SF Weekly's Description

One of the region's best Indian restaurants, this surprisingly expansive and luxurious place (located in an unprepossessing mini-mall) features impeccably prepared classics (tandoori meats and seafood, samosas, pakoras, curries, and vegetable dishes) as well as more unusual dishes such as lamb curries in mild almond or hot chile sauces, hot goa fish curry, and a famed specialty, butter chicken (in a deep-orange spicy sauce). Buffet lunch is a terrific bargain.

    the butter chicken is amazing!

  • Cindy L. on 04/17/12

    Tonight I discovered that it is not that I don't like Indian food, but that I only like, well love good Indian food. Amber is the best I've ever had.

  • Denise on 01/30/11

    The sukhi bhindi (spicy okra with onions) is delicious! Ask for medium-mild spiciness.
