The Tamarind Collection has closed its Imli Street restaurant in Soho and will reopen it as a more relaxed version of its Mayfair restaurant later this spring.

Tamarind Kitchen will serve a more informal version of the menu from the group’s Michelin-starred restaurant Tamarind of Mayfair.

Traditional Moghul cuisine will take centre-stage alongside a choice of fish, meat and game cooked in an authentic tandoor oven.

Dishes will include slow-cooked lamb in an onion sauce flavoured with Kashmiri chilli; morel mushroom and pea dumplings in a spiced sauce; and a traditional fish curry with kingfish spiced with tamarind, mustard and curry leaves.

The 100-cover site, on Wardour Street, will be spread across two floors and feature a private dining room for 20 guests and a subterranean cocktail bar.

The Tamarind Collection also owns north Indian restaurant Zaika of Kensington and plans to launch an as-yet unnamed restaurant that will focus on south Indian cuisine.

Tamarind of Mayfair won a Michelin star in 2001, which it has retained for sixteen years.
