Atlanta Journal-Constitution food editor Ligaya Figueras reviews Amara, the Indian fusion restaurant that recently opened in Inman Park. Figueras awards a “good” rating of one out of four stars and says the service shines, but some of the flavor combinations need work:
What did wow at Amara was its staff. The team on the floor is knowledgeable, accessible and happy to guide you toward what might best please your taste buds. I appreciate the forthright server who, when asked about a dish, could not recommend it because she hadn’t yet tasted it. However, she had many others to propose ... In the quest to update Indian fare, some dishes lacked the layers of flavor, the depth and complexity so intricately associated with Indian cookery. I hope Amara finds a way to better meld its different culinary impulses.
