Second visit in a week, and both were exceptionally good visits. Good food, relaxed atmosphere, unlike the experiences when this venue was the Lotus, Chinese restaurant. Excellent value for money, and the hosts were prepared to amend their great early bird menu, on certain choices, when asked . Highly recommended!

My wife and I are regulars at the Amala. We have never had a bad meal since it opened. We enjoy it because the food is great and well presented. The staff are very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Easily the best Thai in Wakefield for an all inclusive experience.

My wife and I chose to visit Amala as we love Thai food and had perhaps overdone it with a few other West Yorkshire Thai restaurants. The service was excellent, the food extremely good overall. We had the banquet for two and added the Pad Thai dish too. The starters were beautifully spiced (and hot too) and the main dishes... More

This was my first visit and although my friend and I were practically the only ones dining it was nevertheless a good experience. We both had dishes from the lunchtime specials, I had chicken with noodles and my friend chose a pork curry, they were served promptly and piping hot. The service was excellent and the food and wine is... More

A vegetarian friend and I ate here tonight. There is so much to recommend this place! Firstly the charming, friendly, helpful waitress. The food was brilliant and we were both able to negotatiate variations to dishes listed on the menu, eg massaman chicken, rather than beef, curry. 2 soup starters (vegetable Tom yum and coconut chicken) were both punchy and...

We've been going to Amala now for quite some time and are never disappointed with the food or service. Decided to try one of the set meals this time and everything was superb...as expected. We eat out quite often and have experienced poor food and service elsewhere, but never here, so can't understand some of the negative reviews. Looking forward... More

Just got back from a quiet Monday night at the Amala Thai and it was superb. As stated on other reviews the décor is a bit dated (especially upstairs) but the food was superb, the best Thai I have ever tasted. You could tell it was freshly prepared, I had satay chicken to start followed by Pan Fried Chicken. My... More
