This certainly an up-market Indian themed restaurant, but on the Friday night we went, the service was VERY slow - 2 hours to get our main course.

Very enjoyable. We take advantage of their special offers as it is a bit more expensive than basic Indian restaurants. Well worth a visit if you want to try something a little different.

Very limited parking outside, luckily we got a space as my husband is disabled. Inside very pleasant and clean albeit a little dated. Staff very attentive and knowledgeable and upon serving the dishes, told us what we were going to eat. Food superb but to be fair for the price it should be, certainly not cheap, and the drinks are... More

Our party of 4 on a Saturday lunchtime on a hot summer's day had a great meal here. The food is a fusion of traditional British foods with an Indian twist, so this is not the place to come for your run-of-the-mill Indian curry. I enjoyed a Kentish sausage starter with a Kentish pork (pork and crackling cooked to perfection)... More

Our first time here, heard great things and, wow, the food was simply wonderful. Not what we expected but amazing flavours and freshness. The staff were very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be back.

We had been to the Canterbury restuarant which was amazing, so hoped the Margate one would be as good , we weren't disappointed lovely touches like small samples of delight In between courses highly recommend . The only very slight down fall in both restuarants is the toilets which could be spruced up a little

I went to Ambrette with my family on recommendation from a friend and we were all a bit disappointed by the restaurant. The food sounded delicious but was overspiced so as to take away from what you were eating- you couldn't taste the fish unfortunately nor the venison shoulder. The pork was also a bit dry. Aside from that staff... More
