went as a party of nine. Clearly the place excels at two or four person groups.. you could tell the kitchen was struggling with the large group. VERY noisy.. Waiter seemed lost in the ambitous menu.. stumbled over the specials, not very attentive to the group, added little value to teh meal. We could have stood up and walked the... More

This was our first visit to Amani's. We had lunch which was superb, along with the great food, friendly staff and service we will definitely return. It has been quite awhile since we ate in a restaurant where staff, service, and culinary expertise all came together.

We were a party of 8, all meals were delivered together by a team of servers, including one of the chefs!. This was my first BYOB experience, our waiter was very professional with the wine service ( ice buckets, open... More

Our first-time experience at Amani's was delightful. We were pleased with the friendly and knowledgeable service and the first-rate quality, freshness, preparation and presentation of the food. Worthy of a repeat trip.

Cozy BYOB in heart of Old Downingtown. The Caribbean Grouper is outstanding. Fresh and spicy. Service was friendly, prompt and inobtrusive.

This restaurant gets two stars because of the lovely wait staff. Based on food and atmosphere, it would not fare as well. The menu looks amazing - the chef has creativity, but relies far too heavily on salt. My husband and I sampled four menu items, and the primary taste in each was salt. I was so thirsty that the...

We arrived on time for a 6 o'clock reservation and were seated immediately.from the time we sat down we felt we were on some rushed schedule. The appetizers and main entrees were fair but a bit pricey A little past 8 we were... More

We went to Amani's with my son's family and we had Sunday brunch and they had a big selection and what we all selected was very good and reasonably priced. We will definitely go again.
