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.

Booked this restaurant as our last family meal following 10 days in Dubai. During our stay we have visited many fine dining and eateries and Amala was heads and shoulders above them all. The service, ambience and taste was exceptional and our waiter requested that if he chose our menu he will look after us and we won't be disappointed, he lived up to and went above this promise, so much food, variety and each dish had its unique taste and spices, great job Amala, superb!

We heard a lot about this restaurant. So we came and checked if it is really SO good as all our friends are saying.

The quality of the food is extraordinary. The combinations on the plate are fitting perfectly together and the service as well is doing a great job. The glasses are never empty and the wine recomodations together with the food were great.

A big thanks to the team which made our evening special!

Situated within the Zabeel Saray hotel on Palm Jumeirah.
The environment both in summer and winter is excellent...fit for a Raj.
The food quality from the menu buffet is always well cooked, presented and of consistent quality. The buffet from the menu is a great idea and we are regulars as our guests always leave happy with the quality. You can order your favourite dishes as often as you like. The tandoori dishes are a good suggestion. Especially the tandoor King Prawns. The Rogan Josh is flavor full and with excellent quality beef. Bookings of a table on the perimeter is suggested. Great follow up by the managers to ensure you are happy and selecting the best dishes of the day. Certainly will return with my future guest...probably the best Indian restaurant in Dubai.

Just dined at Amala with my husband two teenage boys and a couple of friends. This was a beautiful evening - service and food could not have been better,

All the food was freshly cooked in the kitchen at the side of our table. Cooked to perfection and quality food. We left the choice of dishes to out host and were certainly not disappointed.

Been on holiday in Dubai for 10 days and can honestly say it was the best meal we had

i went with friends and had high (very high) expectations. what got me excited was the photograph on their web site. an awesome dining room. the image, though, is very misleading almost bordering on cruel. the space is dark, overly dark. there is no way to enjoy the design as presented in the image. for me the surroundings are as important as the meal. oh well.

we had the a la carte for a very decent price - can order anything from the menu for as much as you want. a stupendous way to explore the menu (indian and italian are my favourite kitchens). whilst the meal did not disappoint, it wasn't stellar.

we had scallops, crab, kebab, samosa, pomfret, a spinach & lamb curry, and prawns. a very enjoyable meal. there is no taste that stands out much less memorable.

with their 'all you can taste menu' i will certainly visit again. a friend of mine (from mumbai) has been there almost 20 times. proof, i suppose, that they do a capable meal.

in short - solid, dependable, quality but not fine dining.
