I recently went to the New Madras which is close to where I live. After a bad experience at an Indian restaurant in St. Julian's I wasn't so sure Malta could offer anything close to what I'm used to in the UK. But, me and my partner were very pleasantly surprised and we had a great evening there.
The service was great - very friendly waiters who looked after their customers and who clearly worked very hard to keep it running smoothly.
The food was absolutely delicious. We had poppadoms served with great condiments (like in the UK) and as a starter onion bahji's and vegetable samosas which were just perfect. As a main we had a Tikka Masala and Madras with pilau rice and a plain and peshwari naan. Portions were big - I am a big eater and only just managed to finish it all (apart from the naan).
The chef, who was very friendly, came up to ask if we liked it.
Of course it is a little more expensive than in the UK as it's more of a speciality in Malta but I was happy to pay the price and I will definitely be returning here! My only dislike was that the table and chair was quite low for me (I'm tall) but hey...that's not a dealbreaker.
On a sidenote, the waiters were also very friendly and patient with customers next to us who had never eaten Indian before and had no idea what to order.
