I stumbled upon this restaurant having just landed in the US so no prior research. It was pretty busy on a Tuesday evening but they seated me quickly. I chose a chicken kofta starter which sounded great, minced chicken with almonds and cooked in the tandoor. The portion was bigger than most main courses. Flavour ok, way too much cardamom... More

This is the third time we visit this restaurant. First for lunch, an as I recall, it was really very good. That's the reason why we took the whole family for an Anniversary dinner and it was a total disaster. Food was good, but it took 30 minutes for a waiter to appear, and when food was ordered we spent... More

Very tasty Indian food! Nice ambience. The only downside is that it's a little bit pricey for Indian food -- but worth the premium!

Amber India in Mountain View is our favorite Indian restaurant anywhere. Friendly service, delicious food and always a variety of interesting choices, we never tire of Amber India's delicious cuisine. The setting is not very exciting; it is located in a nondescript strip mail. But the food and friendly service more than make up for what the décor lacks. If... More

The food is very authentic, but the portion is very small for the price they charges. Another star for the nice ambiance.

Pros: Good ambience, consistent food, sumptuous portions, good service and variety in the menu. Did I say ample choices for vegetarians! Cons: Noise.

Menu has a good selection, service was very good. We shared several dishes, all were very tasty and well-prepared. While the outside is a basic strip mall the decor and atmosphere inside is much more refined.

An Indian friend of mine took me to this restaurant during my recent trip to the Bay area. The place has a nice ambiance. I ordered seafood curry after getting the suggestions from the polite server. I was delighted by the dish, as well as the appetizer. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

It was a special occasion and well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive to get there. Do I need to say more. Yeah, don't forget to order the Baingan Bharta (Baked Eggplant).

We stumbled in here a few years ago and enjoyed the buffet lunch. So brought our son and daughter-in -law back later that trip for dinner and was surprised at how much more formal the dinner was and how much more sophisticated the menu. Returned this summer during our annual visit to the area and enjoyed the dinner even more... More
