My wife and I first started eating at Amba back in September 2013. My wife can be very picky and had to take some persuading to try something off the menu. From that first visit I would say we have been back around ten times and never once had a bad meal nor bad service. The staff are amazing and... More

Service and ambiance perfect as always but the food was symptomatic of either a poor chef or cheaper ingredients. Steak was chewy and every item was more reminiscent of Fawlty Towers than a perfect meal as every time before. Such a shame as the place is perfect but smacks of cost cutting or problems in the kitchen. Will not be... More

I can highly recommend this restaurant. They have a modest price Set Menu in addition to a wide a la Carte choice. The food is well presented, imaginative and very tasty. The front of house staff are excellent. Give it a try.

Being a regular eater out in restaurants across the country, nothing beats coming home and eating out locally. Amba does the job admirably. Good good & drinks, solid service and pleasant atmosphere. Always a winner.

This was my first visit to Amba. Ate off the set lunch menu. Lovely food well presented. Good service by an enthusiastic staff, nice decor and ambiance. Value was also good for a restaurant of this standard. Will certainly visit again when in the area.

Enjoyed a lovely meal to celebrate my daughters birthday. I've been to Amba a few times and consistently good. This time I had duck breast which was fabulous, cooked lovely and pink and a huge portion. I will come back here. Food and service consistently good.

I had a two hour business lunch at AMBA. The service was attentive and perfect as always without being at all intrusive or clock watching. The food was lovely and presented so beautifully. The owners have transformed the site that until the late 70's was a bicycle and moped shop, then Hale Wine Bar into a really cultured and special... More

Its a regular restaurant of mine due to the staff being so friendly, upbeat and attending to you very quickly. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the range of drinks on offer is brilliant. This all comes together when you receive the food and WOW. The fish is always amazing, the steak just melts and the starters are really tasty.... More
