Two great chicken dishes, India style with decent wine and very friendly staff. Comfy, clean and not too noisy.

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
