We'd heard great things and the place looks amazing. However the food was only average (my local Indian restaurant in England does much better food at a considerably cheaper price) and the service was strange...like they were doing us a favour! We did not feel 'lucky' to have eaten here at all, all in all a disappointing evening.

We are staying a week at the zabeel saray. Decided to eat at the Amala restaurant. This is an Indian restaurant with a wide range of meat and vegetarian dishes. Our 4 year old was given some grilled chicken with rice and some chicken korma. He loved it as they made it mild. We had a variety of dishes. Lamb... More

We had heard really good reports about this restaurant. We weren't disappointed but perhaps not as good as we had expected. That said we have a first class local Indian restaurant at home thus we may well have been spoilt. It was good but we didn't feel it was amazing. There was some confusion regarding drinks (but it was Ramadan).... More

I have never tried something more delicious! We have ordered Till Jhinga, Dal Amala, Tawa Kananoora. Truly recommend you to taste it. Chef Ajeesh - our deep reverence to you! But restaurant does...

We visit this restaurant every year whilst on holiday. And we were not disappointed this time. Food is consistently good, the service is attentive without being obtrusive. Would recommend.

I stayed at the Dar al Masyaf hotel within the Madinat Jumeirah resort in Aug 2014, and was recommended by our assigned butler to visit the Amala restaurant because of the quality of the food. We went with his suggestion and we were not disappointed at all. The restaurant is within the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel - possibly the best... More

The food and service was very high quality. The team headed by chef Aman Kumar could not have done more to please us and make our trip memorable. Food was superb with royal alike service. Everyone was great from chef Aman, Sareen, Mubin, Ishan, Arjuna and Aby. These guys served us very well over our 12 day trip. They made... More

The choice of dishes suits all palates and pairing drinks are wonderful too. Every dish is better than the best We hope to return next year and... More

Booked this restaurant as our last family meal following 10 days in Dubai. During our stay we have visited many fine dining and eateries and Amala was heads and shoulders above them all.
