If you want to step up your Indian restaurant experience, this is the place for you. Cuisine is inventive and well-prepared. Interior is sumptuous, good bar. Great central location.

So glad we read through the reviews so that we knew to order rice as it does not come with rice. This was the best Indian food we have ever had but also the most expensive. Triple what we have paid in other cities. After being in San Fransisco though the bill did not surprise us. We ordered the mango... More

We had a wonderful meal at Amber restaurant. Our hotel concierge (Marriott Marquis) told us about the back entrance that was steps away from the restaurant! This was helpful as it was raining. The food was delicious. We were a little early so had drinks in the bar area. It was nice and informal. For the main meal, we sat... More

The food is very good. We had the four chili sea bass, butter chicken, saag paneer, and naan. Portions are quite small. The food is very light. Not greasy. Very good flavor. The price is 25-35 per dish. I don't mind paying that at all but it's not as creative or fresh as some of the newer places. I'd rather... More

We stopped at Amber at lunch and were happy to see that they had a buffet. We only have on Indian restaurant where we live, and Amber gave us the opportunity to try a number of dishes that we have never had. The staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was elegant yet casual. I enjoyed the large amount of... More

By far, this was the best Indian cuisine that I have ever had. Just a minute from the Marriott Marquis back entrance. Service was great. We were able to get seated easily although it looks as though reservations were preferred.

I had the Awadhi lamb korma and it was excellent. The lamb was delicious. We also shared garlic naan. One of my friends had the lobster curry and said it was awesome. Make sure to order rice if you want it!

We were by no means the only people at Amber, yet the noise was quite reasonable.The cooking is a mix of Northern and Southern Indian styles. We particularly enjoyed the Spinach Chaat, the Lamb Curry, and the Naan. Service was excellent.

Food was good. Line for buffet extended into bathroom corridor for the entire lunch hour and beyond!? 10 or more minute wait to reach the buffet. no one offered to provide a drink other than water. Proprietor was rude about buffet line blocking stairs so he could pack more people into the restaurant... Will not return.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
