The San Francisco Bay area throngs with Indian restaurants, with a new one cropping up almost every month. While some have successfully cultivated a loyal customer base, a few have managed to consistently attract a sizeable Indian as well as non-Indian following. Amber India is one of these—not only because of its history as a pioneer in fine Indian dining, but also due to its distinctive and delectable cuisine. Consistently rated the Best Indian Restaurant in the Bay Area for the past seven years in the San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 Restaurants survey, this externally unassuming strip mall restaurant is a refreshing surprise once you enter. The ambience is rich and the food has a unique favor.
