When we first started talking about the ami concept, the questions we kept asking ourselves were "what would we want to eat?" And "what sort of restaurant would we like to eat in?" From the small acorn of an idea ami bistro became a reality and opened its doors in June 2014. We are an independent, local family run business offering an alternative to the standardised fare of the large chains. Our independence allows us the luxury of being very flexible with our menu, constantly evolving our menu options as the seasons and tastes change. From the very beginning the ambition was to serve customers with the best quality lunches and first class dinners. We are particularly passionate about fresh,

In Worthing for a family do. Celebrating father in laws birthday. Great restaurant. Good well cooked tasty food. Service was friendly and helpful. If this place was closer to where we live we would be regulars. Thank you Ami Bistro.

Superb food in this contemporary bistro restaurant. Good service and the food was delicious. We had Goats cheese crostini and lamb meatballs for starters. With mains of Duck breast and rump of lamb. Tempted by desserts but gave it a miss, save that for next...time.More

Visted for lunch a few months ago (forgot to add a review) so after a dinner over this weekend, made sure to share with you! Truly wonderful place to dine with family and friends whatever the reason. Welcome was warm and with a smile behind...their masks (very thoughtful even when not needed now) and table was ours for the evening - no rushing us at all. Food is delightful, beautifully presented and devine to taste - with attentive, not over bearing staff (just the two guys all evening) to ensure our evening was perfectMore

I booked Ami for my Partners birthday as we had always wanted to go there. I pre ordered the ChateauBrianne and it was amazing, we went with the chefs recommendation for how it should be cooked and it was perfect. We both said that the...starters and main were superb and it was one of the best meals we have had. Can also recommend the cheese board. The service was excellent too. It is above average price wise but I think for an occasional treat it’s definitely worth it.More

We have been staunch fans of Ami since day 1. The food is always amazing and that hasn’t changed. However, on this occasion I have to say the service was quite slow. A 1915 booking with no food orders taken until 2000. Service remained very...slow. The food we had was undeniably good,but the price hike is very obvious. I am a firm believer in ‘you get what you pay for’ and we could not fault any of the food here, but almost £10 per starter (the calamari a rather small portion especially) and close to £30 per main is a little excessive, especially with the location. I know a restaurant can’t help where it is, but town centre/seafront prices for Rowlands Road is a bit of a stretch. We would come here every couple of months pre-lockdown and will continue to come back, but now as a once in a while treat due to the top-end prices. I have to compliment the margarita very highly though.More

My wife and I went to scout out this restaurant because we are planning to have a large family celebration. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is family owned and several of the family work together in the place, always a good sign! My wife...chose from the special lunch menu (3 starters and a glass of wine) and I chose a starter and a main from the a la carte so we tasted 5 dishes from the well thought out menu. Really excellent food with quality ingredients and ample portions that left us feeling comfortable and not over distended. There is an extensive wine list with prices that won’t break the bank. Service was impeccable, friendly yet courteous, attentive but not overbearing. Undoubtedly the best by a mile of the many restaurants that we have tried in Worthing and Brighton&Hove and we will be booking our family celebration at Ami.More

We enjoyed a lovely night compliments of Ami! We shared the calamari starter and immediately regretted it as I wanted the whole thing. I chose the filet and it was simply amazing. Seared and seasoned perfectly. I did ask for medium rare and it was...closer to medium so if rare is your thing, just go there. It was delicious. My husband got the prawn penne and that too was amazing. Our friend got the bream and he absolutely devoured it. The portions are very generous so go with a healthy appetite. The wine selection was very complimentary and reasonably priced so we were able to get a couple to share!More

Wow! What a lovely surprise,you can tell this is run by a family that cares,which is why we never eat in Chaineys,the food ,service & ambiance is fantastic here. This restaurant would knock the spots off most top London restaurants easily. Shannon our waitress was...excellent. It is not cheap but worth every penny,the folk of Worthing are lucky to have such a quality establishment. Thank youMore
