Went here for lunch, found the food was fine, not as good as that at others we found. Appreciated that you can order a small or large portion, great for sharing.

This was my second visit to Amaya and I must say I didn't really think much about the food this time. I really couldn't understand which part of India this cuisine inspired from? It was a bit confusing for my likings. The Birany had mustard...More

Great restaurant. Indian food with a twist. We have been here repeatedly and always order the tasting menu. While it is a pricey restaurant it is well worth the expense. When making the reservation make sure to ask for a table away from the grill...More

This is possibly the most uncomfortable restaurant I have been in a long time. Tables are so close to the grills where they cook all the food that you are cooked as well! There is not protection and it was so hot we could barely...More

The food here is great and is basically all prepared over an open fire. The kitchen is basically a large fireplace in the dining room and one sees the food being prepared. A great experience with great food.
