Amber (this Waterloo St. original) is an all time Kolkata classic, offering arguably some of the best North Indian Tandoori food and kebabs in town. Their Prawn tandoori and Gosht Peshawari Barra kebabs are really yummy -- the prawns are super fresh with a firm...More

Amber is one of the oldest restaurant in Kolkata. Its one of the oldest in Town. Known for its delicious Indian food. This is among few places other than the 5 star restaurant who started serving Sizzler in Kolkata. Great service and ambiance.

When visiting the restaurant located upstairs, the first thing you will get to see is the 45 year old elevator which is controlled by levers; a friendly elevator operator is in attendance. Amber offers lots of tandoori and curry dishes including chicken, mutton and lamb....More

Pathetic Place, walk in and you will feel like you are in 1980s. Stinky Washrooms. Never visit the if you are a vegetarian. Nearly all dishes have strong smell of non veg. The portion sizes are unbelievable small. All staff r hungry for tips.

Located on Waterloo street this place serves excellent North West Frontier cuisine. Parking is a pain. But the experience is well worth the effort.

There were days when Amber used to be considered in top 10 places to eat in Kolkata, alongside now vanished joints like Skyroom. Today's Amber seems to be a diminished remnant of its glorious past. But the food was not bad, particularly the Mutton Roganjosh
