It was a very wonderful evening as it was a special occasion. Ambiance, food and the service was very good as expected. It is always one of my favorite places to go for having lunch or dinner. Thank you.
Champagne buffet Indian lunch for $25/person in downtown SF with lots of variety of both vegetarian and non-veg dishes. This is great value.
The host was rude
Fabulous Indian Food! Great service! Fine tables! Will be back!
Good ambience, bad food!! This place is pricey, that is fine but the taste of the food is not even close to indian food. If i heat my togo food the day after, i assume that will taste better.
Ambience is good for an indian restaurant but everything else, including service is bad. I had higher expectations from this place, but it was an utter disappointment. Breads were frozen ( no fresh breads), curries were spice-less and sweet. Not even close to good indian food. Big no, if eating good indian food is on your mind.
Delicious, as usual. My only negative is that it's a tad pricey, but I don't mind paying more for excellent food.
Good Indian dishes with some creative twist. Getting a table took some time past the reservation time but once seated it was a good experience
Excellent Indian restaurant, the best of SF. Food is authentic and of great quality, beer is good, ambience is nice.
The Chicken Biryani rice is excellent, same (if not better) than the best restaurants in Hyderabad.
Best Indian food we’ve ever had, and that’s saying A LOT. The wait service was one of the best we’ve ever experienced as well. But, for the first time, we went with a stroller, only to learn that they don’t allow strollers. We had a travel stroller that did not allow the seat to be removed, and our 6 month old is too small for a high chair. They ended up going out of their way to accommodate us, but just be forewarned, don’t bring a stroller in the future.
Best classy Indian buffet (lunch) in town. They always have a live cooking station, love their appetizers and deserts.
Table was not ready at time it was booked for which in and of itself wasn’t that bad but the attitude of the manager was rude and horrible. I merely asked (so I could weigh my options) how long it would be before the table would be ready and he responded he had no idea, that I should sit down, and that I should consider myself lucky for having a reservation at all, or else I would have had an 1.5 hour waiting time. A small apology for the delay is all that’s required to keep a guest with a reservation happy.
They offered us the menu per person option
Not good, better a la cart
Excellent Indian Food and great service! The lunch buffet is the best but dinner was also good
I go here quite often one of our favorite places for a friends or family lunch..excellent buffet
I've been going to Amber for many years and have ranked it high on my list of preferred restaurants in this SF neighborhood. But this time the lunch buffet seemed duller and less flavorful than in the past. The butter chicken was bland, the naan was dry, etc. I trust this was just an off-day and will give it another try. Meanwhile, it wasn't bad, but I was disappointed compared to stellar past experiences.
