Amala 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 savory 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 flavors are always well-balanced. Naans are also good, they recommend the peshwari for a fruity, sweeter option.
