Ambassador Dining Room
Discover fine Indian fare at the Ambassador Dining Room. This upscale eatery, located in a stylish Roland Park apartment tower, features a beautiful outdoor patio, overlooking a verdant urban oasis. Ambassador Dining Room is a Baltimore favorite, beloved for its luxurious ambiance and white-glove service. The menu features a wealth of northern and southern Indian dishes, with a popular daily lunch buffet and a special Sunday brunch, featuring special combination plates and mimosas made with fresh-squeezed orange juice.
The menu includes classic fare, from freshly-made samosas, chicken and fish Tikka Masala to vegetarian staples like Channa Masala and Palak Paneer. Food at Ambassador Dining Room is incredibly fresh and flavorful, paired with homemade breads and steamed jasmine rice for the ultimate authentic taste. The restaurant has a full bar, offering classic cocktails, spirits and imported and domestic beers and wines.
Sadly, our meal and service wasn’t close to our past experiences under the new management. We waited 30 minutes before anyone came to our table. The food was mediocre and one entree had to be returned. They brought out our meals and tried to place on table without removing any of our dirty appetizer dishes. Very disappointing experience. Seemed overwhelmed and way under staffed. Empty tables and a line of waiting customers out the door. We hope they figure it out because it is a beautiful restaurant with a great reputation.
We left after waiting for our food for one hour and not getting anything. The food is heavily over-priced- each entree is served on a plate with a rice and a salad (good to know, not like other places where you get a big bowl of the entree and a bowl of rice.
The Ambassador Dining Room is usually a 10 but last night it was a 1.5. Not sure what’s going on but the main courses were barely edible. The shrimp dish we ordered at $28.95 were way overcooked hard and chewy. The chicken tiki masala was also overcooked hard and chewy. They brought us rice pudding and took a drink off the bill but the rice pudding was not good and left on the table after one taste. Spoke to a couple of gentlemen in the lobby after they finished their meal and they echoed our concerns. Use caution before dining here as something has changed for the worse and the prices are very unreasonable.
We have been patrons of The Ambassador over the years but have not been there since the change in ownership. We are now raving; the service and the food were exceptional; better than before! Highly recommended.
Love this place!!
