My husband and I have passed this restaurant for years. Stopped the other day and have found our new "go to" restaurant. The atmosphere is charming. Service is prompt, polite, and eager to please. They did! The food is wonderful! It doesn't taste prepackaged like PM Chang. The value for the food is amazing. ...what a treat!

There were no outstanding dishes or parts of our dining experience & there was nothing terribly wrong. We didn't try but two appetizers & three main dishes, so maybe we missed something big (one way or the other). The next time we want to eat Chinese food, this restaurant will not rise to the top but it won't fall of... More

Went to Ambassador with party of 4. We ordered the orange chicken, chicken and broccoli, and sesame chicken. The sesame chicken was really good but the orange chicken was so bland we were not sure if that is what we were served. I would not recommend. The chicken and broccoli was very bland also. However, the egg rolls were awesome.

The food is always a treat, and the service is very good. The owner is there and makes sure the diners have what they want for their meals.

Ambassador has been around forever. I first ate there in the 80's and loved it. We recently returned after a long absence and it was just as good as I remembered. The egg rolls and the mu-shu pork are particularly good. The restaurant is family owned and you get that sense when you walk in. Service is good and the... More

Picked up a big to-go order on Christmas Eve, and was not disappointed at all. There are some unique items on the menu, but even "traditional" dishes like fried rice and egg drop soup were outstanding. I can't wait to have it again.

Have gone here for many years and enjoy almost all the dishes. My favorite is the Happy Family lots of flavor with many vegetables and meat. We get an appetizer and share the meal, great value and great food have made this a Houston institution for decades.
