About Tamarai

Tamarai restaurant in Covent Garden serves food from the 'lotus trail' which runs from Chettinad to Burma, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. And with specialists in each cuisine manning the kitchen, you know you're getting the real pan-Asian McCoy. Mix and match your way across the continent, with a Thai starter of sweet chilli lotus root with chives and fresh coriander followed by curried sea bass with spicy mee krob from Malaysia or curry leaf king prawns with wild rice uppama from Chettinad. Finish with mango rawa kesari and coconut jaggery ice cream in a sesame tuille. Tamarai was awarded Best Wine List in London by the Independent.
