We came at 7:30 and were seated promptly. Good food and service. Friendly staff. Only downside was that the sea bass special fish dish was a little over priced (though very good according to my wife!).

Nice location in Aberdeen with a good first floor view. Food was an interesting mix of south and North Indian. I ordered the Kofta. It had a coconut flavor, which was different and unexpected. Definitely worth a visit.

The name Ambal means mother goddess and it's the middle name of three beautiful ladies in the owner's life his mom, daughter and grand mother. Ambal's restaurant provide the finest quality of authentic Indian food in Aberdeen. We have a team of professionals who never compromise in quality. Our chefs are from the prestigious Taj group of hotels in India with more than twenty years of professional experience. Customer service and fine quality of food is the secret of our success. We make sure each and every customer has a fine dining experience. Please do not expect the food to be served in ten minutes, every single item is freshly prepared on order. We take all our meat, Indian vegetables and spices from Fairdeal foods the largest supplier in Aberdeen for Halal meat. We take our fish from our local fish monger Blue flag Aberdeen. Fresh Scottish vegetables and fruits from Sims Aberdeen. Our menu is not a typical massive menu that you find in other Indian restaurants.
