Staying at an amazing hotel and sampling a new world-class restaurant each night, it's hard to find something that stands out, but this is just what we found in Amala. What a wonderful experience we had this evening. The food has set new standards for what we expect from an Indian meal. Absolutely stunning, perfect portion sizes and charmingly presented... More

We have stayed at the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray for 5 days and the service and food at the Amala restaurant within the Zabeel complex has been outstanding, especially from Banwari.

Menu was very limited. and service was slow. The Ambiance was good but food was not. We also went to Naya another Indian... More

My family and I went for a casual dinner at Amala last Wednesday and it was our first time. The first impression lasted the whole night and every act of kindness by the waitstaff (Preejesh and Amid) only enhanced it. The served food was exquisite, and to be specific, the deserts were incredible! With the environment and all reaching a... More

We have been to this restautant many times during our stay in Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. The food was excellent, and so was the service thanks to Sonu. I would rate it 10/10 and would definitley recommend it to anyone.

Food was delicious but the service was very slow. Even for the dessert I had to wait for 30 minutes. Staffs were polite but they were not keeping us updated on the order status. The dinner occasion was for my wife birthday and they were not even bothered to wish her. (any small restaurants would do that)

Amala serves authentic Indian food and in copious amounts. The starters are delicious and pampers your tongue with a homely taste and essence. The desserts are amazing and mouthwatering. Staff welcomes you with a warm smile and enthusiasm. Mr. Sonu waited on us and was flexible with our demands and service was very decent. Amala leaves you with a fine... More

From the moment you step inside Amala, you'll find the welcome is warm and authentically Indian. The cuisine, known as Mughlai, is strongly influenced by Persia and Turkey and is known for its richness, with exotic spices, dried fruits and cream. Every evening, Amala serves an exceptional a la carte menu where guests are able to order as many dishes as they like at a set price. Dine within the magnificent interiors or outside on the terrace, as you sample the varied flavours of North Indian cuisine through this truly extravagant dining experience.
