We visited last night as a party of six. From the time we came in to to the time we left the service was superb. From the starter to the dessert the taste, texture and delivery was amazing - the foods leaves your tastebuds wide awake.

This was the second best Indian meal my wife and I have ever eaten. When the best was at Benares a few weeks back this is not intended to be taken as faint praise. Far from it! The meal was near perfect from start to finish and that includes the correct service: friendly and with explanations for each course. We... More

There is little I can say about this restaurant that hasn't already been said. If new restaurants need to know how staff should operate front of house, go to the Ambrette. They are perfectly attentive without being intrusive - EXACTLY what should occur. We took my parents here for lunch for my fathers birthday as they had always said how... More

We visited as a group of 18 and the team were so accommodating to our needs. The food was divine (large groups pre-order) and came out quickly. The staff there are brilliant and made us feel very welcome. I cannot stress how good the food was though! Everyone enjoyed themselves, and they have a good range of vegetarian options too.... More

Three friends and myself visited the Turner Gallery and had heard about The Ambrette restaurant so thought we'd try it out. We were very pleased with our decision, it was superb! Food was excellent and service to match. Thank you.

The Ambrette is a wonderful place. Indian cuisine at its best, delicate flavours expertly presented in a wonderful setting with attentive waiters. What more could you ask for?

We had the 3 course lunch with a couple of chef complimentary dishes also included. Service was good, food excellent. Both of our visits have been for lunch....so next time we will visit in an evening and sample the full a-la-carte menu.

The Ambrette never fails to please. We enjoyed three courses plus the wonderful amuse bouches, three in all that arrived at various points during the meal, and every offering brought smiles to our faces. The service is faultless and the restaurant comfortable. When you are in the area this is a must if you want to enjoy a meal that... More
