Been to this place many many times.. The food is very good, lunch time is busy but since its buffet it goes fast. Visited recently with a friend of mine for lunch and was not disappointed. We could find a quite corner so we were able to talk, as otherwise it gets a bit noisy..

We have been long time customers of this restaurant, which recently moved to it's new location. The new location on El Camino Real is better, feels more spacious and it has a nice outdoor eating area. For nights when the weather is clear, the outdoor dining is great; they do have local heaters to take off the chill. We love... More

The food is ok if I compare with other Indian restaurants in the bay area. The staff is not very nice and the place is not very clean. Could have been better. Parking space is good. Owner needs to be more proactive in attending customers.

We went to Amber and the food was great. Place is loud and they bring you appetizers before you even get your drinks. There are waiters just hanging around doing nothing and service is sub-par. We sacrificed the details for the food!

Indian food in general is not super expensive but this food is worth every penny you pay. Don't get scared by the price because its definitely delicious. The service can get a little better.

The Butter Chicken is to die for, but the best value is the lunch buffet, not the normal menu. Kind of pricey, even so - but the best Indian food in Mountain View!

I've been to several of the Amber restaurant, most recently I went to this one for lunch. The food was very good, as always, but it's toned down for westerners IMO. Especially the lunch buffet. I like my indian food to have a little more of a kick to it.
