We all enjoyed the meal! The flavours were more interesting than we usually find in Indian food. There were subtleties that aren't always there.
The service was good; pleasant, relaxed, unhurried.
A great experience!

Ambiyan Best Indian Food in Markham
I love Anbiyan. We went with a group of 10 this time, every dish was amazing, no one had a single complaint about any dish ... and we ordered A LOT of food! From the appetizers, chicken tikka, madras, butter chicken, seafood Xacutti, samosa's - thee most devine Naan bread I've ever had - EVER - the sauces, the QUALITY of the food. Tender large chicken breast. Honestly, for Indian food, this place is a sure bet. Amazing food, service and a great night.

We're fussy about Indian food, and this restaurant is the best we found in the GTA. Both food taste and especially the presentation are outstanding. We'll be back, and soon, and have already recommended it to others.

Best Indian Food
We discovered Ambiyan late last summer and have been repeat customers (several times over!) The service is friendly and professional and the food is delicious. Their welcome mango lassie is a treat and we always start our meal with their fantastic samosas. We've enjoyed their chana masala, chicken tikka masala, saag & vindaloo (the vindaloo is only for those who like hot spice), beef tenderloin masala, salmon, vegetarian and chicken biryani (and probably a dish or two I'm not mentioning). It's all been so good that sometimes it's hard to choose! We don't hesitate to recommend this spot to our friends and colleagues. A well run, nicely appointed restaurant that serves good food -- so glad it's part of our neighbourhood!

We were seated promptly and offered a complimentary shot glass of mango lassi. Our order was taken by the waiter and our appetizers and main course came out in a timely manner. The lamb kebob appetizer was amazing and cooked to perfection. The seafood xacutti was excellent and well worth the price. The main course was served in authentic indian dishes and cooked just right. I would highly recommend this quiet gem in the heart of main st. unionville.

Amazing gem in main street
This is a great indian restaurant in main street unionville. The food is exceptional and the service is top notch- one of the main reasons that has brought me to this restaurant 4 times already.

Good but could be even better
We went on a very busy Friday night. The service was excellent, but one of the dishes was very disappointing (Prawn curry). It was so overcooked that it was unacceptable, and it was expensive for the quality.
The rest of the dishes were fine, but dripping in butter, not healthy.

Great covered verandah!
Good good and service with a terrific location on Main Street. You feel like you are part of the "action" yet enjoy it from a distance as you partake in yummy authentic Indian food and fine international wines and spirits.

Great food and quality

Great Evening in Unionville
Unionville was hopping on a Thursday night and an Ambiyan veranda table was the perfect spot to people watch and hear the live music from the bandstand. And all the plates we selected were very good as was the service.

great indian food
The food was really good.. the tapas platter is great. Gives you a good variety of food. The curries were delicious and also the kulfi desert.

Best curry in town!
We have had the pleasure of dining at Ambiyan many times....We love the food which is consistently fabulous!

My party of 5 ordered a variety
My party of 5 ordered a variety of dishes to share. I have food allergies (nuts & shellfish) and our server was very attentive and confirmed with the chef that all was okay for me to enjoy (with the exception of a shrimp dish that was kept separate). We were on the patio to also enjoy the free concert at the Unionville Bandstand. It was a great night!

The food is very good, but the real value comes from dining on the patio overlooking the bandstand and bustle of Unionville's Main St. ... especially on a Saturday night. Relaxed place for a quiet dinner with friends and a lot of people watching.
They make an excellent (but diappointingly weak) sangria

Can't wait to go back!!
Last minute decision to meet up with friends in Unionville. Hadn't eaten at Ambiyan in a long time. Wasn't sure if it was still as good as I remembered.. Guess what it was even better. It was the first time trying this restaurants for my friends, they were impressed and said they "can't wait to go back!".
Given it was a busy, picture perfect Saturday evening on Main St., the Service and Food were excellent! Hostess and wait staff were friendly and prompt. Food was tasty and flavourful - good portions. The patio seating across from the band shell was the icing on the cake.

Ambiyan is located in the
Ambiyan is located in the heart of downtown Unionville, almost directly across the street from the open air bandstand. I was there for the first time on a second date.
This restaurant has a classic and vibrant ambiance, excellent, helpful and friendly staff and food that is well-prepared.
Ambiyan is a sit-down upscale Indian restaurant with moderate and affordable prices. Thus, anyone looking for a buffet style should not attend here. However, if you are a diner looking for authentic Indian cuisine and an outstanding dining experience, you will enjoy Ambiyan.

The food was excellent. Presentation of the food , Ambience, and the variety of foods along with the friendly atmosphere added to the perfect occassion with friends. I would recommend it for smaller gatherings rather than a larger groups where the taking care of the billing would be easier to work with rather than a larger group when not everyone has drinks or such.

Great ambiance and an excellent
Great ambiance and an excellent patio. Food is average. Appetizers were barely warm even though they were served quickly gave us the feeling that they were prepared en masse and sitting. Main courses were good. I liked both egg plant bhurtha and chicken vindaloo. Halibut was disappointing..
We enjoyed because of great patio.

Recommend sitting outside, nice Ambiance and band sometimes plays across the street. Owners and employees very nice. Generally a calm evening spent with good food. However, food could be a little hotter (temperature wise).

Delicious Indian cuisine
We had a lovely table on the patio watching the passers-by and pretty street scene. The food was way above-average - high quality ingredients, everything spicy and well-flavoured but not too spicy and very fresh-tasting. Delicious lamb saag and masala! Very attractively served and good service.
A great find in Unionville and worth a repeat visit.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am not an adventurous diner and Indian is outside my comfort zone. Staff was very helpful. I had a tandoori chicken in a hot sauce and it was terrific. My wife had a spinache purée with cheese that she loved. I will go back which is big for me

Gals Night Out
We had a faboulous time at Ambiyan last Friday. The Ambience was truly beautiful and the service was outstanding. The Food was good, however; would have liked a little more spice ( being Indian's we felt we could handle a bit more spice). Overall we were pleased and thank you Ambiyan for making our night out great!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We wnt with a group of 8. All food came out together and hot!!! (very important). Service was outstanding. Nothing was too much effort. I'm not a lover of Indian food but this was really amazing! If you live near Unionville, you have to gice it a try.

I had dinner there with a friend and the service and food were perfect!! The wait staff were very friendly and tentative, but not over bearing. Continuously refilling our waters was appreciated.

Had a lovely date night at Ambiyan. Busy Saturday night but wait staff were attentive. Great food but a little over priced for the quality. Will return.

Great spot for Romance
Other than being a little louder than I would have liked, (there was a table of 14 directly beside us and a loud group of four directly behind us) the food was delicious and the ambience was nice for a first date which is what I went there for.
The service was very good and the food was also better than we expected..

My girlfriend and I had an awesome experience dining at your restaurant! The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us really good recommendations.
