Trying too hard to be modern and lost too much Indian (and a bit overpriced). Better alternatives in Rochester such as Raj Mahal and India House. We also are used to the very good restaurants in Toronto so the wateted down versions are a disappointment.

Tucked away in Tops Plaza off Clinton in Rochester Amaya provides a cozy spot for Indian food. The dinner menu has an interesting array of dishes, including a selection of small plate offerings that could easily, combined, with a starter, provide a filling dinner for one. The galic naan is quite good, especially when complemented by a draft 22 oz... More

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
