Now that I’ve given you a good view of the restaurant, let’s hop on to the topic which i enjoy writing about the most, food. As soon as I was seated on my table, the server asked if I would like to go by the menu or chef’s choice. So unlike always I decided to choose from the menu and then go with chef’s choice. I ordered their Indian Tandoori platter as I was told that it was their best selling items. This platter had Kasundi fish tikka, Chicken tikka, Afghani Chicken & Mutton seekh Kebab. It’ll be rather unfair to say that out of all this something in particular was my favorite but if I have to tell then it’ll be Kasundhi Fish Tikka. Such beautiful flavors and spices are used in this fish that I could keep eating it.

Next on the table was steamed fish cake, Chicken Dimsums, Spicy Hot Prawns, Chicken Shitake, Pizza Punjabi Kukkad, Tamarind Tofu Cups, Mushroom Galouti & Kesari Paneer. I would like to draw your attention to one unique thing that I had noticed while having the food and that is Ambrosia has its specialty laying in dishes that involves fish. You’ll definitely find their fish way tastier than any other meat dish, this doesn’t mean other dishes aren’t good but my personal favorite was fish.

I tried Dimsums too but they didn’t do the work for me. Although the filling was tasty and had perfect amount of filling but the outer covering was too thick and couldn’t support the filling. Kesari Paneer, is one dish I would recommend to everyone. Mushroom Galouti & Tamarind Tofu cups are again something to look forward to, both these dishes have a very unique presentation as well as taste. You’ll probably think that those cups are something spicy and filled with veggies but these one bite tofu cups are full of taste and they just disappear before you realize.

Chicken Meat Ball Peri Peri was quite refreshing a new on the taste palette for me. The meat balls were not too dry and hard to chew, which is the case at most places.

Ambrosia has some very different and interesting cocktails for everyone. I tried two kinds of cocktails, one from the menu and the other that was specially curated by the bar tender considering the fact that I was bored of normal cocktails. Love Birds & Betel Bliss are the cocktails I tried. What makes these cocktails interesting is the fact that while love birds is an amalgamation of sparkling wine, build up & raspberry syrup, refreshes your senses and gives you a sense of elite drinking, betel bliss works as a “Pan” in liquid form. Muddled, vodka, fresh betel leaf, rose petals, cardamon and club soda, all this is combined for your perfect Indian cocktail. FYI I’m not a pan fan nor can I stand it and still I finished this drink and loved it the most.

As I always say, I never miss out on the desserts and this time again I made it a point to try two of them. Sticky Toffee pudding with Toffee Sauce and Carrot & Walnut cake with philadelphia frosting. Did you read too much toffee somewhere? The toffee pudding was overtly sweet and too much toffee made it so. Maybe a salted caramel topping could do away with the sweetness. The carrot cake neutralized the sweetness and it was exactly how a carrot cake is supposed to be.

This place is worth every penny and being in the heart of the city makes it even more worthwhile!
