Amber India - Santana Row Ratings and Reviews
It was it first time here, and we had heard many lovely things about Amber. The food definitely delivered on flavor, which is my number one criteria. It was a prix fixed menu for Valentine’s Day, and I wish we had known that ahead of time - this wasn’t clear when we made the reservation, and I would have liked to have tried some other dishes. The meal was meat heavy and could have used more vegetable options. The restaurant and art detail is beautiful, however I think the lighting needed to be more dim to heighten the ambiance. Music would be nice too! The service was, in fact, lovely, however, and we will return soon!
Great ambiance and the servers were fantastic. The food was delicious, a bit spicy for me, but I ordering yogurt on the side and it was an amazing combination of flavors that came through.
I am inviting my friends to experience "customer service" and "great tasting food".
This is an excellent Indian restaurant. The lunch buffet is terrific. The ambiance is very attractive. It is more expensive than most neighborhood Indian restaurants but, in my opinion, well worth the price. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the South Bay, and I am not Indian or Asian.
The sister restaurant, Amber India, is in Mountain View. Very good food. The ambiance is not quite as nice, but fine.
We were dissapointed with our experience. Arrived at 1:30 PM. Several of the items in the buffet menu was gone with no sight of any refill. Most of the food in the buffet was finished and we had scrape through to get a few bites. Same with dessert.
I will NOT recommend this place.
We love Indian food, but often aren't happy with the service or how greasy some of the dishes are. Amber fixes all of that- the service is professional and friendly, the food is absolutely wonderful and we even had left-overs! A great place. Generous wine glass pours as well
My 2nd visit to Amber San Jose was disappointing - some of our dishes seemed to be warmed up - one was tepid at best - the food quality is good but its way over priced so OK if you are expensing your meal - probably 50% higher than restaurants just as good - entrees should at least include rice/nan at these high prices - not sure I can make a 3rd visit to be honest
High score for tasty Indian food, prepared with high quality ingredients. The spice is toned down to serve a broader clientele, but the taste is retained. The buffet is well priced for what's on offer. The live dosa counter is a nice touch.
Pretty much everything on the buffet menu tastes good, though some of the non vegetarian stuff has a common taste - could do with some variety in flavor.
The restaurant is nice and quite, which i like however the food was not spicy enough for me. Ti understand that they can not keep spicy food on menu because most of their customers may not like it but at least they should ask for spice level which taking the order so that People like me can get authentic india food with indian spice level and not American Indian
I have been here many times and am never disappointed. As a plus, there are plenty of yummy and interesting options for vegetarians (several included among family and friends!) . It has become one of my favorite places to dine because the food is something that I wouldn't cook at home. That makes it a treat to go here.
1) service was really slow bad-they did not even refill our water- had to call several times- we had made a reservation and even though restaurant wasn't very full we were given table in the middle of the room- waiters passing by bumped into our table several times
2) veg options really limited - only 5
3) food wasn't good for what we had been charged
NOT value for money - At least for dinner
