We loved the food experience! Loved the view of the open kitchen for viewing. Tandoori chicken masala and the grilled shrimp were our favorites. Drinks and restaraunt design were modern which was somewhat unexpected. The restaraunt was busy on a Sunday evening and had a...More

Really have tried to like it given the London location but always found Tamarind Newport lacklustre and fairly average. Great location but doesn't ever seem to have any energy or real ambiance

But 2nd class service. I loved the brilliant food but was disappointed in the quality of service. Wine was egregiously over priced.

I expected a bustling Indian restaurant instead we were the only table along with another couple. The atmosphere was dull,service not too good although it was empty. Quality of food is good.

Met friends for a delightful weeknight meal; excellent Indian food, attractive decor, attentive service. A tad pricey for Indian but location, ambience, and service all top notch.

Great Indian food in a chilled ambience in Newport. Wish they were not so heavy handed with the spices and oil. Takes away from its classy credentials. The desserts were uniformly excellent and the only fusion food. The cocktails were very creative too.

Strawberry Mojito is fresh mint and limes muddled together, shaken with fresh strawberries, and topped with Sprite. It's a little on the sour side. Lightening up on the lime or incorporating more strawberries may balance it out. The mint is a nice touch. Rating: 4/5...More
