This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the Bay Area for getting good quality Indian food.
Very busy on Friday and weekends, so make a reservation if you plan to go then. Both the vegetarian as well as the poultry/lamb/seafood dishes are good. The tandori sample is a good place to start, if you are not familiar with Indian cuisine. Kerela fish curry is delicious too. The breads are excellent.
On weekdays there is a lunch buffet which is very good also, though somewhat pricey.

For Indians: The food of Amber India is customized for Americans Don't expect exact Indian taste. The spices and masalas have somewhat different flavor but still, I liked the place.

Amber in SF is great; tasty Indian food in a great location (the SOMA and Mission ones). This one doesn't live up to the reputation. The location is a strip mall (the note on the restaurant door says, mind your stuff in the car, someone might break into it), the food was ordinary and the service was slow

Thank fudsss

I've been here with a colleague of mine originally from India.
The place looks like a family owned restaurant and waiters are really friendly and kind.
Food is very good: we got curry lamb and shrimps, really very testfull and a unbelievably great spinach pot.
I'll definitively go back in this place in the future.

This is the original Amber India and the Santana row one came later but somehow I feel that the food at Santana row is much better than this Amber. We go here often on business lunches and their buffet is just average. not much flavor to the food.
