We have eaten at the Amber Fort a few times recently and it really is a super restaurant. The food is first class - really delicious - and the service excellent. In my opts probably the best Indian restaurant in the area.

Having tried quite a few local Indian restaurants and haven’t been that happy with them due to food being luke warm, I wouldn’t say I’m fussing but I don’t expect to receive my food order and have to put it in the microwave continuously. Anyway...I thought I’d give this restaurant a go as I’d heard good reviews and I’m happy to say the reviews were correct! Meal was easy to order, came exactly on time, food was the correct temperature and tasted amazing, we will definitely be ordering again. My son had a taste of ours and said it was the best keema nan he had tasted.More

After all the hype we finally decided to try this place for a takeaway. The meal was really disappointing. The prawn puri was tasteless and the prawns overcooked and rubbery. The Chicken in the Biriani was dry and overcooked and the accompanying vegetable curry, pretty...disgusting and full of what looked like reheated frozen veg. The best part of the meal were the onion bhajis and the chicken dhansak. But again the chicken was over cooked. The delivery driver wasn’t wearing a face mask or keeping his distance either. So disappointed by this takeaway. Won’t be going back.More

This evening, we made the spontaneous decision to order a curry. Supporting local, we ordered from The Amber Fort. We ordered what we have ordered in the past, as we know we like the food. After waiting just over an hour, our food arrived. When...it did, there was a fault. A chicken razala was ordered, and a chicken rogan josh arrived (photo attached). As can be seen, they bare little resemblance; no one had checked the order before it was sent out. When I phoned to check this, the kitchen confirmed there was a mistake (which was comforting) but the person on the phone coordinating this was where the issue lay. He asked if I wanted a replacement, to which I said yes, of course, as I wanted what I had ordered and not the chicken rogan josh (which was swimming in oil, see photo). I then asked if there was anything else he was going to do for the inconvenience, and he replied, “What would you like me to do?” I feel that this was a polite question, but as a business owner who has made a fault (which I appreciate does happen, and is totally ok) perhaps it would be an idea to suggest how you will resolve the issue to ensure we will continue to order from you? This is quite an uncomfortable question for a customer to answer, especially as we had already paid. When the replacement arrived, over half an hour after the call was made, the rice initially ordered was cold and the rest of my family had already eaten. Two popadoms were provided as compensation. The curry tasted great, but I just felt disappointed. On separate note, when I made this order initially, I was called ‘Madame’ by the person who answered the phone, presumably the boss as he often answers the phone. He continued to do this when I called back, and it was at this point when I said, “I’m a man, please stop calling me ‘Madame.’” He did apologise, though clearly hasn’t learnt from this mistake because he has has done this to me before, and I have called him out on it previous times too. We’re in 2020, nearly 2021, we don’t need to be referred to as ‘Sir’ or ‘Madame’ anymore. It’s a shame, as the food is good, but I’d think twice before ordering a takeaway again from The Amber Fort.More

The food was excellent and delicious. Also well-priced. The staff were very friendly, very welcoming, smiling and great. I can’t wait to go there again for my favourite curry. The restaurant is very clean and tidy, beautifully decorated with pretty lights. The best Indian restaurant...I’ve been to. Five-star rating and highly recommended!More
