Amulya – Tandoori Restaurant


Amidst a landscape of a number of well established competitors such as, Bombay Palace, Rang Mahal, and many others comes a new kid on the block. Amulya is a brand new Indian restaurant set up by a young restaurateur, Aki, as his maiden business venture.

Its location is in a slightly off centre part of Gadong where the Aifa showroom and service center is located. A Thai restaurant used to occupy the premises and so the kitchen underwent some renovations to suit the tandoor cooking.

One of the unique features of this restaurant is the B$2.00 free flow coke and lemon tea, which Aki says was inspired by Nando’s while he was studying in UK. Incidentally, Aki graduated with a Masters degree from Hongkong and speaks surprisingly fluent Mandarin!

We were invited to try out some of the dishes on offer, which included mutton biryani, chicken tikka, and tandoori chicken served with a lovely raita and different types of naans. The food was pretty good but perhaps needs to be tweaked a little to suit local tastebuds. The chefs are directly imported from Kolkata you see, and they have not had much time to tweak their specialties as yet. Service-wise, the restaurant is manned by a crew which is new and eager to please, so I have high expectations of them.

Amulya opens on Friday in time for Ramadhan with a special buffet. If you like Indian cuisine, do give them a try this Ramadhan!
