Last time when were in London with the kids we had dinner at Amaya. We returned last night with our new NYC neighbors who happen to be in London this summer too. Excellent Indian food and excellent company. She is from here and he lived in London for 12 years, I believe that is the number.
We went a bit crazy ordering but well worth every bite. First thing out was black pepper chicken tandoori. Bite sized morsels of juicy chicken that comes with a variety of different dips (spicy and sweet) and rubs (spicy and sweet). A good kick off to the meal
Sesame coated grilled asparagus. Different, well prepared.
Large tandoori ocean prawns that were amazing. Perfectly cooked tons of flavor and a hint of spice.
Fish cakes although I believe they are called tiki. This was my least favorite thing we ate last night. Although crispy and well done, it just didn't rock my boat.
Broccoli that had been steamed with a yogurt sauce was really different and delicious.
Tandoori duck was awesome. Fell off the bone. So good. I'd go back for this alone.
Tandoori Naan. Quite crispy.
Lamb chops. Perfectly cooked with a nice spice to them.
This yogurt sauce had pomegranite seeds inside. I couldn't get enough. I was putting it on everything.
Roasted peppers stuffed with feta cheese and spices. Everyone was surprised at how good this was.
Chicken Biryani. At this point we all hit the wall but this too was delicious.
For dessert, pieces of grill mango.
Yes, we rolled home and yes I would go back again before we leave.
