I was excited to meet the Amala restaurant because I love Indian food but was a disappointment! Starting with the terrible service from the hostess and waiters. As lacked 40 minutes for closing the restaurant we felt a tremendous unwillingness to receive us. The waiter just said "Good evening, you need to ask in five minutes, otherwise we cannot serve...

Returned after staying in the exceptional Jumeirah Zabeel a couple of years ago. Amazingly the staff remembered us and even the superb chef came out to say hello. Wonderful evening and in our humble opinion the best Indian Restaurant on the planet, get yourself there or put on your bucket list.

Amazing Indian Food, Great Service. Nice Ambiance and seating. Half Board Vouchers go a long way here: You get a delicious starter: chaats are great A Curry: Dal is a good choice with a naan and rice
