Excellent food and service. Everything is made fresh so food takes time. Loved the deserts specially the coconut brownie and the chocalate decadence which had a touch of sea salt.

Beautiful restaurant tucked away in the trees provides an excellent ambiance and food. We ordered take away twice and they delivered for us... it was north indian food which was delicious especially the nan. We also visited the cafe for brunch and were again not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We ended up visiting twice same place in 3 days. We are vegetarians, we loved their cake and Italian food (veg). Even their suggestions according to your taste is very good. A must visit near baga or anjuna beach. Even it's cosy, we didn't check rooms but that also looks good

During our stay in The Tamarind, every late evening we would spend time here with food and drinks and talk about our day. This place serves some great north Indian food. And the bakery is to die for with all its pastries and pies.

I went here three times in a short span ... the foods ok. Some of it decent ;-) ... but the service is terrible. On quiet nights, busy nights ... slow unreliable service. Nice location though, and nice music offerings.
