    Tamarind never disappoints. Their grilled red snapper with swahili sauce, mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables was pure bliss. The ndogo ndogo was definitely delicious especially with the sauce and the steak was very tender. Take me back!

    Excellent seafood, nice ambiance, and very good service. My wife and I would go here any time we're in Mombasa. The fresh oysters are especially delicious, and we could easily just fill up on them, though then we would miss out on the other, equally wonderful seafood dishes on offer.

    The food is superb and the service is good too. Love going there.

    As usual the food and service at the Tamarind Mombasa was of a high standard. I was most upset that the Management at the Tamarind decided to place our table for 9 right in the middle of the Smoking Dining Zone! It was most unpleasant as NOT ONE of us was a smoker! The fumes from cigarettes almost made my wife sick! Surely when one makes a booking and does not ask for a Smoking Table then the guests should be seated in the Non Smoking Area. It was especially upsetting as the booking was made through Eat Out weeks ago and the Restaurant had ample time to allocate us a nice NonSmoking table!

    I was eating the crab cakes when I bit into a piece of shell. Not a pleasant experience, it kind of ruined my meal.
