Sunday brunch

Visited Amaya for a birthday celebration. Had a wonderful brunch. The naan was at the table before we got back from buffet line (excellent service). Food was fresh and the owner was charming as always. Will definitely return!! Cheers :) P.s - don't forget to try the chocolate samosa for dessert!

This place is a hidden gem in Rochester. The owners are fabulous people and very welcoming. The service can be hit and miss, but the food is well worth any minor service issues that you may encounter.

I've always been happy with the service I've received here! I come a few times a month for lunch and get the buffet. The price is reasonable, and there is a good variety of choices. The buffet offers "classic" Indian items as well as some that are less common. You can also pick up salad, fruit, dessert, and chai to... More

Visited Saturday evening in June 2015. Place was sparsely attended but light haired waitress spent most of her time talking to other staff at the bar and neglected to ever bring cocktail that was ordered. She asked about it as we were finishing our dinner which was uninspired. I am surprised this place has received the top rating for Indian... More

Went here on a Friday night with my daughter and easily got a table. I was surprised at the decor once I got into the restaurant--sort of a mod sixties vibe. They had a woman playing dinner music on the keyboards which I really enjoyed. Poppadom appetizer with sauce was delicious. My daughter ordered a virgin pina colada which was... More

We apologize that our staff was not as attentive as they should have been. We will make sure to address this with the waitress working that evening. The spice level can be regulated on most dishes so make sure to specify the spice level you would like. (You may have done so, just wanted to mention it just in case.)... More

Kaiser was excellent. We came when it was busy for lunch. He made it very enjoyable and kept us informed about what was on buffet versus the menu. We will be back to see him soon!!

My husband and I just had an amazing dinner at Amaya's. We been there several times and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding, as is the service. And, the best part is that almost everything on the menu is gluten free. If you haven't tried it yet, you must!
