Square Meal Review of The Ambrette at Rye ?

Refinement is the hallmark of the Anglo-Indian fare on offer at Dev Biswal’s second Indian restaurant, and – like the Margate original – the food at this Sussex offshoot remains a world away from most similar Asian renditions. The kitchen deploys seasonal British ingredients and pitch-perfect spicing to distinctive effect, whether it’s local sardine fillets with carom seeds and ginger, char-grilled Godmersham pigeon, belly ribs of Sussex pork flavoured with fennel and sesame seeds or a version of ‘haleem’ (slow-cooked minced beef and organic cracked wheat infused with rose petals, cloves and cumin). Full marks, too, for the creative appetisers and pre-desserts. Tasting menus (from £35) and a full roster for vegetarians also broaden Ambrette’s appeal, and the setting is lovely: drinking and dining take place in the panelled rooms of an ancient house on Rye’s picture-perfect High Street.

    The Hedonist :: The Ambrette (Rye)- Review

    Dev Biswal is the chef/patron of two prize-winning Indian restaurants situated on either side of the East Sussex/Kent borders both rather handily called The Ambrette. The Margate version came first but on a rainy winter’s lunchtime we had been invited to the historic White Vine House in the main street in Rye to review the newest addition to the family. Dev’s mission is to combine the best of British ingredients with contemporary Indian food trends to create a new take on the Anglo-Indian food tradition...
