This is where it all began!
23 years ago, Vijay Bist opened his flagship restaurant, Amber India, in Mountain View, California. After years of studying and gaining first hand experience all over the world in the field of hospitality, he decided to act upon his immense passion for Indian Cuisine and the rest as they say is history.
Just seven weeks of opening Amber, it was acclaimed as the Best Indian Restaurant in the Bay Area by the Chronicle. It has continued to receive numerous accolades since then.
After 20 years of business at the flagship location, Amber moved across the road to a bigger stand alone location in Los Altos. It is now housed in a hacienda styled building and has a brightly lit dining room, a serene patio, a lavish banquet room, a modern lounge and a classy private room. The restaurant has a very relaxing ambiance and the decor is influenced by traditional Indian artwork.
Amber serves authentic North Indian food that explores Mughlai cuisine and also tries to replicate the flavors by using traditional cooking techniques like using the tandoor. Our menu has an extensive selection of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes and you can also enjoy an exceptional selection of traditional Indian drinks as well as cocktails, beers and fine wines.
It is because of Amber’s dedicated team that it has continued to maintain its originality and consistency of the rich flavors of the dishes and the hospitality shown that Amber is still considered as one of the best Indian restaurants in the Bay Area for over 20 years.
