Amaya AYCE Royal Tasting Menu

Has anyone tried the AYCE Royal Tasting Menu at Amaya?

The Amaya Indian Room shows AYCE at $42 - $59 per person.

Bread Bar does not mention AYCE at $56 - $72 per person.

Even though Indian Room is closer, I have always preferred Bread Bar, but that is not a small price difference.

Anyone tried either?

1701 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, ON M4G 2C1, CA

Bread Bar
3305 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON M4N 2L8, CA

  1. What is an AYCE Tasting Menu? The two concepts seem polar opposites to me.

    1. I've had the "tasting menu" at Amaya a few times, and was surprised to see it is now advertised on their website as AYCE. I'm assuming that it now means that you can order repeats of the dishes that they bring you without any extra cost.

      The tasting menu is a good opportunity to sample the various dishes at Amaya - it's become boring for me though as the dishes haven't changed much. The website is pretty clear as to what is included in the tasting menu, and IIRC, they do ask if there are any allergies and preferences, and then adjust accordingly. Also, from what I can see, the difference in price has to do with wine pairings.

        Thanks CarNut, I was surprised by the AYCE aspect, but with 4 courses and that much food, maybe nobody ever asks for repeats?

        I called both locations to inquire about the difference and Bread Bar offers a few more dishes, but I don't think it justifies an extra $14 per person, so we are going to give the original location another try and do the tasting menu... usually we just have our tried and true favourite dishes, so this will definitely get us to try some things we haven't had before.

        And yes, the higher price option at both locations includes wine pairings, but again, Bread Bar is more than the original location.
