  • “We order from Amma at least twice a week, and the food is consistently excellent. The delivery time is often a little slow, but it's always worth it. It's my favorite Indian place in the city”

  • “I am always happy with Amma food! Dum Aloo lunch special is my fave. Lunch specials are great value for $, enough for me for two meals. Other items though are expensive considering what you get (2 pieces of rasmalai for $6?!? 3 veg samosas for $6). Also order early because usually 1 hour for deliver or pick-up!”

  • “Tasty and fresh with clean flavors always puts us in a food coma (in a happy way) afterwards. The lunch boxes are a terrific deal. The Manchurian Garlic Cauliflower is fantastic and the Crispy Okra too! ”

    Dana

  • “The vegetarian dishes are very good as are most of the non-vegetarian ones and the breads. I found the Vindaloo, Laal Maas and Chicken Kolhapuri to be suspiciously similar and not authentic though still good. Delivery is generally timely.”

    Sam

  • “Previously I had written a bad review about the delivery service. But it seems they have really made an effort to be quicker on the time of delivery. The food is absolutely amazing. I am somewhat of an Indian/Pakistani food snob and this is hands down the best in Manhattan!”

    Sundeep

  • “Food is always great at Amma's. Customer service can do a little improvement 1) I had specifically requested to give me my order in two separate bags, a request no one read at Amma's. 2) Two other guests who came to pick up food after me were served before as I patiently waited.”

    Aditi

    1 reviews and 60 orders
  • “Chicken Tikka Masala was excellent but the chicken meat was a bit dry and not very tender. The side was not very impressed but this might be my personal preference issue. Compared with the size of rice and nann, the tikka masala volume was not enough. A lot of rice and nann could not be finished.”

    Shunji

    Nicholas
