Indian fine dining is probably a small niche in the restaurant-field, and this is a great restaurant with exciting open-kitchen, tasteful dishes and a welcoming atmosfere. They have had a michelin-star for almost a decade - well-deserved! But there are still ways to improve the menu. The presentations could be even more impressing and look more like a piece of...

Had a business lunch here a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised by how tasty the food here is. Recommend to try the black pepper chicken tikka and the Fig/Spinach cakes, they are both absolutely delicious. The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated with attentive serving staff and a very cool open kitchen with huge kiln type ovens. Would... More

The menu was unimaginative, starters arrived late and cold, part of it was uncooked and had to send it back! The rest of the meal was ........ words fail me!! This is a Michelin Star restaurant, I can get better food from my local Indian takeaway. The best they could come up with was " tandoori broccoli with yogurt" this... More

Six of us had an amazing set lunch menu here. Dish after delicious dish of asian cuisine was brought out for us the ahre. Too many favourite dishes to mention, but the four accompaniments were divine, especially the coriander and rose petals, the hake and chicken byriani dishes were superb! Cocktails and wine were pricey, but it was a special... More

Lunch time visit, had the Amaya lunch special, good variety of starters and main course for £42. Starters of chicken, lamb and prawn with spinach and nan bread. Prawn and lamb chops particularly good. Starters came out so quickly had to ask to slow down, which they did. Friendly attentive service and asked if everything was Ok. Attentive but not... More

I think this place works on all levels. Ambience, staff, menu - wine selection and above all the quality of the food that they served last night. Textures, colours, flavours and presentation all faultless. The food style is a tad less fussy than that in the Michelin star arena and in my opinion better for it. Around £80 ( including... More

Amaya's menu clearly states that their services are intended to provide a splendid succession of varying plates. That was an accurate description of how the meal went. There was plate after plate of widely varying flavors and palatal experiences. Really nice space, great service. Got a michelin star in 2007. Solid restaurant.

After a visit for lunch last year, I returned with friends for dinner last month. Again, the food was excellent, with a couple of dishes outstanding (prawns, lamb chops). For an Indian restaurant, however, the selection is beers is atrocious. There must be just four or five to choose from, one of which was not available. Come on! One of... More

A very nice indian restaurant experience . It was beyond my expectations and I really enjoyed the each dish I tried. If you already decided to go an indian restaurant , Amaya is not a gamble.

The meal we had was quite outstanding! The maitre D was excellent at explaining the menu and its flow.. The sweet potato starter was superb The seabass and chicken tikka main courses were just wonderful flavours. Sadly my wife found the ladies room was unclean...I'm sure this was a one off but I have to report honestly..
