We ate twice at Amala during our recent family holiday. We have not eaten here for 2 years however the service and standard of cuisine remains outstanding. One real plus this year is the Amala has no supplement on top of the half board vouchers which was a real winner for us. As with previous visits and reviews we chose... More

The king size Tiger prawns, lamb chops and chicken tandoor are fabulous! But the tandoor Aberdeen Angus is shear delight. Ishane will look after you and will try to make you sample items on the menu that you might like.... His aim is for you to have a most memorable meal cooked to the highest of standards.

Came here whilst on holiday. The food was brilliant and the service excellent. They cannot do enough for you - particularly Prajeesh who was our waiter. He was very professional and his service was without any flaws. We wish that we were treated more like this in the UK! Would recommend to anyone looking to have excellent Indian cuisine!

On our first night we tried this restaurant and was so impressed that we had to visit again before leaving to come home. Honestly, the service and food was absolutely impeccable. I would like to highlight our server, Prajeesh who was so... More

Visited with my husband and daughter during our week long stay in Dubai as we wanted a nice Indian dinner. It was also our daughter's fourth birthday. The restaurant is located within the hotel which is gorgeous and glamorous. It was very dark inside which was relaxing and atmospheric. It is spotlessly clean and the staff are very attentive possibly... More

We made a reservation for this restaurant as we were told it was the best. I am not too adventurous with my curry choices so my sister and I had chicken korma with rice and peshwari Naans. This had to be the worst korma I have ever tasted in my life. Not sure if it was chicken that I was... More

This was the first restaurant we visited on our first stay in Dubai and we were not disappointed. We love Asian food and whilst not very adventurous, we were delighted to see on the menu something for each of is, my wife, my son and I. The restaurant is small exquisitely designed and not at all what you would expect... More
