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 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!
