Cutting edge british/indian cuisite

I love asian food and this is the best I have ever eaten in the UK. The service was excellent too. Interesting wine list to go wikth the most unusual british indian fusion food. Not cheap, but well worth it.

The food was ok when it arrived. There were only two waitresses, a young dark haired girl with glasses who worked very hard and if it wasn't for her I don't think we would have had anything to eat at all. The other waitress frowned on us when we arrived as we hadn't booked, why I don't know as it... More

We read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to book a table during our stay in Rye. We were not disappointed. This restaurant serves Fine Dining food with an Indian twist and from start to finish we enjoyed one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The quality of the food and the flavours were absolutely first class.... More

Interesting and varied menu including locally sourced seasonal ingredients. The spiced potato Dosai was excellent as was the Quinoa and mushroom biriani. My partner enjoyed the Kentish Loin cooked sous-vide as a main course. We tried the tasters in between courses; the lentil soup was very good. Friendly and attentive service in an elegant setting. I can highly recommend the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the staff in Knoops Hot Chocolate place and we are so happy we took their advice and went there! It was truly the best Indian meal I've ever had. Beautifully served and so tasty! Our two boys of 7 and 9 also thoroughly enjoyed it there and had a full adult's meal incl... More

This was fine dining with a difference. The location was delightful, the staff helpful and informative and the food unique and delicious. I think it could be called Indian fusion as every dish was flavoured with delicate spices which enhanced the over-all taste. My husband and I don't normally like Indian food but this turned out to be a subtle... More

We booked the Ambrette on line through Open Table but when we arrived the booking had not been received. However they found us a table anyway. The food was really excellent. The waitresses talked us through all the menus when serving and we could not fault anything. Just loved the whole experience and will certainly be going back. The chefs... More

This is the first time we have been to the Ambrette since they moved to no 6 The High Street. If anything I think the location is better. The food was excellent as were the friendly waitresses who were very knowledgeable about the menu. i would highly recommend the Ambrette
