I had the pleasure to have dinner at the Tamarind Restaurant on my recent visit to Mombasa and it was a superlative experience. The location is amazing, with the sea breeze adding some cooling to a warm tropical night and the lights across the bay twinkling and reflecting off the sea. The mood is relaxing and magical, and the food matches this. Excellent seafood, both fresh and well prepared and attentive waiters make this a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

I have brought quite a few friends here and everyone has been blown away with the intensity of the flavours, let alone the ambience. My daughter is now a Chef and my dream is to bring her to Mombasa to savour the Tamarind Mombasa's cuisine.

If you want to enjoy quality seafood then this is the place to go to. Never a disappointment. Good service, delicious food, perfect location and casino to go to after dinner! A little pricey but definitely worth the value.
