went for dinner last night. I had curried chicken and wife had shrimp in a spinach sauce. We both loved our meals . One of the best Indian food we have had. Services was good but was not too crowded. The place is in a mall ( same place as Mastro's ) but in a little alcove so easy to... More

We really enjoyed our meal. I had chicken tikka masala, delicious. Hubby had the lamb, very tender. Even though it was busy the service was quick and the staff very friendly. It is a bit pricey, but worth it.

We dined at this restaurant a year ago and were underwhelmed but decided to try again and we were pleasantly surprised. Like many other reviewers have stated, the restaurant was nearly empty at 7:30 PM which is never a good sign but it was a Tuesday. The samosa were very good but were not accompanied by any chutney which I... More

We had a Groupon so decided to try it out. Based on other reviews, they said the food was great - but very slow. I had to disagree with reviews on the staff - our waiter was very attentive and engaging. We would definitely return - the food was great but be prepared to wait for it. My husband had... More

We pass by this area a lot and use the other restaurants nearby and wondered why this place is always empty. Several TA reports the same. So we stopped In during the week and there were 3 tables taken. Menu is easy, options on hot levels offered. Service from the female waitress was good. Portions are tiny, expensive for what... More

For those in a mood to experiment or with a yen for curried and spicy Indian food, Al Hamra will satisfy. The food is properly prepared and presented, and the wait staff is attentive and helpful. An abundance of empty tables suggests few in North Scottsdale have an affinity for this kind of food.

I discovered Al Hamra via a LivingSocial advertisement. Or likely I'd never have found it given how it's tucked away in a shopping complex in a part of North Scottsdale I might not often get to as a visitor. It's a very well appointed room. But, as the other reviewers have said, it's often almost empty. I've been there three... More

We walked in at 7:30pm last Saturday & we should've walked out. We were the only ones there for the next 30 minutes. It's the only Indian restaurant I've been to where you don't get naan for free. So, we ordered the Garlic naan. It did not come with any dip or anything, but it was decent. Variety of choices... More

I have enjoyed Indian food in many countries including India and this restaurant is above average for the area. Indian food tends to be regional and this cuisine is similar to Northern India. I think that the owner is from Pakistan

The female waitress treated us as if we were a bother, was very forgetful, and she was verging on rude at times, otherwise the food was pretty good, although my lamb was overdone. The place was not busy, we were the only table for over half an hour. Portions are good, although it is not possible to order many vegetables... More
