Ambar India Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Ambar specializes in reliable, Northern Indian fare, including savory tandoori specialties and curries as well as tasty naan. The chicken may be dry, but you can make up for it by enlisting the relish caddy that holds a hot green chutney in addition to a sweeter red version. We suggest eating family-style, which allows you to try almost everything. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and a take-out menu. If you've never tried Indian desserts, know the restaurant offers four choices full of interesting textures: a homemade cheese patty in sweet cream served cold with pistachios, a fried cheese ball soaked in honey syrup and served warm, rice pudding served cool with pistachios, or ice cream with a hint of nutty flavor and a touch of rosewater. With its white tablecloths, Ambar is the fanciest of Clifton's Indian spots, but it may be too noisy for a romantic date night. It does make for a convenient spot for dinner and a movie, though, as it's just doors down from an eclectic independent movie theater. At lunchtime, Ambar fills with college students and the business crowd for its specials and quick service.
