A1 was sold to us as one of the best curry eateries in Malawi, and it didn't disappoint. Quick service by polite staff, an excellent menu and all our dishes were extremely tasty. Our medium dish was more on the mild side though - Azungu spicing perhaps?! Very highly recommended.

Our group of 8 were visiting Mzuzu for over a week and staying at an inn that did not serve dinner. It was hard to find food that was different than the local cuisine we had been eating every day for lunch. We were so pleased to run across this Indian restaurant.

We arrived hungry and were delighted with the service and quality of the food. The starters are large...so maybe share one! We took food home with us a portions are very generous and enjoyed again the next day

Enjoyed several large group dinners at this restaurant in Mzuzu. We were typically about 10 of us. Delicious Indian and Malawian food along with tasty chicken braai. Robust menu with a lot of choices and fresh tasting meals. Wait staff could be a little more polished. I will go back there some day!

I always try & eat in the A1 restaurant at night when in Mzuzu. Really good curries, and excellent value for money. Staff attentive, and make you feel most welcome.
