Went as a 4 for dinner and found the biggest issue the staffs lack of good English and my non existent Chinese, struggled to order food and the drinks were a shambles, however they were friendly and helpful. The Peking duck was just as it should have been, tender and delicious. My sea bass was cooked very well but the... More

We weren.t too impressed on the last couple of visits, and it's been a while since we were last in the Amber. But we had no complaints this time. The food was excellent, as was the service, and the portions were massive. We opted for the luxury set menu, and after the mixed starters followed by aromatic duck, we newwe... More

Ate here for lunch. Despite being during the busy Christmas period we were only one of three couples. It was a bit cold which can happen at lunch time. Had the set lunch menu for £8:95, though my daughter wasn't hungry and only wanted soup. Ordered the basics. Chicken sweet corn soup and chicken curry. The nice waitress asked if... More

I think they were looking forward to closing up when we arrived at around 9:45 on a Tuesday evening but nevertheless the maître d’ made is most welcome and she had a pleasant and humorous manner. Our meals were well prepared and presented – both choosing variations of beef, green peppers and oyster sauce. Tasty and enjoyable. I first ate... More

It's a pretty good place to grab a quick meal. Never especially busy but always good food. Service can be a little lacklustre if it's getting busy, but overall everything is pretty good. Not your average deep-fried Asian cuisine, so be prepared to be satisfied without feeling oily.

We visited Amber today for lunch and left extremely angry! My daughter & my niece decided to eat off the eat all you can menu for £10.95, which seemed fair! I decided just to have the fixed lunch menu, I was informed by the manager that" I must only eat only from my own plate, & if I ate anything... More
