I visited amaya for dinner with my wife. Previously, we had visited the place for lunch buffet. And the food was decent which made us revisit. I ordered for samosa as appetizer. Of the two, one of the samosa was too greasy and oozing out oil . When i told this to a waiter or the manager perhaps, he didnt... More

We went with a small group to Amaya a week ago. The food was delicious and fresh. Our server was pleasant and upbeat. The dining room was very pretty and clean, without being over done. There is a fairly large and comfortable bar area if you like to sit and have a cocktail before dinner. The owners were there and... More

We went to Amaya Indian cuisine in Brighton last night for dinner. I was surprised to see it was rather busy. Our waitress although extremely busy greeted us at the door cleaned off the tables for us and the other two parties who walked in behind us. She immediately set us up and had menus in front of us. I... More

Visited this restaurant to celebrate my mother's bday and was surprisingly satisfied. The food and drinks were delicious and the service was excellent. Questions about the food were happily answered. Will definitely return to this restaurant.

So I went to my parents' house and I was in the mood for Indian food. My Mom suggested this place in Brighton that she hadn't tried yet. So we all went out to dinner at Amaya. The place is elegant and pleasant. Nice atmosphere. Our waiter (his name was Kaizer or something like that) was very friendly and we... More

I just enjoyed another wonderful meal at Amaya. This time, I was joined by 22 college students, many from India. They declared this food to be authentic and everyone went for seconds. Service is top notch. Sophisticated atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Jeff C.

I found this place on a Saturday night around five, first went with my mother who's a major Indian food fan. When we first walked in the place was empty, which we felt was odd but within 30 mins it was basically full, mainly families. Now we both enjoy Indian food and are always open for a new place to...

Liked the entire buffet menu. However, not enough chicken dishes and special brown rice was missing.

Thank you so much for visiting Amaya. I am glad you like the buffet. At this time we do not have brown rice on the buffet menu, but will happily consider it if there is sufficient demand. We hope you will come sometime and enjoy the a la carte dinner menu. Look forward to serving you soon. More

After serving our meals our waitress stayed behind the bar chatting with bar patrons. Service was very disappointing. My meal was poor- the rest of my family said that their entrees were good. I tasted my daughters chili chicken and wished I had ordered that instead. I ordered a shrimp tandoori - the shrimp was so basic it had no... More

Since I am new to Indian cuisine, the knowledgable server was very helpful. The cucumber water was very refreshing. The appetizer and entree were both very tasty and presented in a very appealing way. The portions were large. I left entirely satisfied with another meal for lunch the following day.
