Friendly service and great value
I have been going to Cafe Amisha regularly with my other half and friends and always been impressed.
The food is very good (the Fiorentina pizza and gamberoni pasta are particularly impressive imo) and good value.
As has been mentioned in other reviews, the staff are really friendly and welcoming. Overall I'd say it's a great and much needed restaurant addition to Grange Road.
Worth a visit
you can park round the corner, staff friendly and the food is very real Italian
Pizzas and pasta and all good value. My only gripe is the useless wooden bench seating that fills most of the floor. If the few leather chairs to the left are all taken I don't go in.
Good Addition to the area
I went and tried Cafe Amisha last night and enjoyed it. Decent pizzas with generous toppings at similar prices to the numerous pizza chain restaurants.

Service was very friendly, but also very slow considering how busy the restaurant was... Hopefully that will improve with time - I'll def be back to find out.

Also be interested to try the smoothies for brekkie - much better priced than those at Cafe D'Aziz!

Give Cafe Amisha a try
Not only is the food fantastic but the staff is delightful. They talk to you and want to get to know the locals. The food is so fresh. The pizza is amazing and the salads and desserts do not dissapoint. They're new and still struggling to get their liquor license. They're also probably still gauging how many people will come (my guess for why there was a wait, not prepared for that many). But please please please give them a chance because they're one of the best things that have happened to our bit of SE1. We really do need them there. I've been there 3 times already. Super kid friendly as well.
Amisha Cafe
Popped in on Saturday afternoon with the family. The building looks great - interesting decor, very quirky. They are clearly only semi-operational and were training staff and stacking shelves. My wife had a salad which was very nice and I just had a coffee - which was excellent. Staff were very friendly - some nice touches like jugs of water and cups to help yourself. Menu looked good - pizzas about 7/8 pounds, a few salads and plates of anti-pasta. The service we had was fine.
Disappointed with Amisha
I have waited with much anticipation for the opening of the Amisha restaurant and was thrilled to go for dinner on Saturday night the 13th November. The restaurant is decorated in a stylish way and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed but it seems that is where the preparation for opening stopped. They do not have their alcohol license yet so everyone went next door to the corner shop to buy wine and beer. This wasn't too much of a problem however we had to make 2 trips to the shop since it took 1 hour for our three pizzas to be served! The bread sticks that were to hold us over were thin and burned and the flat bread was very oily. The pizza was nothing special. The service was appalling....we were neglected after the order was taken and were never offered dessert or coffee after our pizza and had to request the bill 3 times. Out of 10 I would give them a 5 rating. I was terribly disappointed and hope that the owner provides the wait staff with service training and they expand their capacity to manage timely food delivery especially if they expect to serve drinks as well in the future. I would suggest giving them a few months to work out the kinks before trying this restaurant. This place has great potential they just need to realise it!
Great pizza & service
Very nice delicious pizza - thin, crispy, plenty of topping & pretty large size. All ingredients & equipment Are quality & sourced from Italy including the flour for the dough, the extra virgin olive oil, the electric pizza oven, the curtains, & the Illy coffee, and it shows. Staff were very welcoming & friendly, especially the manager, Luciano, who loves kids so children are more than welcome. All in all, a most welcome addition to Bermondsey!
