Amaya Bar & Grill
The food was very good. Had their cauliflower appetizer. excellent! Garlic Naan is very good, along with dipping sauces. the Lamb Rogan Josh was excellent. rich creamy sauce, tender lamb. The Saag Paneer was very good, but needed salt (first time I ever needed salt for this dish)and not the best I have had in Rochester. Overall, food was very good, and worth coming back for more. On wed. there is no charge for bringing your own bottle of wine.
Unfortunatly, we had a new waitress who was untrained, and was unprepared for her job. Hopefully this will not be the case when we return.

The service was a little odd: the waittress was very informal, the busboy was conspicuously stiff and self-conscious, and the manager was a little too effusive.

The food was very tasty. The rice, a usually bland side dish was perfectly cooked and quite aromatic. The house made curries were excellant.

Food was average quality. Menu has just been changed and not all of the old choices were offered.

Food was excellent. Presentation of food was also excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive. I hope this restaurant gets the business it deserves. There is a lunch time brunch that seems like a bargain and if it is any reflection of the food served tonight then I definitely would recommend it.

Our first Indian experience. The other couple had dined here previously. We did the price fixe menu and enjoyed all 10 courses. The chef came out and asked our curry preferences and tailored the meal accordingly.

Server was great. Food was not great and was overpriced. For example, $4 for a small cup of chai is absurd.

Love how Amaya cooks all food from scratch.

I've been here before but this time the experience was much different and not in a good way!

It offers Indian dishes not otherwise found in the Rochester area. They are very well prepared and presented and taste wonderful. Our server was one of the most pleasant we've ever met.

Best Indian food in Rochester!

Too expensive for what was offered.
Chicken not fresh.
None of the food was hot.
The dosa and several other foods tasted spoiled.

Interesting, contemporary Indian food. Wide selection.

our service was extremely slow, the restaurant did not seem very busy, yet it took a very long time for our food to arrive. my husbands dish tasted good, as did the appetizer, but my dish was served very cold, and when sent back it was delivered to me cold again. I then ordered another dish, but it was just ok. We were offered dessert on the house, but both pieces of pie tasted very bland, and looked even sad. The ice cream was very freezer burned and my husbands ice cream had a very bad taste to it. to make matters worse, the menu is on the pricier side, which would be fine if the food was up to that standard, but it was far from it.

We waited over 35 minutes to receive our meal. We frequent indian restaurants two or more tomes per month. They all put some sort of bread or thin crispy flatbread when being seated. They did not. Portions were extremely small.

I thought the food was good, but a bit expensive for the amount of food.

Great waitress, but food took a long time to be served. Overcooked mushy appetizer.

I love indian food and often went to the previous restaurant. I was able to try this due to coupon. Very nice experience.

Major improvement in concern for slowness in service. Servers were frequently informed us abou t when our food will be available. Appetizers are exellent. Still need to work on the consistency of entrees and biryani.

nice food, people, everything!

Service was excruciatingly slow. Portions were on the small side for the price. Order was filled incorrectly, but correct dish was then brought.
