About

It’s about the journey, not the destination. That’s why we took our name from the Amber Road trade route. It reflects everything that makes us special – from our eastern mediterranean roots, to our modern London spirit. It inspired us to channel the flavours of our travels abroad and our heritage into one dining experience. A space where stories exchange hands as freely as the wine flows. This is Amber. A place where all are welcome.

A great place for a casual dinner or lunch with partner or friends.
With a slightly different twist on food

The staff were all extremely pleasant and attentive without being too intrusive. Due to the restaurant being fairly empty, we had multiple members of staff with which to deal, though this just ensured speedy service rather than errors being made.

Whilst the menu choice was not the best, there were a sufficient number and type of dishes from which to choose, so that everyone in the group (4 of us) was happy with the options. The tapas portions were large enough that we all had a decent taste of each, and apart from the traditional Pide (which received no likes) the consensus was that the food was tasty

All in all we had a very enjoyable meal, which, with a cocktail each and two bottles of wine came to a very reasonable £225 (with service charge) .

Wow what a find. What a pleasant dining experience. The food was delicious all served with a smile. My Wife is generally Vegan and there were plenty of choices for her as well as loads for the meat eater.

Would definately eat here again when I'm next in the area.

We loved every single dish we had. Like "oh my god this is amazing" every single time.

We shared about 8 plates between 4 (very hungry) people.

The staff were really attentive and really interested to hear our honest feedback, especially about new dishes.

Favourites were the aubergine and the beetroot tartare!

I came here on Thursday for dinnner. I had the sourdough sweet as a starter. The lamb shoulder for main and a pear tart from the counter for dessert. The staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant has a nice ambience and a romantic vibe. This was my 6th visit!

Absolutely amazing!
The meat balls are INSANE! One of the best lunch meals I have ever had and would highly recommend. The salads were also divine. Decently priced!
The salmon served cold though not hot just to take into same consideration as I ordered thinking was hot.
Will be coming tomorrow for for dinner this time. Thank you!

Always delicious and nutritious! Staff are friendly and service is quick. I like that although I often order the same options, they are always slightly different so that I never get bored.

Went three times in three days (while on a work course): lunch was frittata with an aubergine and a brocolli salad, dinner was the best ceviche I have ever tasted, an asparagus side and sourdough, and breakfast was a heavenly concoction called Burnt Aubergine that was perfection. The flavours are unexpected and surprising but all in all, what an exciting find this was. My only "criticism" is that the friendly service can be slightly over-efficient sometimes i.e. a little break between courses can be appreciated. Overall, I cannot wait to go back!

Such friendly staff. The restaurant was full yet they happily accommodated an extra person at our table. The food was absolutely delicious and we were never hurried or ignored. So thrilled to find such a gem in E1.

Comparable to OttoLenghi, not quite as refined but also not quite as expensive and crowded. We liked it.

Portions were very small, there wasn't even enough bread for the hummus. Asked for more bread and they charged us for it. They were accommodating about us being vegan but there wasn't any info in the menus at all. Main course was tiny and tasteless, couldn't eat it. Ordered potatoes instead but they were under cooked and had way too much salt on them, hard to eat but had to because I was very hungry at this point. Couldn't eat all of the potatoes because as they put mayonnaise on some of them, had dairy in it even though they knew I was vegan. Dessert did not look or taste appetising. After 3 courses I was left very disappointed and still hungry.

Had early brunch with my family. Amber service was impeccable, and the dishes creative and excellent tasting. Much better than the standard breakfast buffet at upscale hotels. This was my 3rd visit to Amber in 6 months. Never disappointed. Only thing to watch out for is that the noise level can be on the high side when crowded.
