2 for 1 at Ambal's Restaurant

Indian cuisine has never looked so good, and with a diverse assortment of curries, platters and specials available there’s never been a better time to visit Ambal’s Restaurant. Situated close to Aberdeen's Union Square Shopping Centre, locals and visitors alike don’t need to go far to find exemplary food and service.

Food that is fit for a king awaits diners in Aberdeen who fancy a good Indian, although they may be shocked to see the startling variety of Indian cuisine, including dishes not commonly associated with India. Such delights include the Ambal’s Restaurant specials Nalli Nihari, a succulent lamb shank sourced from Scotland and cooked in caramelised onions, and the Thengapal Duck, a seared duck breast marinated with Ambal’s own spices.

Curry aficionados will fall in love with Ambal’s expertly seasoned main courses that include familiar favourites like the Rogan Josh, Chicken Jhalfriezi and Vegetable Biryani, but the surprises aren’t just limited to specials. Intriguing options like the Lamb Chettinad, cooked with red chilli, ginger and garlic paste, and the Nizami Gosht Biryani, made with saffron, bone marrow curry and served in a sealed pot, are sure to reward those curious enough to sample them.

Meat-free diners can rest assured that their choices are just as plentiful with wonders both old and new gracing plates, such as the Masala Dosa, crispy pancakes filled with potato masala and paired with chutney and sambar, the Veg Koftha, mouth-watering minced vegetables and mashed potatoes with Lucknowi sauce, and the North Indian delicacy the Gobi Mutter, fresh cauliflower gently cooked with green peas, herbs and spices.

Richly decorated and resembling an emperors own dining hall Ambal’s Restaurant is draped in regal purple and houses dark wooden chairs and tables, creating an atmosphere of royal dining.

    New restaurant and heard a few good reviews so booked with our discount prior. We were allowed to choose our own seat which was nice. Service was great. A friendly guy explained the menu and got us drinks. My partner and i both had starters which were presented on black slate. Lovely. Nice to actually taste proper poppadoms and not the usual tasteless ones you normally get. My partner then had a biriyani which was authentically cooked and served in one pot. I chose the Jalfrezi. We got to choose how hot we wanted it too. Served with naan which was perfect for 2 to share. Altogether a nice experience. "
