Was on the internet one day looking for somewhere interesting to go to dinner that was located close to Green Park tube station, as this is a convenient place to meet hubby after work. Anyway, came across a newish restaurant called Amba Bar & Grill which got rave reviews...so we went to check it out.

Amba is located in the lobby of the Mayfair Hotel, located just a block back from Piccadilly, a couple of minutes walk from the tube station. It doesn't look like the 'typical' hotel restaurant at all - it is very stylish & funky looking!

The large restaurant has great decor, and well separated smoking/non smoking sections. Service was particularly friendly and helpful. Food was quite good.

Favorite Dish: Alex started with some excellent scallops and then had the Loin of Pork, while I enjoyed a tasty and well cooked Ribeye Steak with delicious fat chips. For dessert we shared a Bread & Butter pudding.

The only complaint of the evening was that mixed drinks were too expensive.....almost £10pounds for a Gin & Tonic - ouch!

Address: Stratton Street, London W1A 2AN
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Nearest Tube: Green Park is less than 2 minutes walk

Located very close to Piccadilly
