Unaware that it was an Indian restaurant, we came in from the street. Food was good and some kind of fusion between Indian and Western cuisine. Service was excellent and definitely would come back some other time. Prices decent.

From start to finish an amazing and delicious evening.
Loved the decor although maybe a little dark on entering, my eyes adjusted quickly.
Music was incredible and could have put some of the DJ's in town that I heard later that week to shame.
We chose the culinary journey and what a delightful, sumptuous experience it was.
Paired with wine, my girlfriend and I had a delicious, flavoursome and mouthwatering dinner. Would def recommend this restaurant.
Service was also exceptional. Thanks Tamba for a great evening! Can't wait to come back for more.

Everything we ate was more delicious than the last...great happy hour specials with unique cocktail and appetizer options. Best Indian-inspired cuisine I've had in years. Relaxing/romantic atmosphere with great service. Highly recommend - we almost went back a second night in our short stay in AD!

We visited Tamba with two other couples for their Friday Lazy Lunch which for 295aed was a table served brunch including alcohol package. They serve what appears to be the entire appetizer menu and each individual at the table selects a main course they would like as well. We really enjoyed this style of brunch as we could ask for any of the appetizers again if you really enjoyed them and you were not served your main course until everyone had completed going through the appetizer dishes. Everything was delicious and the presentation of the dishes was very good. The service was excellent and we never felt that we had to search a waiter / waitress out. In terms of the drink package, there was one draught beer, a red wine, a white wine and a selection of cocktails and bar-rail alcohol available. Everyone in our group was happy with what was available and there is something for everyone. The ambiance is lovely as the restaurant is absolutely beautiful inside and in good condition. The lazy lunch goes from 12-4pm and we stayed the whole time.
