I love this place. Chicken vindaloo at its finest. Get the Amber Punch if you want to get a little buzzed before dinner.

I've been here many times. There is a large selection on the menu suitable for whatever you eating style is. The food is good, I've never had a problem. It is a little pricey and if you ask for more rice with your meals they will charge you (which isn't a practise for other Indian restaurants I've been to). Definately give it a try. They have a full bar with many delicious drink options! The service is always A++

That being said- if you order meat entrees they will be good. As the only indian restaurant around I come here occasionally. Definitely had better but it's the only place around :(

Convenient to Moosic and Scranton area, just a few minutes off Route 81 from two exits. Parking and access are easy. Decor is OK, not notable. The lighting is low level but fine in the large and small dining rooms which contain both booths and tables. Service was subdued and a bit stiff, yet efficient. Not friendly but no complaints.

Menu offers a few Indian beers and many more domestics. Wine by the glass is also offered.

Food menu is long with many Indian standards such as Vindaloo, Masala, Korma and others. Many of these are offered using chicken, lamb, veal and goat as well as vegetarian versions. We ordered Vindaloo (Goat), Korma (Chicken), which were accompanied by (the normal, but good) Basmati Rice. These dishes (and the previous ones...) were representative of Indian we've had elsewhere, being tasty, somewhat spicy, (with heat as requested) and of the kind, not notably great or bad. They were as expected, and gave us the "Indian" hit we sought (in a sea of Italian, Chinese restaurants... and ubiquitous franchises).

We always order a Naan (usually garlic...) as accompaniment and this was as expected.

The vegetable fritters appetizer was just OK, and weren't to our liking, being sort of just anything breaded and fried. We may opt for a full vegetable entree as a side dish next time and forgo appetizers entirely. (Yes, we will have some take home, but Indian reheats pretty well.)

We have stopped here twice and will return again when the Indian urge calls. There are few Indian places in the Scranton area, and as such Amber is a goto place worth trying. Since it is among the best (and only) Indian in this area, we think it gets 4 stars just surviving and delivering a decent product in a market where it isn't a "favored" cuisine.
