We have visited The Ambrette at Margate a few times now and each time the menu has been a little different. The food is always of a good quality and standard. Well worth a visit

This was my first visit for a while and I was a little worried that with the expansion of the Ambrette empire and the absence of Dev in the kitchen the standards may have fallen. Fortunately the kitchen must have been well trained as the food is as delicate, tasty and elegant as ever. Personally I found the menu a... More

I have been trying to find time to eat at The Ambrette when in Margate since it has opened, so I was very excited to manage to get to eat here recently. There are two/three vegetarian starters but unfortunately only one main course, it would have been nice to have a second choice! The meal started with a small taster... More

Wonderfully adventurous menus. Always doing something different eg learn to cook evenings, wine tasting evenings etc. This is not a curry house- this is indian meets french cuisine- fine dining and an excellent service. We are going again tonight for the best of kent tasting menu- can't wait

This was our second visit to this restaurant, and it will definitely not be the last. We decided to book for their Winter Warming Tasting Menu for Sunday lunch. This is priced at £32 per person, but £15.95 for Privilege Card Holders. The card costs nothing, so anyone living locally (or in Rye or Canterbury, where there are Ambrettes too)... More

We have eaten here on quite a few occasions and have always had a lovely meal! It is quite pricey compared to some other local restaurants but I feel that this is justified by the experience and therefore a meal here is perfect for a special occasion! Throughout your meal you are bought little tasting plates in between courses that... More

The staff here are very tentative, the food is gorgeous and they have you appetisers inbetween your courses which is a nice touch. Great atmosphere. No faults could be made. Definitely worth it and is perfect for an special occasion.

We had the set lunch one Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is really interesting, not your run-of-the-mill Indian, beautifully presented and lots of variety of flavours. To call the service old fashioned is to compliment it - it is friendly, efficient and unobtrusive. The team clearly have sufficient confidence in their cooking not to have to keep asking... More

This is the second time I have visited this fantastic restaurant, this time on Boxing Day. Elegant, imaginative and classy food at a very good price. Indian cuisine at it's very best, no sloppy overly creamy badly spiced food just great subtle flavours in well thought out combinations. Thank you.
