I have never been to this restaurant before but from the pictures on... More

We had been to two other outlets in the hotel - Plaj and Voda Bar but it was our first visit to any of its fine dining outlets.... More

Staying at an amazing hotel and sampling a new world-class restaurant each night, it's hard to find something that stands out, but this is just what we found in Amala. What a wonderful experience we had this evening. The food has set new standards for what we expect from an Indian meal. Absolutely stunning, perfect portion sizes and charmingly presented... More

He has been so kind and looked after my parents with the upmost care. He has directed us to superb items on the menu and always greeted us with such... More

Menu was very limited. and service was slow. The Ambiance was good but food was not. We also went to Naya another Indian... More

My family and I went for a casual dinner at Amala last Wednesday and it was our first time. The first impression lasted the whole night and every act of kindness by the waitstaff (Preejesh and Amid) only enhanced it. The served food was exquisite, and to be specific, the deserts were incredible! With the environment and all reaching a... More
