Although there were sufficient staff just seemed disorganised. Food- this is honestly the best ever daal makhni I've had in years of dining at a... More

For a restaurant that is based in heart of London you naturally have high standard and expectations. This is probably one of the average indian restaurant I have ever been too. Whilst the atmosphere is nice and staff - I'll give them a brownie for effort, the food is of poor quality and for the price you pay as well... More

Mala is by far the only Indian restaurant that 100% will never let me down. Whenever me and my friends go we are never disappointed the service is amazing and the food is spectacular and to top it all off the area is beautiful which really gives you a special experience. We will definitely return!!!

The food was delicious, varied and generously apportioned, and neither of us managed to finish what we'd ordered (not for want of trying!). The drinks... More
