Upon entering Ambars for a late lunch, my wife and I were greeted, albeit a very cool greeting, and "pointed to" our booth seat. No "good afternoon", no "how are you two"...no nothing. A few minutes later our male waiter came, and possessed the same cool persona. No name introduction, no overview of fare, no smile, and a terse "good"... More

Getting sick of all the buffet style Indian joints with cold run of the mill Indian food. . Fortunately the food was up to standard with interesting choices excellent lassi Prices so reasonable you can afford to go whole hog and guzzle everything. a best pick for Cincinnati.

This is the third time I have eaten at this restaurant. It is never crowded and I have no idea why. The food is excellent and the service is even better. If you want some good Indian food this is a great place to go.

Always crowded. Tables close together but excellent food and service. Can't say enough about the quality of the food. Reasonably priced.

We came here after a long day of touring in Cincinnati. The place was empty because it was early dinner. We parked on the street across from the restaurant. We are a family of six ranging in ages. Everyone was happy with the food here.We started with the delicate flaky keema samosa. Then we had family style with the tikka... More

I have been at Ambar for both lunch and dinner. Both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices are yummy.

For at least 5 years 4 of us have been going to Ambar at least once every 2 months for an excellent lunch. The food is very good, the help very friendly, and the place is always crowded at lunch as a testament to it's quality. The very reasonable lunch menu has a great variety of entrees and different nans.... More

I was visiting here on business and I was going to meet a friend. She suggested coming here and said that she thought I would love it. I agreed but made sure that she knew that I did not like anything spicy, nor have I ever ate Indian in my life. It was not hard to find, but it is... More

We visited here yesterday largely due to my Daughter being vegetarian (with a vegan leaning) and she loves Indian cuisine. They have a nicely varied menu including a good selection of vegetarian dishes. Our waiter (unfortunately, I didn't get his name) was very knowledgeable and patiently answered our questions (mostly mine). Would definitely go here again when in that part... More

We went here for dinner after visiting the zoo as it was the nearest Indian restaurant. We ordered a vegetarian thali and aloo bathura. Aloo Bathura is something which I have never come across in any other Indian restaurants till date. It was tasty and different than the usual bathura. The items in thali were also very tasty. The waiter... More
