This was our third visit , this year,to Tamarind on December 10, 2007. My opinion and ratings have not changed a bit from my first visit in March 2007,. posted under the Pevandi name. I always make my reservation well in advance and I am always promptly and couteously seated at the best available table, depending upon the size of my party. This time we also had the assorted dessert plate which was delicious and worth the price.

Our host was absolutely arrogant and rude when asked about getting us a table. After waiting for 20 mins, and asking again he just completely ignored us as if we wanted free food or something. I hope the management reads this. I must admit that this place does serve real good Indian food, however whether its worth the price is an important question. Then i argue and say its worth the atmosphere. However, what really put me off was the customer service of this restaurant.

My husband and I went there last Saturday, after reading great reviews, and it certainly didn't disappoint. The Samosa's were very tasty,not overly spiced and not greasy. The Lamb Vindaloo was nice but not fantastic, almost seeming a little watery. The Mixed Grill was fantastic. All the meats were delicious, fresh and moist, nothing dry or overdone. This is not a resturant for a romantic interlude, you sit very close to your neighbours. The service was excellant and the waiter helped us with our selection of wine when we couldn't decided between two, his choice was really lovely. We will be back for sure.

Hands down best Indian in NYC. Everything is always perfectly prepared. I highly recommend any lamb dish and all of the daily specidials have never disappointed. The room is not too loud to permit conversation and also lively enough to feel like a night out.

My girlfriend and I went here on a Saturday night in August. We had 9pm reservations and were seated upon arrival. The restaurant is beautifully decorated; but the 2 person tables are a bit close together (try to go with 4 people). We had 2 appetizers spicy potato cakes and spinach cheese cakes, which both came with some very tasty chutneys. Then she had the lamb stuffed with apricots and spinach (excellent! filling portion and extremely tasty sweet and spicy combo). I had the chicken korma in a cashew and saffron sauce. The lemon basmati rice and garlic naan were fantastic and the perfect complements to our meals. For dessert, we had the gulab jamun for a sweet treat. With one round of drinks, bill was 135 (inc tax/tip). The service was perfect - helpful, ubiquitous and professional. We highly recommend this restaurant and will be going back very soon!!

First time going there with a party of 5, we had a reservation for 9 PM....got there early, and they were ready for us as soon as we walked in the door. Outstanding greeting, and service, the waiters were excellent, always around but never an annoyance, they brought out every sauce so we could taste them all, and they kept the drinks coming not skipping a beat. We ordered three appitizers, smaller portions, but great for the appitizers because our dinners were loaded with food, bread and rice. Every time there was a crumb or a mess they'd clean off our table but never in the way of our dinner or conversation (ike some resturants end up doing), and the Halibut was to die for! Will go back, was a great experience!

We went as a group of 4. All the food was super particularly the cauliflower and the chicken dishes. Only the samosa was ordinary. We had a booth and the waiting staff could not be faulted. We were pretty rowdy and they handled it all very well for everyone. Would definately say this is one of the best indian restaurants in new york and will not dissappoint.
