We bought Groupon coupon for lunch and visited Amala on Friday. The restaurant has nice ambience and facility of outdoor seating overlooking water and greenery. The set menu of starters and main course was delicious. We were offered 2 drinks per person. The staff was friendly and service was very good. Overall very good experience of five star lunch.

From food to service to ambiance, it's brilliant. Tandoori dishes are delicious and Banwari makes you feel so welcome. He is a great guy who deserve to be recognised and appreciated for his services. Had dinner twice already but would love to go again.

One of the best Indian restaurants I have ever visited. Both the staff and food are of the highest quality. From the moment you are greeted at the door and personally seated, you are given the best of service. Would highly recommend the tandoor chicken

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.
