The first couple times I ordered from here the food was mediocre at best, but since then, it seems to have gotten better. ( I am guessing they got a new chef.) Though they are a couple notches lower than Dumesh when it comes to quality an overall taste, their delivery is much more reliable and... read more

Been going to Amol on Ludlow for over 15 years and could always rely on consistently great Indian cuisine. Very authentic and traditionally spiced that takes one back to the tastes and smells of India. However, on my last visit (week of Dec 23, 2015) I was very disappointed. Two items in particular: 1. The overall spice levels were definitely... More

My favorite Indian Food in Cincinnati! You will not be disappointed. Yeah the building isn't brand new but that doesn't mean the food is bad at all means. The Buffet is a great way to try everything from Salads, Soups and Desserts. Great Food!

The problem is, as we were leaving, I needed to use the restroom. I can honestly say, I have NEVER seen a restroom at a restaurant as smelly and disgusting as the one at this place. It absolutely wreaked of urine from people peeing on the walls, the floor and all over the fixtures. I can't begin to imagine the... More

I found a giant cockroach in the lunch buffet at Amol. I also ordered delivery from them and the delivery man did not have my phone number so the food was late and cold....he then called me a stupid f*** b***. Only go here if you like insects and/or misogynists!

I have eaten at Amol, and all of the neighboring Indian places, for a few years. I have found the food quality at Amol to be just as good as the others, and all are delicious. My freind who ate with me this week also remarked that he was very happy with his meal. We had Chicken Saag & Chicken... More

I love Indian food, and I usually eat Indian food 3 to 4 time a week. The Amol is a nice place, friendly staff, But the food is just average

I have been to MANY indian restaurants, and this restaurant is on the top of the "BAD" list. The food is bad, the service is bad, it is dirty and just not good. The waiter had an attitude every time we went there (about 5 times), the food is very average, so there is really nothing good about the place.

The food is decent tasting but the service is well below average. For a better overall experience, visit Ambar India next door to Amol. Ambar offers better tasting food and more service at the same price. The only downside to Ambar is that it does not offer a buffet.
