Description: Chowka Indian Kitchen on the Golden Mile, Marbella reopened on the 6th March 2014 after the winter season with a wider menu including new traditional favourites to add to the modern Indian cuisine for which it has become known. Try beautifully prepared modern and traditional dishes in the gorgeous surroundings. You can have a cocktail or a Lassie at the bar, relax on the terrace, sit under relaxing twinkling lights inside, or even have a large group on one of the butchers tables.

“Tastiest Indian food I've had in a long time!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Honestly, every course was made fresh and everything was so well presented. Fantastic pakora and a very wide range of mains. I had the Jalfrezi myself which was delicious. One of the most impressive things about the meal were the tablet-towels at the end...go yourself to find out ;)

“Changed (for the better).”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We tried Chowka again after a very disappointing first visit (as we had been told it had changed tremendously), it has! The previous version of the restaurant advertised themselves as Indian cuisine but they took their menu just too far into the whole Eurasian eclectic dining experience, and completely lost their way, it was almost as if the restaurant was the only Indian in the world where you couldn't get a simple curry! ITS CHANGED, and so much for the better that we have been there three times now! It still has those subtle Eurasian differences that stand it apart from the Taj Mahal at home, but this time they are all very welcome twists and additions to a good Indian menu.

It's quite strange because you have two Indian restaurants almost next door to each other, Chowka is definitely the high class, tourist, night out type of place, and a great place place to done with friends and family, it's also a good business place to sit on the terrace too.

Don't be that disappointed if you end up in the other Indian either, it's a few doors down next to Da Bruno Italian restaurant, although the place doesn't have the atmosphere, clientele, wine list, etc , it really is a bog-standard curry house, but the basics Vindaloo, Madras, Tikka, Korma etc are all there, and very well made.

“Good lunch”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Interesting Indian fusion food. Good and pleasant service. Although situated on the main road the the trafic noise has been sheltered off to a good extent.
