Ambala in Slough offers more than your local Ambalas
By Shams MalikHALAL STATUS Fully Halal
Ambala needs no introductions I know, and though they’ve been around for longer than I have, I just had to send in this review to you guys, because… well, because they’re always overlooked, taken for granted, and not appreciated enough.
With that said, let me also emphasise that this is not an advert for Ambala or the Slough branch; I do not work for them and neither am I associated with them in anyway other than being a regular customer.
In fact, my friends and I generally come to this branch, which is just off the M4, after a cricket net session at the indoor school. Why? Because this place is more than just sweets!
Of course, we all love an Ambala sweet; that’s why we come here! And nothing beats them (Royals don’t even come close).
Usually we get ours from West London, but what makes Slough’s different is their selection. They have an assortment sweets and savory food too.
I knew they had samosa as that is something I’ve always got; but what makes Slough’s branch different is that they offer a larger selection of pastry dishes which I haven’t found with our west London branches.
But here’s the real surprise people – Ambala here do curries! This is the main reason for this review, which I just had to share with you.
Now, I always get the kebab, channa and biryani; and I can tell you that it’s lovely! The price is good too. And though it is all reheated in a microwave, it’s fast food after all, which we can enjoy anywhere, including at a cricket ground.
Trust me, chana patura is the right way to approach a 50-over game on a cold day!
