I had a great lunch today! I gladly recommend Amaya for lunch or dinner. The service and atmosphere are great! The naan is the best I have ever had. Keep up the good work! -Josh

The food is awesome. I love Indian food but this was the absolute best I've ever had. Everything on the menu is delish. I only wish my husband loved Indian food too. I would be there all the time.

Having lived in the Indian subcontinent for 5 years, I am a great fan of Indian food, and what I had at Amaya didn't even come close. The flavors were bland, the spice non- existent.(in fact, no one asked us how spicy we would like our dishes to be) I was especially disappointed in the chicken momo. The chicken tasted... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch and had a wonderful experience! Very pretty restaurant environment. The buffet was ample and included many awesome dishes. The staff was very friendly and attentive without crowding us while we ate. We'll definitely stop in again when we're on that side of town.

Had the buffet today on our first visit. I was impressed. Freshest naan, delectable curry with a touch of heat. Veggie pakora (spinach and cauliflower) were uncommonly crisp, not greasy at all. Not as extensive as Thalia of India, but far more attentive to cuisine. A delightful discovery. We will be back for sure.
