Wonderful Indian meal in a beautiful location

We recently enjoyed dinner at Mala with my aunt and uncle, who live nearby. My family is British Raj and so I always have high expectations for Indian cuisine and Mala did not disappoint. The food was delicious and varied and and there was plenty of it. The cold Kingfisher beer was also lovely... read more

This is a restaurant for people who think that fine dining and Indian food don't mix- take them to Mala and prove them wrong! Aside from its beautiful setting in St Katherine's Dock, this is a wonderful restaurant experience. The staff are warm and attentive and the food is excellent. The menu is made up of classic Indian dishes with... More

We went here whilst staying at the Tower hotel, just around the block. We didn't have a reservation but we passed it and we fancied eating Indian, the moment we saw it so we decided to walk in. We were straight away asked if we had a reservation and when we told them we didn't they look at us very... More

Mala is nestled in the corner of St.Katherines dock overlooking the marina with it's vintage and modern yachts and cruisers. Joined a friend here for an evening meal on a Saturday night. Although having reserved a specific table for a time, when I arrived, the table was still occupied and rather than make me wait, the staff were quick to... More

If it weren't for LBC radio I don't think I would ever have found out about this amazing restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were quiet generous. My girlfriend and I came here on our anniversary for dinner and the food was so much that we had to take the rest home. I must mention that the... More

Came here with a few friends whilst on a business trip. Service was efficient and friendly. The food choices were good and plentiful. Nothing particularly outstanding though, but good for the price overall. Nice location by the little harbour, and likely to be busy at night as several restaurants and bars in close proximity.

Good for someone who likes Indian Cuisine but is not too particular about things as the food is good but not outstanding.
