I am not a great fan of spicy food, so tend not to go into Indian restaurants. I now wonder what I have been missing. We had the lunch time tasting menu which needs to be ordered in advance. This consists of 5 savoury dishes and one sweet. All of the dishes were amazing, bursts of different flavours served attractively.... More

Superbly tasty -- so much so that you'll be tempted to forget your manners and make-sure that you enjoy every last morsel. My husband and I loved this place so much the first time we went that we went back two days later (purely scientific interest of course - to make sure that the quality of food wasn't a fluke)....

Totally different to your average Indian. This is a gastronomic delight well presented. Unique.We have been here a few times and have always had an exceptional meal. Our friends said that it was the best meal that they had ever had.

We all (6 of us) loved the creativity and execution of the food. Many original dishes, often light and always with a taste carefully worked out to delight. A pleasurable experience from beginning to end.

Outstanding creative cooking, based on locally sourced produce, prepared and presented to a very high standard. The kitchen uses spices to great effect, but subtly. Arguably the best restaurant in East Kent. This, by the way, does not bear any resemblance to the traditional curry house !

I've been to lunch here three times this year with friends and they and I have always been amazed by the quality of the dining experience. Can't wait to try Rye and Canterbury.

We opted for the Autumn Tasting Menu when booking and we were extremely pleased with both the food and service. Whenever we are in the area we visit the Ambrette and this is one of the best meals that we have had there. Do not go expecting the usual "wet" curry and rice dishes you get in the average Indian...

We love to come and eat here! The food is always lovely and the menu is changed every now and then which allows you to try new dishes. I get regular email too to let me know of events that are coming up which is useful. I definitely recommend going and trying their food, you won't be disappointed.

I was amazed by this restaurant ! ... most restaurants in this style take a long time to cook your food and are over priced. but the ambrette has very fast service, the staff are polite and the food was beautifully presented and tasted very interesting. also as we were waiting between meals we were brought complementary soup and nibbles....

We enjoyed a great evening, the dishes were exciting and innovative, with obvious thought given to procuring local produce. The cost of this meal was very reasonable, anyone considering an Indian meal should consider going to the Ambrette and seeing how good that cuisine can be.
