Excellent service. Wonderful choice of fusion dishes delicately spiced and delicious, many with locally sourced ingredients. Well deserves its Michelin listing

We'd just been to the Turner Gallery on a very windswept day, with the sea at its angriest, so the calm serenity of this superb modern Indian restaurant was most welcome. We'd booked -a good job as its not that big and was full to busting soon after we arrived. The 3 course set lunch was both outstanding value and... More

We enjoyed the 9 course tasting menu. The food was delicious - maybe the portions were a little too generous but that's not a bad thing. The presentation and sauces were fantastic. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

There are certain Indian restaurants outside the high street range that offer an extra special experience to the customer. The Ambrette is one of these. Located in a street behind the main shopping centre in Margate, the venue is quiet, which adds to the tranquillity inside. A quick glance at the menu confirms its connoisseur's quality at modest prices ,... More

I've wanted to go here for a very long time. I wasn't disappointed. it was a Monday night yet still enough people in there to not feel quiet. and the food was of an excellent standard. presentation was outstanding, but it tasted delicious as well. service was very good as well, not overbearing or rushed. a lovely evening. thank you

Although this is an Indian restaurant there is not a curry on the menu, but a fusion of nouvelle cuisine, and indian. I have been there several times and always thoroughly enjoyed everything they serve. it is an hours drive for me to get there, but looking forward to going there again

This restaurant has an excellent reputation I'm surprised there are other places rated higher in good old Margate. The Chef is up for an award as the Best in Kent up against the guy from Chapter One which boasts or had a Michelin star.....although good it ain't that! I digress, the Ambrette is fusion extremely well done. Theirs one restaurant... More

good flavoursome food...but a bit limited for the vegetarian. lovely aromatic twists on flavours. Not greeted on arrival quick enough , left to meander Service hurried, food plonked down even though they take time to run through the items on the plate...wine list whipped away from me when we ordered water..so I didn't order wine later as I was going...
