We are glad you and your aunt had a positive experience. Our lunch buffet is delicious, but you should stop by for dinner as well, especially since you live so close! Either way, we look forward to seeing you again soon. 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.

I consider myself an Indian food snob and I almost never eat at Indian restaurants because I prefer cooking it at home. I usually find Indian restaurant food too oily and rich and redundant in terms of spice combinations. Friends suggested Amaya and I reluctantly went, in part because Amaya is also the name of my daughter! I was very... More

Amaya was my first foray into local Indian Cuisine and ,sadly, I was less than impressed. As a disclaimer I should mention I have been to Asia and had the real deal so my expectations might have been a bit high. I suspect, and my Asian dining partner concurs, the food has likely been Americanized to appeal to a wider... More

Amaya is located in the corner of a nondescript shopping plaza off Clinton Avenue. The plane exterior belies the delicious modern Indian food to be found within. The interior of the restaurant is modern. There is background Indian music which is very pleasant and enhances the atmosphere. There is a full service bar and they serve a good martini (in... More

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.
