Amazing service, even better food! We felt tended to the whole night, and they provided food like Chicken Tikka Masala despite it’s not being on the menu. Wonderful place!

Waiter ignored our request for menus twice. Finally had to walk out. Have had previous good experience at Amber but I guess they just want to push the expensive high margin buffet at lunchtime...

Service abysmal. Took 30 minutes to get a bottle of wine. Food worse than the service. Duck appetizer dry and chewy. Lobster main course in a nutshell: left lobster on the plate for the first time ever. Maybe the worst dining experience ever in SF. Hard to be believe it is highly rated. Had two Indian colleagues at dinner and they both agreed the dinner experience was sub-standard.

Amber is a lovely restaurant space, easy to get to on BART and staffed well. But the food was uniformly undistinguished. For four of us, we ordered two starters (Duck Breast and Cauliflower,) four mains (Butter Chicken, Lamb Chops, Chicken Biryani, and a seafood clay pot,) plus two sides and rice. Our lovely server endorsed our order as including many of her favorites. The food was pretty, arrived hot and at a good pace, but was too much alike. The flavors across the range of dishes were too homogenous. I was very disappointed and will not return nor would I recommend it.

The food was good but we were rushed to leave the restaurant as they had table reserved for other guests immediately after us. So if you want to eat with family and have a relaxed dining experience this is not the right place.

We went there for the weekend lunch buffet. Everything was great! Just wish there were better vegetarian curry options. But they change it from week to week so I would still go back!

We were early for 5:45 pm reservation by 20minutes so we asked the Manager if we could be seated or wait at the bar. He said no problem we can seat you. The hostess took us to our table in a corner where there were guests seated on either side of our table. All other areas of the restaurant were empty so we asked to be seated in the middle of the restaurant and not be confined in one corner with rest of the guests. The hostess said she was explicitly told to have us seat there. I asked to please request and check with the manager again. She came back with the same answer that the sections are divided by servers. I went to the Manager and asked to be seated somewhere else and he said that’s all the seating he has or we can wait at the bar. So we waited at the bar and in less than 15 mins our table was ready and he called us to be seated. For just 15 mins of this behavior from the Manager I am giving them low rating.
