We were here to celebrate a birthday, party of 9 people. The food was good, but very expensive. $26 for prawn coconut curry. Well, luckily that curry was very tasty. I still don’t know that it justifies such a high price though. Butter chicken $20. Dishes do not come with rice or naan. You must order separately, $5 per naan. I have eaten here twice before, and the prices have definitely increased significantly. Our bill came to $256 for 9 people. No alcoholic beverages, just 3 soft drinks.
All of the servers were chewing gum the entire time. I found that very off putting, especially when this is supposed to be a high end restaurant. Also, I don’t think our server smiled once. I’ve never really experienced friendly service during any of our visits.
The washrooms are very old and in need of a renovation, but this is the case with many of the restaurants on Main Street Unionville.
The food here is tasty. If the price wasn’t so high, we would definitely visit more often.

We went to Ambiyan to celebrate a family members birthday. We learned that Ambiyan is a restaurant with very tasty Indian food, but annoying and slow service! Also each dish was very over priced! Our waiter was constantly asking if we were ready to order, even though he knew our party was not complete! Also, he was so lazy, that when we asked him to take our food and put it in takeout boxes, he only wanted to take one trip, so he took our bowl of biryani and put it in the naan! So now we have squished naan for leftovers! Lastly, it is a very old venue! They really need to renovate it! Don’t let the pictures fool you!

We took overseas visitors there because in the past we enjoyed the food however, this time the service was terrible! We had to ask several times for napkins and other items. Our dish came luke warm and we finished it before our guests had received their order!
Our waiter was never around and couldn't care about looking after us!
I'll give it a 3 rating for the benefit of the doubt but if it happens again we will not be back.

We recently enjoyed a delicious dinner and very enjoyable evening on the patio of the Ambiyan Restaurant. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating and the service was excellent! We had a great night, thank you again, we will definitely be back!

We love the ambiance. We enjoyed our wedding anniversary meal here. The Korma was delicious and we had enough to take home for a late night snack! This is our new place to go for indian food.
