We dined at Amala twice during our stay at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. Food and service was exceptional with dishes that we had never heard of but were more than willing to try. Both times we sat on the outdoor terrace and were very well looked after. We were on the half board option at the JZS and so a... More

A great way to have a relatively inexpensive lunch at this super restaurant, is to learn to cook it yourself. The talented and very friendly head chef Aman Kapoor took us through making starters, main courses, side dishes, breads and dessert, in the beautiful outdoor kitchen overlooking the beach. As part of the fun you get to keep the chef's... More

Another fab meal at Amala. Quality of food and service are both still excellent. We always let the waiter chose the dishes but try the prawns, scallops and dahl Amala. Highly recommend!

We've just enjoyed a wonderful meal at Amala. Sitting outside on a warm evening enjoying very tasty food served by very friendly and helpful staff is amazing. Each dish was delicious and we even managed to get to the Kulfi dessert!! We will be returning again to this restaurant in the next few days. Thank you for an excellent meal.

If you enjoy Indian food served in a timely manner then avoid Amala. On arrival we were greeted by the waiter and told about how the restaurant worked, food will come to the table, if we like it, ask for more and that will follow in 10 minutes. This DID NOT happen, we asked for spicy dishes, they never came,... More
