I took my wife and daughter here while visiting NY this last weekend. Previous reviews speak highly of the food in most cases and it gets good ratings for ambience. The reality is that this is very much a low key neighbourhood Indian restaurant. Nothing wrong with that except that it is just not a special dinning experience. The banquettes... More

This is a small restaurant and a little "tired" in the interior. However as a solo diner they were very welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It was delicious and not overly westernised in terms of level spice or flavours. I had a lovely dinner and will return with my other half! I think prices... More

My wife and I ate here over the TG holiday and were very happy with our dining experience. We both ordered the tasting meal which was excellent and very filling (so take your time) The food was very tasty and the service was very attentive. The restaurant is small and I would make reservations.

This restaurant was recommended by the Palace Hotel and the recommendation was extremely well placed. The service was informative and copious. We had a variety of dishes and one was better than the next

I nice little Indian restaurant to visit. Straightforward menu supported by fantastic service. Couple of different, genuine Indian beers to try here too...Taj Mahal and Flying Horse - lovely. Is expensive however, but this is New York! 18% service charge as standard built into your bill. Overall would recommend.

We've been to Amma 3 times over the past year and I have to say the place offers the best and most original Indian food anywhere. The dining room is warm and cozy, with a pinkish color scheme more like a French restaurant (It can feel a bit cramped though when full). The service staff is very attentive. The distinctive...

$12.95 for the traditional northern Indian lunch. Good value, freshly prepared foods, but not exactly quick meal. I'll be back though. Lamb Korma was great, Nan were maybe the best ever.

Best Tiki Masala (Butter Chicken) I've ever had. Friendly staff, felt very comfortable dining alone. Food was fantastic - authentic but upscale. Small restaurant so a little warm but worth it!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
