I try and go to Tamarind as often as I can. I think the food is great, and always has been. While it's not the traditional Indian restaurant, but how many "traditional Indian" places can you get fresh chilean sea bass with all those great spices?? It doesn't come cheap though, but well worth the splurge. And I second the sentiments about going to an Indian place when you're allergic to curry??? Besides, there is a major difference between Marsala and Masala (it wasn't a typo on the menu).

Haute Indian at its peak (at least for Manhattan). Food is always great. To the Gent with the complaint below... who goes to an Indian restaurant when allergic to curry? No need to give them a bad name for your mistake.

I had arranged corporate event in the private room, where I had 10 guests attend for dinner. I spoke with the head waiter prior to the guests arrival, where I ordered appetizers and bottled wine. I specifically said that I did not have money in my budget to pay for additional ALCOHOLIC beverages. This was the first error.... While placing our orders for our entrees, I told him I was allergic to Curry and ordered the Lobster Marsala (prepared with mushrooms, onions in a white wine sauce - I even confirmed that there was no curry/indian spices). Well, my dish arrived, and looked very tomato based with spices - not what I ordered, but the waiter confirmed that it was the "lobster marsala" dish. I had a few bites and knew right away that there was curry in the dish, as my throat started to swell up. Luckly, I had my medicine with me- which saved my throat from closing up. After almost needing to be rushed to the hospital, after specifically speaking with our waiter, I do not understand what the miscommunication was. Not to mention, upon receiving the check, there was a $100 charge for "additional alcoholic beverages" that had been ordered by my guests. I was floored, only because we had discussed the drink policy prior to the dinner. Apparantly their staff doesn't listen to any requests. ANY. I'm just glad I had my medicine.

Great place to take a date. The food was fantastic, the drinks were perfectly made, and the atmosphere was exceptional. You must try the Lotus Koftas, they are delicious! I will definately be back.

Really, it is. I can't speak to the restaurant's authenticity, but I have eaten here many times and consistently enjoyed it more than some of its counterparts (i.e. Devi, Tabla). My only complaint is with a lack variety in their specials. I have been there on three separate occasions, and the cauliflower appetizer was not on the menu and classified as a "special." Sounds more to me like a specialty. Nonetheless, the dish was wonderful. Service was also phenomenal.

In the past we have liked this restaurant but my last experience was less than satisfactory. The sauces were lovely and delicate but, unfortunately, the meats were uniformly overcooked. My major issue was with the service. We were seated for over 20 minutes before a drink order was taken and we were given menus. We were only informed of one special appetizer, but were not told about any of the entree specials. It was not until well into the meal when we overheard another couple praising the specials when we realized that our server hadn't bothered to mention them. After the meal was presented, our waiter never returned to ask if anything else was required. In short, decent food + lousy service = not going back anytime soon.
