Overall a great meal. Food is good, prices are reasonable, staff are friendly and helpful. Service was a bit slow as they were very busy - possibly understaffed for the number of customers. We have been there before, and will go back as the food is great.

We arrived at a new to us restaurant.
It was a chilly night outside. Walking in to a warm, happy family environment, with many tables celebrating special events and every part if it enveloped in delicious curry and freshly prepared foods scent helped me to KNOW Tamarind East is special.
We were not disappointed!
Fast courteous service with food freshly prepared for us, and fabulous recommendations from our server.
Generous portions allowed us to each have a second experience of delightful food in take out containers.

Well portioned dishes. Butter chicken was so good (tasted homey), and it was very reasonably priced. Will definitely be back
Service was very friendly, although they seem understaffed, all servers worked really hard but the line up for pickups (skip the dishes, etc) was really long and drivers seemed very frustrated by the wait

Disappointing.... read all reviews (mostly good) yet the reality was far from the expectation. The pakora and samosas OK. The biryani bad, the chicken tikka masala was basically a tomato sauce, no spiciness.....

Great find in NW Calgary. The food was very good, the service was great, and the restaurant itself has a modern feeling to it. I would definitely go back to this place again.

We can’t say enough about Tamarind, their food and their staff. This is our favourite restaurant that always surpasses themselves and accommodates the vegan in our family (especially when it is difficult to accommodate everyone’s specific needs these days)!

We were expected to pour our own wine when ordering two full bottles. Not a big deal but the guests at the table were disappointed. Appetizers were awesome. Lamb and beef were on the tough side. Chicken was excellent. Will definitely return.

First visit in the new year and everything is as great as it has always been. We were seated promptly and as always - has been treated very well by our attentive and friendly wait staff - Flora. 😊

We ordered our usual - Appies for two, chai for me, mango lassi for hubby and his butter chicken and garlic naan. We shared a coconut rice and ordered a GF from the menu - Beef Roganjosh.

Tamarind remains a consistent favorite for us. Thank you for cooking delicious food and outstanding service every time!

Food was outstanding. Best butter chicken and saag I have ever had. Service could have been a lot better but it was Christmas Eve so we didn’t complain and won’t let it put us off for next time. Gluten free options are marked out clearly. We will definitely be back.

When we received our vegetable pakoras they were cold. Our server never came back to the table too see how everything was otherwise we would have sent them back. When our server did arrive we told her about the cold food. The rest of the meal was very good. When she gave us our bill she apologized for the appetizer and took it off our bill.
