I just visited the Tamarind for the first time in a while. I've been very ill and unable to go there for over a year. The care and attention I received last night could not have been better. Add to that excellent food, as always, and I have to give them 5 stars.

I've been to Tamarind quite a few times. It's always busy so advisable to book in advanced. The food itself is very nice. Decent portions. It's a little pricier than some other local eateries, but no real complaints. The one thing that lets it down is that the staff always seem eager to get you out the door and free... More

Have always gone back to Wales for our curries (15yrs) but finally tried a Bristol one again. It was great. Good portion size, great taste & choice. Very busy at times. Definitely would recommend.

Lovely meal with good size portions. Very popular so suggest you book in advance. Very busy with Christmas parties so longer to wait but worth it.

I eat Indian food regularly and am lucky to have what must be one, if not, the, best Indian restaurant in Bristol. Recently, having been patrons of the Tamarind for some years, we decided to do an Indian restaurant tour of Bristol taking in numerous alternative establishments for a change of scenery, however we were always disappointed as the quality...

Pre booked as can get very busy. Arrived for meal, table was ready but by the door so every time the door opened it was very cold. Ordered our meals which arrived quickly. Food very nice but average. I had a dirty fork so had to ask for that to be changed. Felt very much as though we were being... More
