Friendly and attentive staff and great flavours in each of the Indian dishes we tried. The restaurant was neat and tidy and provided a pleasant atmosphere.
Great service and fresh food delivered with a smile. Licenced and an ok selection to choose from. Good helpings of authentic Indian cuisine. Nice location and clean restaurant
The staff were friendly, the food was great. Excellent service, food and drink. Well worth the reasonable price – we will be coming back (again).
Lovely meal. Beautiful tastes of Indian. Very good Service. Definitely Recommended. Quandoo, you have not got an area on your site where you can change the number of people attending once booked.
Dined with two friends tonight and absolutely LOVED our meals! I didn't have an entrée but my friends chose to start with shared samosa - and they were the biggest samosas I have ever seen! Both agreed they were delicious. Our traditional curries were loaded with flavour and tender meat, and perfect for a cool winter night. We were all in agreement that Aamaya is a really lovely Indian restaurant. The service is excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Good wine list too. And an added bonus - if you park in the underground carpark you get 3 hours free parking - just get your ticket validated when you pay the bill.
Believe this should be 4.5 not a flat 4. Enjoyed a night with friends. Food I would rate at 5.5. We had the Lamb Korma, it was so delicious.... Service was a little sub par, the staff were very friendly and helpful, but need a little more training, and possibly an additional staff, and I think this is more the challenge, the poor girl was quite busy, and this led to leaning over people to pass out the food, and drinks. The lady also sometimes struggled with the Australian accent, which is part of the experience, but also led to inaccuracies in some of our orders. I would definitely go again, and armed with this information would allow me to be prepared to assist them more with our orders. We are not big on worrying about servers leaning past to provide your orders, but if you are, be prepared, and when we go again, I would in a nice way explain this to them...
Visiting Brisbane recently, we did a web search for an interesting restaurant not too far from our accommodation. We saw the Aaymaya website with its photos of the river foreshore, and they described themselves as a "river front" restaurant. Imagine our surprise when we eventually found the place set back one row of buildings in a mall with no riverfront view at all. Not impressed. However, having arrived there and being ready for some good Indian food, we stayed and were not disappointed with this. The food was very good and the service reasonably attentive. You should be aware that if you dine here expecting river views, you will be disappointed, but the food was very nice.
The food is southern Indian style and everything we've had there over five visits has been excellent. The wines are on par with other Brisbane restaurants (a little pricey for what they are). Service is friendly, attentive and the restaurant is nicely appointed with plenty of room at the table, and between tables. Sometimes people come in for takeaway dressed in tracksuit pants and mill around the counter. That's only a problem if your table is near the counter. Great restaurant. We are regulars.
The food was reasonably good but one of the dishes was not up to the mark. When I gave feedback the chef was happy to acknowledge that and offered to give a replacement. I said that we had already eaten and they were considerate enough to not charge us for the dish. Staff were good and courteous. Happy and would go back for another meal.
The food was delicious, fresh and clean tasting. We will eat here again. The reason I rated it a 4 is because the Service Staff - slow,, extremely inexperienced and they had trouble understanding our order. She just handed us the bottle of wine (to open ourselves). :-) The atmosphere is more like a cafe than a restaurant, It's still worth going to for a nice Indian meal though .
