Amber brings some of the theatricality of big name downtown Asian eateries to the Upper West Side, while offering similarly bold takes on Japanese and Thai cuisines. The space is divided into three sections; there’s a swanky cocktail lounge and sushi bar area up front, and a straightforward dining room in back. Exposed brick walls are painted with jumping horses, and a massive statue of Buddha on a bubbling fountain anchors the main room. Culinary offerings also make a big impact. Spicy Thai green curry features huge shrimp in a complex sauce dotted with eggplant, asparagus, lily roots, and mushrooms. In the Japanese department, standouts include the special sushi rolls like the Angry Lobster, which melds tempura-battered pieces of buttery meat with cooked rice, lettuce, avocado, and cucumber. The accompanying spicy mayonnaise dip is spot on.
