We have eaten here twice now. The atmosphere is quaint. The owner walks around and chats with you. The servers are very friendly. The food is delish!

I have reviewed many places but realized I have neglected to review one of my favorite places to talk and eat, this humble Chinese restaurant. A good friend introduced me to Ambassador a few years ago. We periodically meet there to discuss architecture, art, philosophy, and life in general. He has been a regular for 30 years and got me...

Ambassador has been in business in my neighborhood for many years. The food is great, prices reasonable and the service supreme! The owner even stops by to check on you. I highly recommend this place. Everything I have eaten here is great and they have terrific lunch specials!

Friendly neighborhood Chinese restaurant. Good-sized portions that can be shared and very reasonable prices . Wish they had spring rolls and more non-fried appetizers. The assorted appetizer plate is almost all fried. . The lettuce cups, BBQ ribs and soups are excellent. Entrees are all good, depending on your taste

I was in the mood for good Chinese food, gathered the family and headed to Ambassador - my Mom's favorite place. We usually go midweek, but this was a Saturday and it was full. We did manage to get seated right away. The owner always spoils my Mom. We started with the crisp egg rolls with the Chinese beer -... More

Ambassador has been in this location for more than 30 years. While other restaurants come and go, this one keeps serving consistently good meals to loyal customers. Owner operated and personal, even many of the sauces on the condiments platter are made in house. Wendy treats her customers like old friends. If you dine late, you may be there when... More

You'd never know it from the outside looking in, but this place is absolutely fantastic! Ate here during a business trip because my boss recommended it. He wasn't kidding. This is the best Chinese food I have had in Texas and I've lived here 32 years and been all over the state. The wonton soup is wonderful. The wontons themselves... More

I have been eating here since about 1975 and honestly for Americanized Chinese food have never been disappointed. We enjoyed the large shrimp egg rolls, the chicken lettuce wrap, and my husband enjoyed his sweet and sour shrimp. Hot and sour soup is very good. Remembered after we ordered that the house special salad with its spicy peanut sauce is... More
