The Tamarind Tree, WokinghamBy Victoria Corbett
October 24, 2008
Some people said Wokingham did not need another curry house and the demand was simply not high enough.
But two years on, The Tamarind Tree in Peach Street is continuing to prove itself a popular contender in the town’s list of Indian dining destinations.
The Tamarind Tree aims to set itself apart from the rest by offering lighter Indian options for those wanting a guilt-free curry, as well as all the usual favourites.
The decoration inside the restaurant, which incidentally was home to The Wokingham Times only a few years ago before it moved to Denmark Street, is modern, with black leather seats, hardwood floors and colourful arrangements of twirly dry reeds.
The menu is extensive, with a long list of specials and curries.
The starters arrive delightfully arranged, creating a treat for the eye as well as the tastebuds.
The Tamarind Tree’s pickle tray is something rather special. Including a sweet tamarind option, spicy lime pickle and mango chutney, it is served in white bowls set on a round wooden board – perfect for dipping and sharing.
The restaurant is run by the delightful Koush, a friendly host who always has a smile on his face, and Jean Bettison, wife of Bracknell Forest Council leader Councillor Paul Bettison.
The Tamarind Tree proves very popular on Friday and Saturday nights,and also offers a Sunday buffet for those wanting something other than a roast dinner.
For £6.95 you get a selection of starters, side dishes and main courses – no wonder the restaurant is so busy on a Sunday.
