Amala

Indian & Pakistani

  • Amala
Amala is a regally beautiful restaurant in the luxurious Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. It feels authentic and has a varied menu, with choices of curries, biryanis and meats from the tandoor oven. There’s also plenty to keep vegetarians happy. The food is beautifully presented, but you won’t get big bowls full of curry here – this is more refined dining. Try the mixed chaat starter, a delightful combination of pastries, with potato, tomato, lentil and savoury vermicelli that all have a kick to them. For something different and with more subtle spicing, go for the pahhadi murgh tikka (chicken marinated with nuts and cheese with egg white). There are many inviting and creative main courses, but for something traditional try the peppery chicken dish tandoor murgh kali mirch, or lamb biryani. The food here is cooked perfectly and spices and flavours are always well-balanced. Naans are also good, we recommend the peshwari for a fruity, sweeter option. As is fitting for the opulent surroundings, you get well looked after in Amala. Amala

    Bought a voucher and was somewhat sceptical/apprehensive about using it (previous experiences were okay) coupled with the fact that I was taking my younger sister there to try the Thali. My misgivings were totally mistaken, the afternoon that I spent at Amala last weekend was outstanding. The service was attentive without being intrusive and the food was heavenly. The setting on the terrace was beautiful, overlooking the gardens and the beach beyond. There were other families with younger children seated nearby and the staff accomodated everyone alike. I wouldn't hesitate in nomintaing this restaurant for a Time Out Best Indian Restaurant Award it deserves 5 out of 5 in every category - my sister and I were overwhelmed by the surroundings, the taste (highly recommend the butter chicken) and the generosity of the staff in explaining the concept of the thali and patiently listening to our requests. Will definitely visit again. Thank you for a superb afternoon.

    I called up the restaurant to inquire about the Amala Restuarant for the 31, December and the person who picked up the phone bluntly answered that Amala Restaurant is not operational for new years!! I questioned if it was sold out, he again said no they are not operational on that day.
    WoW Then why mention about Amala New Years Events here!!

    Continuing the reviews as below...Amala is highly recommended for the first time visitor..innovative concept, excellent food choice (and taste), classy decor and an endless menu, spiced up by brilliant service and a jovial & ready to assist manager/staff..

    all in all, a must go.
