“Incredible Indian feast at Amal at the Armani in Dubai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

I have travelled to many places around the globe and experienced Indian cuisine at it's best however I wish to congratulate the Armani culinary team for giving us an incredible Indian feast. Specialty chef Jitin and his team created some extraordinary Indian fare. This is the place to be to sample truly delightful authentic Indian cuisine - great food, excellent service and the ambience spectacular. I would recommend Amal at the Armani for a night to remember!

“Amazing Haute Indian Cuisine at Amal Armani”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

A lovely, lovely dining experience from A to Z. I enjoyed everything about my first time at Amal, from the amazing setting (I was graciously moved from nice indoor table next to the huge plate-glass windows to a table on the terrace that had just freed up) to the impeccable service to the best Indian meal I've had to date.

I had the tasting menu; highly recommended, with beautiful, tender, sublimely seasoned fish, lamb, chicken, and vegetarian mini-dishes. Amal does have an a la carte menu as well, and I'm sure individual dishes -- many the same as on Indian restaurant menus around the world -- are great as well, but the tasting menu really did seem to be the best of the best. I mentioned the great service and just want to add that my "main" waiter, Arun, was perfect: there whenever needed but never hovering. His colleagues were all great as well.

I don't think one could ever go wrong at Amal, but do try to get a table on the terrace if possible (and before Dubai's super-hot and -humid summer begins in earnest). The setting -- third floor of the Burj Khalifa, looking either straight up at the world's tallest building, or upon the BK Lake and fountains -- is wonderful, but the cuisine and service star at Amal.

I can't recommend dining at Amal more highly -- it's very expensive but completely worth it, and it ranks among the best meals I've had anywhere in the world.

Our experience was absolutely excellent. Food presentation was awesome and food simply delicious. Instantly one of our top indian restaurants in the entire city with a great atmosphere.
Exquisite indian cuisine coupled with the best service and location, we enjoyed the last Dubai Fountain show from our table. We had a great time.

“TOP NOTCH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Amazing view of the fountain. excellent service and incomparable food. Chef Jitin combines the most authentic tastes & spices with contemporary cooking style and presentation. Well balanced menus with variety for all. The Egg plants, Lentils and the Lamb are winners. Good selection of drinks and good value for money.
will surely visit again.

WELL DONE.

“best indian in dubai.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

dined at amal for my girlfriends...amazing.. from the moment you walk in the cool armani hotel from the time you leave,
service was top class, we went for the tasting menu, and asked one of the restaurant managers if they could pair it with the wines, with they did no problem,, superbly!
the tasting menu is among one of the best weve had, and ive been lucky to eat at lots a mitchlin star restaurants around the world, my opinion this would be 2 star, if they had mitchlin guide in dubai,
the head chef even come out for a chat as weve eaten at some of the restaurants he has been before, without knowing, so thought that was a nice touch,
try and get a sit outside though, just me your see what i mean,
they even went out there way to make a birthday cake, and make it special,
top class restaurant,...cocktails good to.
