Time Out Says
Amala is a grand restaurant, with high ceilings, pretty tiling and water features throughout. Outdoors, however, is where you want to sit, where there’s a royal palace garden vibe (like much of the rest of the Zabeel Saray) surrounded by greenery. Food isn’t as expensive as you might think, either. The bill won’t be cheap, but for a set price you can order unlimited amounts of anything you like, and the food (North Indian) is so good that you’ll be tempted to ask for more of everything. The fish tikka of Nile perch is a particular highlight, with delicate, flaky flesh, fragrantly marinated in cardamom seeds, turmeric and Kashmir red chili, but the lamb seekh kebab is absolutely standout. Juicy, bursting with flavour,with a mint and coriander chutney that’s incredibly moreish. Amala keeps things authentic (and you’ll even find some Indian grape on the menu), so you won’t find much by way of creativity or fusion food. But the flavours are spot on, the staff extra friendly and eager for you to have an excellent experience, and you’ll feel you got your money’s worth by the end of the meal.
