Amba Restaurant At The May Fair Hotel

Monday night ended up in being a very pleasant surprise. My wife and I were kindly invited by the May Fair Hotel's top salesman Vivek T to sample the dishes from their unpretentious quality British & Continental food menu that consisted of premium seasonal ingredients. I had foie gras and smoked duck terraine with apple muscat jelly and toasted sour doughh bread for starters and the smoked cornish turbot with cockle and mussel broth,salsify and saffron poatato fonatnt for my main.... this was as delicious as it sounds as it melted so delicately in my mouth. The Mrs had Seared Scottish diver scallops with mustard mash and Cumbrian air-dried ham for starters and 16oz Grilled Dover Sole with parsley new potatoes, lemon and butternut sauce. We decided to push the boat out and share a banofie pie :-)
What a great culinary experience we had! Andrea our waiter was a most attentive. The Gavi de Gavi was chilled at to the right temperature and complimented our meal delightfully. Thank you Vivek and hope to see you over the Xmas period. Please do comment.....
