Amber India - Mountain View Ratings and Reviews
I will never go to Amber India again for a special occasion. They looked to be staffed well but service was slow. Also, the room was cold, crowded, noisy, and definitely not the experience we were looking for for Valentine’s Day. The food was mediocre too. When our food came, we hardly ate since we were full after waiting so long and picking at our appetizers. And our food got cold quickly. Very disappointed.
Amber is a cut above the average north Indian restaurant. The service, the menu, the creative/traditional flavors. I don't know what they're doing in the kitchen, but everything just tastes better at Amber. The spinach paneer is luscious and rich and delicious and -- spinach. The malai kofta is spicy and warm and tomatoey and wonderful. I ate the leftovers for breakfast.
My husband & I enjoy Indian food occasionally and we find this new Amber India delightfully attractive. Ordering takes some skill & it would be nice if the staff was more helpful in explaining portion size etc. . It is often quite empty in recent visits & we hope it’s ok.
I️ was disappointed. Amber was a favorite. It was my “Go to” for delicious Indian food. This was my first time in their new location. I️ feel the menu was not what it used to be. The food —paneer, cherry bread and samosa was ok. Sadly,
I️ will not be returning. It was quite expensive—I️ want it to be a treat for that price. I️ prefer other Indian Restaurants.
The food was OK but the service was way too fast! We barely had time to swallow our last bite of appetizer that the meal was on the table. We were there for a birthday party and wanted to enjoy the evening. We ended up ordering, eating and paying within 55 minutes for 4 people. Food was OK, way too much cilantro in some dishes (for my taste) but the low rating is really due to the speed of the service NOT the quality of it. Quality of service was great.
Good place for Indian food. We have dined here several times. Each time, service needs improvement. Servers are not the most personable. Our glasses of water were served lukewarm (it was a warm day). I asked for ice only to request it a second time from a second server after waiting 15 minutes.
We have been here 3 times and think the setting and food very enjoyable. We were very surprised this time at how few people were dining when we arrived as before it has been quite crowded. We also noticed the the staff at check in was much friendlier which had been a criticism. In fact two or three came around to ask how things were and urged us to come again!
We studied the menus before we came so knew exactly what we wanted to order. One can order too much easily. It was a nice sojourn and we do hope they stay open.
