We thought we would try something completely different and we are so glad we did. The advantage of a Sunday visit is an all day vegan breakfast that the kids loved (whilst sitting on the floor) and a two and three course offer which the adults took full advantage of (whilst seated). The food was beautifully presented, the service excellent... More

We were 3 bags deep into a 6 strong multipack of Walkers Salt & Vinegar, attempting to get over our disastrous visit to The Eye of The Tiger when we saw Amala's sign from our bus seats and made the split second decision to alight. On arrival the place itself is stunning. Beautiful decor, understated yet attractive lighting and a... More

It's good to find a truly vegan restaurant and I so want to like this little place, but when the service is lacking then it really does spoil the experience, however outstanding the food. When the waitress forgets what you have ordered and the overall attention from all staff is disjointed, then you think twice about going back. Everything we... More

Been to Amala before for breakfast and lover it. I was very excited to visit again for dinner. That's when it went wrong... 1) drinks took half an hour to come 2) the food took over an hour, when questioning the waitress where it was she was shocked as she thought the manager (who took our order) explained that the...

Visited with a party and not at all impressed. Asked for some water and was given a small carafe of warm water for 4 people, which set the tone! Very nice and willing waiter, but he did not seem to have much knowledge of the food. After a very long wait the starter arrived. Seemed to be some very long... More

Had high hopes for this vegan restaurant since its changed hand. Found it had very little imagination. Mushroom burger just a mushroom in a vegan roll. Slightly boring but overall the experience was nice, great dessert but expensive for what it was. I think vegan dining can be a lot more flavoursome and exciting.

A tasty vegan restaurant. Good selection of veggie and fruit smoothies. A more limited choice for hot main courses. The roasted sweet potato dish with chilli tomato sauce was yummy though. Good desserts loved the tapioca and the brownie. Friendly and helpful service.

Established as Zoukinis in 2008 as a vegetarian restaurant, this gem has recently undergone a major facelift and is now called amala. (2016) Amala is now a purely vegan restaurant offering a conscious eating experience with what some would call 'vegan gourmet cuisine' with delicate and robust flavour and texture combinations - all purely plant-based. Whatever it may be, we are committed to offering real food, prepared simply and with love, using organic and local ingredients where possible and practical. Many of our 5 star review mention the friendliness of the staff, the soothing and calming atmosphere (even when we're busy which is more and more!) of the environment and of course - many takes pictures and comment on the delicious food! Most important to us is how YOU FEEL at the end of the MEAL (or experience as we like to call it). That is our focus and our strive. Daniel & the team at amala
