Staff pleasant enough but bad food. Had a Sakora with frozen veg in in chunks eugh! I doubt the chicken was fresh either I know you can get per cooked frozen chicken pieces which they then add to a sauce. I reckon that's what happened here and it came to £16. Avoid it!

My husband and I went on Valentines day, and to our surprise the resturant was empty and the waiter said they had no bookings, so to be honest we wern't expecting anything good after that. A little later a large party came in, a take away was ordered and another couple so the atmosphere did pick up a little. The... More

We went to the Tamarind restaurant for a takeaway meal, using a voucher. The food was good and the service very friendly and prompt. Although we didn't eat in, the restaurant looked cozy and wel lappointed and probably would be a very pleasant night out.

We booked a table for four using our Groupon Voucher on Tuesday night for 7.30pm and arrived on time. We was shown to our table straight away. Menus were brought over immediately and we was asked if we would like to order popadoms and drinks which we did and received a few minutes later. At 8pm the waiter came over... More

We went along on a Wednesday evening with our Groupon voucher - we had a more limited choice as a result- starters were very mediocre but the mains were almost inedible- the quality of food was not good- the soft drinks we ordered were flat too. The only redeeming point was the ambience and music which we enjoyed- I'm glad... More

We went when this first changed owners - te menu is now cheaper but a lot more extensive. The choice is great. Food tasted delicious when it came and not just the bog standard options either. I'd def recommend eating here!

We visited this restaurant on a Groupon deal which was good value for money. The food was excellent and we had an allowance towards the starter, main and dessert. Staff were very efficient and the only downside is we didn't have a choice of dessert - it was an icecream dish but it was fine. We could have paid any... More

Admittedly a member of staff was off ill but only one person to take orders, staff the bar, serve meals and clear tables was not enough even on a very quiet Tuesday evening. Despite having a reservation we had to wait several minutes for a table to be cleared even though the place was almost empty, we weren't asked if... More

I came here with a groupon deal but after looking at the menu it's very reasonably priced anyway. I had the Tamarind kebab to start which was delicious, so flavoursome. And can recommend the tikka sag and karahi. The service was spot on and the food was really good. They also offer a take out service and a few cheap... More

Description
This restaurant has taken over from the Saffron Club. It is nowhere near as good and reviews for it are being added to the Saffron Club listing which seems unfair.
