Think the last few recent reviews were for a different place!! this was a great dining experience. Staff, ambience, decor and food to a truly high standard. We were using half board vouchers and in no way treated as lesser guests, from being greeted to being served all the staff were excellent,helpful and informative,the aroma as our food arrived at...

Was very excited to come here but despite the ambiance and service the food remains the main consideration for a restaurant ... and the food was appalling. Worst king prawns ever. Well once in Ukraine was comparable. Worst lamb curry ever. Was so disappointed as was a special dinner for our anniversary

Visited the restaurant last week and had an ok dining experience. Ambience was good and restaurant decor was first class. The food however was ok, average nothing to rave about. Luckily we were on the half board so had the option of trying various different dishes. The veg option was good,Daal, aloo gobi etc, however the chicken dishes lacked flavour... More

Stunning venue, wonderful food, friendly and highly efficient staff. Our waiters Ishan & Saroj were charming, extremely proud of the food and took time to explain the menu and various dishes. We noted that the Outlet Manager, Surin, walked the floor and took the time to engage and speak with the diners. This dedicated team are clearly determined to keep... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Amala and would definitely return. We were slightly overfaced with the amount of food on the table (we were given a number of complimentary dishes to try in addition to our order). If staying half board at the Zabeel Saray you could easily get away with using two vouchers between three people for example.... More

Our family of 4 enjoyed the most fantastic banquet of delicious Indian food. The menu was suggested by our waiter who promised he wouldn't disappoint us with his selection. He kept his promise, as plates after plates of delights were brought to our table. The staff were exceptional and service just as good as the food. Definitely worth a visit... More
