Wonderful and popular local spot, busy even on a Thursday night. I mis-understood and thought spice level was 4 to 8. My bad, but I survived a 5. Great selection of naan. My friend's chicken was dreadfully dry- waitress gave a replacement that was wonderful....More

My family and I frequently dine at Ambar. It can be a pain fitting my big car in the small parking lot, but the food is worth any parking hassles. The samosas are always hot and crispy, the naan perfectly baked and the entrees are...More

Food was excellent- lunch specials are perfectly portioned and delicious. Service was good. I love their rice and their garlic naan was great- and not greasy. Give this place a try! Be sure to park in their parking lot and not next door.

After a movie at the Esquire down the street, I momentarily thought of trying something new but instead headed without question to Ambar. I have eaten here numerous times over the years and was glad they were still serving dinner at 9:30 on Saturday night....More

I can personally recommend the lamb saag and the garlic naan. Every time I've visited, I've had great food. Even in a congested part of Clifton, they have a small parking lot directly behind the restaurant, which is so convenient!

You can do better than this for Indian food in Cincinnati. The mutton curry tasted scorched, like it had been cooking for much too long a time, and the mango lassis were quite small, and cost $6.50 each. The rest was fine, but there's nothing...More

We love this place. We would go more often if it weren't a 40+ minute drive each way. We go for lunch. We love the chicken tikka, salad with raita, nan, and the kheer. We usually choose lunch here for our birthday meals. Nice staff....More
