize your in for something amazing. Crab soup is among the better dishes I have ever eaten. Chicken Tikka Masala & the Lobster Masala were both astounding. Service was on point! Definately would recommend to anyone!

The best Indian restaurant in the whole tri-state area. The restaurant and the kitchen is spotless, the staff is very helpful and attentive, and the food is amazing. Very creative presentation and very tasty, unique indian food. Highly recommended. And...it is not expensive at all for the quality.
Good Enough for Uma!!!
By ywwan on 12/3/2005
Tamarind is an all time favorite for special and memorable occasions - from farewells to birthdays. Mostly recently, we were delighted to find Uma dining there when we were celebrating a dear friend's birthday! As we savored the wonderful food, along with the rest of the room, we snuck discreet glances at the stunning presence who obligingly faced the room from one of the raised booths. And we fantasized about going up to her and voicing our support - "You show him, you amazing woman!!!" - but of course, like all New Yorkers we are way too cool to do that. Even ex-celebrity sightings, Tamarind consistently meets my high food standards. While the samosas are incredible, try the more unusual appetizers - like the flour patty filled with chickpees and tamarind sauce (Raj-Kachori). I love the well-seasoned and tender meats, whether its a tandoori or a curry. I particularly like the lamb vindaloo but have been told that the lamb shank is disappointing. Best of all there is a broad variety of delicious vegetarian entreesin addition to the vegetarian thali special (yummy). The bar is cool and as a regular, I have never had any service related complaints.
OVERRATED, OVERPRICED AND OVERCOOKED FOOD!
By JillyMacias on 7/3/2005
I rarely write reviews, but have just returned from Tamarind and felt compelled. I was so disappointed at the overcooked, overpriced food served. My husband and I felt screwed by the price of the meal compared with the quality. The service did not compensate for the food. We could not understand the waiter, and he was not attentive. The manager said he was appreciative of our feedback... but then went on to offer us more food to compensate!!! Please, as if the meal you served wasn't enough! He did at least make a point of visiting the kitchen and telling the chef. We won't be returning to Tamarind, and will not be recommending it to anyone. Avoid, unless you want to overpay for overcooked food!

I'm a huge fan of Indian cuisine and this place is really good. The service is excellent, and of course the food aint half steppin
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
