“One of the best indian restaurant's I have eaten at”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I've eaten at quite a few in many different countries.

The food is nicely prepared, with different types of spices, some hot dishes, some mild. The variety, is what is really great. There are items for all parts of indian, and as well as indonesian fusion dishes, british style indian dishes etc.

Also the atmosphere is very nice, upscale. I would consider coming here for a drink at the bar with some snacks.

While I have not sat outside, they do seem to have a nice patio for summer eating as well.

Ambiance is definitely important, sagar270! We're glad you felt ours was lovely and we are happy to hear about that from a number of reviews now. We feel that it's important to provide a great atmosphere, because we'd like eating with us to be about the whole event and not specific elements of eating out. We thank you for choosing us and for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We can't wait to see you again! Best, Rahul

“A delightful evening with great food”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Reasonably priced, attentive staff and great place to actually carry on a conversation while dining (lively but tolerable noise-level)

“New Year Celebration Indian Stye”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We love this restaurant for dinner or lunch but decided to spend New Year's Eve at Amaya's special event. The food was amazing as ever, the music, warmth and atmosphere were wonderful. The owner and his wife are welcoming hosts with sincere interest in ensuring your experience is the best. The food has always been prepared from scratch, with fresh ingredients and sophisticated seasoning.

We have been to India and have spent time with Indian friends who are amazing cooks. There's a terrific family-style Indian cuisine served in many restaurants but if you're looking for something a bit more imaginative and nuanced, plan on dinner here!
