Quite an interesting mix of spices and ingredients. Our first, but certainly not our last visit to this unique if not somewhat hidden neighborhood jem.

Wonderful shared plates of lamb chops, flatbread, steak, bok choy all well prepared and flavorful. Somewhat noisy ambience but energetic with young and old couples and party groups. Enjoyed and will return.

Ambrosia was absolutely amazing! I celebrated my wife's birthday here and we absolutely loved it. I highly recommend it to anyone!

Great food for great prices. Somewhat eclectic combinations of ingredients and spices to achieve an interesting culinary experience. Definitely will go back. Also, good with honoring reservations. Room is a little noisy, but that's because there is so much great conversation going on!

First waiter was not very friendly and seem agitated when asking for recommendations. He got the first drink order wrong. When asked if there what was the other cocktail with coconut in it that he recommended earlier he proceeded to say there were no coconut cocktails, which the first wrong drink he brought out was a coconut cocktail. He kept disappearing into the restroom. He never came back to see how we were doing. Another waiter who was Asian came to help for the rest of the night. This restaurant need wait staff that has better customer service. If your wait staff does not want to be in the service industry then they shouldn't be there. It completely ruins the mood for everyone one making the likelihood to return is slim to none.

Delicious dishes you just can’t find anywhere else. Great service too. We just miss the curry fries!

I had such high hopes for this place. After spending over $200 on dinner I was so disappointed in the wait times on food. I ordered two appetizers and four meals for all four of us. I specifically requested that the appetizers be served first then all of the meals together after....
the appetizers were indeed served first but then one meal was served a couple of minutes after.... then another about 20 Minutes after.... then another about another 10 after and the last one (which was for my son) was served about 45 Minutes after the first one!!!! This was not meant to be family style..... all thebwaiter couldnsaybwas that he is new and he agrees that the wait time on many dishes were too long....

The place was a little hard to find, the address is listed wrong. The waiters are slow, but the food is worth the wait. Prices are good and lots of veg choices. Drinks are creative. Definitely worth the drive

We Loved our experience here! Food was absolutely wonderful from main course to desert. We made a reservation and they place a card on your table with your name on it a nice touch!! We were there early so it wasn’t crowded so noise level was good but I can see it could get a little loud since it’s one open room. Overall it was a great experience!
