Who knew, that nestled in the back streets of Belgravia, a Michelin Starred Indian restaurant existed? I for one didn't. Indian cuisine is something i have a real passion for and to find yet another, just on my doorstep - i got a little excited. Amaya opened its doors in 2004 and quickly gained its first Michelin star in 2006. Its kept hold of it ever since. From my dining experiences Michelin star Indian restaurants have always been mixed experiences. Generally they are of very good value, both in terms of portion size, and cost. Service is always a little brisk, and erratic while decor tends to vary. Amaya apparently...

Located in Knightsbridge, Amaya is a Michelin starred Indian restaurant by the same people as Veeraswamy, Chutney Mary and Masala Zone. After a recent incredible meal at Indian restaurant Gymkhana, I was really excited to see what Amaya had to offer...

“I am sorry, you are not allowed to take pictures,” the Eastern European waitress kindly pointed out while I was about to snap the first course to arrive at our table.I wonder why really, it’s not that the plates look all that special and it’s the best way to piss a well-behaved (I don’t use flash, take my pictures with my iPhone and am also otherwise a good and discreet customer) food blogger off. I honestly don’t understand what’s wrong with taking a photo of the plate of food you have paid for – it doesn’t hurt anyone (apart from your dinner companion maybe who has to hold out until you found the right...

I have a confession.I don't enjoy eating Indian. I KNOW! I know. Living in the UK and all. The problem seems to be two-fold: one, poppadoms with all their dipping sauce glory are the highlight which means I've always peaked way too soon, and two, the after effects. People talk about KFC or fish and chips leaving that "ugh...so wish I hadn't done that" feeling post-pigout, but for me that's a guaranteed post-Indian effect.So imagine my delight at Amaya - no post dining regret, and a brilliant meal to boot...

The open grill at Amaya is tantalising to watch, an unrestricted arena where unexpected tastes blend with traditional Indian cooking methods of tandoor, sigri and tawa. A range of sea and land dwelling creatures are basted in homespun marinades and seared on charcoal flames, hotter than the fiery pits of Hades. This passion is whispered throughout the plush opulence of Amaya where dusky mahogany meets warm rosewood, and crystals hang like polished stalactites in this sultry Aladdin’s cave.The menu is arranged in three main sections according to how long the dishes take to arrive, and are brought out as soon...

Swankier than swank. This places looks gorgeous. It’s not over done or over powering, in fact the decor is just perfect. The first thing that hits you is the amount of natural light filling the space, from sky lights to an entire side wall made of glass. This makes the restaurant very atmospheric and allows it to look so drastically different in the day and the evening. Reflecting this there are two main spaces: the centre of the restaurant has a lighter feel to it as there are lots of chic mirrors bouncing of the aqua greens and sky blues; the later section is more oriental and composed of dark reds, dim...
