Tamarind Collection, which owns the Michelin-starred Tamarind restaurant in Mayfair, is open ‘Tamarind Collection’ in Soho. Spread over two floors, the 100-cover restaurant in Wardour Street, will feature a private dining room for up to 20 guests and an underground late-night cocktail bar.
The interiors will be designed by Russell Sage Studios and blend “soulful touches with the sophisticated”. Tamarind Kitchen will bring a “convivial Indian dining experience to the heart of buzzy Soho”, with “reimagined” dishes from Tamarind Mayfair. The menu will offer fish, meat, game and vegetarian dishes, with many cooked in an authentic tandoor oven. Starters will include a game platter (tandoor-cooked quail, duck and guinea fowl on a bed of vermicelli), while mains will include a traditional south Indian alappuzha fish curry with kingfish, spiced with tamarind, mustard and curry leaves.
Tamarind of Mayfair, which won its Michelin star in 1999, is set to be refurbished early next year, while the group also owns Zaika of Kensington, which holds two AA rosettes. Tamarind Collection also plans to launch a south Indian concept in Fitzrovia.
