I would recommend the Chicken Tikka, the Butter Chicken and the Chicken Maharaja. Full of flavour, creamy, just the right amount of spice, chicken was succulent and the portions were generous. You won't be disappointed. My friends also had the garlic naan and enjoyed it immensely. Wait time was not long, staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. It is a... More

I wasn't a big fan of Indian Cuisine and then I ate at Tamarind. Now , it's my go to place for Indian Cuisine. I love the ambiance as it's nice for a group or for a couple. Serving portions are good as I always have food left over and the taste is balanced and doesn't overpower your taste buds... More

This is small intimate restaurant with chic table settings and a wide array of Indian, Asian and European fusions. Decent wine list with per glass selections. The portions are quite generous and patrons often leave with a " doggie bag". Prices are not cheap and the advice of the servers are dependable. Sometimes the card machines have clitches whenever it... More

The food was really good and the portion sizes were generous. The waiters were very busy which made service very slow. Should consider hiring more waiters.

We love this restaurant in the Liguanea area Kingston just around the corner from Sovereign Plaza. We have never had bland food here. The vindaloo was superb and the garlic naan delicious. Portions are very generous. Service was attentive and we felt well looked after. We noticed a new practice though when we paid our bill. 10% is added already... More

Went to the restaurant for a lunch menu staff was on point. Very helpful and friendly, they have a buzzer system that is quite efficient when getting what you need. The food was delicious very cost effective. Great venue for business or pleasure. Parking can be a problem though during rush hour.

Tamarind is one of my favourites! The menu consists of a wide range of authentic Indian dishes and also has and Asian fusion menu, leaning to Thai. I appreciate the variations of "heat" in their dishes. The food is consistently excellent and served within a reasonable time. Lovely decor, always clean and very pleasant staff.

We ordered it at our hotel room, they did provide paper plates on request but the food was not up to expectations as the naan was chewy and the curries were bland tasting. Not real Indian food if you are looking for that.
