One of few Michelin-rated Indian restaurants, the one-starred Tamarind is renowned for its upscale, Moghul-inspired cuisine and extensive international wine list. Housed in a Mayfair basement, the dining room is decorated with large gold columns, antiqued mirrors, and white-clothed tables topped with red roses. A silvered two-way mirror provides vague glimpses of the kitchen, where chef Alfred Prasad and his team craft Northwest Indian dishes using a traditional tandoor. Options might include lamb cutlets with ginger, turmeric, dried mint, and chili-yogurt dip, followed by chicken tikka in puréed tomatoes flavored with ginger, green chilies, and crushed fenugreek leaves.

Insider Tip:

After dinner, walk to the neighboring Cruzon Mayfair Cinema to catch an indie film in one of the city’s oldest art-house theatres, dating back to 1934.
