Tamarind Bay group of restaurants strives to present true Indian cooking to its clientele. Started in 2004, our objective was to introduce the people of Boston to authentic Indian food. And in opening Tamarind Bay ac Indian Bistro & Bar, we believe we succeeded when we got highest rating in food category from Zagat in the US for any Indian restaurant and locally Boston Phoenix said acoeFinally, Boston has Indian food to rival Londonac2sac. India is a mix of many cultures, religions, foods and people. In 2008, we opened Tamarind Bay ac Coastal Indian Kitchen in Brookline, a fine dining seafood restaurant, showcasing the fish, cocktails and foods from the coasts of India. Tamarind Bay combines the knowledge, ambition and traditions of the owners BS Ajai Kumar and Vikas Kapoor and introduces guests to variation of Indian cuisine in a sophisticated yet intimate setting.
Several times a year, at least, we all go back. Began taking the kids at a very early age and two are at the far end of '30 something' and one middle '20 something'. Great mole-plobamo (guess you can tell I am not spanish/mexican because I think I spelled it wrong)
This is not the first time I have been to Tamarind Bay, but this is the first time I tried their lunch buffet. It was terrible compared to any other Indian buffets I've had in the area. The variety of the food was limited (although it did have a curry dish, nan, vegetable, Indian fried chicken, potatoes). In addition, the chicken in the curry was really hard and the sauce was so salty that even when I tried to eat with with nan and rice, it was unacceptable. The vegetable curry tasted like it was chopped vegetable in water. The nan was stale and bland with no garlic/butter flavoring, unlike the other nans that I've had in the area (ex. Cafe India, Tanjore). What dissapointed me most was that the Indian fried chicken was burnt, cold and again, super super SUPER salty. The sauce was a plum flavor that tasted extremely unnatural. Generally, I am not a picky person about food, and I eat Indian food at least once a week, so I thought I would try out Tamarind Bay as friends informed me that their dinner was not bad. For all those who want good Indian buffets, you should definitely pick another restaurant in the area. After this terrible experience, I tried to give some feedback to the waiters, and they had a pretty bad attitude. I will definitely not go back to this place again. Tamarind Bay made me wish restaurants offer refunds.
This restaurant has the best=authentic tasting mexican food I've ever eaten. I never missed an opportunity to eat here when in Boston. Having lived in Colorado + now Las Vegas, NV. I still haven't found a comparable restaurant with such reasonable pricing. fav dish...camarones ala campenchana
This small beautiful restaurant, tucked into a lower level on an obscure side street, is surpisingly wonderful. Casa Mexico serves the best mexican food that a native Californian and Arizonan could find in Boston. The food is great, the prices are reasonable, and the setting is unpretentious and elegant. It is our restaurant of choice for important family celebrations, like weddings, graduations, and reunions. But the Casa is also affordable--one could go there on a whim without feeling guilty.
