Tamba Indian Grill and Bar

At Tamba you will have the ultimate experience in Indian cuisine. Our menu features authentic specialties from cities throughout India and Southwest Asia, like the fiery Vindaloo dishes of Goa and almond-flavored delights from the Kashmiri mountain valleys.
Tamba's legendary chef is Daljeet Malik, New Delhi Native, wanted to open an authentic Indian restaurant that encompassed the foods she had from her travels with husband Sikender Lal Malik from Kashmir to the dhabas of Punjab and the northern mughlai cooking she received from culinary school in India.
Kebabs are the specialty of the house and they’re anything but typical. The signature dish is Gulauti Kebab and the Infamous butter chicken.

"Typical Indian food place with good food and clean restaurant.
If waiter can give faster service would be nice and portions were bit smaller than other Indian restaurant that I have been in NYC."

"A group of friends from out of town asked me to pick an Indian restaurant for a Friday (and last) night of NYC Restaurant Week. The reviews of Tamba were enticing, and the menu online looked great. It was also within walking distance of their hotel, just up Lexington Avenue. From the moment of our arrival, we were treated very kindly, and the food was spectacular. Among the top Indian dining experiences of my life. Thank you, Tamba!"

"I've lived in the Curry Hill area for a few years now and have never tried Tamba! I'm so mad that I didn't find this place earlier! Staff was friendly and totally accommodated our large table of 8. Food was so yummy! Best Indian in the neighborhood! Can't wait to go back!"
