Tamarind Bay Coastal is my favorite Indian restaurant in Boston as it brings to Boston a unique coastal cuisine which none of the other indian restaurants specialize in.The food is outstanding and the menu has some very exciting dishes like the Goan shrimp, manglorian lobster,maharashtrian pomfret which is a very popular fish delicacy from Bombay.If you are a seafood lover like I am then you must try this place as there is nothing like this in the city.

If you have not tried coastal food from India then you are definitely missing out on something.The restaurant has a wonderful ambience and great service.The owner is very attentive and offers great suggestions to go with your palate and taste.I would highly recommend you try this place.

Pros: Amazing food, Ambience and Service

I went there last Saturday after reading the Boston Herald Review. Great neighborhood gem. Specially loved the toned down decor compared to most Indian restaurants. Service was good and 3 of us ended up spending around $68. We had two glasses of Pinot Noir. My favorite dishes were Cabbage Chitwa, Crab Cakes, Whole Fish ( I don't remember the name), Daal and Mutki Murgh. Can't wait to go back again.

Pros: Location/Food/Drinks

Cons: New Restaurant - some kinks to resolve

When Tamarind Bay was opening a new location in Brookline, I was excited. The Harvard Square location is infamous for their authentic Indian food. So how does something this good, go so very wrong?

The service was lousy, the food portions small and the prices high. The quality of the food was okay, but not even close to Indian Quality at Kenmore Sq. I hope the restaurant reads these reviews and takes a different approach. Lower the prices, re-think the decor and either hire more staff or get better ones, because they all looked stressed.

As for prices my mango lassi was $4.50 while at India Quality it is $2.50, a small cup of soup was $4.95 compared at $2.50 and entrees were well in the high teens ($18-20), while other restaurants are in the low teens ($12-16) and serve larger portions. If the food was impeccable, I would not mind the higher prices; however this is not the case.
