Tamarai (London, UK)

The website says says the it's pan asian dining, but its mostly Indian food just fyi (never a bad thing). It's a very cool place to hang out with friends and eat. I had their chef tasting menu, here is what they gave me:

coconut strawberry coriander shake - delicious! Really helped calm down the spiciness in my mouth.
Appetizers

Crisp lotus root with foie gras and a little bit of soy sauce - best version of foie gras so far (obv because the soy sauce)
Smoked salmon thayar satham (salmon sushi rolled in curry powder with rice and some cream in the middle) - meh
Hoisin duck spring roll with a pickles plum sauce - was okay
Sweet chilli lotus root - nice to snack on, a little spicy
Soft shell crab with flame roast coconut and masala mayo - winner!

Salad
Char grilled chicken with mango ginger on betel lead - The flavor is way too powerful.

Main Courses
Thai green curry with chicken, pea aubergine, young bamboo shoots - chicken was actually moist, great curry
Curry leaf king prawns with wild rice uppama - too much sauce

Desserts

Seasonal fruit satay - cantalope, some wierd white fruit with black seeds, pineapple, watermelon, and passion fruit sprinkled on top. refreshing.
Roasted sesame and white chocolate semi freddo - It looked like ice cream cake and was cold, but wasn't ice cream. I don't know how to explain this one, but it was really good.
