The food here tastes incredible! This is what you call a posh Indian. Food very nicely presented and worth every penny! It has a open kitchen so it can get quite hot but it's great to see what the chefs are cooking up! Cocktails are made to perfection as well as the food! I can't wait to return, we had... More

I booked us for lunch (I had an appointment with a rugby match that night) on a Friday a couple of days... More

Its not fast food. its a place to go to enjoy magnificent flavours over 2-3 hours. Not much chance to get a table at short notice but I managed to get a seat at a communal bas/table. Just popped in an hour before opening & booked my place. Throughly modern restaurant. Based mainly upon grilling/roasting - over coals or in... More

Try the grilled shellfish and pepper chicken dishes with biryani. We are from Hong Kong and as Chinese people we love good Indian food. This is now our firm favourite!

Amaya might be one of my favorite restaurants in the world. While a meal here is sure to cost you, the food is excellent. Amaya is Indian cuisine at its best. All items are meant to be shared and you can order portions for 2 people or 4 people, so you know exactly how much food you're getting. All of... More
