“Wow! Truly amazing experience”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I travel a lot and eat out practically everyday. The experience at Amal was simply amazing, the service so genuine and unpretentious, manager Lawrence is very calm and attentive. Food simply divine...there are so many options for everybody to take their pick. Jitin Joshi is a passionate chef and kudos to the entire team.

“Amazing New Years Eve at Armani Amal”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

What a special way to spend New Years Eve! A stunning experience, started off with an array of white & red Ferraris parked outside (belonging to other guests) which made for a great photo opportunity as I was wearing a red dress and my partner was in a white/cream suit! Gorgeous bar for aperitifs (more lovely photos!) and then the highlight - a sumptuous meal prepared by outstanding chef Vijay Amand who made the evening so special with his personal touch. The food was out of this world; I think that's the first time I've eaten real gold (leaf) on my dinner! The different wines accompanying the courses were so fabulous we simply had to order an extra glass of the red - we have never tasted anything like it (and weren't expecting to be stunned with amazing wines so it was a nice surprise). I have photos of every course as they looked amazing - and tasted even better which was incredible. The impressive fountains to music could be seen from the balcony just 2m away from our dining table. Best bit was speaking to my Mum on the mobile back in the UK who was watching the world-famous fireworks and the Burj Khalifa on TV as I said - "That's where I am - in there surrounded by the fireworks going off with a glass of champers". She could hardly believe me!

“Make a dream happen...”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

If you want to make a dream happen, don't think twice and go to Amal. The complete experience is unforgettable from arriving to welcome drinks, excellent menu recommendations and a beautiful setting. The quality of the food topped both of the occasions we will treasure for a a long time. Looking forward to dreaming again soon...

“Best Indian-fusion in UAE”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Great food, great views, great service. Kitchen is open on one side and is very impressive. ubai Fountain show is on the other...
Staff are friendly and attentive.
Food and wine are superb. Try the lambshank (slow cooked for 8 hours) or anything else. No bad food.
Make sure the bank account is full though as it ain't cheap!
