Description: 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

My boyfriend and I decided to check out Zoukinis after hearing such good reviews and were not disappointed! The restaurant is furnished with a Middle Eastern theme and had a lovely atmosphere. The staff were attentive and happy to assist with any menu queries. The menu offers a great selection with a choice of either main meals or tapas. We had trouble deciding so went with the Quiche of the day served with salad and sweet potato chips and a selection of tapas. Everything was delicious!! and the portions were very generous. We have already planned to try out the breakfast menu and the Thali evening. I can also recommend the Ginger and Lime Mojito yum yum!!

Dear Holly and Terry
Thank you for your kind words, we do try to offer a varied menu to suit all taste, however this can sometimes be a bit of a chore when it comes to choosing what to eat, just means that you'll have to come back and work your way through the menu.
As for the spiced rum and ginger mojito, I can honestly say that took a lot of testing to get it just right, but I think we got there in the end!! Jolly good choice on your part!

Visited this restaurant in evening and found food excellent. Not a vegetarian myself but loved the varied choice of interesting food.
Had lasagne which was lovely and husband enjoyed the curry. Staff were very friendly and also provided some pasta for my young son to eat.
A lovely restaurant well worth visiting would definitely go again.

Had a great experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff was very cordial. The food was exceptional, which is saying a lot since I'm neither a vegan or vegetarian. If you're going to Bournemouth make sure you stop Zoukinis.

Really lovely food in a very relaxed atmosphere. Very pleased to find a menu with all my veggie favourites - normally only have a choice of one or two things I like when we go out to dinner. Nice wine too!
