Amber India, Yerba Buena (SF)

I just had a delicious buffet lunch ($$) at the Mountain View location of Amber India and learned that there's a new branch of the restaurant at Yerba Buena.

Has anyone tried the buffet lunch there? If so, would you recommend it? I heard it was $20, -- quite a bit more than the MV location, which is already priced higher than most Indian buffets (but totally worth it, in my opinion).

Let me know what you think. Thank you.

  1. I have not eaten there after seeing the prices, but at $20, it would be half the price of eating there for lunch a la carte.

      The lunch menu's not online, but looking at the prices on the dinner menu, ordering a la carte would not necessarily cost anywhere near $40.

        It would with tax, tip, and a drink. The lunch entrees are all close to $20, and do not comprise a complete meal.

    2. If you are near upper Clement India Clay Oven was $8.95 and here is an enthusiastic review.

      1. Ate there over the weekend - the buffet was excellent. Roughly 18 dishes, 5 desserts, naan delivered fresh to the table, and a chef making pani puri and another chaat to order.

        While old standards are there (tandoori chicken, butter chicken, etc.) there was a good variety of interesting dishes like Amritsari catfish and a really excellent paneer dish.

        Highly recommend it if you can enjoy the food without worrying about the price.
