My boyfriend and I visited Ambience on the recommendation of friends. We had the hot and cold meze to start, which was amazing, followed by the mixed grill, which was exceptional. The meats were cooked well and were obviously of a good standard - tender and flavoursome.

Once we finished our meal, we moved through to the bar for a couple of cocktails - it was a hot Saturday and the glass front was open which made for a really great atmosphere in general.

The food and service was brilliant - and the cocktail menu was even better.

We would recommend this restaurant to anyone - great food, great service and great value!

Remarkable restaurant, very near Wimbledon station. The service was amazing, run by a very nice family. They really go that extra mile, had my sons birthday there small group of us around 8 and everybody said that it was the best Turkish meal they have had in London. The lamb kofte and Lamb shish is the best.

We got a takeaway from them 3 days after and it was EXACTLY same meal we had in the restaurant delivered to our door by a very friendly driver.

Highly recommend this place over the other 'typical' Turkish restaurants in the area, Ambience has a true family feel to it and it shows in the service you get.

I never write reviews, this is my first on Trip advisor, I just had to register and write one to recommend this terrific restaurant to you all!!

We decided to finally visit this restaurant last week - the only reason why we hadn't made the effort before is that it's based on Leopold Road and therefore a little further away from our house than Wimbledon village and it's not a direct bus route; so it's either a bit of a walk or a taxi ride. But certainly well worth the effort! The staff are very welcoming, the food is excellent and very reasonably priced and likewise the cocktails! Try the top shelf margaritas - very strong and for £6.25, very reasonable. We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned last night. You also get a loyalty card so the more visits you make entitles you to deserts, cocktails and meals. Definitely a very good find in Wimbledon and children made very welcome late into the evening which is good to see.

Had a lovely time with a group of 20, we found the set menu to be great value for money and very filling. Selection of varied mezes which were nice, and mains were tasty too. Staff were really accommodating, flexible to our needs. Meat is halal which was important to us, not a huge restaurant but great place overall.
