Tamarinds’ New Modern Indian Diner Concept
Tamarind Collection are launching a new Indian dining concept called Tamarind Kitchen, in Soho. The team behind 2 AA Rosette restaurant Zaika in Kensington and Michelin star Tamarind in Mayfair have designed a more diminutive dining approach with Tamarind Kitchen. The aim behind the venture was to bring wholesome, hearty, cuisine from India, and present it in a more relaxed setting, in contrast to the more palatial opulency of its partner Tamarind Mayfair.
Whilst trying not to re-invent the Michelin award winning cuisine of Tamarind Mayfair its’ taken the concept of the Tandoor and tailored it to the Soho diner. The authenticity of the Open Kitchen – the customary tradition in India where the kitchen is the lifeblood of the home, is how the concept came about. By creating a more authentic, traditional experience, the restaurant aims to deliver an altogether blended, soulful experience with a trendy diner look and feel to the restaurant.
The 100 cover restaurant is over 2 floors, with a private dining room for 20, with the interiors designed by Russell Sage Studios, where every minute detail down to the Belgium hand- picked plates have been customised to extend the simple, stylish feel.
Most of the dishes will come to the table straight from the Tandoor, flavoured with the lingering oak smoked taste. Assorted dishes of fish, meat , and tasty vegetarian options form the focus of the varied menu. Dishes such as the game platter – tandoor cooked duck,quail, guinea fowl on a bed of vermicelli, and the Hybradi Gosht -slow cooked lamb in a brown onion sauce, flavoured with Kashmiri chilli, and the traditional South Indian Alapuzzha fish curry, flavoured with tamarind, mustard, and curry leaves come accompanied with the signature Tamarind rice, breads and dips.
One of Spring’s most anticipated openings, Tamarind Kitchen is due to deliver contemporary Indian dishes from expertly crafted menus, in a stylish and welcoming setting.
