As usual, we loved everything! We started with cocktail's (spice route, honey something and an Amber Manhattan) plus papad. Yum! My friend had the saffron lobster, my husband had the sea bass curry and I had the tandoori paneer kabob. We split a few orders of olive oil naan which balanced the meals. We all absolutely loved everything and are already looking forward to our next meal at Amber India! Thank you for another excellent dining experience :-)

Went at at night and it was incredibly dark, both server and our party could barely see each other. We ended up leaving early as everyone was falling asleep. The drinks were also way too sweet and when I asked them to lighten it, they dumped out the whole drink, left some raspberries and replaced with club soda. Not great for the cost. The food is usually pricey but given the lack of good Indian food in the city, I would go here. But given all these other issues, this might have been the last time.

We ordered veg biryani, chicken biryani (portion a bit small for 2), chicken tikka, and rotis. All the food was extremely flavorful and portions were mostly good. Went here twice on our week-long trip!

The food was absolutely incredible, just not as spicy as I’d have appreciated. Either way, it was impeccable. Portions were above par, and every dish came out spaced appropriately to coordinate with our drinks as we socialized. The only drawback was that our waiter only came to the table twice: once to ask our order and once to see if the food was okay. The bussers did ALL of the work and were much more polite with helping our table while dining. Originally I had wanted to leave four stars solely because our server was nowhere to be found. However, due to the extra staff and their accommodations by asking about food and to go boxes and consistently filling up our waters, I rated this five stars.

Food was very, very tasty. Service was OK but not great, we had to ask a couple of times for drink menus, for example. On the whole it felt a little expensive for the overall experience. Will definitely go back, though!

While others were seated without reservations, I would suggest reservations as they appear to give those with reservations the nicer tables!

This time around - All the food was good, except the paneer dish which was overcooked and it almost felt like they had put tofu instead of paneer. First time we are seeing bad quality food at amber, which has always exceeded our expectation

I brought a friend who had not dined here before and, while he enjoyed it, the prices were too high. He can totally afford it but he probably won’t be back. I’ll be back for sure 😊

The food tasted “sweet”. Where are the Indian spices? They also can’t make a happy hour cocktail during non-happy hours?? Seriously?

Went twice this week for lunch - very convenient location close to Moscone center. The buffet is great. Plenty of choices chicken , goat, fish and vegetarian . My favorite dish remains butter chicken. Friendly service.

My friend and I ordered samosas and the bread basket for the table. And for my entree, I ordered the lamb chops. Everything was tasty. The lamb chops were marinated well and roasted nicely, though I would have liked them to be a little more pink rather than well done. The service was less than stellar. We ordered cocktails. They arrived so late (we were drinking wine and ate the appetizers: no cocktails!) that I canceled my order. Even after the server knew that we were upset that the cocktails hadn't arrived, my friend didn't get his until after the entree came.

The lunch buffet, was very standard like any other restaurants. The fried fish was dry and cold. The butter chicken had old hard rubbery chicken. The deserts ( used to be amazing) are now reduced to cut fruit, one indian sweet, and a cold Costco ( perhaps) bread pudding chopped into bite sized pieces. Soooo disappointed!!!

The food options were very good and we enjoyed the overall service. The restaurant seating could have been a little more spacious. A pet peev… the menus were on a plastic laminated copy. For a great place in SF, a little improvement will go along way. Well definitely return to eat here again as we loved the food and service.

They've been my go-to for takeout and delivery and this was my first time dining in. They serve all the classic recipes with high quality ingredients. Service was fast and efficient. The decor is very nice so you can have a casual or a more special occasion-focused dinner. Definitely recommend them.

They were quite a lot bigger than we expected! They were very good though. We just had quite a lot to take home! The service was a little patchy, but I think we confused them by just ordering appetizers. Rather expensive as well - nearly $20 for dal? Very good though and would go again.
