Excellent food, service is a bit slow.
Great restaurant and good Indian cuisine
Excellent food and service. Staff is super nice and attentive and I enjoy greatly every time I go.
One of the best meals I've had in a long time, and reasonably priced considering the reputation (one of the best Indian restaurants in the city) and location
The dishes were accurately flavored and the wait staff were most helpful with selections of the menus that best compliment each other
Excellent food. Ambience is barely there, can be improved. Service was very good.
always very welcoming staff and great food.. been here many times
Great food for the price as well as very attentive service! This place is great for vegetarians as well
The food was SO good I wish I could go back right now! My colleague with whom I dined is an Indian expert. She travels to India often and she said our meal was one of the best she has ever had!
First time dining, we had the tasting menu and the food was amazing. The beetroot cuury was delicious. The service was very very good. We had a good time and will definitely recommend and would go back for sure.
We had an excellent meal at Amma's. I had the Chicken Xutaci which was just lovely and my friend had Lamb Dhansaag. Both were wonderful.. really tasty and generous portions. But my all time favorite is the Tandoori Grilled Vegetables as an appetizer. It was exceptional. The service is very good and my only nit is that it's very crowded with tables too close to one another. Nothing you can do about that in Manhattan.
The food is always exquisite and we try to go there whenever we are in New York. The service made all the difference. Our wonderful waiter Ricky helped us select various delicious little dishes to share and enjoy the complex and marvelous Indian cuisine.
Exceptional service and great food. Lovely ambiance, nice cozy feel in the main room. Highly recommend.
Great meal, attentive staff, knowledgeable, make a reservation because you will need it on the weekends, but they do not rush you at all.
This Indian restaurant had a number of non-typical selections, which was a welcome change from the standard "chicken korma" type fare. We had the lamb with apricot and fennel which was good, but TOO BIG. It was very rich and drowned in sauce. Would have preferred half as much at half the price. We had dessert at about 6:30pm on Saturday and already they were out of rasmali, which was disappointing since that's such a popular dessert. The service was attentive -- dare I say TOO attentive? (About 5 wait-staff asked us how each dish was.) The best dish was the appetizer: chicken achaari (with pickling spices). Very interesting and unusual flavor.
One of the best restaurants to sample Indian food. The kebabs, biriyani, fish, and chats are very tasty and appropriately spiced. The pricing is very reasonable. The lunch is a steal for the quality of food served. The seating area is quite small and fills up quickly.
Always enjoy dining at Amma when we're in New York!
I went with a lot of expectations , but the food was just average. Pea, spinach and fenugreek paranthas tasted of spinach only. Same for spinach samosas. Helpings were very small. Dal makhani also very average. 20% service charges were automatically included. Not good value for money.
Decent enough food. Tasty, spicy. Ran out of our requested vodka which seems inexcusable. Nothing special to inspire me to return.
This was the first time that I had dinner at Amma. I have had lunch there several times and loved the food and thought the prix fix meals were a very good value. My date loved her meal but, my chicken lacked ( I could not taste) the coconut sauce the meal promised. Also, the entrees do not come with rice or naan which makes the meal somewhat costly. The service and ambiance were outstanding. I will return for lunch only.
The flavors of the food are marvelous not overwhelming. Service was friendly and recommendations spit on.
Excellent meal and very attentive service. I spend a lot of time in India and grew up in England and even with those comparisons, it was excellent!
I took my sister, who is a connoisseur of Indian food, and it was my 17 year old son's first exposure to Indian food. We all loved every flavor! Everything was outstanding! I highly recommend Amma.
We had very good food and very prompt, friendly and helpful service. Other reviewers have noted very slow service. That was not our experience at all.
A perfect lunch! Amazing flavor, great service, incredible value!
Amma is a step above most Indian restaurants in NYC. The menu has the usual favorites and some dishes I had not seen elsewhere. We tried both. The usual dishes - such as chicken tikka masala - were among the most flavorful I'd had anywhere. We had more mixed feelings about some of the less common dishes - example: some loved the eggplant in peanut curry sauce, some not - but all agreed they were interesting to try. Service was good. Only downside is that this is a small restaurant that felt a bit cramped when full. I will go back again, but I wish I lived nearby for delivery.
Amma's offers authentic Indian food, modernly interpreted. We went for lunch two days in a row to repeat this great experience. The service people recommended excellent combinations of dishes from all over India. This place has become a landmark in my gastronomical agenda.
A pity South Indian dosas not available although on menu . Food was very good with excellent presentation. Dishes had chilli heat well below the levels in India but suitable for local palates - I lived on India for 17 years? Prices reasonable for the quality. I would love to have an AMMA in my local village in Ireland
Very long wait for main courses. Otherwise great meal.
I love this place! Sandeep and Ricky are the best -- heck, the entire team is wonderful! They are attentive to your needs, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about the menu. Did I mention the food is perfect in every way? It will always be my favorite Indian restaurant in Manhattan!
Love this restaurant. One of the best Indian in the city. I would recommend it to anyone who cares about good food and very warm service.
Delicious! Some of the dishes were typical (chicken masala tikka), and some were unusual, at least for me (e.g., there was some kind of potato dumpling filled with raisins). Service was excellent, the room was fairly quiet, and the prices reasonable.
Very limited selection especially for vegetarians.
I researched this restaurant before I travelled to N Y. I found it very expensive given the rate if euro to dollar. Wine list should have a house wine at a reasonable price. The wine I ordered was not available so the alternative recommended was more expensive than we bargained for. While it was a good meal, I think it was not value for money for us Europeans
Overall it was good. However, the wait staff were like flies on honey. They were all over us. No peace. No quiet. The host, Sandeep, was suffocating. The chicken dish my wife ordered was not listed as spicy. She found it unbearable. My dish was fabulous. The wine list was good.
Delicious Indian food! Despite the three waiters working in a relatively small restaurant, the service was weak (10 minutes to take a drink order; 10 minutes to prepare it). At the end of a wonderful meal where we were the second to last group of the evening , I asked for the bill, which I got after the wait staff finished setting up several tables for the following day and decided on taking a lot of time to prepare and present the bill.
The food was excellent, but it's definitely a place to go to when speed of service doesn't bother you.
Amma is simply the best Indian in NYC. We don't miss it when we are in the city. Sundeep takes great care of all of the guests. Great food. Great ambiance.
Very original and tasty food. Excellent service
This truly was an amazing dining experience. While we were not really familiar with Indian food our waiter was a valuable asset in guiding us through a great sampling of all of the different dishes- The waiter made our experience worth returning. We had five different appetizers and four different main dishes served family style. Next time we're back in New York this will be the place we come to for sure
