My table was booked for 8.30pm. When I arrived I was shown to my table by a waitress who did not look very happy. I then had to wait for a further 1/2 hour till my order was taken. At no time during this period was I asked if I wanted something to drink. The food after being ordered was... More

The Three Amigos visited the Malabar last night as is the custom every few weeks and yet again we cannot fault the place! Food was excellent and the staff are simply a credit to the restaurant. Tastes differ among people but for us the food is simply wonderful. We will be back in another few weeks time! Oh, and the... More

Another great meal in the Malabar. No trip to Dundee, and we are here regularly, would be complete without a visit. Good atmosphere, great staff and fabulous, fresh food.

Drove past this Indian it looked busy which is a sign it is good. Phoned up and we were lucky enough to get a table. One of the nicest Indians I've had. The portions were massive and prices were not overly expensive unlike some of the other Indians on the same road, the place had a nice atmosphere, they didn't... More

The Malabar had a tough time in early 2014 with the death of a chef and then a few weeks closure, presumably while they decided what to do. Thankfully they reopened, and we finally have had a chance to visit. The good news is that nothing much has changed. The menu is still short enough to show they are not... More

The food is always hot and the estimated time for pickup is always correct! The quality off the food is fantastic, true indian cuisine and the price is very... More

My partner and I decided to try the Malabar after toying with the choice between here and one of our usual haunts. It was our anniversary and we were looking forward to it after looking at the reviews and menu. When we arrived that Friday night, the restaurant had a couple of others already settled, and we were quickly shown... More

Used to be an amazing curry exploding with original and wholesome flavour. Well it is not any more. We ordered a take away meal, were asked to come in 1h20min after which I had to wait another 20 minutes and got wrong order, as I discovered at home. The first impression was terrible, the curries were literally swimming in oil... More
