Best kept secret!Amma is my favorite Indian restaurant in NYC. The dishes are perfectly balanced and flavorful. Every single thing I've tried on the menu has been tasty and interesting–infused rices (mint, lemon and tomato), mint paratha and the Paneer Kundan Kaaliya that is addictive!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest indian restaurant ever!Their menu is slightly pricey, but believe me that it is 100% worth every penny. The food is traditional, yet has a fresh new vibe to it at the same time. Impeccable ingredients made every bite one you wanted to savour for hours! The service was extraordinary, the waiters being extremely friendly and ready to assist you at any given moment. It was quaint and classy -- the perfect place for any occasion!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were so happy having aWe were so happy having a fabulous time with fantastic food, wonderful services and amazing atmosphere at Amma where is our most favourite place in Manhattan.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Indian in NYCOur friends from India agree that Amma has the best Indian food in NYC. Attractive decor, a peaceful environment with solicitous service complement the food. Try the Goan fish curry, any sea bass specialties, expertly prepared lamb dishes, crispy okra in yogurt, Peshawar naan, and fabulous cocktails. We have been here on multiple occasions and will return again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love this restaurant. ThiI always love this restaurant.

Highly recommend!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter asked if naan andOur waiter asked if naan and rice were okay. My guest and I both made the assumption that it came with our meal and thought it would be a disservice to mention no naan (as my guest does not eat bread and I wouldn't have ordered either). We pleasantly nodded and said we'll make due. Waiter said great and brought us our food.
Soon to find out on the check later: there was an extra charge for both. For the staff - PLEASE MENTION TO YOUR GUESTS OF THE EXTRA CHARGE AND DO NOT OFFER UNLESS YOU MAKE CLEAR THAT THERE WILL BE AN EXTRA CHARGE! We were both slightly turned aback when looking at the extra $8 added to our check and even mentioned. Waiter's response: "I have never been to an Indian restaurant that included it." No apologies.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was extremely goodThe food was extremely good traditional Indian. The service was friendly and efficient.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways very, very good!!

We had the tasting menu and since we both don't eat sea food they've replaced some of the dishes for us. The only downer was that it was very expensive. Their wine list is expensive. We paid 147 dollar plus tip for 2 tasting menues, 2 glasses of wine and 2 beers but we would go back for special occasions.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm and comfortable staff and spacDelicious Dahl mahkni and lamb rogan josh was well balanced.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful...Romantic, delicious food , never disappointing...can't wait to go back again!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Indian restaurant in NYCBeen to India several times and have had some great Indian food. Amma will rank among the top whether in India or NYC. The only negative is the tight space. Amma needs to find a bigger space or reduce the number of tables to give a little more space between tables. Best vindaloo !3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSophisticated Indian in NYCAbsolutely one of the finest Indian meals I've had anywhere in the states or the UK!

Highly recommended ,you won't be disappointed3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMReally yummy and unusual itemsReally yummy and unusual items on the menu - waiter took time to give a little background about all of it.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIs this the best Indian restaurantIs this the best Indian restaurant in New York? Some would say yes. It's certainly one of the top 2 in my book, and without question the best for traditional dishes. As my dining companion noted, you can absolutely taste in every bite the layers of flavors that could only be achieved by slowly blending the spices. We were wondering what time in the morning the chefs come in... The restaurant week menu was fabulous, with many choices. We loved the fish dishes, but the chicken could not have been better as well. And the 4 courses (unusual for restaurant week - almost everyplace else does 3) gave you a wonderful assortment of tastes. Bravo Amma, again.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMfit for maharajasjust back from a month in India and back at my favorite NYC Indian restaurant. Delicacy and authenticity of flavors is unrivalled, as is the unusually excellent wine list.1/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food. I'd go backAmazing food. I'd go back again and again. Once you try this place, you wouldn't want to go to any other. It's that good. Even the fish!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
