Best Indian Restaurant

Ambassador Dining Room

3811 Canterbury Road, (410) 366-1484,

Posted 9/18/2002

Our Indian-food consumption usually consists of carry-out and lunch buffets--of which this town has plentiful choices--so when we're munching on tandoori chicken we're usually either shoeless on the couch or rushing to make a 2 p.m. meeting. Hardly the state of mind to savor the food's varieties and textures. The Ambassador's our choice when we want to jar our association of daal with the quick and the cheap. It's a little more expensive than other Indian restaurants (but not by a lot) and its Tudor-style hall setting is elegant and uplifting. But we usually ask for a seat on the patio, a literal oasis in Baltimore's outdoor-dining-starved scene. We're spoiled by the service and we rave at how beautiful Indian food looks when it's not in Styrofoam and tinfoil. And it's outfitted by the owners of Banjara, the source of many a couch-bound meal, so while pampered and satisfied, we ultimately feel at home.
