“Fab vegetarian meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

I dined in Malabar with a group of 6 friends last Friday we all thought the food was absolutely excellent, I am a vegetarian and my starter savoury rice pudding was absolutely divine with channa masala done in south indian style which tasted completely different to the usual one I get else were but was tasty and flavourful.

Service staff were welcoming and helpful also they had some good wines on their list we had the house merlot which was easy to drink and perfect with our food.

Filter coffee was of good quality,fresh and brewed on our table which I have not seen in any other Indian restaurant before.

Over all it was an excellent evening and will return again.

“fantastic meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Read the reviews for this restaurant on Tripdvisor and it sounded wonderful so decided to visit as both my husband and I love Indian food. We both thought the food was absolutely delicious, particularly the poorie with queenies starter. The lamb in the main course curry was so tender and the vegetable pilau rice complimented it very well. All the staff were very welcoming and really took the time to explain the menu which helped with deciding what to have from a very extensive and unusual menu. Thank you for making the last meal of our holiday one to remember. We wish you every success for the future.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We came across this restaurant quite by chance, however; the decor, staff and food are absolutely wonderful! The restaurant is set out with tables on an upper deck with plenty space between them which is rare.

“Malabar Indian cuisine Douglas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

The entrance to this restaurant is modest and unprepossessing, and without having seen the TripAdvisor review we would not have have noticed it, or would have passed by. However, inside, the restaurant is spacious and agreeably decorated; the food was great, the prices were modest, and the service attentive and friendly. We (my wife and I) thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
