LONDON | Tamarind Kitchen in the heart of Soho is the latest offering by the Tamarind Collection, the group behind the Michelin-star-holding Tamarind of Mayfair and Zaika of Kensington. The restaurant’s menu has been designed by Chef Peter Joseph, who is also the head chef of Tamarind of Mayfair. Tamarind Kitchen carries on the tradition of delicious and innovative Indian food, but in a more casual setting than its brethren.

We were lucky enough to be able to get a table at the restaurant during its soft launch with a 50% discount off all food. As well as a comprehensive food menu, the restaurant offers an interesting selection of cocktails and mocktails with an Indian twist, such as the mango mirchi with fresh chillies, which we loved. The food menu is designed for sharing so we set about ordering a number of starters and mains, to get a good idea of the breadth of the menu.

For starters, we chose the Karara Kekda (crispy soft shell crab that was served with a yoghurt salad), the Jaipuri Murgh (strips of fried chicken served with a potato and cucumber salad) and the Nimbuwhala Jinga (king prawns served with a pepper chutney). Our favourite was the king prawns, which had not only been flavoured perfectly, but were also cooked to perfection in the tandoor oven.

For mains, we chose the Chicken Tikka Masala (served in a rich tomato and garlic sauce), the Alleppy Fish Curry (flavoured with tamarind, mustard and curry leaves), steamed rice and garlic naan. Do not be put off by the smallish serving dishes – there’s definitely enough food to fill you up. While we thoroughly enjoyed both curries, our favourite was the fish curry. The fish was so fresh and perfectly cooked that it melted in our mouths.

Of course, our visit would not be complete without trying one of the desserts. We ordered the Chocolate Bomb and the Mango and Pistachio Kulfi. We watched as chocolate sauce was poured over the chocolate mousse “exploding” the chocolate shell. Thankfully the flavours of the dessert matched the presentation, with a great balance of tangy and sweet.

Service was friendly and efficient, and more so than during most soft openings that we’ve been to. Overally, we really enjoyed our experience at Tamarind Kitchen and are looking forward to dining there again sometime.
