Arrived on a Rainy Sunday Evening. After Jala opened, we were promptly seated and attended to. Service was excellent throughout. Rain did startup and when the wind blew we did get 'sprayed' but that's open dining at the beach for you! Perused the a-la carte menu and promptly ordered the Jalaksa, Grouper and Black Angus Striploin. Was served bread with... More

this was our favourite restaurant at the Andaman. The location was stunning, the sand under our feet. Wonderful staff, who helped us choose our fish from the counter & advised on cooking methods. Nothing was to much trouble

A superb restaurant which provided another splendid evening for us, but this time for our son as well. The seafood is fresh and succulent; the condiments perfect in terms of their being mouthwatering complements to the main dishes. Great service and beautiful surroundings! What more could one ask?

The food, wine, ambience and service was so good that we ate here twice. If we had of tried Jala earlier during our stay then we would have eaten here more often. This was by far the best dining experience at the Andaman resort. On both occasions, we chose to select our own seafood from the display instead of ordering... More

During our stay in the Andaman, we went twice to this restaurant. For me and my family it is clearly our favourite restaurant of the hotel.

We opted to check out Jala for our first dinner at the Andaman, but to be honest, nothing on the menu really stood out for us. However, we did decide to give it a go all the same, and ordered a seafood salad and Jalaksa (Jala's interpretation of a seafood laksa), which were both appetizers. The seafood salad arrived under...
