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!!!

Visited Mala restaurant with my husband for an early evening meal. We ordered the three-course set menu (veggie for me, non-veggie for him) at around £25 each, which turned out to be a good choice. 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

A family engagement organised at Mala's recently proved to be a very good choice of location and outstanding quality of Veg and Non veg food enjoyed by people who have visited Mala before and visitors from overseas who stated that this is the best North Indian food they have ever tasted.. The breath-taking location of St Katherine's dock together with... More

When seated, we realized that our plates were dirty so when asked they were changed. After that we were waiting for good 10 minutes to get the menus so to decide what to have (and have in mind that it was 18.00 o'clock so it wasn't busy). Service unfortunately was not good at all. Apart from the guy who took... More
