    Now alright to begin with saying I typically tend not to review restos. Let me just say I'm a huge gourmet. Recently, on business I visited Amma in NYC. I'm orginally from California although have been to New York City a considerable number of occasions. My spouse and I absolutely adore the variation of places to eat. Good job on a enjoyable and enjoyable mealThe staff at the restaurant astonishingly great! The food was superb. The order came out very quickly. Regardless of that no true issues. Of the couple of appetizers -n- Two main courses we ordered, I probably would say 3 as superb & 1 as really decent All in all Brilliant food! We had a terrific evening! So refreshing with there being countless New York City places to eat that are unhealthy. Also was to experience a NYC establishment with out too much attitude. We definitely will be back soon.

    I keep telling myself I have to make Amma part of the regular dining rotation. It's a wonderful and authentic Indian restaurant. Went last night for restaurant week. The cost per person was just about $35. The meal started with a lovely apple salad. For the second course I had the crabcakes. Crispy and juicy without being greasy and complimented beautifully by Indian sauces. For my entree a delicious seafood dish complimented by cauliflower made in the Indo-Chinese style. Spicy and slightly sweet with some delicious basmati rice. And for dessert, kulfi with a perfectly balanced sweetness. This place is a steal even when it is not restaurant week. Their menu is quite reasonable and you can get a nice bottle of wine (great wine list) for about $40 bucks. And I must say that the service at Amma is never sub par. Expect to leave satisfied in every way.
