My wife and I ate here over the TG holiday and were very happy with our dining experience. We both ordered the tasting meal which was excellent and very filling (so take your time) The food was very tasty and the service was very attentive. The restaurant is small and I would make reservations.

This restaurant was recommended by the Palace Hotel and the recommendation was extremely well placed. The service was informative and copious. We had a variety of dishes and one was better than the next

I nice little Indian restaurant to visit. Straightforward menu supported by fantastic service. Couple of different, genuine Indian beers to try here too...Taj Mahal and Flying Horse - lovely. Is expensive however, but this is New York! 18% service charge as standard built into your bill. Overall would recommend.

We've been to Amma 3 times over the past year and I have to say the place offers the best and most original Indian food anywhere. The dining room is warm and cozy, with a pinkish color scheme more like a French restaurant (It can feel a bit cramped though when full). The service staff is very attentive. The distinctive...

$12.95 for the traditional northern Indian lunch. Good value, freshly prepared foods, but not exactly quick meal. I'll be back though. Lamb Korma was great, Nan were maybe the best ever.

Best Tiki Masala (Butter Chicken) I've ever had. Friendly staff, felt very comfortable dining alone. Food was fantastic - authentic but upscale. Small restaurant so a little warm but worth it!

Looked for a good Indian restaurant for a special family dinner while visiting NYC. Chose Amma as it is highly rated all through. Food was good (though not superb in our view) and service was neat. The place is however small and crowded and not having any notable design or atmosphere. Bottom line- nothing bad to say about the food... More

Wanted to try Amma due to the many positive reviews . Went there for lunch this past week. I did find the restaurant a little difficult to find. It is on the second level of a brownstone . Wait staff greeted me warmly and I was seated immediately. Restaurant is not large and the majority of the tables were filled.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
