Tamarind Mayfair to reopen in December after eight-month revamp

Related tags: Chefs, Restaurant

Tamarind in Mayfair is to reopen on 3 December following an eight-month redesign.

The site, which became the first Indian restaurant in the UK to win a Michelin star in 2001, temporarily shut its doors earlier this year.

Tamarind has since undergone a major revamp, which has doubled its capacity to 152 covers.

It will relaunch next month with a ‘fresh new concept’​ ​under executive head chefs Karunesh Khanna and Manav Tuli.

Khanna was head chef at London’s Michelin-starred Amaya for 13 years, while Tuli lead the kitchen at Chutney Mary in St James’.

The pair say their menu will offer lighter dishes cooked in a new open kitchen, including pistachio-crusted grilled lamb chops; and butternut squash kayle seekh.

Tamarind's long-time executive chef Peter Joseph​ left the business earlier this year to open his first solo restaurant, Kahani, in Chelsea.

Tamarind Mayfair restaurant lost its Michelin star in the 2019 edition​ of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland, though this was due to its brief closure.
