I'm not sure if I ordered the wrong thing but I didn't like the food. I got Pad Thai which tasted horrible and chicken fried rice which wasn't good either. Honestly, the chicken in the fried rice was TASTELESS! It looked like it had been boiled and thrown in. I put a ton of soy sauce on it to make... More

This is the 2nd time I've been to Cafe Ambrosia. Both meals were very good - food was plentiful, service was excellent and price was affordable. The Ambrosia is a small cafe, located in a strip mall at the intersection of Smokey Hill & Piccadilly. They also do take-out and delivery. Recommend!

We went here about 6:00 pm on a Saturday night and were literally the only people in the restaurant when we arrived, which made us wonder! It is... More

When my wife gets her heart set on a particular Chinese restaurant I usually cringe because we have two very different ideas about what constitutes good Chinese food. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by Cafe Ambrosia. They make her happy with their non-spicy dishes, and they pass my test for the spicy stuff. We usually do carry-out. The... More
