“Love Indian Authenticity ”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful meal Sunday night at Ambrosia's. When other places in town were sparsely attended, Ambrosia's was full. The authentic entrees, sauces, and bread are full of flavor. Portions are healthy and the staff are happy to send you home with a take home box or two. I can't wait to return for another taste of India.

“Best curry we have ever had!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

4 of us ate here last week while travelling from UK. Having tasted many curries in the uk we all reckoned it was the best we had ever eaten. It all tasted fresh,authentic and different from the average curry. Good service.

“Big menu, big flavors”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Ambrosia features a wide menu of regional Indian dishes - if our experience is any guide it pulls it off well. We ate Goan fish curry - ginger dominates this dish from western India - and chicken Chettinad - a peppery dish from southern India - and both came up to our expectations. Add a very good smoky Bayngan Burtha and we were well satisfied. They have a good wine list, including several local wines, and a good beer list too, with a few drafts.

“The best Indian in town”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

not bad for a US Indian restaurant. A reasonable wine list exists. We enjoyed the Tandoori dishes but never have had a curry.
