We waited for about 10 minutes for our turn to be seated as the hostess was busy attending 2 groups ahead of us. Once inside we were given the option of either sitting on one of the corner tables between... More

The restraunt was gorgeous and the food was superb.The atmosphere in the restraunt was great.A lovely family atmosphere and the staff were great as my daughters are fussy eaters and they ordered pizzas from a different restraunt to be delivered so they could eat with us .

While staying at the Zabeel Saray, using our HB vouchers we ate at Amala twice. Both times the service and food were amazing. There is a good range of all courses on the menu so the second time we tried different dishes. I think my personal favorite was the butter chicken which was very tasty and not greasy like you...

We recently visited this restaurant as a party of six. The food and service were both excellent. For starters the Tandoori Chicken and Onion Bhaji's are some of the nicest we have experienced before. All the main courses were delicious, the Rogan Josh & Jalfrezi in particular were very good. The service was also impressive. This was our second visit... More

I booked this restaurant for my Wife's birthday and was very impressed with the service. I would like to thank the staff and Manager for organising the surprise complimentary birthday cake and rad malai dessert which was a surprise to me as well! We will be back again on our next trip to Dubai.

Great starters, but poor mains, especially for vegetarians. Need to update their menu online so it matches the one in their restaurant!

This used to be a favorite restaurant of mine... Sadly has gone downhill compared to our previous visits... Much better options available in the city... Not worth the drive too

This is a must when visiting or staying at the hotel. Chef Aman is by far a truly magnificent chef. I believe it is north Indian cuisine. The service is fantastic and if you don't know what to order they will recommend dishes for you. The Lamb chops are to die for.
