Amber India Ratings and Reviews
We had an amazing holiday get together of friends. We loved the cauliflower in coconut creme and the flash fried spinach. The butter chicken might just be the best anywhere. Service was friendly and helpful, ambiance was just right for catching up. Location right downtown feels special. Can't wait to return.
The food arrived hot but I received the wrong meal at first. They apologized saying they were unusually busy. When my meal finally arrived it was good but not among the best Indian I have had. There was very little depth to the flavors. The Naan was definitely not very good. It reminded me of an overdone pita more than a Naan, dry and flavorless.
I requested a quiet table and was really pleased that the request was honored. Our server was great! He managed our small group arriving at different times very well and was attentive without being obtrusive. The atmosphere is pleasant and the location great from the parking and public transit viewpoint. It is a good reliable downtown restaurant, though a little pricier than I had remembered.
I've been eating at Amber India for many years and always been impressed by the food. This meal was, unfortunately, quite disappointing. They seem to be just coasting on their reputation, as the food was really not very good. I like spicy food, but not at the expense of flavor, and there was very little flavor in most of the dishes other than chile.
Please note this was for the lunch buffet. I cannot comment on their dinner or a la carte service for lunch.
It is probably my tenth trip to Amber in 2 years and I have never been disappointed. They continue to maintain their standards whether it is the lunch buffet or the dinner menu. Probably the best North Indian food in San Francisco city area in my opinion. Every one of my guests wants a repeat performance there!
The food here is upscale Indian and delicious and the restaurant seems to draw a mainly Indian crowd. There are things on the luchtime buffet (which is so much better than any of the other Indian buffets I’ve been to) that sometimes are too spicy for my gringo taste, but there are things on the menu that aren’t too spicy. My favorite appetizer is the palak chat, flash-fried spinach served with tamarind sauce. It’s my go-too place for birthday lunches.
What can I say? It was just a dinner with a friend - the food was delicious, the beer was cold, the service was timely and polite! In other words the evening went smoothly and I would gladly recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a pleasant meal!
We've eaten here several times and always enjoyed it. This time we brought three other couples and had one of the best meals that we've ever had here. Great appetizers were cauliflower, and lentil bites. Entrees we enjoyed were lamb chops and mushroom kofta among others.
