Description: 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.

I dined at Amala recently. I had heard good reviews about the restaurant and I was eager to try it out.

I thoroughly enjoy the manner in which the staff almost take over the ordering for you. This is brilliant especially if you are in a larger group.

The food was very good and some of the dishes were quite unique. The staff on the night had a bit of difficulty getting our orders out in time. I suspect that they were having a bad night and that this is not a regular occurrence. I am willing to cut them some slack. I would definitely recommend Amala to anyone.

A bit late with this review but better late than never, i visited amala lately during the diwali promotion and what a great pleasure it was to dine in at one of the classy restaurants in dubai so far. The traditional music was exceptional, was enjoying every bit of it. Food is out of the world, i remember the sea bass and lamb chops were fantastic..something worth dying for and my compliments to the chef.. service staff was very knowledgeable and friendly..made me a best selection in which everything was perfect and would not forget to mention Ankush who acted as a cherry on the cake. despite being a busy night took time to chit-chat and didnt let us realised the delay in food. all in all, i recommend this restaurant to everyone out there. Very good food and service. must go if your an indian food lover but with a modern touch to it.
Thank you

Those were the words of my 17 year old son after we had tried the eat all you can for AED285 menu. There were approx six different starters for the three of us and we ordered the veg samosas three times because they were so good............we had plenty of choice for the main courses and my son ordered specific curries, which the chef was happy to produce. We had little room for dessert!! The staff were very attentative, whilst not being OTT and we would not hesitate to return.
