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..

Possibly I do not get it, and my palate not educated well enough for the fusion thing. Reading all the reviews we were really looking forward, and even with the relatively small portions food was left over. Service was OK with the exception of having to ask for the same bottle of water 5 times, particularly as not very busy.... More

We've eaten in this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed our dining experience. It really is a special place and the ambience and service are excellent. The delicacy of touch and excellent balance of flavours and spices for this usually fabulous fusion Indian cuisine that had previously tickled and tantalised our taste buds was sadly missing. On this occasion... More

What a great meal we had- starter main and dessert, with the complimentary a mouse vouches which came in between. All on two for one on Taste which made it excellent value. Loved the soft shell crabs. Adored the pheasant and the desserts were terrific.

Had the fresh fish and sea spinach and it was one of the best fish meals I've had. Not your usual Indian fare or menu but a delight for spice lovers - with some good looking non Indian options!

Went to the ambrette to celebrate anniversary. The atmosphere, service and food were all excellent accept that I had a very large lump of gristle in my turkey. They were very sorry for this and did automatically take 10% off the bill. I did think it was a bit cheeky that service charge was automatically added even for a table... More
