The best indian restaurant in the Sillicon Valley....they have traditional and fusion dishes....and the weekend buffett is also very good.
Service is excellent...their party room is just right for a party of 50 people. Our numerous experiences there have been great!
For Indian buffet..don't do it. Went for a lunch buffet and there was no dhal. What kind of Indian restaurant doesn't have dhal?? The food was all average and the mango lassi came in a dirty glass. Overall just not impressed. Prices were ok since it is located in expensive real estate but the food quality just is not there. I can not figure out why this place is so much positive hype. I have seen better dessert trays in an elementary school cafeteria.
Beware of the tips being included automatically.
I went with a party of 6. They included 18% tip. That's okay. But I gave my credit card, they included additional 18% automatically (both tips marked as - included tip and additional tip). The service did not deserve 36% TIP. I immediately informed the waiter and waiter mentioned that I should only sign for first 18%. I did that but when the credit card statement came, they charged 36%. This is unethical.
Closely look at the charges in this restaurent.
Went for their lunch buffet on a Sunday. Most of the dishes were good. But i found the butter chicken and paneer masala to be too sweet compared to the versions you find in India.Maybe they have 'americanized' it a bit ?
The service was very good.
Amber India was the second time I had lunch buffet style. The food was good and the decor was very modern. I had a good time, however, I thought the food selection was small. I would have like to see more food like at Shiva's. The cost was about the same for both places. The restaurant is located in Santana Row, so it was in walking distance to the nearby shops. It was a beautiful afternoon so the group took a stroll around to burn off our lunch. Overall: 3 Stars - because the food was good even though there was a small selection and the restaurant was in a good location.
i had been to amber on a saturday afternoon in April 2007 for buffet lunch.
While the ambience was good, the quality and taste of the indian vegetarian lunch items we had was bad.The rotis and puris were thick and rubbery. Some of the items were stale and my wife could not eat.I landed with a stomach upset after spending $50 and would caution visitors who are looking for good indian food.
