I'm not normally someone who would choose to eat at an Indian restaurant, but The Ambrette was in an altogether different league. It's an 'Indian inspired' restaurant, and while Indian 'street food' is on the menu, so are sausages, belly pork, chicken etc. all with an Indian twist. The food was beautifully presented with excellent service. The exterior of the... More

I had read nice reviews and liked the website, and I was not disappointed! The very professional staff were friendly and helpful. I have some dietary requirements which can sometimes make eating out a bit of a hassle, but it was easy and smooth here, and the staff were well informed so I felt at ease and confident the whole...

Thank you! What a gorgeous meal. We had a great evening and the popping candy sorbet was out of this world. Beautiful south Indian inspired food using local Kentish produce in a really imaginative way.

This is not your usual Indian! It has a very limited menu of dishes. In between each course we were given an amuse bouche which was nice. eg soup, sorbet and the food was good. Worth giving it a try.

I was invited for lunch today and wondered what an Indian restaurant would do with a Sunday roast...??? Well it was easy, make it fabulous! The lunchtime choice was extensive so plenty to choose from starters and main course alike, I chose the haloumi salad then sea bass but the others chose traditional, we were given an appetiser with our...

We've had a holiday home in Broadstairs for 10 years and kept meaning to try this restaurant. We love Indian food but this is something special. The little tasters between courses were wonderful and every single course was excellent. The ambience is authentic and the service charming. Thoroughly recommended.
