Call The Ambrette at Rye to make a booking on:
Invention and refinement are the hallmarks of the Anglo-Indian fare on offer at Dev Biswal’s second 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). Creative appetisers and pre-desserts are “absolutely wonderful”, while tasting menus (including a vegetarian version) broaden Ambrette’s appeal. Courteous, informed service gets top marks from readers, likewise the adorable setting within the panelled rooms of an ancient house on Rye’s picture-perfect High Street.
