Spicy gluten free hell at Ambrosia (Houston,TX)
I mean if you have 4 stars on Yelp of course I will try you out, however was nothing short of two stars in my personal own experience. The outside of the building is cool, the patio, the door, the entrance is very elite. However soon as I walked into the restaurant, it smelt like someone left the bathroom door open. Shortly after being seated I asked for all gluten-free options and what was available and explained my allergies. She told me which options I could chose that were gluten free and I said I’d take all of the ones she said which was about 5 items. I also told her NO CILANTRO on anything because it’s disgusting and ruins all the flavors for me, we repeated this twice. The first dish comes out and she explains she was wrong, it’s actually not gluten free and it was served with cilantro.
She also does not explain all the dishes in this entire restaurant are on the 100000000 scones level of spiciness. We ordered a medium rare shish ka bob beef thing and it comes out well done, we had to send it back and the bartender came over and apologized and sent us out a new one. We also had the curry which also came with cilantro caked all over it and burns your mouth to death. Every dish we had came out wrong, or either spicy which is our fault yes If you love spicy food you will be happy.
Finally we decided not to stay for a dessert and after our mouths were on fire to pay our tab and bail out. We spent over $100 and got nothing more than a stomach ache and left still being hungry. If you love spicy food then this is the place for you. However if you are gluten-free and like decent service stay away, as there is no set in stone gluten-free menu and the service we received that night was complete garbage.
