Visit to Amma was nice. Pros: Good quality, portion and authentic taste. Paneer in mint sauce was very unique and extremely tasty. Cons: too many people outside but so less in kitchen, takes forever to get the food.

I took a group of colleagues to Amma last night. We had no reservation, but were quickly seated. I was impressed that they had a sommelier and a decent wine list - I ordered two bottles of white wine, both of which were good. I...More
