Amazing

The subtlety of the flavours, the presentation, the service, the ambience - all outstanding. Worth going a long, long way for.

We nearly passed this restaurant by as it wasn't top of our list of eateries to visit in Rye but we are so thankful that we did not. From start to finish the whole experience was perfect and the food was marvellous. It is a fusion of English and Indian cookery and it works so well. They mainly use locally... More

We ate here last night at the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at and were so glad we did. The food was amazing - is fusion Indian and I guess British with wonderful flavours. We opted to have a starter and a dessert each rather than a Main and they were perfectly happy for us to do this.... More

A true dining experience. Fascinating menu served by attentive staff, with no detail left no chance. As much a dining experience, as just a meal. Look out for special promotions run every Tuesday. Definitely adding something unique to the Rye restaurant circuit.

We had previously eaten at this restaurant with no problems. My friend made a booking on Sunday evening for a party of four to have a meal at lunchtime on Wednesday. We arrived to find the restaurant was shut up with no sign of occupancy. We presumed that it had shut. Having booked less than 72 hours before we were... More

Had a lovely meal here, the food was delicious and the staff excellent. Indian food but not as we know it. Excellent gentle flavourings with 5 star presentation. If any complaint the portions were too big! We were stuffed and couldn't manage desert.

My wife and I went there there recently for their Winter Warmer. A wonderful experience! 5 courses with extras, each of them perfect. A beautifully balanced and imaginative meal which left us satisfied but not over full. Friendly and attentive service. Warm atmosphere. It simply could not have been better.

We were a group with different dietary needs from meat eaters through to Vegan and the food was really amazing. We also like the Ambrette philosophy towards employment and ingredients used in the food..well done..
