The food here is great and I'm looking forward to going back! The service on the other hand is astonishingly poor when compared to our last two visits in 2016. I believe the owner was working in the restaurant last year and her presence made a huge difference. This year I would recommend this restaurant simply because the food is... More

My first visit to Lotus la Malaguena, but most definitely not my last. Based on a friends recommendation we decided to try Lotus last night. We arrived early (19:15) and we were the only guests, but by 20:30, all six indoor tables and the bar were full. We decided to start with the poppadum basket (€ 2.00), 2 poppadums accompanied...

Great Indian restaurant in mijas pueblo . The chicken tikka served on the hot plate was really good . Only complaint was we had to sit inside due to the roadworks and it was very warm

Yummy vegetable curries, garlic nan breads following super vegetable samosas and onion bhajis. A godsend when the staple tourist menus leave you uninterested in eating.

We were really looking forward to our meal at this place but came away feeling disappointed. The food tasted fine but the veg pakora wasn't what I understand by veg pakora. The chicken tikka masala was ok but the sauce seemed ready made. If you are on holiday and looking for an authentic Indian meal then I'd advise you to... More

Well worth a visit, lovely food, the best ban bread I have has anywhere, but you will need to reserve a table in the summer months.

We have been coming here for a few years & was recently here in June. I have never had a bad meal here, everything is superb, the staff are polite and attentive & the food simply delicious! The portions are the perfect size, so you have enough room for a starter & main. You will definitely see us here again... More
