We went to Amala on the basis of the good reviews on tripadviser. Unfortunately, it did not live up to it for a number of reasons: - no a la carte menu - bland "out of the packet" lassi and sorbets - poor quality lamb - average selection of main courses / starters etc... We have been to many indian... More

A good night out with friends. The food- lovely starters and tandoori. Breads are great too and you can order garlic naan which isn't on the menu. The curries were tasty but they could've been warmer in temperature. Dessert were good too, a huge variety. A/C- take a jumper, it's pretty cold! Overall, really tasty, enjoyable night out.

We visited Amala based on reviews and we're not disappointed. Very tasty Indian food. Please be informed that they don't have a la carte option. A three course meal is AED 220 but is well worth it. Starters are yummy especially the Paneer tikka and Aloo tikki. Rotis were not that great and a little burnt. But everything else was... More
