Description: 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.

We stayed at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray for five days and had dinner at Amala, one of the hotel's seven restaurants, on our first evening. In brief, we were very impressed by the service at the restaurant. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and the chef specially prepared a gluten-free and lactose-free starter, main course and dessert for my wife. Strongly recommended if you are into Indian food!

We have visited this restaurant many times, on our usually at least annual, trips to Dubai - we usually upgrade our Jumeirah Flavours to the full tasting menu, as we did on this occasion.
We both felt that overall the service was pretty poor - for example hot plates were put down in front of us with the comment “your starters will be with you in 2 minutes” - it was probably closer to 15mins before they arrived. The starters are usually the stars of the show, they usually provide the “wow” factor - in our view on this occasion they were pretty uninspiring, mainly a restricted mix from the Tandoor.
Similarly the main courses seemed to be more about quantity rather than quality, - overall we were a bit disappointed - not badly enough to complain - but not sufficiently impressed to go back again - we will look elsewhere for Indian food on our future visits to Dubai.

One of the many restaurants at this hotel. We dined here on the first night of our one week stay on “The Palm”
The hotel offers a half board option and this restaurant is included (not signature dishes). We had some starters, lamb kebabs and fish of the day, two lamb mains, rice, naan and I finished with a sorbet. Service was attentive, the food certainly not tasteless as described by another, it was very good and nicely presented. The UAE is not cheap, a bottle of still water here is £6. I would recommend this restaurant although dining here if you were paying would be mean many ££, a main course dish around £50. They do a tasting menu for around £60 per head. Certainly worth a visit.

Location is fantastic and food is also good. I would recommend to go for lunch and have outside seating arrangement near railing to have best view. You can also enjoy the beach while in the Jumeirah zabeel saray.
