Amber Restaurant Review

: Amber is modest and unpretentious with its bamboo d├ęcor and private back room affording an intimacy and coziness that suits the eclectic Pan-Asian offerings. An exhaustive menu demands the diner be adventurous. We suggest the creative makis like the "angry lobster" tempura roll with lettuce, avocado, cucumber and spicy lobster sauce. The Kumamoto oyster platter drizzled with a citrus dressing and golden tobiko is as refreshing as it is surprising. Affordably priced fish and steaks show their gastronomic edginess with dishes like Siamese crispy red snapper topped with pineapple sauce, or filet mignon encased in a black pepper sauce with fried sweet potatoes. Cocktails are part of the creative show with selections like ginger mojitos, green tea margaritas and lychee martinis.
