This is small intimate restaurant with chic table settings and a wide array of Indian, Asian and European fusions. Decent wine list with per glass selections. The portions are quite generous and patrons often leave with a " doggie bag". Prices are not cheap and the advice of the servers are dependable. Sometimes the card machines have clitches whenever it... More

The food was really good and the portion sizes were generous. The waiters were very busy which made service very slow. Should consider hiring more waiters.

We love this restaurant in the Liguanea area Kingston just around the corner from Sovereign Plaza. We have never had bland food here. The vindaloo was superb and the garlic naan delicious. Portions are very generous. Service was attentive and we felt well looked after. We noticed a new practice though when we paid our bill. 10% is added already... More

Went to the restaurant for a lunch menu staff was on point. Very helpful and friendly, they have a buzzer system that is quite efficient when getting what you need. The food was delicious very cost effective. Great venue for business or pleasure. Parking can be a problem though during rush hour.

Tamarind is one of my favourites! The menu consists of a wide range of authentic Indian dishes and also has and Asian fusion menu, leaning to Thai. I appreciate the variations of "heat" in their dishes. The food is consistently excellent and served within a reasonable time. Lovely decor, always clean and very pleasant staff.

We ordered it at our hotel room, they did provide paper plates on request but the food was not up to expectations as the naan was chewy and the curries were bland tasting. Not real Indian food if you are looking for that.

Really good Indian cuisine with nice service. Every piece of food you put in your mouth provides a moment of real gastronomic pleasure. There is a significant Indian Colony in the Caribbean especially in the former British colonies, so you can find very good Indian food the region and Tamarind is definitely one of the best you can find.
