Set back from Enterprise Road, Amanzi is central and easy to get to. Winding paths from the car park to the building create an atmosphere of intrigue, while the mood lighting and ethnic decor contribute to its cosmopolitan feel. Very good food!

A delightful evening at the beautiful Amanzi - the place was packed - make sure to book ahead. Everything we had (mostly continental style) was very tasty indeed - first grade meats and excellent vegtables, plus a good wine list. Staff very nice indeed, catered to our every need and whim!

Dear Lordfinsbury Great that you enjoyed the quiz nite. It seems to be getting more and more popular. Please ask for a generous portion next time you are here and we will be happy to oblige. Sadly wine prices have gone up recently by 10% all round. This is because bank transfers for importers are dreadfully slow. Consequently they now... More

We ate here for a work function and had a large round table in a room set apart from one of the main rooms, which gave our party a sense of intimacy without being cut off from the restaurant. The house is lovely, with different rooms and spaces and a beautiful outdoor area. Though large, it has a homey feel.... More

I went for dinner with my husband. Setting is amazing, but sort of felt like a statistic, dont particularly remember service standing out.. food was a little pricey (or maybe its what I chose) and I didnt feel like I got 100% value for money.

Dear Mtnflyer Thanks for the review. The building is a 1940's house that was lived in by the owners and then converted. The water features were built by Alan Barbour. Our Sunday menu is an extract from our full a la carte menu that we hope you will sample in the future. Team Amanzi More
