Great patio and good food
Great food. Clean setting. Food confess slow.
The quality is good, but the execution was a notch below. Fish pakoras were over done and the aloo gobi was lacking flavour.
Visited the new Toronto location for dinner a few days ago. GREAT food, superb service! A wonderful addition to the St. Clair & Yonge neighborhood!
As a former employee and lifelong Ambyian fan, nothing can compare to the edible artwork that is served here. Authentic Indian cuisine is an understatement. Above all else the staff are what makes this place so special! Thank you for all the countless delicious meals and I can’t wait to get back and dig in! More...
Great food. The menu is quite lengthy, describing each food. The portions were quite big. Nice place to go on Main Street. Service can be improved. No one came to check on us the whole entire time. And the restaurant was not super packed. There was a staff clearing dishes away, she was actually very helpful...but not our waiter. Oh well, cant have it all. I'll still prob go back. Lots of families with little kids. It's a kid friendly place. More...
Wait can be long but man is it worth it. Food is the best!!
Been coming here for years and the food is always amazing!
Good Indian food
Best restaurant ever visited. Staff was good and friendly . Our host Nitin was excellent and friendly. We enjoyed a lot.
I went to ambiyan had butter chicken it was the amazing dish I had, and the server was very good especially nitin.
Good butter chicken
Great service and good food with authentic spice.
Great atmosphere, amazing Patio... And the food is consistently great!
Great Indian cuisine. A little bit on the expensive side in my opinion but overall good was good with great service from out waiter
Bravo- very tasty food. Just require too much waiting time , but it worth it!
Good atmosphere and the service is always good. Possibly the best curries in the area. I particularly like the chicken tikka masala. In the summer the front patio is good for watching the Main street of Unionville. I have been going there for years, no complaints. More...
Delicious meals! Takeout and dine in available. Dining area has both indoor and outdoor areas. Located in historic Unionville with wonderful views of the bandstand and historic Unionville churches. Thursday nights have live music at the bandstand More...
Great Indian cuisine and great customer service.
This has long been my favorite Indian place. Granted, some nights (when things are busy) they seem to get a little discombobulated and more impersonal... but if you happen in here on a slower night when they can give you more special attention, it's well worth it and the friendly nature of the staff truly shines. Main Street can be an insane experience when it's busy. I actually worked at the Starbucks here in the late 90s, so I know how hectic things can be. There's no time to think or breathe when people keep coming and coming and coming. I don't judge the staff at any establishment in Unionville too harshly as a result, as long as you tick all the boxes of reasonable customer service. I can't speak for the pub food they offer at Ambiyan, but when it comes to the Indian cuisine, I'm a fan. I moved out to the Niagara Region for a few years and would regularly drive an hour and forty minutes just to satisfy my craving. Normally I'm wary of restaurants that try to be too many things at once instead of sticking to what they do best, but given the way there's usually someone in the group who doesn't want Indian, it's nice to know that they can't object when there are burgers and other common staples on the menu. Eat here, then grab an ice cream at the Firehall and take a stroll around Toogood Pond. No evening could be better. More...
The Beef Vindaloo is Yum Yum Yum! Awesome restaurant, great service!
Great fun on the expensive side. Well hosted.
Excellent service, fantastic food, and an amazing ambiance
Came on a Monday night twice cause they've got a great promotion - but one main and side get another main and side 50% off. I've been here twice I will say that once I did get a stomachache but it was worth it and might have been just the spice (we'll never know and I would still go back). Love their butter chicken, garlic naan is a must have and their beef masala. I personally can't take too much spice so the beef masala has quite a kick to it so highly advise getting rice to tame that fire. More...
The food is really good, especially for an Indian restaurant here. Make sure to tell them your preferred spice levels.
Went to try their Butter Chicken as we are on a hunt to find a best Butter Chicken (BC) after our awesome place in Scarborough called "Tanjore" closed last month that had the best BC ever that we had tasted. This BC came a close second. It was flavorful and mildly spicy, would recommend it and suggest a slightly larger portion of rice to go with it. Being in the main st Unionville neighborhood the prices were a bit high. Will try other items on menu on subsequent visits More...
Amazing food ....excellent service....
Delicious Indian food. Patio is great in the sunmer
The Indian food is absolutely amazing! I love their naan bread and it is my go to spot for Indian food in the GTA. I highly recommend checking them out!!
Nice Indian restaurant on Unionville main Street with big outdoor patio. Ordered take out. Was quick and efficient. Ordered samosa and butter chicken with rice. Food was tasty. Slightly on the expensive side. Patio was packed so I would think reservations would be needed More...
We went there yesterday. The food was tasty. The quantity was good as well in main course for 2. Appetizer quantity can be increased based on the group of 4. Service was awesome. Great follow up. By the servers. Will definitely go again and recommend others. More...
Excellent ServiceExcellent Butter ChickenExcellent Tikka MasalaPrices decentRaita was ok
Great place, interesting and diverse selection and wonderful staff.
Local restaurant, authentic India food. Great taste.
Very expensive for Indian food, but good.
We sat on the upper patio which is like a covered porch. Wait staff was friendly. Indian food was great.
Freshly prepared meals, spiced to just right.
My favorite Markham Indian restaurant
Very good restaurant at the historic village of uniounville.The food is amazing. And the ambience is also good. Love to go here.
From the courteous staff, the flavourful food and the atmosphere is fantastic. Will definitely go there again and also recommend to friends and family
Good food and excellent service.
We were a group of 23 and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great food, great service.
Good food and service was good too
Great service. Butter chicken is delicious. Meat is tender. Other dishes also meet expectation Not too spicy.
Great Indian food in a pub setting, with outdoor seating. Regular pub food for those averse to trying the Indian fare.
Good but expensive
Yogesh M Patel
Good food and great service
My wife and I frequent Ambiyan 3-4 times a month, it's our special place. The food, atmosphere and service is exceptional. They have NEVER failed to deliver an intimate experience and your NEVER rushed.I don't know, can WOW be intimate? You'll just have to find out yourself and maybe we'll see you there!Thought I should update the Ambiyan experience - It’s exactly the same! That’s what makes them so successful and why there patrons are so loyal.Michelle / Grant More...
It's true that their prices seem a little bit higher than other indian restaurant. BUT!! the butter naan was the best and way better than Bombay something restaurant that I tried last week through skip the dishes. Now I feel the prices are affordable :) More...

Great place for Indian food, interior needs some work though
great menu selection - wasnt disappointed
This is by far my fiancé and my favourite Indian restaurant. We live in Stouffville but make the 40 minute driven whenever we're craving Indian. If you haven't been before, do yourself a favour and go. More...
Best indian food i tried in Canada
Great food...friendly service
Labeeb Ahmed karuthalil moidutty
Food was decent, interior is really good. There was a confusion in the order, but the manager was handled it properly.
I can't eat spicy but from what I did have, I enjoyed this place.
I am still tasting these beautiful flavours, my favourite so far in all of Toronto. Appmazing aloo tikki and a brie pakora that was inspring. Perfect rice and shahi panneer that had my kids begging for more naan. Offering a tasting menu that we plan to go back for (sans kids).... putting it the calendar now!!! More...
Great service. Tasty food.
Authentic Indian Food. It really is amazing. I love spicy food and normally order the Chicken Vindaloo and my wife orders the Butter Chicken. The taste is so authentic and the service is exceptional. I especially love the patio in the summer as it is in the perfect location close to the Unionville Band stand. More...

Excellent food quality and food service. Clean and inviting.
My team went here for lunch and appears to have new management. The owner kept coming out to check on us and was quite friendly. Food was delivered much faster than the last time we went. Food was very good, but spicy - you can ask them to tone it down though. More...
First time visiting this restaurant and absolutely loved every minute of it. Mother's Day set menu was just perfect with a ton of options. Food was simply outstanding as was the service. Can't wait to go back. More...
Great food. Mediocre service
Good food.. Nice service!
Wonderful food. Great and friendly service.
Owesome Indian food. Eat in or take out. Must check out
Great Indian food. The butter chicken is delicious.
Awesome food and great service
Pleasantly surprised with this restaurant located at Unionville. The food had great flavours
Great atmosphere and amazing food.
Great food, try the tasting menu, great service
This place has nice patio for summer days and always packed. I visited last weekend and was pleasantly surprised! The butter chicken was one of the best I have tried so far. My daughter loved veggitavle briyani. We will visit again in the summer. More...
The food is amazing the service is excellent. They have a real tandoor to make naan and tandoori chicken for the chicken tikka masala. Good selection of beers as well.
Thé atmosphere and the food looked great
i brought my airpods
Food was amazing! Three of us shared coconut curry tiger prawns, lamb biryani and chicken tikka masala with one order of rice and one order of garlic naan. We were very impressed with the meal and we had to pack up a little less than half. More...
Tasty foodGreat service.
Great atmosphere and good food. Service was efficient and very prompt. Will definitely return!
It was our first time here. The ambience is good and the location is great. The quality and quantity of the food was pretty good. The service was not bad as well. We couldn't give five star because there was a hair in one of our curry. We understand that this happens once in a while... The waiter took the dish back and replaced it. We ordered a naan later and he said it's complimentary which is not bad. Some restaurants don't even apologize! More...
Incredible. Great location with a nice old school patio. I’ve been to this place so many times for lunches that at one point they asked us why we come here so often which was weird. If you tell them to make it extremely spicy they will add tons of chillies. Their naan is amazing and fresh but I wish they gave you more bigger pieces as sometimes there will be more left over gravy but you don’t have any naan left or there becomes tense discussion on who will get the last piece of naan. The tandoor naked chicken tikka pieces are massive and deliciously tender. The vindaloo chicken is amazing and spicy and includes this signature mini onion that adds a lot of flavour as well as looks beautiful. The dal Makhni great but a bit too watery for my liking. More...
Good food with customized spiciness to our liking.
Hi Profile Media
Very tasty food, good service. This is the second time we've come to this restaurant and we've had a pleasant time enjoying the food, atmosphere and service.
Great Service, but food was not what I was expecting
2 of us did the sample of 4 mains and still had lots left over for lunch the next day. Yummy food, attentive service. Prices are typical of Unionville main street.
I have ordered several times over the course of a year, and mostly have positive experiences from this restaurant. My personal recommendations from this restaurant are the Butter Chicken, Lamb Vindaloo with a side of Garlic Naan. The Butter Chicken is creamy, the Lamb Vindaloo is spicy and he Garlic Naan pairs well with both.The single negative experience that I have had with Ambiyan - and the reason for the 4-Star rating - is finding a single, long, black hair in my order. I found it in the sauce of my order of Lamb Vindaloo at the end of my meal. But accidents happen, and typically only have positive experiences with this restaurant. More...

Exceptional Indian food with acceptable service and environment
Excellent authentic great flavors.
Great service, very clean , untouchable east indian food that good
Service 4.5Food 3.5Ambiance 4.0Between 2 people our meal consisted of veggie paneer biriyani, butter naan, a chicken vindaloo, and 2 beers on tap. The meals don't come with rice, so we decided on a biriyani, and it was probably my best decision of the day, we even walked away with a small take away container. For the price we paid for the food, I think it was either too hard (naan) or too sweet (vindaloo) for my liking, comparing it with many other Indian restaurants I've tried at Etobicoke and Mississauga. If you'd like ambience and celebration, this could be your spot. But if you're looking for authentic quality food, I'd save my trip for another Indian restaurant. More...
When I lived downtown Toronto, I lived near Banjara, which I considered to be the best Indian restaurant in the GTA. That is until I started going to Ambiyan more regularly. Ambiyan's dishes are so flavourful and so consistently good. Probably the best eggplant bharta and chana masala I've ever had. My only criticism would be the slightly fancy interior. I'm not a big fan of the white tablecloth and wine glass on the table look -- it doesn't feel accessible, especially considering I'm usually dressed casually and with my kids. I usually prefer casual restaurants that let the quality of their food speak for itself. But Ambiyan is so good I'd eat it anywhere, in any setting. Five stars! More...
We did the set 4 course meal which was way way too much food for 2 people. I loved being able to try a lot of different dishes. The beef vindaloo was overcooked and tough to chew, and chicken was a bit overcooked as well. Overall enjoyed it. More...
Bernard Van der Stichele
We've been going to Ambyian for more than six years. Throughout this time, it has remained our favourite restaurant in the Markham/Unionville area by far. Consistently great food , staff and setting. More...
The food is great here! There is nice staff and I totally recommend it.
The food is simply delicious! The staff are welcoming and I totally reccomend it.
Great good and service. Busy place
Authentic Indian food
Very good food
The service was good and the atmosphere even better. They had a great pre fixed menue that was affordable and gave you all the options of the mains to choose from - which is very uncommon. I found the donut round ball dessert strange but the rice pudding tasted how it should without the cinimon. A little trick... ask for garlic nan if you do not they will bring you plain nan. More...
Flavours out of this world..Bravo!
Been here a number of times and never had a bad meal or experience.Food is delicious; and ample. The Brie pakora is a must! They do not skimp on the spice level, but we prefer it that way.The main dining area has a great ambience and their outdoor seatings allows you to enjoy the beauty of Historical Unionville. More...
This place is more on the fancy and pricey side. I had the lunch combo that, with coffee, ended up being way over $30 (mind you, I upgraded my appetizer to the fish pakora as none of the basic apps really appealed to me). Worth every penny though. For my main, I got the coconut-based shrimp curry with naan and it was exquisite. Next time I visit my friend who lives in the are, we'll certainly eat there again. More...
The food is so mesmerizing, everything was perfect from quality to quantity. I'll give 10/10.
Great quality Indian food. Some of the best in the GTA.
One of my favourite Indian Restaurant in the Markham! Friendly staff and tasty food can never go wrong.
Please note we absolutely in love with that restaurant and the food they make and put on a table . Being an owner of the restaurant we know how hard it is to prepare and deliver good food . This place is absolutely exceptional and the job that they do is deserved to be appreciated, respected and cherished. Thank you ! And for those who dares to put any bad reviews should be ashamed ! More...
Just great food and great service. Can't wait until I can get back there. Excellent.
Very delicious food.
Food was delicious
Hendryck De Los Santos
Amazing authentic cooking and decent service.
Ambiyan is always a treat. Delicious food, friendly staff, beautiful location and the best samosas I've ever had. This place is our go-to for Indian food. We go to Ambiyan for both family and staff parties. More...
Delicious food and wow service. Veg. Trio and Coco Prawn curry was the best. This was my second dining experience at Ambiyan last Saturday night Christmas party. I will be back to celebrate my 31st night dinner at Ambiyan More...
the mango lassi drink is beyond awesome black dal my favorite simply delicious generous portions
Our first visit. Nice authentic indian food choices paired with good wine list. Tasty and good portions. We will be back :-)
Great taste and presentation. Staff is friendly too
A great little Indian restaurant... have eaten here loads of times and am a massive fan of Indian food. Have never been disappointed. Yes, it is a little but directed to a Canadian palate and food is not really that spicy but they do a great job overall! More...
Food is good. Not authentic Indian but good in taste
Great food! Great ambience!
Delicious!! Best Indian food I've had in a very long time. Beef Vindaloo with Naans 'amazing'. Pricey but worth it. Atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely come again. More...
I rarely go to a la carte Indian restaurants because I still don't know all the names of my favourite dishes so I tend to eat with my eyes first at a buffet. I've heard good things about Ambiyan so we decided to try it while celebrating a friend's birthday.We started with Chicken Pakora and Onion Bhaji as appetizers. The servings looked a bit on the small side and the taste was just okay, nothing to get excited about.For our mains, we ordered the Chana Masala (chick peas), Saag Paneer (spinach and cheese), Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Ambiyan Lamb Curry, Beef Kofta, Basmati Rice, and Butter Naan.It didn't take long for the food to arrive and it was very colourful and aromatic. Every dish was full of rich flavour, making it difficult to pick a favourite. They were all good. We ended up ordering more naan because it was good and we needed it to mop up all the sauces.At first sight, the portions appeared small but we ended up struggling to finish everything. The service was very good. Our water glasses were never empty.Although it was an overall good experience, I did find it pricey. It worked out to $35/person, including tax and tip, and no alcohol. That's twice as much as I usually pay at my favourite Indian buffet where I can eat more choices until I'm stuffed sick.I might consider coming here again for a special occasion but there are lots of options in this price range.3.5/5.0 More...
The service, food and surroundings are all absolutely wonderful! I can't wait to return!
One of the best Indian restaurant in Union ville.
Life In Motion FX
Amazing food! I really enjoyed the Naan. I would recommend this to all my friends. Will come back again!
Just finished dinner here with a friend...A-M-A-Z-I-N-G food and service. I had the butter chicken and the sauce was very flavourful and rich. Also had the chicken kebabs as an appy and they were awesome. We'll be going here again...so worth it, I highly recommend this place. Very elegant and again, the service was wonderful. More...
I made online reservations and arrived a bit late. We got seated right away. Waiter was really friendly and helpful. We got complimentary mango drinks to start, they were very good. Food arrived VERY FAST. I don't believe everything is made fresh but everything we ordered was very flavourful. We order 2 garlic naan, chicken biryani, 3 veggie trio, tandoori chicken, butter chicken and eggplant bharta for a party of 4. It was just enough. Overall experience was good but I found that the food was a bit over priced and the portions was small. More...
Amazing food. Great service and very quick. Clean restaurant and friendly servers. I would definitely try the butter chicken with bread and it’s freaking finger licking delicious
Ambience is good. They have a great patio to chill out. The staff was courteous and very help. We found the neighbouring group of people really loud. When requested, they changed our table. The food is good. I would not say it an authentic Indian food. I would still recommend it once. More...
Appetizers don’t have authentic Indian flavour, however, the mains were great. Naan is a must have. The service was also great.
Prompt friendly staff & tasty food. Portions of curry could serve 2-3 people. We received mini mango yogurt desserts for free, which was nice! Only time here so I don't know if that's normal as it was on the desert menu as well... Would go again. More...
Excellent food, good wait staff, and fair prices. Go for dinner and enjoy the sunset with some good Indian food on the patio.
Great food and amazing service as always!
Great Indian and Pub Food, patio. Able to accommodate large groups. Drop in and reservations. Excellent view of the bandstand.
Good atmosphere. Good food.
Good family restaurant, casual atmosphere, good food. 10/10 would try again.
Nice ambienece at patio and delicious food, located at a bery nice location of heritage unionville town, gives feel of a tourist destination!!
Passed the restaurant many times in Unionville and often wanted to visit. Finally did, and not disappointed. Good atmosphere, nice dining area, attentive service and just terrific food. Personally had Chicken Tikka Masala, my favourite, and I measure Indian restaurants based on how this dish stands up. I think the best in Ontario in eighteen years, as I remember.Will be going back more often now. More...
Simply delicious! We didn’t have reso’s on a Saturday night. We had an impromptu date night and they made every effort to give us a nice table. The food was incredible. We will be back! More...
Good food. Pricey but worth it for the quality of food and service.
Excellent service, food and atmosphere! Will definitely visit again
We rarely go to Indian restaurants, but we decided to try this place and were happy we did. Delicious food, very generous portion and friendly wait staff. And the complimentary mango lassi shots were lovely! More...
Real tasty food. Moderately priced. Fixed price menu is good
Absolutely one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to in a while. Their food is delicious, their staff is attentive and the service is superb. It does cost a little more than an average restaurant, but not by much and I honestly think it's worth spending that little bit extra to receive such excellent hospitality. The environment is very cozy and relaxing and the location is great. When I last went, I had beef vindaloo and goat roganjosh, and they were fantastically prepared! I recommend Ambiyan to anyone! More...
Great service, very responsive and friendly. The food was also really good. The atmosphere is great for dates or groups.
Food quality and quantity were very good. Ordered for two people and I would say we are more than stuffed. Spice level was definitely toned down to cater mass majority but was adequate for us!
Nice Indian food, great patio
Christine Des Lauriers
Absolutely delicious food!
Simply the best Indian cuisine! Always fresh and always delicious! We are all addicted to it in our office and we have the most diverse team of people in the office. Their menu also has some less "Indian" options for the customers that are not as adventurous. Generous take out portions and a lovely atmosphere for white-tablecloth-dine-in occasions. Amazing summer patio in a beautiful location! More...
We had chickpeas curry and seafood curry. I didn't try the seafood but my friend said it is delicious! We are planning to come back and try more dishes! Nice location and the view is very good. More...
Excellent homemade Indian cuisine. Like, I mean super delicious. We came with a group of 7 people and really enjoyed our entire experience.
Quite, intimate and friendly atmosphere, good food
Danny Da Ponte
Great food with knowledgeable staff. A variety of heat and appetizers. Busy so best reserve ahead of time especially in the summer. Outside patio is great place as well. More...
Very good indian food!
Great service and amazing cuisine.
Price is little bit high, but foods are fantastic, one my favorite Indian restaurant, especially the vegetarian options
Love their food, so tasty. I usually buy their vegetarian "power lunch value meals" to take out and eat it on a picnic table at the parc accross the street.
Great food, excellent service perfect atmosphere.
Amazing food amazing atmosphere..price is little high but worth it for the food and the whole ambiance of the place ... Good place for romantic dinner
Reliably good food. Good service. Nice location. Not inexpensive.
Excellent Indian food on Main St. Unionville
Kate Kozikowski real estate sales representatives
Great food, and excellent service
Amazing food, good quantity but a little on the pricey side. The service is good. Definitely lives up to its trip advisor ratings!
Good food, good service strongly recommend it
Very nice food, good service, and the ambiance is perfect for dates.
Ordered from Ambyan yesterday and we were highly impressed wiith the quality of the food. Ordered the small value meal 54.00 ! It says that it serves 2 -3. We had more food that the three of us could finish ! We would recommend to anyone looking for delicious Indian option. More...
Pretty solid Indian food
I have always had a great experience here. The food is consistent and the staff are friendly and great at handling busy crowds. I would highly recommend making a trip to the restaurant no matter what season we are in. It is located in Unionville, so after dinner you can walk around and have a great night or day out. More...
I've had my share of Indian food from working in northern California in the past. But I have never had the explosion of flavors as I have experienced here. It's pretty pricey but every once in a while my tongue begs to come back here. Lamb is my favourite. Never gamey and just the right spiciness. Highly recommended! More...
If nothing, just visit it for the picturesque street it's located on!!
The whole family loves the food!
Excellent food, lots of variety and excellent service.
Good Indian food. Not for people who like it very spicy. But food is good and service is above average
2nd time eating here. Everything is so flavorful here. Definitely recommended if looking for Indian food in Markham. Not sure if it's just me but you can easily overindulge. Server can smile a bit more. Very good place overall More...
Very good indian food. We went for take away. Service was good. Price was expensive compared to maybe another indian restaurant. But the food IS NOT OILY. Which means I will return for more as it is of quality! More...
Loved this place. The lunch fixed special is a great deal. Had samosas and pakoras as appetizers and both were delicious. As a main, the curry chicken is absolutely fantastic. You can taste every little flavour in the recipe and it's perfect, must try! Garlic Nam is also great. One of the best restaurants in Unionville. More...
Good place for Indian foods
Awesome outside ambiance and very helpful staff. Food was delicious.
Great food, beautiful calm environment and excellent hospitality.
Good place to eat if you are in the neighbourhood. Location makes it a charming place to sit on the patio on a sunny afternoon with a cold one. As far as food goes it’s ok.
Rula B. Morcos
Great food, patio and service! The prices are a little on the higher end.
Great place and ambience
Best Indian food I've ever experienced, and great service. Will be back for sure.
In the heart of Unionville, a place with beautiful ambiance. They serve good Indian food. Best place for Biryani lovers.
The employees were not very friendly but the food was delicious! Nice decor as well, with a big patio.
Delicious food and reasonably priced. The best option for lunch is a fixe price lunch special for $22 (verified Aug 12th 2018--price may change at a later date). The lunch special is in effect from 11am to 3pm. The special includes 1 appetizer, 1 main and 1 side. Normally just the main alone is $19. Service is great with the server ensuring water jug/glasses was always topped up. Would come back again. More...
Danny Da Ponte
High quality food and great selections. Hot is very hot and the wait staff know the food. It gets busy in the summer.
Great food, good service, would definitely go again. Lunch prix fixe is a nice deal.
Very good food. Not spicy as many Indian places tend to be. Is a little pricey, but well worth the cost. So far every item I have tried on the menu has been amazing.Picky eaters (and kids) usually eat their whole servings. More...
Very clean and bright restaurant with friendly service AND they the BEST Indian food in the GTA. Have been to tons of Indian restaurants and this one is always my go to. Never had a bad meal here even my kids love everything. More...
Good food choices. Nice bar area inside.Nice patio outside. Almost directly across from bandstand where music bands play on Thursday nights.
Easily the best Indian restaurant in York Region for me. Great food and incredibly good and friendly service, can’t recommend them highly enough
Staff here is very polite and the food never disappoints. I was so impressed by the quality of service. I usually don’t like Indian food too much but this place is great and I find myself always coming back for more. Keep up the good work!
visited a few times, good food though a little pricy
This place serves some of the best Indian food I've ever eaten. The butter chicken is amazing and the portion sizes are generous. The overall atmosphere of the place is nice too, it has a very eclectic feel. The real gem is their patio during the summer. More...
Best kept secret for Indian around. Have paid double for Indian that wasnt nearly as good. Try everything.
Warm, beautiful meal - absolutely wonderful on this winter night. Look forward to our next visit.
Nice place. Went on a Tuesday so it was not busy. Ambiance was OK. The food was flavourful.
Stumbled upon this charming place while walking in the area. I had the best butter chicken ever at this restaurant. Excellent berry cider as well. The small lamb kebab appetizer left much to be desired. More...
A go to place for indian food
Lovely restaurant great service and wonderful food
Good Indian food
Great food a must visit
One of our favorite Indian restaurants in the GTA. Food is always very fresh, the ambiance is fantastic and accompanied with nice music (Jazz). The dishes are very tasty and service is excellent. I would recommend starting the experience with one of their well crafted cocktails. The Old Fashioned is noteworthy with the perfect balance of bitters and sugar. A perfect way to open the palate for a wonderful and flavourful weekend lunch. Highly recommended. More...
Great place for Indian food in a cute location. Love the ambiance. Fast and friendly service.
Really good Indian food. The place has a nice patio and it also has Pub food such as a butter chicken sandwich on naan. Service was ok. Atmosphere was nice, we sat outside on the patio. More...
Had heard amazing things about this place so went to check it out. The pita bread is so good! Dipped in the butter chicken! The butter chicken poutine sounds great in theory but was let down by it. I pictured it having cheese curds, fries and butter chicken. But it was just butter chicken over fries. Would go back for the main butter chicken and pita. Agree with other posts that it is pricy especially for the portions. More...
Lamb vindaloo is recommended, spicy but not overbearing spicy (Coming from a person who likes spicy food). Their Naan is amazing as well. Will definitely dine again.
Fantatik food and service. The agha khan museum is impressive and peaceful.
I went there couple of times now and each better than the first. First of all it’s halal food. The chef is a Muslim. The quality of the food near perfect and the service is second to none.
Amaging Indian food. This place is a must-go in Unionville. The atmosphere is not great but the taste is excellent! We will definitely visit it again on a summer night on the patio. Do not forget to order the vegetable kofta! More...
Excellent place for Indian food and lovely location. Friendly people.
Ryan and Nicholas Yeung
Amazing India cuisine
Excellent service. Fish pakora was fresh and crisp, beef vindaloo spicy and flavourful, perfect paneer and deliciously creamy butter chicken. Can't wait to return!
Food was great however over priced
The Share plate is excellent! The lamb chops are very flavourful, and the chicken just the right spice level.
Great food and service. Pricey, but understandable considering the area.

It's also a restaurant good ideas for vegetarian, I enjoy their foods
Best Indian in Markham.
Very good Indian food, service is good.
One of the best Indian restaurants I've been to! Delicious authentic well prepared food, staff are friendly and professional and it's a very pleasant atmosphere! Highly recommend this place to everyone! More...
Stumbled upon this charming place while walking in the area. I had the best butter chicken ever at this restaurant. Excellent berry cider as well. However, the size and taste of the lamb kebab left much to be desired. More...
Food was delicious. Bathroom could have been nicer. But, it’s worth a return trip, or trips. Really loved everything I ordered. Going back with more friends.
Stopped for some cold drinks at their village pub on a Sunday afternoon. Sweet service and highly recommends the chicken and vegetable samosas the food but will be back for a bigger bite. Definitely a spot to hit in Markham as there does not seem to be too much entertainment in this laid back town. Only downfall was there was street food being served and sold but if you bought it you could not eat on patio. Very off so this was the only eyebrow raise. More...
Everything we had was delicious! Highly recommend!!
A unique taste of Indian food on mainstreet Unionville! Do make reservations as they were barely able to squeeze our group of four in during dinner on a Saturday. I was happy with the variety of flavours that was in the chicken pakora; paired with a subtle chutney that was good on its own as well. The butter chicken was full of big cubes of chicken, with a smooth curry on top that paired well with the naan and rice. The curry lamb was slightly tough but the flavour was great. While the prices are slightly on the higher end for slightly smaller portions, the food was truly amazing; flavourful, well prepared, and good! More...
Food is authentic and of excellent quality. Great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend if your after the best Indian cuisine north of 401.
I stepped in here just to have a light snack on a beautiful sunny weekend day. The patio was open and I had a nice taste of one of their appetizers!(Food:)VEGETARIAN SAMOSAS: Oooo I've really come to love samosas ever since one of my colleagues brought them to work! And these ones were great! WIth potatoes and peas on the inside, they were arranged artistically, but having each half split open and having a green/brown sauce on the side.(Price:)VEGETARIAN SAMOSAS: $7 I think my Tamil friend would say that that's too much for a samosa, but I don't eat a lot of Indian food anyways haha.(Ambience:)I didn't even step inside, but the patio was nice.(Service:)Fine.(Overall:)I liked it! Vege samosas are the best! More...
This classy Indian restaurant in charming Unionville has great ambiance and good food.Nestled in quaint little downtown Unionville, Ambiyan delighted us from the moment we first saw it. The outside of the restaurant has a homestead-y kind of feel to it: a wooden picket fence, outdoor tables, and a porch leading up to the front door. The inside was equally delightful, with artwork on the walls, stylish furniture, and lots of seating room.We weren't sure what to order, so we got the four-course tasting menu. The first course, the appetizers, was mediocre and didn't strike us as very authentic. The second course, sorbet, was just a palate cleanser, but a good one. The third course, the main meal, was the star. We got to pick up to 6 dishes to try and share, and they were all delicious. Our favorites were the rogan josh, the spicy seafood curry, and the palak paneer. The garlic naan was also divine. Finally, the fourth course, the desert, was also wonderful, but we didn't eat too much since we were already stuffed.The whole experience was tasty and relaxing. The service was quite slow, so we spent more time here than we wanted to. But if you have time to spare and want a classy meal, this is a good choice. More...
5/5Location: Main Street Unionville - great location, parking available behind the restaurant or down the streetMenu: Lots of great options for Indian food, and also a menu for Western food, so something for everyone. I tried the lunch prix fixe menu where I chose the vegetarian samosa, butter chicken (freaking delicious!), and buttered naan (next time I'll opt for plain). The food was so flavourful and delicious. Portion sizes were as expected.Price: A bit on the pricier side, but worth it.Service: Amazing service - very attentive, not very long of a wait, and great recommendations on the menu items. More...

Had a wonderful evening at Ambiyan and would definitely go asgain.
Before East Asia decided to invade Main Street Unionville, a small part of South Asia had quietly moved in and taken up residence. Years later, as the restaurant landscape ebbed and flowed on the street, Ambiyan still confidently stood its ground, luring passerbys with spicy aromas. Oh yeah, it's expensive. There's no doubt about that. $19 for entrees that come out as little silver bowls filled with saucy meats. But if you don't think those saucy meats will fill you up, you're wrong. I've tried the butter chicken, chicken tikka masala (curry yogurt sauce) and lamb saag (boiled seasoned spinach). All were fantastic. I alternated between shoving more in my mouth because it was so delicious and taking a long break because my tongue was on fire. Extra $5 for rice or naan, which might be a rip off but damn it, you will absolutely need those overpriced carbs. Seriously, you can't just eat the entrees by themselves, they're practically spicy sauces. No wonder lassi drinks were invented. Nothing kills the burn better. On top of the fiery main dishes, they serve a range of appetizers. I personally think the spinach pakoras are delightful. Yes, there may be better, cheaper, more authentic Indian food out there. I wouldn't know, I'm a noob. But there sure is something special about walking into this beautiful restaurant, looking out onto scenic Main Street, and enjoying some delicious curry. Walk by Ambiyan and take a whiff. That's the smell of amazing food...and the American dream (Okay, Canadian).(13/100) - 2018 More...
OMG, I went here with my mom recently for lunch. The food was so good - I don't eat a lot of Indian food, but this place has me hooked. The restaurant itself was very nice too, and the service was great. The server clearly explained each dish, and we were both happy with our order. I will definitely be back. We also had enough leftover for another meal at home. More...
The food was very good and the prize fixe Lunch was a good deal.
Always a great experience - from the service to the food, just terrific!
A wonderful modern restaurant with a creative Indian menu that features some dishes a little out of the ordinary. Highly recommend seafood curry, rack of lamb, samosa. Chai was not quite to our taste (we both spend time in southern India), but overall, an excellent choice. More...
Ive been to this restaurant a few times because of their high quality food and service. Great lamb biryani! Also loved their saag paneer. Naan was also fresh and tasty. Their lemonade though (tasted a bit powdery) went down like juice but dangerously loaded! More...
Second time visiting. Wait staff always helpful with selections, especially for those not familiar with the cuisine. Food is great. Love it.
First time getting my husband out for Indian cuisine! He loved it. Great meal as always
As always the food and service is amazing. Ambiyan continues to be one of our favourite restaurants!
Delicious Indian food, some of the best I've ever had. Loved the variety of Vegetarian options. So many authentic and tasty plates to choose from, great flavors and spices. I am a fan.
Food and service was good. Good size portions, food prices not bad for quality. Wine prices are outrageous. $16 for 8oz house wine, even for Unionville is expensive. Wine bill more than food bill and I dined with 82 year old mother, we weren’t exactly overdoing it! More...
Food was amazing and the service was great Enjoying the atmosphere with the family.
Always delicious. Great patio. Prix fixe meal options too!
Always great food and service. We were a group of 9 and we enjoyed a lovely table outside on the patio. Everyone enjoyed the food and ambiance. The garlic naan is a must try aside from the Dhaba Chicken Curry, Butter Chicken, Prawns Vindaloo, Eggplant Bharta, etc....all very yummy and we took the leftovers home to enjoy the next day. Thank you for another great meal! Definitely a great location on Unionville main street. Recommend making a reservation on weekends as it gets very busy. Be back soon. Bahut dhanyavaad. More...
Ambiyan is by far our most favourite restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service is incredible. Can't wait for our next visit!
Specified in the reservation that we were bringing an infant but when we arrived, we were seated beside the entrance where a cold breeze came each time the door was open. Food was exceptional but our server didn't seem very friendly as he never asked us if we needed anything even though our infant was crying. However, we did have another server kind enough to offer help and I had a nice conversation with him as he was a parent as well. More...
Beautifully quaint restaurant in an awesome area. Great food & service was good! Will definitely be back for more of their amazing menu options!
with very little fuss, a table on a very busy evening was found on the patio so that we could eat the very good food and listen to the last outdoor concert of the summer. staff was wonderful and full of smiles. More...
The location of this place makes it awesome. At the historic Unionville, you can sit out in the patio and enjoy the view. It's very relaxing. The food is expensive but made very well. We really enjoyed the veggie appetizer platter. Service is quite good and free parking is at rear. I'd give it 5 stars only for the location (and not for the Indian food option) More...
Really good Indian cuisine. It's a bit on the pricey side but food tasted awesome. Great flavours.Parking in the area can be tricky during the summer months but you'd still be able to find a spot. Family friendly and vegetarian friendly too. More...
Really good Indian food and friendly staff. Would recommend.
Food is a bit on the pricey side also price on the website and on the restaurant does not match. Appetizer of baked fish was not that good as fish may have been frozen for a while. While the main course of chicken was good and naan was super soft. More...
Food is good, but little bit expensive. A bit unrefined service.
Food taste good. But portions are small. Have to pay separate for regular naan. Pricey in general. Paying for the ambience.
Great Indian cuisine ever. We've been there twice so far and the food quality is consistent. One of the go-to India restaurants in Markham area.
Some of the best Indian food in Markham. The patio has a great view of the bandshell across the street, but beware walking in: it's often packed during busy times. Decent amount of off-street parking in the area. More...
Authentic Quality Indian food plus very you service
My favorite place to go for Indian food! So fresh and flavorful! The staff there are so polite and the restaurant has a great vibe! Definitely recommend it to everyone! More...
Everything was great. No salad (onions or anything ) included.Have to order separately. Rest was above average.
Nice little spot for Indian food! Loved their Prix Fixe menu!
Just the most incredible authentic Indian cuisine. I'm never disappointed and drive from 40 minutes away for the food. Been 2 times so far.Service is always excellent.Food is amazing.Stop here if you're in the area. More...
Food was tasty and the patio is great in the summer! Attentive service is the one thing they could improve on.
That green yogourt dip was amazing.
Best Indian food in the city.
Love the food - must try the lamb vindaloo
Cosy place in the centre of Unionville
Meal was good. I had a lamb dish and although the lamb itself wasn't great the dish overall was good and filling. The person I was eating with loved their butter chicken. Great patio right on Unionville Main Street near the bandstand. Our server didn't come back to our table for almost an hour but we were eating slowly and when we were ready for a bill there was a large party that was leaving and asking to get their bill split 100 different ways. More...
Best Indian food in the GTA, hands down. The lamb chops are unbelievable.
Excellent good and service. I'll definitely return.
Great food and service at lunch today!
Amazing Indian Fare!
