Ambassador of India

Zippy and I had dinner last night at the Ambassador of India restaurant in West Hartford. Pretty wonderful. Entree's were inexpensive and really wonderful ($8 to $13). The mulligatawny soup was a fabulous bowl of deliciousness (and a bargain at $2). We both opted for vegetarian, and the medium spice level was just right - flavorful and a small bite but not in any way painful. I had the Chana Pindi, Zippy had the Navrattan Korma, we loved 'em both. Zippy also had the Raita and approved....

It's BYOB, so bring a bottle of vino or a six pack of Kingfisher if you'd like. And do stop by - the night we went it was pretty quiet, and this place is too much of a gem in the otherwise trendy and pricey WH Center to permit it to fail. And if it catches on as it deserves, it will be hard to get a table, its a small and intimate spot.

Highly recommended!

I love Indian food but have yet to try out the Ambassador of India. Although the name sounds familiar, I've yet to have Indian in West Hartford. I have tried Masala on Main Street in Hartford - they were okay, not great. Have you been?

Not so far. Mostly we do the place down on Wethersfield (Kashmir), as well as Taste of India on South Main in WH.

Ambassador of India is a small chain; there are also stores in Glastonbury and Hartford. New Haven coming soon, apparently.
