Ambar India Restaurant
350 Ludlow Ave., Clifton
“Ambar is hands down the best Indian restaurant in Cincinnati. I have tried many and always come back to Ambar. I've never had a saag mushroom at any Indian restaurant ever as delicious as Ambar's. The garlic naan is perfect and the chicken tikka masala is top notch. Servers are friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is intimate and quiet enough for casual conversation. Definitely recommend Ambar if you're looking for some great Indian cuisine.” -Colleen A.

By CityBeat Staff

Cancun Mexican
6385 Glenway Ave., Green Township (Western Bowl); 5034 Glencrossing Way, Westwood (Glenway Crossing); 5686 Harrison Ave., Dent
Cancun is one of the best large-menu, do-it-all Mexican joints in town. Maybe it’s hard for a restaurant to go wrong with the rich, spicy and bold flavors paired with a tangy refreshing margarita, but Cancun is definitely doing it right. After all, they’ve been successful enough to open nine area locations over the years, including the one attached to Western Bowl. The margaritas hit hard, so keep that in mind if you’re planning on bowling a few rounds after dinner.
