"Their use of fresh local ingredients and a modern touch on traditional dishes makes Tamarind unique. The service is excellent and the Patio is the place to sit for a very nice experience. I highly recommend it."

"Me and my wife like Indian food a lot. The BEST Indian restaurant we have to is TAMARIND at London. The only way to describe it is SPECTACULAR...you can notice it has 1 Michelin Star.
When we found out there was a sister restaurant at Newport, we didnt doubt to go. However, the story is very different.
The menu I found it to be pretty scarse. Not even a sampler combination or a fixed menu. The service is nothing great.
Had a tandoori "sampler" as starter. Very expensive, $30 for 2 shrimps, 2 pieces of chicken, 2 spinach cakes and 1 lamb kebab - taste, nothing to die for.
I ordered the Classic Lamb Curry; I got the the wrong dish: Beef with no curry.
My wife ordered the Scallops...they were good. The vegetable dumplings are very good.
To make it short, it was a $180 dinner, including tip, which I regret to have spent."

"This beautiful restaurant has wonderfully different and delicious Indian food. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on the patio. Carla was sweet & very good at explaining and making suggestions for us. The Sea Bass Tandoori, Date and Goat Cheese Naan, fresh made pistachio ice cream and chai tea were simply divine.
I would only suggest a little softer lighting outside ( light those lanterns!) and maybe a little more upbeat music by the gorgeous bar, almost too quiet.
Can't wait to return

"Tamarind is probably one of the best restaurants in Orange County. We have never been disappointed with the meals there and the location is beautiful. It is also a good choice for people who may want to try Indian food for the first time because the chefs will gladly customize your dish if you would like to make it less spicy or add less of a particular ingredient. Very relaxing and memorable."

"We have always enjoyed Indian food but were unable to find any restaurants in Orange County that we thought were very good until we found Tamarind of London. We had chicken curry, lamb curry and tandoori chicken. We also ordered rice and Naan, okra and some condiments. All were very good. The rice and side vegetable portions are large so you do not need more than one for two-to-three people. Although poppadums' are not listed on their menu, they are complimentary with drinks. The service was attentive. Their corkage fee is $25 which is a bit steep. However they do have a good list of affordable wines (around $45) wines that pair well with Indian Food. We will go back."

"I had the privilege of living in Australia for many years. Indian and Thai Food restaurants are a dime a dozen in Sydney as Mexican Restaurants are to SoCal. There are many great restaurants to choose from. I have been back living in CA for about 5 yrs and this is the best Indian I have had outside Australia. Whats great is it takes Indian dining and recipes to another level. You won't find your standards on the menu, but was told by the waiter you can still request them. Six of us dined sitting at a table looking straight into the kitchen. I personally love this! Its not everybody's ideal of a great seat. The decor overall was far less up market than what I was expecting. The more casual setting will probably have me return more often.
We had 6 main courses and 3 appetizers to share. This is the best food to have "family style" Everything was outstanding with the exception of one dish, the scallops. These were just bland, not bad, just bland. A perfect dish for those afraid of spice.
If you've never had Indian food (as a few of our guests had not) do yourself a favor a try it. Our most conservative eaters were blown away by the incredible flavors! Not everything is "spicy hot", most of the dishes have a wonderful warming sensation, but you can still taste all the different flavors. Divine!"

"Fabulous food in a gorgeously designed restaurant. Attentive staff who knew the menu and wine list inside out.
The food is the nicest I have found, for Indian food in Orange County.
I dropped a star for one reason, we asked for medium spiced food and it was a little more than that! .
It was manageable, but had it been medium spicy we would have polished off everything, as it was, we boxed the leftovers to bring home.
Lesson learned and when, not if, we go back, we know what to do!
