If you like authentic South Indian food, you got to check out Tamarind. Well, I have not been there personally but a friend had really nice stories to tell.
They have an open kitchen and this friend who really loves Appam was thrilled to see them prepare an Appam right in front of him.
It’s easily approachable being on the main Sarat Bose Road past Hotel Hamilton when coming from Minto Park. They hold various speciality festivals like Hyderabad festival and coastal Kerala selections. These are great times for people from those areas or those who want to explore them, to come to Tamarind. The place gets lively with authentic posters of local films and is decorated with items that symbolise those areas.
