I have been coming to The Ambassador for years. All of my first dates are there and there's never much conversation once the food arrives because it's so good. I've only had one bad experience and that was in the bar on a late night, my wings weren't fresh. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very bland Americanized "Chinese" food that sounds better on the menu than in reality. And the bar is mucho depressing- populated with middle aged losers who personify what Cheers would actually be like.

On the plus side, great Karaoke selection, good Hot and Sour Soup, HDTV in bar, decent eats. On the minus side: watery drinks, expensive entrees. A fun night out.
