The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10 to 15 years in one of its maximum security prisons, but the second best way is to taste its cuisine. Learn about India with today's Groupon to Ambiyan in Unionville. Choose between two options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dine-in Indian fare and drinks.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of carryout Indian fare and drinks.
Ambiyan lets diners pivot their palates off the beaten path, sampling a fragrant array of traditional and contemporary Indian fare. Both the in-house menu and carryout menu offer vibrant victuals to suit every variety of palate, unless that palate's favourite flavour is string theory. Start off your meal mélange with appetizers such as the vegetable samosas (dine-in $7; carryout $4.95), crispy golden pillows puffed up with potato and green pea stuffing. Like an ox-pulled rocket ship, dinner links old with new: try a traditional dish such as the butter chicken (dine-in $15; carryout $11.95), delicate poultry breast in a creamy tomato-infused sauce. Then, skip ahead to contemporary specialties such as seafood xacutti (dine-in $24; carryout $17.95), a net's worth of sea scallops, tiger prawns, and crab in a robust coconut curry. Hungry herbivores too will find much to masticate, such as the eggplant bharta, which dazzles palates with roasted eggplant floating on a zesty zephyr of green peas and ginger (dine-in $10; carryout $8.95).
Lounge on the patio during summer months and gild your gullet with a cold, golden Indian Kingfisher beer. The carryout option, meanwhile, lets diners eat wherever they please, making it possible to test theories about whether excellent roof reception makes food taste clearer as well.
- The restaurant is beautiful, inside and on the patio, the people are wonderful and the food is amazing! By far the best indian food I've had in Toronto – afleetalexgirl, Urbanspoon
- I try and take everybody here and more than a few previously uninterested people have been turned right on to Indian food as a result of a singular Ambiyan experience – emjaymj, TripAdvisor
