Awesome local Asian cuisine restaurant. They only use fresh ingredients which mean the menu is flexible. Fantastic use of local and fresh ingredients and especially vegetables. The staff is very friendly and service is spot on. Prefect for lunch dinner or take-out. Our favorite local...restaurant.More

We used to live down here and basically had Cafe Ambrosia on speed dial because it is our favorite! We moved up north so we have missed it so much! We visited family tonight and were able to have it again, SO GOOD! Please move...up north near Firestone so we can finally have good Chinese food again!:)More

We enjoy lunch here often. The Pad Thai is great! Other of our favorites are Sesame Chicken and Wor Won Ton soup. Awesome.

This was the most disappointing meal I’ve had in a long time! Should have guessed when for dinner they only had one other table. But we sat down and ordered anyway. First thing was the water in our glass had particles floating around in it!...I brought it to their attention and after much pushback from management, got another glass. Or was it the same one back? As it had stuff floating in it as well! We decided to leave and go home and eat where we know the water is good. They packed our food up to go. When we got home we found out that the soup had not made it into the bag. I called right away and she told me to drive back over if I wanted my soup. We did go back and get it but there was really no need to have done so. The food was terrible and we ended up throwing it all away!!! This restaurant is terrible. Permanently off our list.More

This is my favorite place for Chinese food. The service is always fast and friendly. Portions are incredibly large for the price. Every time we eat there, they are very accommodating to make substitutions or omit ingredients we don't particularly like. I love their chicken...lo mein, egg drop soup, sesame chicken, fried rice and crab wontons (they don't skimp on the filling like some places). Dinner is aways followed by a freshly sliced orange and fortune cookies, which I think is a nice touch. Also, whenever I order delivery I always get a free egg roll. This family knows how to treat their customers and goes above & beyond.More

Stopped in for carryout. The amount of food was good. Had Generals chicken; the meat was dry and more coating than meat. Egg drop soup was ok as was the eggroll.

I stopped in for an early Sunday dinner while running errands. Although there were only two occupied tables (very clean but no alcohol), this place does a robust take-out business. The service was very polite and attentive, the dishes were well timed (everything didn't show...up at once, and the next dish was delivered shortly after I finished its predecessor). However, the real reason to come here is the food. A wide variety of classic Chinese dishes, spanning spicy to mild, well-seasoned and very tasty. I will definitely return with the family!!More

We've been going there for several years since our most favorite Asian restaurant closed up years ago. They recently changed some key staff and, sadly, no longer served delicately carved oranges when they bring the check. An absolute favorite if our granddaughter, pretty and tasty....My personal favorite, and an always order, is the pepper beef. Perfectly cooked thin beef strips in a very tasty saucepan! The rest of the family swears by the sesame chicken.More

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 it edible. The wontons were good. The egg rolls were decent. I was really disappointed because I read all the prior reviews. I have been trying to find a good Chinese food restaurant by me and still haven't found one that is consistently good.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!More

Fried rice snob here. I will admit to it. I grew up with east coast Chinese. I like my fried rice a certain way. This is the part that's hard to find in my area. I love pork fried rice. I grew up with it,...it's what I am used to. How I am used to it is this....Roasted Pork...the red kind not where it looks like someone cut up a pork chop and threw it in. Onions...lots of them, both yellow and green, bamboo shoots and peas and carrots. Yes, I know there is supposed to be egg, but I am allergic so I leave that out. This is what to my glorious surprise Cafe Ambrosia gave me. With the addition of just a touch of white pepper at the end. An extremely generous plastic tray of it piled so high it sticks to the lid, not the traditional oyster pail. I was overjoyed to find this place. I will go out of my way 8 months of the year to get there because the other 4 I am at a tax office close by. I have had saplings of their other dishes when friends order them, but that is what I go for when I go. I have done both eat in and carry out so both are consistent on portion and taste.More

My wife and I ate here for the first time this weekend. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall at Smokey Hill and Piccadilly, so parking is not an issue. 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 not a very large place, around 7 booths and about the same number of tables and chairs. It was nice and clean with a pleasant décor. Numerous people came in to pick up orders while we dined and about the time we got our bill 3 other groups came in, so it was never busy at all. We were told to just pick any table as we went in and a waitress came over immediately to take our drink orders and bring us menus - tons of choices. We decided to have some spring rolls as an appetizer and they came out in minutes - they were very good. We ordered sweet and sour chicken, beef & broccoli, and bbq pork fried rice and the food was out in less than 5 minutes - hot and lots of it! All of the food was excellent and we literally took half of it home. Just one of the main dishes would have been plenty with the rice that came with it. When we were done the waitress boxed up all the leftovers at the table and brought a half orange that had been sectioned, along with 2 fortune cookies, with the bill. All of the food was about $30 which I thought was very reasonable for all we got. The service here was excellent, which I guess we would expect when we were the only customers, the food was very tasty, plentiful and very reasonably priced, and the restaurant itself was very nice inside - though it looks very drab from the outside. This place does take out (looks like a lot!) and they also offer free delivery within 5 miles I think it is. We will definitely be using this place again - highly recommended!More
