Summary: A fine Indian tapas experience with grilled delights and a vibrant atmosphere.

Amaya, nestled in a posh area, is a culinary gem that treats patrons to a contemporary Indian dining experience with tapas-style dishes. The venue boasts a stylish and comfortable setting with plush interiors, including rosewood and red panels, terra cotta sculptures, and Italian leather chairs. Guests can watch the magic happen in the open-plan kitchen, where the tandoor, sigri, and tawa grilling methods are showcased. The menu is impressively varied, offering about 45 dishes that range from seafood and fish to game, lamb, poultry, and around 15 vegetarian options. The idea is to share these smaller portions, which include standout dishes like smoked chilli lamb chops, allowing diners to sample a wider variety of flavors. Friendly staff, a lively atmosphere, and the vibrant, original cooking make Amaya a memorable spot for those seeking a twist on traditional Indian cuisine. Additionally, the bar serves up terrific cocktails, complementing the exquisite meal. Amaya, part of the MW Eat group, continues to elevate the dining scene since its inception in 2004.
