Tamarind Kitchen, Soho, London

Words by Tommaso Cassani

 

 

Tamarind Kitchen is an asian, specifically Indian fused restaurant on Wardour Street, Soho . Tamarind kitchen’s interiors offer you the illusion of get-away with it’s dark lit space and out of the way feel. The kitchen’s sister to Michelin stared Tamarind Mayfair and part of Tamarind Collection group providing true Indian styled dishes updated. 

Tamarind kitchen In the heart of soho is probably one the last great eatery’s offering great food and service without having to break the bank. For starter the Seared Scallops and Boti Kebabs is a great example of classic dishes with new updates.Grilled lamb is paired with crushed avocado while scallops are spiced and paired with parsnips. 
 
What we loved was Saag Paneer, simply spinach with garlic and cumin. The flavours felt traditional but what we did miss here was the elements of spice(we mean chilly). We found the traditional element of kick was lost in its paired down ingredients and yogurts but it really does still offer great taste. 

We advise that service can get a little slow during rush hours and dinner time so don’t get here too hungry, but the sommelier will advise the perfect wine pairing to make the wait a little easier. Grab some Vino and a basket of Plain, Butter, Garlic or Truffle Naan. 

To end we’d go for the Chocolate bomb “Chocolate mousse encased in a chocolate shell with strawberry shortcake and strawberry sorbet” the pairing is perfectly balanced and presentation is worth seeing. For a less sweet tooth ask for the selection of sorbets and ice creams on the menu for the night.
