I had a reservation for730 and when I arrived the host told me I would have to wait. He did seat us in about 10 minutes. I wanted outside because that is great in summer. The grass could have been weeded and cut,it was a little unruly.We had the eggplant appy and that was good. I had the grilled shrimp... More

Bland. Bland. Bland. Service was hell. Whoever says that this is the best Indian food in baltimore has not been to any other Indian restaurant in the city or the surrounding areas. Room and area is nice but for gods sake please don't judge this book by its cover. Overpriced pretentious wanna be Indian cuisine. We watched another guest get... More

The last time I was here was nine years ago and I couldn't wait to go back! The Ambassador has a wonderful atmosphere and even better food. It is located in the back of an apartment building and we were seated close to the wonderful toasty fireplace. The food is delicious and the service is absolutely wonderful. This is the... More

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner at the Ambassador Dining Room last week. It was recommended by our hotel (the Colonnade Inn Doubletree, a block or two away), so we walked over to take a look at the menu. The restaurant is set in the back of an apartment building with old world charm -- an unusual location... More

Second time to the Ambassador, love the ambiance. It is particularly appealing when the doors open to the outside. Obviously, in March that typically is not possible. As to the food, honestly, I really wanted to like it, and I did to a degree. However, there is a sameness to the offerings. I looked at everyone's plate, and they all... More

I love this restaurant! I dine there whenever I want a special treat or just need a lift. The Indian food is superb, and the service is excellent. What I love the most, however, is the environment. It is elegant yet extremely comfortable and peaceful. In the winter, two fireplaces provide mesmerizing light and warmth; and holiday lights and evergreens... More

We return here every year. Set on the Johns Hopkins campus in a vintage residential hotel, this Indian restaurant sits in the back of the hotel in what seems to be the original stables area. The food is authentic, well-prepared and, which is rare for this cuisine, not overly salted. Breads are hot and fresh. Service is attentive and speedy.... More

If you are in the mood for an Indian buffet with self serve bar, elegant atmosphere, and friendly service, this is SO worth a try! Reasonable price $25 including alcohol. Less for no booze. Parking on street but we has no problem at meter. Would be great for a special occasion, either a group or just for two!

I love this place. Very old worldy and quiet, with comfortable tables spaced well apart. I had a fancy chicken tandoori dish as well as an avocado and roasted corn salad. Everything was great. Extremely good service, about as good as it could possibly be.

This south asian restaurant is in the dining room of a beautiful apartment building. The main dining room is beautiful with its fixtures that are from the original dining area of 50 years ago when the restaurant was a stodgy American establishment for the apartment's elderly and quite comfortable inhabitants. Today it is a wonderful Indian restaurant with a tilt... More
