Ambrosia India Bistro

565 Abrego St., Monterey, 641-0610 751 Cannery Row, Suite 121, 324-4852 ambrosiaib.com

“I just like this place” is something you hear – or overhear – again and again about Ambrosia. Is it the lovely garden seating, the endearing staff or the wide variety of tasty dishes spanning the Indian subcontinent? Who knows. But make a stop for lunch, try the famed buffet – by which we mean yes, try one of everything (when safety protocols again allow) – and see for yourself what it is that keeps this tucked-away Monterey spot a locals’ favorite. And raise a glass of your favorite cocktail – or choose from the extensive beer and wine list – to the many savory sauces.
