Hungry House Customer 5 * Review :)
This was the first time we've ordered from Ambience and it will definitely NOT be our last. Having spent much of my childhood in Cyprus, I was excited to see some of my old favourites on the menu - plus quite a few things that were new to me.
We ordered the Set Meal for 2 (any two starters and any two grilled dishes). Being perhaps a bit 'greedy guts' and wanting to sample as many goodies as we could, we ordered two Mixed Hot Meze Platters and two Ambience Mixed Grills. All this food... with extra side salad, sauces, and plenty of bread thrown in.... PLUS we qualified for a free dessert of yummy baklava!! I honestly thought that they'd made a mistake with the pricing as it came to £25 in total (plus 50p for using a card).
As for the food verdict... it triggered many happy memories of my childhood and the majority tasted absolutely delicious. The food was cooked nicely and I especially loved the Sucuk (spicy Turkish beef sausage) and the Sheftali (Cypriot) kebab. The Lamb Shish was also really tender and flavoursome. We both found the Borek (a kind of spring roll with feta cheese, parsley and dill) our least favourite item, but that was purely due to personal preference (I don't particularly like dill and my partner thought the borek was tasty but a bit too sickly for him). Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and have plenty left over to look forward to tomorrow, which is a bonus.
The service was second to none, too. We received a very polite phone call well within the given delivery time, apologising for the wait but explaining that the kitchen was very busy (I'm not surprised) and that they would start to deliver the food in a few minutes time. We received our food very shortly after the call, and still within the estimated delivery time. The delivery guy was also courteous and efficient too, so overall, we were impressed.
This is one satisfied customer! Well done and thank you very much Ambience - I shall look forward to next time!
