    Had a great dinner with the girls for my 40th birthday on Saturday night (Chef's Taster menu at 50% off), but was a bit iratated when we had to vacate our table very soon after dinner to make room for the club set up! (the club was not very full that night and only played R n B music). They do serve the Chef's Menu dinner option quite promptly from 7pm, even if you are still waiting for guests. Beware, the location on Drury Lane is quite hard to find.

    Fabulous place.. I love the whole vibe around this place, delicious food and a very stylish decor. Recently launched new menu is such a great value for money at just £15. Been to a couple of club nights n they have been a lot of fun too !

    It was my 25th birthday and I booked the much talked about lotus lounge for a private get together with my close friends. We were 26 of us and everything at tamarai was beyond expectations. The music was jus amazing with the DJ playing my favourite music as per request.. the food was awesum and my friends were all praise about my party.The pan-asian food,cocktails and the elaborate wine-list, everything decided as per my wish , this was just the perfect personalised birthday party i could have and best part that it was all worth the price i payed. So im sure many more parties to come at this happening place. Definitely recommend tamarai to everyone.!!

    We had a party of 8 people and decided on the taster menu. What an excellent choice - the food was fantastic. All the staff were welcoming and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. As we dine out regulalry as a group Tamari will definately be on our list of venues to revisit again & again.
