So much choice on the menu whatever you feel like eating. Sea bass is delicious. Peking duck bun well worth a try to wet the appetite.

The food was good. They have different kinds of Asian food. If you'd like to enjoy the variety, this is a restaurant for you. We ordered dimsum sampler, some rolls, and pad thai as well. They were all good. The service was pretty good, nice wait staff.

We had dinner at the Amber and ordered sushi and shashimi for two. It turned out to be an excellent choice, as the food was fesh and delicious. We could also benefit from their happy hour and had cocktails and a bottle of decent red wine at a very reasonable price. Commendable.

Fantastic range of appetizers. Try as many as you can and skip the main courses unless you have a sweet tooth though the mango chicken is fun to try. Decent service in relaxed atmosphere. I try and visit each time I'm in NYC.
