    The restaurant is in the lovely neighborhood of Homewood; it is not well marked, but once you find it you will enjoy the beautiful architecture of the building. We were taken right to our table on the patio. The weather was perfect for dining outside. They have open air seating and seating that is covered but open to enjoy air and the feeling of being outside. Our service was attentive but not overbearing. The appetizers came out very quickly. We waited some time for main courses, but we were happy to relax and enjoy a bottle of wine and some incredible naan in the meantime. The naan was served piping hot and was perfectly cooked. We ordered garlic naan and rosemary naan, which was my favorite! Our meals were delicious, there were six of us so we were able to sample a variety of items from tue menu. Each dish I tried was better than the previous; an endless spread of goodness. The kitchen prepared each meal according to our preferred level of heat. The most popular at our table was the Paneer Tikka Masala, each of soaking up that sauce with our naan. We celebrated a birthday and the staff brought out a lovely special dessert for our birthday girl. It was such a lovely night out with friends and family, I would highly recommend for anyone looking to enjoy some excellent Indian cuisine in a perfectly relaxed yet fine dining experience. We will be back.

    The Ambassador never disappoints, and our recent visit was better than ever, as we were seated outside on their lovely patio on a pleasant June Saturday night. The food was as tasty as ever; the rosemary naan (a special) was a nice compliment to our meal. The service was friendly, well-timed and intuitive but not overly attentive. Overall a delightful evening!

    The food was not good at all, the service was so poor. They just dropped the food in front of me. We paid almost $400 for 6 people and I regret every penny of that.

    We have been to the ambassador before and loved it. This is why my husband chose ito go there for his birthday. The food was outstanding, as usual. Our table was outside overlooking the gardens. The view was peaceful, serene and beautiful. The two people who waited on us were attentive, friendly and excellent. They brought my husband a dessert for his birthday and to top it off, gave him a gift card towards another visit. They went above and beyond. Absolutely wonderful restaurant.

    The food was mediocre. Years ago it had been really good. Ambience used to be extraordinary. If the apartment building didn’t maintain a garden it would have been bare. Not a potted plant. Very disappointing. Service was good, but it didn’t make up for the food and surroundings.

    Mother's day was very loud and crowded with a party there that was popping balloons. Service was very slow and it was very hot. $25 for Tikka masala is over priced. Quality has gone down with new owners.

    Mother’s Day: after seated, you were informed there was a max of an hour. The style was buffet so very rushed. Bring cash or as they inform you upon reviewing the bill there is a 3.5% surcharge for using a credit card. Both should be communicated when making a reservation. Not exactly the experience one expects for fine dining. I did write them directly and received no response but it’s only been 2 days. The food was fine but my least favorite for ambassador. I’ve been going for decades so my expectations were set based on previous experiences. I want them to do well and hope my feedback helps.

    Had the best experience dining at the Ambassador for Mother's Day. Everything they do it top notch and the food is exceptional. Fine dining at it's best, and also family friendly. It is my favorite spot and where I take every out of town guest, especially my friends who are Indian. Highly reccomend, even though it seems to be a locals who know secret spot.

    They are now charging a 3.5% fee on top of the bill if you use a credit card. I'm pretty sure this is illegal and if visa and MasterCard find out they could revoke their ability 2 accept their cards. Even if it is legal for them to charge the additional 3.5% it's completely rude to take advantage your customers in this manner. That is why restaurants and stores don't do it.

    Was offended by the way the manager grabbed one of the servers as she screamed "don't touch me". Appetizers were terrible, entrees were descent. We were rushed even though the place was empty. Not even close to being worth the money. I will never go here again and will worn everyone I know to avoid this place.

    This is an attractive restaurant and the service is good; but the prices are high for Indian food that is not especially original or exceptional, and the choices are limited, much more limited than in many other Indian restaurants.

    The Ambassador is great! We've been to the restaurant many times over the years and decided to book a spot for my dad's birthday. They reserved half of the main dining room for us, were easy going, attentive, and the food was great (as always). I highly recommend The Ambassador for events or even a casual shoes weekday lunch.
