We ate here whilst staying in the Zabeel Saray in the summer. As a lover of Indian food I had been looking forward to eating at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint! Being vegetarian and my husband not, there was plenty to chose from for both of us and the knowledgeable waiter was helpful in ordering us a few little... More

We dined here twice during our week long stay and really enjoyed the food and service. We are strict vegetarians for which Amala caters very well. Ravi did an excellent job of looking after us throughout our meal on the first night and Arvind did the same on the 4th night. The only dish we ate that could do with... More

My husband and I hadn't managed to get out just the two of us for a very long time so when he spent a lot of time researching where to go for a good Indian meal together he was very disappointed when we sat down to eat at Amala. The hotel is impressive and the setting lovely but the food... More

Amala is a trip to Indian mughlai cuisine. Approaching it through ornate trappings of Hotel Zabeel Saray that can only be found in UAE is like entering a fairyland. Done in authentic Indian setting, the restaurant is spacious, royal and beautiful. The food is good with plenty of variety and served piping hot, though the portion size is rather small... More

The staffs are attentive and knowledgeable. I had butter chicken and my partner had chicken tikka masala, both were delicious and beautifully presented. The complimentary, chicken, lamb and prawn from the grill... More

We took a taxi from Al Qasr to the Indian restaurant at the Zabeel Saray on the Palm. This was the best meal we had using our Summer Flavours half board vouchers. The mixed starter chosen by the chef was the best we have eaten and we are big Indian food fans. We were given a complimentary glass of sparkling... More

We have now eaten at Amala on four occasions whilst staying at the Zabeel Saray. Every time the quality of service and food has been outstanding. I recommend eating outside with comfortable widely spaced tables rather than inside which personally I feel is dark and oppressive. Forget trying to order for yourselves. The best way is to inform the very... More
