We have not been going out because of CoVID and it was our anniversary and really wanted to go. This is one of our favorite places and they offer outdoor dining so we thought we would try. We were so thrilled to find it felt very safe and they took all precautions seriously. The food was amazing, the wait staff was top notch and the ambiance you can’t beat. I would definitely recommend this and I will be going back.

I took two friends who have never been to the Ambassador dining room despite living less than a mile away! I can assure you they will be back!
The outdoor space is beautiful and the food and service are both superb.

The food, atmosphere, covid-sensitivity and service were all good. I don’t recommend the shrimp adrak (ashrak?) but otherwise the food was delicious. We’d go back. It’s a very pretty place.

This is good solid Indian food. They have done a very good job of using their patio for outdoor dining with lots of space between tables. The patio itself is lovely and makes for a pleasing setting. We used to go there all the time for their Sunday brunch buffet but ... alas ... no more. Service is excellent.

I saw that the Ambassador was still having outside dining and so I jumped on the chance to visit one of my old favorites. The Ambassador is one of the most consistent, wonderful experiences of Baltimore dining. The food was amazing as always and even with a heavy downpour, the rain only made the experience more romantic.

Definitely the best setting for outdoor dining in Baltimore. Food is delicious, and service is great. I was disappointed they didn't have chai to go with my dessert, but they did just re-open! My friend and I had a wonderful time.

An Indian restaurant in a discreet apartment building with quality food from all regions of India . The whole fish was fried perfectly and sauces correctly . The shrimp were jumbo and wild .the NaN was delicious , with the right amount of char and crispness and the tandoor appetizers were spot on . Be brave and order it spicy as that’s how Indian food should be had . The outdoor dining was spacious and well appointed . Three cheers Ambassador . Keep it up . Baltimore needs you

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.
