Good Indian Food near Tower Bridge

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

Was wondering around and stumbled into this restaurant. There with a business associate, and we were looking for a late dinner. The food was really very good, and the service was outstanding. Thanks especially to Farooq. He made the night very nice.

Was at the Mala with friends the restaurant was very busy and was told to wait in the bar by a friendly gentlemen was then given a table, the food was excellent and the service was good as well. I don't agree with the review that was given about poor service and warm food. Will defiantly be back.

We had a very nice lunch here on a weekday lunchtime. We all went for various Talli dishes. These were a very generous size and very tasty. I really enjoyed the meal and look forward to coming back in the future.

Having heard the radio advert for Mala on LBC my partner and I decided to reserve a table for a Saturday evening special night out. We even convinced our friends to come along. What a disappointment. Expecting a classy establishment in tune within the lovely surroundings of St Katherines Dock it wasn't. It was no better than your average high... More

Visited over the weekend. Restaurant nicely located in St Katherines Dock Able to offer table without reservation. Initially taking the order a little slow but then , poppadoms and starters served quite speedily, followed by main. I did have room for a pud but by the time they came to take the order...i had changed my mind!
