The Brussel Sprouts are THE best! Tapas Tuesday is a great time to try the menu and house wine at very reasonable prices.
When I had to change the number of diners on my reservation at the last minute, the staff was very accommodating and seated me at the bar.
Service is always very friendly and efficient.

Wow, the food was amazing. We each ordered something to share, and a couple extra things besides, and we all left very happy. On the way home we asked each other, 'what was your favorite dish?' - Mine was the thai tempura shrimp roll. The flavors!!

This was our first time dining at Ambli. We had heard good things from several friends and we were not disappointed! Very happy to have this great option in the neighborhood...We will definitely be going back for more.

My girlfriend and I wanted to try something new and saw Ambli's great reviews so we made reservations. Our server was very helpful and accommodating. The food was super fresh, delicious and fun. The restaurant was quiet and inviting and the kitchen is open so you can see the chefs buzzing around. The old fashioned was on point as well. I think my girl and I were the youngest guests by at least 20 years, which I didn't expect, but it made for a quiet and polite dinner. I'll go back for sure!

Very good for a romantic date. Service was friendly & efficient. Food choices were interesting, exotic, & tasted excellent. Portions are ok in size, a bit on small side, but again, quite flavorful.
Beer is priced just fine. Wines are good and their higher price reflects the quality.

This was our first time at this restaurant. Great food and excellent service. I had the veggie plater. The blend of Indian and East African spices worked very well and did not overpower the dish. Service was very good, prompt but not hovering. Great find. I will definitely return.

I took my parents to Ambli for their last night in town after a large family event. The staff was courteous and attentive, even making special recommendations for my mom's allergies. Everything was clean, comfortable, and well-timed.
The menu was well-developed too! While the chef is from Mexico City, the food is mainly focused on Indian and (some) African specialties, with a hispanic influence for more local ingredients (for example, jalapenos are used for a non-traditional, but welcome, riff on a classic chili-infused sauce). The rice and meat were both tender and substantial, while vegetables withstood cooking without appearing worse for wear.
The atmosphere, the service, and the food provided a great experience. It is very likely that I will be back.

Thai was my second time at Ambls. Enjoyed it so much I brought friends the second time. The tapas are unusual and very tasty. Still haven't had a main meal yet but the Ambli's salad and the flatbread were great. We will be going back. Service was friendly. Doesn't look like much from outside but inside is charming

Went to Ambli for the first time on Tuesday night and was not disappointed. Turns out Tuesday nights are 'Tapas Tuesday' and they have great deals on not only Tapas but bottles of wine! The Tapas were exceptional and particularly enjoyed the Lobster Shooters - breaded lobster in a shooter of excellent coconut curry sauce. For dinner we had the Wasabi Fish and Chips (excellent) and the Kuka Paka (tender chicken in a curry sauce) - both of which were fantastic. For dessert we finished with a Blueberry Flan which was so unique and delicious.
Besides the food being great the service was even better! From first walking into the restaurant to having appetizers to our meal, every encounter with the staff was fantastic. Very friendly, helpful and happy we were there.
We certainly look forward to our next visit to Ambli!

We always love to go to Amble. I hate to tell you just how wonderful tapas night is. The last time we went there were three of us. We each made a selection and then a fourth selection for the middle of the table. This is gobs of food and it is fun to eat from small plates and get to experience many tastes. We especially liked the calamari and bruschetta.

This is the 5th or 6th time that we have brought friends to Ambli! We love it here and so has everyone that we've introduced to it. The atmosphere is wonderful, the service is always friendly and efficient and the food is consistently amazing!

What a find! Reviewers are right: this is a great hidden gem.
Recommendations by the wait staff were spot on. Cocktails were excellent. Wine list could get a little more exciting, especially pairings with complex spices in the menu, but that is a very minor quibble. We will be recommending this to anyone visiting Denver.

The first time my wife & I went to Ambli's it was amazing. Great energy and we were warmly greeted by one of the owners. We arrived early and wanted to hang out at the bar but there was no space. One of the owners took us to the bar and made a space for us to chill while we waited. Things got better from then on. We received excellent service & attention to detail. We got to meet both owners and they both seemed genuinely interested in who we were and what we were hoping for in our dining experience. We left very impressed and were looking forward to bring our friends when they came to visit from New Mexico.
Last week we took our friends to Ambli and we were incredibly disappointed. The greeter seemed uninterested. We got a great table below the bar but it took forever to get our server . When he arrived once again he seemed uninterested, a couple of times he didn't even stop, he just walked by slowly looking at us? We ordered cocktails and that took longer than expected. We had to flag our server down again to place our order. Our entrees took forever to arrive but they were worth the wait...almost.
Bottom line, we may go back ourselves but we don't feel comfortable taking friends with and we would probably ask to be served by someone more into their job.

Hidden joint in a nondescript mall, but don't let the appearance fool you. Lovely mix of dishes, paired with a good wine selection and good service. As for value - the Sunday $35 Dinner special for two was a steal! Excellent place for a bigger group of people who are more on the adventurous side. I am not sure it would suit many fussy eaters/kids, but see the menu and decide for yourself.
While all dishes were excellent, two things I observed: The fish in the coconut curry was slightly overdone for my taste, and the beef tenderloin naan tostadas were by far the star of our meal - high praise given the rest were no slouches.

The food and service were amazing. Our family had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the delicious food. We ordered several of the tapas and main dishes and shared them, which is really what their menu is designed for. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be going again!

This was our first time at Ambli, and we can't wait to go back! Everything was delicious!! Definitely don't miss the garlic shrimp or lobster shooter tapas. I had the Mexican brisket, and my husband had the Kuku Paka chicken, both of which were delicious. Our server was great, the ambiance is really fun, and the owner/manager was amazing. Definitely a little hidden gem!

Since I discovered this restaurant one month ago, I have returned 3 times. The food is light, but tasty, the presentation is elegant and the wait staff is gracious. The diversity of flavors makes you feel that you've traveled abroad.

Green Curry Mahi was luscious and my companion's Chicken Tika Masala was, as she said, the best she had ever eaten! Service was quite attentive for a casual spot, friendly, not formulaic. Moving our time up a bit was not a problem.
