I've been to Amber a few times this time I had the crispy duck for my entrée, and we all shared some appetizers. All good choices. We had good service. Fairly reasonable prices, and a good casual atmosphere.

Took the staff for a holiday lunch. This is our go to Asian fusion place on the Upper West Side. Food is great, it won't break the bank, service is quick and good. If you're in the mood for quality Asian fusion. Go here. I recommend the green curry for lunch. Quote tasty

They have seating in the front that is more intimate setting and even more space in the back with a green house glass ceiling . The staff always remembers exactly... More

I went to dinner here with friends and set in their small rear garden which I recommend weather permitting if open. I had the fish special it was very good. All in all an enjoyable dinner with friends.

So I was curious about what's (t)here now, and tried a few things this evening. I'm stuck on recalling my mentor's comment about being good at "eclectic" (lots of... More

My husband had Pad Thai and I had coconut green curry with shrimp . It was very tasty with just the right amount of heat. We had it delivered and they were prompt and courteous!
