Tamarind Restaurant Review

: Tamarind is a sophisticated restaurant with a flair suited to its Mayfair location: tables are large and well-spaced, seating is comfortable and tableware is elegant. Shades of gold mirror the polished wooden floors. The cooking of chef Alfred Prasad is classical Indian without resorting to disorientated “fusion” or other trends, while still bringing traditional selections up to date. Spicing is subtle and even dishes marked on the menu with a flame symbol are not too hot, although an enticing chilli bite may lurk under the clear tastes of main ingredients. Grilled scallops come flavored with peppercorns, fennel and star anise beneath roasted peppers and with smoked tomato chutney. Kebabs are succulent; mains might include chicken tikka with ginger, chillies and crushed fenugreek leaves. Vegetarians and vegans are well looked after with dishes that tempt the carnivore as well. Wines surf the world, offering quite an array. Prices are very good, particularly for the heart of Mayfair and such quality. Set 2-course lunch £19.50, 3 courses £22.50; Tasting menu £29; pre- and post-theatre dinner £28.50.
