Simply sumptuous

Combo meals are a great hit at the newly opened restaurant Ambrosia, near Y.M.C.A, Secunderabad.

TABLE TALK: Wholesome food at reasonable prices.

FOOD WITH a heavenly taste is what they claim they provide.

Let the judgment of taste be a relative one. But what can be best claimed about Ambrosia is that here is a place where one gets wholesome food at reasonable prices.

The latest addition to the already existing fleet of restaurants and eat-outs in the twin cities, Ambrosia, - near Y.M.C.A, Secunderabad - is a decent joint for a `hearty' luncheon or dinner with family and friends.

Spacious interiors sans opulence and an inviting ambience characterise the 40-seater restaurant.

One can try out the vegetarian or non-vegetarian combos, priced at Rs 29 and Rs 39 respectively. "These combo meals are different on different days and are in great demand," says restaurant manager Ajay Kumar.

A typical veg combo on Thursday could entitle one to a generous helping of jeera rice, carrot and beans poriyal, phulkas, mixed vegetable, curd rice, atukula payasam and fruit.

A non-vegetarian combo on Monday comprises chapatis, bagara rice, egg curry, chicken curry, rasam and pesarapappu payasam.

GASTRONOMIC GATEWAY: A decent joint for a hearty meal.

One can otherwise go for a vegetarian thali, which comes at Rs 32, or a non-vegetarian thali, which is priced at Rs 55. A mini-thali costs Rs 19 for veg and Rs 45 for non-veg.

Other speciality items of Ambrosia are kheema biryani, bocha fish curry, gutti vankaya, natukodi pulusu, talakaya mamsam (fish head curry), paaya-boti, et al.

Amongst speciality desserts are the different varieties of payasams, particularly the senaga bedala and semiyan payasam.

"The food is simple, affordable and sumptuous. More than anything else, I like the keema dosa and bobbatlu the best, " says Ravichandra R. Tonpe, a regular at Ambrosia. "I like the food because the quantity of spices and oil is relatively less here," seconds friend Sanjeevitha.

Going by the popularity of the restaurant, the management has decided to open outlets at Ameerpet and BHEL, informs manager Kumar.

"We are just 25-days old and business is brisk. I think it's in the taste that we score over others," he adds.

Check out the place and give marks to that.
