The perfume of fresh ginger and coriander wafts through Ambiance of India’s elegantly appointed dining room, twisting through intricately carved handmade furniture and bouncing off of lavish golden artwork. Championing a multi-sensory approach to the culinary arts, the restaurant replicates the luxurious atmosphere of a club in Mumbai through dark-wood decor and plush red carpets that work in concert with the kitchen’s authentic Indian dishes. A trio of clay tandoor ovens clustered in the middle of the dining room radiates their cozy heat and whiffs of the spice-laden victuals through the space. As diners’ admire the vibrantly hued figures depicted in the restaurant’s traditional paintings, chefs artfully chop, stir, and execute Risky Business slides across the floor in the kitchen as they craft traditional meals such as fresh-baked naan and spice-laden kebabs.
