A beautifully decorated and elegant Indian Restaurant, that clearly takes pride in its quality of food and its service delivery. The menu is rich in variety, creating amazing combinations of Indian spices, to create scrumptious dishes that will wake up any refined palette.

First day of the new seasonal lunch menu. Guinea fowl and lamb osso bucco were superb. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, taking a genuine interest in our opinion of the meal. Very good value for money.

The food was exceptional, we decided to opt for the sample dishes rather than the full courses. Great decision !! Table service was fantastic and you felt really well educated on exactly what you were eating. Definitely will be back again. Cheers

Four of us splurged on the tasting menu with wine parings at this Mayfair gem. From the reservation making through the final coat collection on the way out everything was perfect .... worth every pound spent.

Truly exceptional overall. A bit noisy if you desire an intimate evening or intense business conversation.

We had a brilliant meal here. The dishes were subtle and thoughtful with just enough spice to make them interesting. Definitely worth another visit to try the rest of the menu.

I was here with my daughter and we both love Indian food. I can say Tamarind served among the best Indian food I have ever tasted. And the service and the atmosphere was high-quality. It is an expensive place but when you are in to eating top-class indian then it is the place to go

We came for a late lunch after a graduation ceremony. We ordered from the lunch set menu. There were plenty of vegetarian choices and everything we tried was delicious. Service was very good and we enjoyed the experience immensely. Prices were so reasonable that we wouldn't wait for a special occasion before we return!

Description
Michelin-starred Tamarind presents an elegant take on Indian cuisine from its gilded dining room in chic Mayfair. The inventive menu is rooted in traditional Moghul cooking, with fish, meat and game dishes brought forth from the Tandoor oven in an authentic north-west Indian fashion. Muted tones and attentive service make the restaurant a smart yet convivial destination.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
