Using a Groupon voucher, I tried the Thali. Food was excellent, and the service good - our plates were re-filled whenever we wished. I will definitely be back.

Visited Amala with wife on Diwali night and it was absolutely a great treat. The hospitality was set right and food enriched with the Mughlai heritage. Being a Delhite, the butter chicken gets my 9/10. As a Diwali surprise, the staff presented us with traditional...More

From the moment you step inside Amala, you'll find the welcome is warm and authentically Indian. The cuisine, known as Mughlai, is strongly influenced by Persia and Turkey and is known for its richness, with exotic spices, dried fruits and cream. Every evening, Amala serves an exceptional a la carte menu where guests are able to order as many dishes as they like at a set price. Dine within the magnificent interiors or outside on the terrace, as you sample the varied flavours of North Indian cuisine through this truly extravagant dining experience.
