About
It’s about the journey, not the destination. That’s why we took our name from the Amber Road trade route. It reflects everything that makes us special – from our eastern mediterranean roots, to our modern London spirit. It inspired us to channel the flavours of our travels abroad and our heritage into one dining experience. This is Amber. A place where all are welcome.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a delicious breakfast here, lovely choice with Middle Eastern twist to some traditional dishes. Friendly service and great selection of cakes to take away. All located in a pretty courtyard area, what’s not to like!

Fantastic find right by our hotel. Delicious, fresh and great value food. Friendly, welcoming staff and a chilled brunch time vibe. We sat at the counter so had a front row view of the kitchen, even though they were busy, they were happy to talk...us through the various dishes and even gave us a taster of the salads they were preparing for the lunch service. We will definitely be back!More

What a marvelous find! This was simply the best breakfast/brunch meal we've had in London in many a year - and in a city filled with wonderful options, its always an occasion when you find a place with so many varied breakfast choices, excellent and...attentive service, perfect tea and coffee, and a ton of lovely new touches - both on the menu, and at the tables..... The Shakshuka and Amber special choices were sublime, but do add sides to try a variety of their treats. WE should have just gone with the Amber bottomless, becuase we ended up ordering more items on the side just to taste the variety of options. We loved everything here, a ten out of ten in every area --and kudos for the fresh lemon in the avocado toast, perfectly seasoned. We hope to return in future trips to London. In fact, the table next to us had taken an over hour long journey to come for brunch, and we would do the same!More

The food and ambiance at the restaurant were satisfactory, providing a calming atmosphere. However, I would like to express some concerns regarding the professionalism of the waitstaff. Regrettably, the attitude of our waiter did not meet the expected standards of professionalism. His behavior exhibited characteristics...that were less than respectful and, at times, bordered on manipulative and cynical. (the waitress was just slightly better) I believe that the overall quality of the dining experience can be significantly improved by addressing and rectifying these issues. I appreciate your attention to this matter and look forward to a more pleasant dining experience in the future. Cheers, Dr Dilan OkcuogluMore

I have visited Amber several times and it never disappoints. The menu is very inventive, with colourful dishes pulling in influences and flavours, and always showcasing contrasting textures. On this occasion a photo of their new dish, sea bass crudo in bergamot dressing, appearing on...their Instagram, drew me in, and it was just as wonderful to eat as it is to look at. We shared other plates of crab pierogi in a spiced bisque, very tender hanger steak (you could cut it with a spoon) with chimichurri and baby onions, and a platter of grilled courgette with mint, yoghurt and crunchy dukkah. I love the decor and ambience - pale concrete with blonde wood accents and plants, and the wine list makes for great pairings as well. The team are always friendly and attentive, and I can't wait to visit again - hopefully to try their brunch menu this time!More

Food is delicious. Lots of different flavours. Burnt aubergine is like babaganoush. Yum! The mango baklava is nice but it's got way too much mascarpone in my opinion. Quite expensive for every day lunch but nice as a treat every now and then. I will...definitely be back for breakfast to try the Shakshuka.More

Nearly walked past Amber as it’s so unassuming on the outside but so glad we visited it on recommendation. Wonderful food with interested, unobtrusive but knowledgable service. A great blend of fish, meat and vegetarian/vegan dishes which means every diner will surely find something to...their liking. The atmosphere was warm and bustling but without the annoying loud music that seems to be ubiquitous these days. Not cheap, but certainly not as expensive as an Ottolenghi which this place really reminded me of. Can’t fault it.More

We were attracted by the online menu while looking for a place to eat in the area and were not disappointed! The food (we had the tasting menu) was delicious in flavour and textures, from very tasty cauliflower and courgettes to melt-in-the-mouth lamb.
