First time visit today, was highly recommended by my son, so we gave the restaurant a try. He was not wrong! the menu was varied, the food full of tasty spices, each dish was explained, the service matched the quality of the food,SUPERB! Looking forward to our return, which will be sooner, rather than later. A hidden gem!

Excellent food with a wonderful variety of diffrent spices etc. Not the place if you're looking for a bog standard 'Curry House'. This is special, no Chicken Tikka Masala here - Thank goodness.
We have been several times and all been good. However, the service last time was a bit on the slow side, but don't let that deter you from going. You will not be dissapointed.

Amazing, great, fantastic, there are no more words to describe the Ambrette. Lunchtime menu is superb value and the whole taste experience is out of this world. Sam, Peter, Toby, Dev and of course Anil just make it a sheer pleasure to dine here.
Service is good with every dish explained as you get it. Amuse Bouches add the final touch to a great dining experience.
Just lucky to live in Margate so near to this gem of a place.

The food is outstanding and really well priced , in fact if we were nearer to London I am sure it would be at least twice the price.
book early at weekends as it gets really busy and would be a disappointment.
Situated in the Old Town in Margate which is buzzing nowadays

If you are looking for the usual Curry House this is not it
Ambrette is Indian fine dining , the food is a beautifully presented , superb mix of locally sourced ingredients mixed with the exotic flavours of Indian spices and a great amount of Michelin worthy flair. The staff and service are excellent and the prices are really reasonable too. If you are over 60 then you can get an excellent lunch for £10.95 , 3 courses plus a few extra tasty treats in between courses and sometimes even a free glass of wine. They also know their stuff when it comes to the sometimes difficult job of matching great wine with Indian flavours. If you like good food and you like the flavours of India then you really must try this restaurant - you will not be disappointed.
