Gathered with family and ate to our hearts content! We have vegetarian family and others. One is even an Asian chef! Everyone praised the food. Good prices, good service, good food! Can't say that often.

It is an average Indian restaurant in Carmel, IN. I had goat vindaloo and dal curry. Plane naan and rice came with it for free. I believe that food should look good at first, then it should smell good and then it should be tasty when you put it in mouth. So, at first look, the daal curry looked decent... More

We go to Amber regularly as it's our local favorite. We love their tikka masala and find we always order that dish. They do a nice job with their lunch buffet too.

This restaurant has GREAT food and staff. The only thing is it takes a while to get your food when ordering. The food is so great that I'm still rating it 5 stars!

Developing my love of Indian food from dining at " The Amber", no other Indian restaurant evens comes close to the delicious dishes they serve. The lunch buffets are exceptional, with great quality and large offerings of food included. I have tried other Indian restaurants in my travels, and have never found any that are as delicious as Amber.

Good lunch buffet with fresh naan made for order. Love their goat curry. They used to have a good eggplant dish too, but I haven't seen that in a while. Plenty of seating. Accept $1 off coupon from coupons4indy.com if you remember to print it.

This used to be my favorite indian restaurant. I worked across the street and came often. It was one of the few indian buffets in town that actually had spicy food. Today was disappointing. The dishes weren't spicy and the quality of the ingredients were lacking. Only the outer layer of the tandoori chicken could be eaten, the inner part... More
