I heard a lot about Amaya restaurant before eating there so I was keen to see what it was all about, and as part of Luxury Week London, I reviewed this restaurant. First of all, in London when you mention the word Indian, we all scoot off to Brick Lane. But this time I scooted off in the Bentley to Knightsbridge instead. Amaya, situated in the heart of Belgravia, offers a unique contemporary gourmet Indian cuisine prepared in a dramatic show kitchen.
Signature Wines To Match The Food
Amaya is a Michelin starred restaurant that has a history of over twenty years to create what I must say has to be the most unique experience when it comes to Indian food. What’s more intriguing is they have also created their own signature wines to match the dishes. I mean how many of you have gone to an Indian restaurant and have no clue what beverage to match with your food? How many of us to be on the safe side order a beer? At Amaya, you don’t have to worry, they will base your drink on your meal. It makes a big difference. I was drinking wine with my Indian and loved it. Yes, I did say wine.
Pushing The Bounderies
The last person I thought would ever be managing such a place is a talented French lady. I knew already I was going to have an experience. I have to say this place is loud and you all know me, it is hard to be louder than me. I like this because you can enjoy the food without feeling uncomfortable about it. I could go on about all the taste buds that went into overdrive here. The food chosen for me just was a perfect balance including the wine to complement it. I just loved the small portions so my taste buds would taste something different each time. As you can expect from a Michelin star restaurant, the food is executed well and the presentation is just perfect.
Amaya is all about encouraging you to spend a good night out with high-end food. It is the perfect place to come along with friends and experience a real treat. In this video, listen to what we ate and our reactions for what was an experience of a life time.
