Had a great night with friends, really enjoyed the variety of dishes on offer. We sampled a number and they were all great. The service was particularly attentive(without being intrusive), informative and very welcoming. If you are in Blenheim and are looking for good food...and a relaxed evening, head to Tamarind.More

The first thing you notice when entering is the amazing aroma - mouth watering! Wonderful menu choices & great food. The service is exceptional. Would recommend the Dry Calamari (not dry at all) & Beef Mappas - but everything was gorgeous. It was so good...we went there two nights running!More

We travel to Blenheim about once a year for a couple of days for an annual event and always look forward to our visit to The Tamarind. It's a real gem - great food and friendly, helpful service. Love it. One of the best Indian...restaurants around with a pride in, and understanding of, the food they produce. They are passionate about the various dishes they are serving rather than just churning out the same base sauce on as many dishes as possible as so many other places do. Try something different each time you go!More

Try the dhosa, a crispy pancake ive never had anywhere else. I've also had about 5 different dishes, all of which were excellent. Lovely, friendly staff.

This restaurant was recommended to us for a small business dinner. This was Indian food very different to what I am used to ordering, was delicious with good portion sizes and I really hope to be back in Blenheim to sample more dishes. Customer service...was pleasant, helpful but not over doing it. They take pride in their food and for good reasons.More

Second time in two weeks! Enjoy the great lunchtime menu and plenty of time to chat. Price and portion size perfect for lunch and extra hot sauce a perfect touch for those who like heat. Different daily rice is a special touch. We will be...regular customers😁More

Food was amazing, customer service you couldnt get better. We ordered chicken, pork and eggplant curry, all were spectacular. Their home made chilli sauce is great with good heat, add as much as you want to your curry for a spicy curry that packs a...punch. Also very tasty. Their Vegetable Cauliflower and brocoli bhuji is the best ive had. Great indian restaurant would highly recommend.More
