Tamarind Kitchen comes to Soho with koftas, goshts and currys
The team behind the Michelin-starred Tamarind of Mayfair brings a new Indian dining concept to Soho.
A brand new dining concept from the award-winning Tamarind Collection has now opened its doors in Soho, bringing an enchanting Indian cuisine in a stunning setting.
The heartbeat of any Indian home is its kitchen; the place where family and friends come together to talk, eat and relax. Inspired by this idea, Tamarind Kitchen has brought a convivial Indian dining experience to the heart of buzzy Soho, complete with sumptuous dishes that reimagine the awardwinning cuisine of Tamarind Mayfair and tailor them to the Soho diner.
Tamarind Kitchen menus present a stunning array of fish, meat, game and vegetarian dishes — many of which arrive fresh from the kitchen’s authentic Tandoor oven. Tantalising tastebuds from the moment you sit down, starter dishes include Makai Kachumber, a vibrant corn and vegetable salad lifted by a chat masala dressing and Karara Kekda, soft shell crab with potato salad and homemade pickles. The flavour explosion continues with irresistible kababs, such as the Game Platter, which serves tandoor-cooked quail, duck and guinea fowl on a bed of vermicelli.
Mains appeal to all palates and include Guchchhee Kofta, morel mushroom and pea dumplings in a spiced creamy sauce; Hydrabadi Gosht, slow-cooked lamb in a browned onion sauce flavoured with Kashmiri chilli, as well as a traditional South Indian Alappuzha Fish Curry with Kingfish and spiced with tamarind, mustard and curry leaves.
All dishes are accompanied by a selection of Tamarind’s signature rice, breads and dips.
The 100-cover restaurant spans two floors, featuring a private dining room for up to twenty guests and a subterranean cocktail bar for late night drinking. Its interiors, designed by Russell Sage Studios, blend soulful touches (in keeping with the Indian kitchen concept) with the sophisticated — as befits the sister restaurant of the palatial Tamarind of Mayfair. And attention to detail has not been bypassed with the tabletop choices: each handpicked item reflects the modern diner’s appetite for simple, yet stylish elegance. Sourcing from four artisan producers – including Studio Mattes, a celebrated Belgium-based stoneware supplier – the plates have been carefully selected to show off the colours and curves of the forward-thinking Indian dishes
Set to be the destination of the spring, Tamarind Kitchen looks forward to welcoming diners to a rich and resplendent setting of quiet elegance to sample delicious, contemporary Indian dishes from the expertly crafted menus.
