If you go to Tamarind expecting the usual Indian-restaurant experience, even a very good version of it, you might be disappointed, but the restaurant that Tamarind IS, is outstanding. The food is, you might say, "New Indian"--the traditions are manifest, but the riffs on them are contemporary. The service is gracious in a classic mode, and the setting is rather elegant. It's one of our favorite "special occasion" places.

You will love this dream come true Indian trendsetter. From beginning to the end, it was a perfect meal.

I don't know what the people dissing on this place ordered, but I had some great food here. And I've worked at a high quality Indian restaurant before, this place really gives them a run for their money. Prices are too high, but the food is really good, and there's quite a variety of unusual combinations. Perhaps the people saying "recylced 6th st. food" are just ordering the most bland and generic of dishes. Try something that sounds different, you'll most likely LOVE it!

Although pricey, this is an elegant but not stuffy restaurant that has very creative, yummy and interesting Indian food. I think even people who dislike Indian food should give this one a try, since it's so different - fusion, I guess, although that sounds too foofy. We came here with a $100 gift certificate and still blew through at least $100 more, somehow, and we are not usually big spenders - but it was worth it! A good option for when you have the dough to spend

Tamarind is my favourite Indian restaurant. I agree that it is a tad bit pricey but their food has that certain something which I don't agree you can get on 6th street, or Baluchi's even (although I do love Baluchi's!). They have the best Chicken Tikka Masala and make a mean Mango Martini. Their service has been lethargic each time I've been there but all the waiters are extremely courteous. And I love that it's a nice restaurant without attidude.

Overpriced mediocre Indian food. Save your money and go to Jackson Heights for the real deal.

Bad greeting, poor service set us off to a poor start. What followed was mediocre food and lukewarm temperature for most all dishes. The food was generic 6th Street food served in nicer surroundings. Why nothing unusual? A shame.
