Visited Amaya with a friend for dinner on a Sunday night. The restaurant was fully booked and quietly humming with a diverse mix of guests, young and old. The red lighting, wooden floorboards and steaming open kitchen grills create a lovely, warm ambience. The dining experience was excellent and we will both definitely return. The vegetarian tasting menu had a good variety of dishes, most of them tending towards light, fresh or sweet flavours – more fusion than traditional. On the other hand the veg and lamb biryani, keema kaleji (stir fried lamb mince with kidney) and grilled chicken were alive with spices, true to original recipes and simply outstanding. The rose brulee and chickoo & prune pannacotta, both of which appear to be Amaya creations, brought the meal to a cooling, smooth and absolutely delightful end.
