“A Successful Blend of taste, service, scenery and luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Nowadays fusion food is popular amongst many top quality restaurants. Whilst some cuisines (such as French and Japanese) blend together well and to the delight of many gourmet gurus, some exotic Asian dishes (e,g, Indian) refused to sit together in the same plate with food suited to milder European tastes. To us this seemed an insurmountable barrier until we found Amal in Armani Hotel. This was helped in no small extent by the excellent service of the floor staff, especially the manager who came to table and seemed genuinely interested in our comments. Our experience with his service was the reason why we decided there and then that if ever we passed through Dubai again we shall stay at Armani.

Not only was the food magnificant but also was the unique location of the restaurant. It overlooked the vast fountain at the foot of Burj Khalifa and therefore every half an hour we were treated to a series of fountain displays. There was even one display that synced with a Cantonese song. Hearing it blasting into the warm evening air all over Dubai was quite eerie.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Amal is centrally located and convenient, to add to that the food is brilliant and the ambience is spot on, great place to meet the cream of the crowd. If you looking for a midweek night cap, this is the place for you with an outstanding view of the fountain

“Incredible experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I chose this restaurant as the number 1 on trip adviser in Dubai was closed till August. I was not disappointed. The food was incredible. The waiter was more than happy to help direct me to the popular and authentic items. I also had a great viewing of the Dubai Fountains. Throughout my dinner I was able to view 3-4 shows which are set to music which is played throughout the restaurant. The balcony was closed for eating (it was HOT and Ramadan) but I was allowed out to see the show. Everything was delicious and everyone was very attentive. The chef came out to see if I enjoyed the food as well as the manager. I had a great time. The only negative comment was it took a while to get my check and I had to tell my waiter twice I would like it. I think I was having a difficult time making myself clear that I was ready to go so finally I directly asked for it. I was given not only my check but also a rose and some dates. It was a nice touch.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

From the panoramic views over the Dubai Fountains through to the live music that welcomes you upon arrival, the ambience is simply superb.

The food is exquisite with the chef keeping a close eye over the quality of the dishes. I could not recommend this place enough.
