Cuisine: North Indian:
The Amala is an Indian restaurant that embraces the authentic cuisine of northern India. This is a signature restaurant of the Hotel resort that provides a truly extensive menu that opens people’s minds and taste buds to trying Indian food. This restaurant took upon the concept of bringing people into the restaurant by charging a set price for an a la carte menu, which allows its customers to try on the menu. To have this set fee allows people to try something new that they would not have otherwise tried. The meal you have is like having your own private banquet, you could even order one of everything off of the menu if you wanted, and this would allow your taste buds to pick out something that is to your personal taste.
Whatever takes your fancy is included in the price remember, so you can eat like a king whilst enjoying the natural Indian spices that are enjoyed worldwide but cooked to perfection in Dubai at the Zabeel Saray on Palm Jumeirah, the Palm island.
The restaurant is exquisitely decorated throughout, in regal cream and gold with ornate designed tiles that adorn both walls and the floor, with wrought-iron lamps hanging from the ceiling. This is what we would consider a high end Indian restaurant that intends to provide a high end level of service and authenticity. Concentrating on Mughlai curries, specialities from the Tandoori oven and Biriyanies this is a fantastic opportunity for newbie’s to Indian cuisine as well as the curry connoisseur.
There are many other Indian restaurants around Dubai that are good and come highly recommended, however there are not many Indian restaurants that allow you to sample as many dishes as you can eat for a one off price. The price may seem steep at AED 285 per person until you consider not only does it include spectacular food but also high levels of service in authentic surroundings, inside possibly the most attractive and high end hotel on Palm Jumeirah.
As well as having a beautiful meal in opulent surroundings, the attentive waiters will ensure that your meal is enjoyable and will give you their expert knowledge and opinions on what you may want to order next, or explaining what each delicacy is on the menu and what would best accompany what you have already eaten, to ensure that your taste buds make the most of the Indian spices.
A unique concept for this type of restaurant and well worth the fixed price for unlimited taste possibilities.
