Squaremeal Review of Amaya ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016A clever combination of flattering lighting and a genius design spec that brings the ‘theatre’ kitchen unobtrusively into the slinky dining room would be enough for most restaurants to make a fashionable leap into the limelight, but Amaya has its Michelin-starred food and brilliant service too. Readers confirm that this glamorous venue is up there with the Indian big boys thanks to spot-on cooking, “wonderful variety” and a menu that cherry-picks influences from across the subcontinent. Plenty of “superior” high-end ingredients are woven in too: foie gras gets the tandoori treatment, and lightly stir-fried lobster masala also features. Don’t miss the subtly spiced chicken tikkas, the tandoori ocean prawns or the sizzling specialities from the tawa hotplate and sigri grill (white sweet potatoes, wild venison, stonkingly good lamb chops fired with smoked chilli). Most dishes are designed for sharing and arrive from the open kitchen as and when they’re ready. A spice-friendly wine list matches the food in every department, but it would be a mistake to overlook the cocktails.

    Barrafina: Worth the wait | KOJO London :: Amaya

    Located in a quiet arcade off Motocomb street in Knightsbridge sits one of London&s three Indian restaurants awarded with a Michelin star.

    Joining me for dinner were two OHs ready for an evening feast, and once they arrived, we were quickly seated. The restaurant&s design didn&t really stand out to me though. I failed to get a feel of the restaurant&s concept just by observing the environment, which made for an ill-defined ambience. To be...

Karunesh Khanna

Karunesh Khanna is one of a tiny number of Indian chefs to have won a Michelin star. He has been working as head chef at Amaya since it opened in September 2004 & prior to that he held the position of executive chef at the Taj Holiday Village in Goa. However, much of his training was in London, at The Dorchester, The Four Seasons, The Ritz & Claridge's. When it opened, Amaya immediately shot to fame, winning our BMW Square Meal Award for Best New Restaurant Spring 2005 among other accolades. From the team behind Masala World, much-loved Chutney Mary & Veeraswamy, Awana's brand of Indian kebab cuisine is still rare in London, with its focus on three styles of grill.
