It has a nice variety of items from salad, to apps, to vegetarian entrees, to non-vegetarian entrees, to desserts. Obviously you get to choose the mix you like and the portion size. After eating a...

I must say that I have had Indian food in some big name restaurants in most US cities and UK and Australia as well. I can affirmatively say that Amaya Bar and Grill is the finest Indian... More

We tried Amaya Bar & Grill (a strange name for an Indian restaurant) last night for the first time, and walked away with very mixed reviews. First of all, the inside of the restaurant has been fixed up a lot since the last owners sold the place, which was also an Indian restaurant. It is modern, even chic in appearance.... More

The owners of Amaya are a nice husband and wife team, both medical doctors, who run the restaurant as a hobby of sorts. This may in part explain the lack of attention to quality of the food and service. Having dined here a few times, I find it hard to know what to expect when ordering, because the same dish... More

Amaya has a very good ambience and can deliver food in and around the Rochester area. My husband & I visit there often, and sometimes along with our friends. We have catered food from Amaya for our parties at home as well. It has the versatility of both Traditional and Fusion Indian flavors. If you are looking for A touch... More
