“Cracking Indian fine dining with-a-twist” is to be had at this “congenial” and moodily “cavernous” Belgravia fusion-venture (under the same ownership as Chutney Mary and Veeraswamy). The tapas-style dishes, prepared in an open kitchen over the grill, deliver “vibrant” and “fabulous flavours”, and rank amongst London’s very best. Overall, it’s “a bit expensive”, but a “super, super, super-lovely experience”.
“Treat yourself – you won’t be sorry!” This “dark and luxurious”, “fusion-Indian” has a “surprisingly different tapas-style approach that just works”. “Subtly-spiced”, “wonderfully fragrant” small dishes (many of them from the grill) are prepared in the open kitchen, providing “contemporary food at its best… if at Belgravia prices”. “Don’t let the staff cajole you into more dishes than you need!”.
“Amaya-zing!”. “Your taste-buds go pop with delightfully subtle tapas” capturing the “distinctive flavours of Indian grills” at this “chic” modern Belgravia operation, arranged around an open kitchen – perennially one of London’s top nouvelle Indians.
“As far from your local cuzza as Buckingham Palace is from a bedsit!” This stylish Belgravian – with “theatrical” open kitchen – provides tapas-style cuisine that, “even for London, is amazingly sophisticated”, and “with a superb variety of flavours”. Top Menu Tip – “amazing grilled meats”.
Amaya Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The “appetisers” are excellent, especially the goats cheese. We had the tasting menu and all the small plates were very good. By the end we had eaten enough so I’m not sure we’d do that again and the biriani was a bit plain by comparison with the rest ( maybe too full by then). Great spices, good service, eating as theatre."
