Amala, Dubai Amala - The Palm Jumeirah - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Amala is a regally beautiful restaurant in the luxurious Jumeirah Zabeel Saray.
It 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 savoury 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 flavours are always well-balanced. Naans are also good, they recommend the peshwari for a fruity, sweeter option.
