    Had a lovely lunch with my son and a friend. The food is amazing. They did bump my son a couple of times, although by mistake, I would expect them to be more careful around kids.

    We had our xmas dinner at Amaya and the experience was amazing - this is a superb restaurant with incredibly delicious food and staff with a high sense of attention to detail - totally recommended for a date night and special occasions if you are in the area.

    The food at Anaya is creative and high quality. Although the service was generally good the management seemed to believe that it's acceptable to serve food ordered by my vegetarian wife at a completely different time to the food for the meat eaters.

    One of our favourite London restaurants, we have been 5 or 6 times, both for lunch and dinner, and have always loved the experience. Delicious cocktails, especially the spicy ones, and exceptional food, the standard of which never seems to waver.

    I have One word for Amaya: Fantastic! The food was so good. Indian, but with innovative touches. Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent, sweet and attentive. The design is modern and very pretty. The atmosphere is fun. you can tell that everyone there is happy to be there. Wish they would open in NY!

    The experience was good but when you add the cost this place is definitely overvalued and overrated. The food was well prepared but nothing special as they advertise it. Service has to improve considerably.

    Always a good night when you go to Amaya! The food is excellent with the tasting menus being a really good way of experiencing the breadth of the menu (despite the lobster curry having been removed!). Service and ambience add to the overall enjoyment. Don't forget to book well in advance!

    The food was delicious - some of the best grilled meat/fish I've ever had! The sharing concept was great as it meant we could try a bunch of different things (and I'm glad we did!) I do love an open kitchen but the only downside is on a hot evening it was a tad too warm sitting near the grill (I should note it was the hottest day of the summer so far when we went, so unlikely to generally be an issue!) Service was good as well - will definitely be returning and have already recommended Amaya to a number of friends! :)

    Very disappointing overall experience for a restaurant that I was excited to go to. Very expensive overall - including paying extra just for naan. We went for the tasting menu which was set out with 4 courses that were timed to come out sequentially. They did not come out in that order - we waited a while then one dish showed up then 4 dishes all at once. When we asked our server to slow down the food, we were informed that this "ask" would mean that we would be in for a long wait until we saw another dish. No sommelier as well which seemed odd for a high end restaurant. Bottom line, not the value one would expect at a high end, special occasion restaurant.

    Reception area a bit small so we felt a bit squashed as we walked in with a large group. Good atmosphere as we walked in with the open kitchen/grill area - delicious smells but no feeling of smokiness even when we sat right next to the grill area. Attentive and friendly dedicated waiter throughout. The 2 of us tried the chef's gourmet meal with my boyfriend having the wine pairing (3 glasses: 2 whites 1 red - did go very well with the meal and for us was the perfect amount unlike previous experience with 8 course meals serving 8 glasses of wine where you are so tipsy at the end that you can't remember the taste of the food!). Came with 6 dishes and 2 different desserts to share. The 3 starters were good especially the seafood platter and the aromatic curry sauce they were served in - more of that delicious sauce to dip the naan in would have been perfect! Mandarin salad with goats cheese and red cabbage was also surprisingly in terms of flavour combination but worked very well. Main course was good... however the chicken Biryani came beautifully presented but we found it slightly lacking as the pastry on top was tasteless and dry - even the waiter told us to eat it with the yogurt due to the dryness. The rice and chicken was beautifully cooked though. Desserts included the chocolate dome where it melts and collapses as you pour hot chocolate sauce over it - have to say it tasted better than it looked after it ended up as a lump of molten chocolate mess in the bowl! Conclusion: good meal with lively ambience. Noisy/busy if you want to go for romantic meal but perfect with a group of friends. Bit pricey for what we had (under 250 pounds for 2) but bearing in mind the location and the service - might come again in the future!

    I took my partner to Amaya for lunch as a birthday surprise. I was so disappointed with the food. The only dish that really stood out was the sea bass. All of the other dishes were quite dry and nothing special. Service was really good. The prices were very expensive for what you got, and we left the restaurant still hungry!

    In a city where Indian restaurants are everywhere, Amaya is like the Louvre in Paris. Every dish is a work of art and created with the passion of an artist. The biryani with raita is a masterpiece. Save room for it because it comes last. This is truly an unforgettable gourmet experience.

    Short jaunt off of Knightsbridge brings you to a delightful, tasty break from the crowds and shopping. Great small plates of not- the-usual Indian cuisin. Open kitchen is fun to watch. Staff is attentive and knowledgable. Try the mirchi cocktail-sweet, spicy, delicious. Always our first stop when we visit London.
