"Refined" Northern Indian cooking with "wonderful spices" turns up at this "popular" mini-chain that’s touted for its "best-bet lunch buffet" and "out-of-this-world butter chicken" ; some report it’s "a little pricey" , but compensations include generally "solid service" , "modern" decor and "easy" atmospherics.

Best Indian food that I've ever had! I cant even say order this or order that, because its all delicious. Order everything! Eat Indian food for a week! The restaurant is sleek and modern, very clean, and extremely upscale. You wont want to underdress. Bar is fancy... great cocktails and high end liquor selection. All of the staff are quick and knowledgeable, but its all about the food. The subtle complexities in the flavor are unbelievable. How do they do that?

It was a pathetic experience with the guy (couldn't get his name, but he has a beard) who received us. We were a team of 12 and he initially made us sit in a couple of small round tables which were hardly sufficient for us. When we requested to check for any alternate table, this guy was very rude.. and he was like "this is the only table available, all others are taken!!" We understand that, but the least he could do is to say this patiently. Very poor customer service! Somehow we had to continue for namesake due to time constraint, even when the entire team was pissed off.. this restaurant screwed up the entire lunch experience

I've always liked this little cluster of restaurants in the Yerba Buena area because it seems a bit more serene from the hustle of market street and is quite nice overall. I stopped in after work with a friend as we both heard great reviews of Amber. As it is an Indian restaurant, the strong Indian spice smell immediately wafted in your face. The restaurant had nice decor and was a bit dimly lit so it would make for a great date spot. My friend and I started off with an order of the naan. It was quite good as isn't wasn't too oily and was a good accompaniment to the sauces in our entrees. We got a curry lamb dish and a curry chicken dish which were both excellent. The portions were really generous too as we had leftovers to go. Other than a lingering smell on our clothes after the dinner, the overall food and experience were great.
