“Definately the best indian food around!”
Reviewed 14 April 2010

I was born and raised in Bradford so am constantly disappointed with the bland and ubiquitous 'indian' food served in so called indian restaurants. Take it from me, this is the real mcoy. Everything here is freshly prepared and authentic. If you like the 'gloopy' flourescent sauces served in many a takeaway maybe this is not the place for you but if you are looking for something tasty and a bit different, then the Malabar is it. Service is friendly. Reservations needed for busy times as the place is very small.

“Indian friends recommended it, tastey with very nice nan bread”
Reviewed 10 April 2010

We've been a couple of times - the food is good, and the nun bread is nice and soft. Its a small place, about ten tables seating only about 30 people, with quite an informal atmosphere.

According to several Indian friends, it has the best tasting Indian food in the area - although to us there is very little to choose between the food at the Malaba and say the Dil Se.

Reviewed 8 April 2010

Great Indian restaurant from which we have had take aways and also sat in. The take aways are just as good as sitting in which is something I find very unusual.

Closed on a Monday - open 5.30 pm - 10.00 every other night.

Range of dishes - mostly originating from the Kerala region of India - not your usual curries. Each dish is very different with very differing flavours and ingredients.

In my opinion, one of the better (if not the best) Indian's in Dundee.

May I recommend the Konju (king prawns) which is available in mild, medium or hot.

“Excellent Food and service.”
Reviewed 18 February 2010

The Malabar is a real hidden gem of a restaurant. My wife and I and our friends have been going there for a year or so and i recently noticed it wasn't on Tripadvisor. The menu is very original and the food and service excellent. (The meat Sag Gosh is highly recommended.) Highly recommended if you like Indian cuisine.
