Stopped by for lunch and had the buffet. Everything was really tasty and it was reasonably priced. Good place for lunch and dinner.

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

I work in Carmel and eat lunch out pretty much every day. I usually make it over to Amber Indian about once a week. This is good, high-quality food. Not being an expert, I can't say how authentic it is, but I suspect it's the real thing. My only regret when I go here is that my stomach is not... More

The buffet was good. It was clean, temperature was right. The Naan bread was tasty. My only disappointment was the mango custard. It fruit reminded me of the fruit Cocktail that comes from a can .
