You can perhaps expect nothing less than a stylish experience from an Armani-backed restaurant, but the aesthetics and total attention to detail at Armani/Amal make it one of very few truly 'fine' Indian dining experiences in Dubai. Located inside the Burj Khalifa, the dinning space mirrors the tower's curves, with a large open kitchen space to one side of the room, and a terrace with atmospheric views on the other. Enter an ante-room designed like the rusty-coloured courtyard of a Rajasthani palace, and at the entrance to the restaurant, staff welcome you with a mocktail concoction of the day. From here, a tone of excellent, attentive and friendly service is set. Exploring the menu, you'll find a selection of creative modern Indian dishes, all elegantly presented, and beautifully prepared. To really to get to grips with the selection available, try one of the several tasting menus listed. Finally, as the meal ends, female guests may well find themselves in for a few surprises with complimentary gifts the final touch to a great experience.
Open daily 7pm-11pm. Armani Hotel Dubai, Burj Khalifa (04 888 3444).
