Overall it was good. The margeretta was not done properly for three times (either the ingredients or the bartender was not right). The food was good. The ambiance was good. I will come again for sure.

Lunch on the restaurant patio was perfect for pandemic times. The patio is a level above the street, offering a much nicer view and location than so many street-side arrangements. The outdoor furnishings were modern and stylish, providing a pleasant ambience for an outdoor location. The servers were very attentive. The price point was reasonable. Most importantly, the food was a delicious, nicely presented, upscale version of the usual middle eastern fare.

One of the very few halal restaurants with great ambiance. Food was average, apps and desserts are better than mains.

MUSLIMS BEWARE! All though this is an Arab restaurant dining here as a Muslim who doesn’t drink alcohol I guess isn’t ideal. They’re mocktail selection is 2 drinks… which none of us found appeasing. The waiter was a sweetheart but we were not even looked at after we’re seated and it was established we weren’t getting drinks. It was a very busy day but we had to stop random staff for things and we waited an 30 mins with our menus closed ready to order. Beautiful resteraunt the food was okay but I think it had more to do with my choices as the menus weren’t explained. He didn’t even give us our bill but had another person do it. I have been here before with some of my friends who do drink and we got a completely different service and experience. Probably won’t be back… first time in my life receiving such poor service left a bad taste in my mouth.

The ambiance here is absolutely stunning! Probably one of the most picturesque restaurants in Toronto! Service was friendly and prompt. Food and drinks weren’t the best but I’d still recommend making the trip down to Amal for the scenery alone!! Worth mentioning they charge for water like flat tap water… thought that was kind of strange…

First time at amal and overall a very positive experience! The restaurant is beautiful inside and the menu is packed with unique dishes. The truffle rakakat and grilled branzino were outstanding! The drinks were all made with unique ingredients and crafted at a visibly high quality. Server was extremely friendly and provided great service!

Amal is the perfect restaurant for having a good time. The concept of sharing just as we would in a Middle Eastern home is quite soothing when you live away from family and always a really fun treat when trying to introduce friends to my culture. 10/10 service and would highly recommend!

The food was delicious! One of the best middle eastern restaurants I have been to. Our waitress (Asma) was lovely and the other wait staff were also very friendly and attentive. The portions are on the smaller side, especially for the apps. We decided to order a number of apps rather than individual meals and were very happy with our choice. The truffle rakakat is a must and the kibbeh was great!
