AMAL, ARMANI HOTEL, DUBAI
Enjoy dinner with a view. The world-famous fountains have attracted tourists from all over the world, but no view of the water show is better than from the balcony of Amal restaurant.
The complimentary food is worth paying for. Free poppadums are served to all diners with three heavenly-tasting sauces – mint, crushed garlic and chilli tomato. Even the amuse-bouche, which is on the house, will have you tipping heavily!
Hedge your bets with a tasting menu. Amal gives you three set menus to choose from, which ensures you can try a bit of almost everything on offer. Those who prefer eating light should be warned that this probably isn’t for you.
The daal is delicious. One of Amal’s best features is its accompanying dishes. The daal comes in both yellow and black varieties, which serve as ideal partners for the mains.
Bread is more than a staple food. With four different naans and an assortment of rotis and kulchas, you’ll need to save extra space to clean your plate with these baked beauties!
