The meals had no flavour, presentation skills or quality. The chips tasted like pure oil with the naan breads being raw and doughy. The chicken tikka naga tasted of cumin and curry power with nothing but a purée texture. The jalfrezi contained one slice of pepper and one small chilly. When addressing these problems with the owner he shrugged his... More

I went early with my 11 year old son, we felt rushed from the moment we arrived to when we left, food was nice but quite expensive. We left 55 minutes after arrival, not from choice but being pushed all the time. My overall feeling, is a lot of money for a poor dining experience, should not be pushed out,... More

The only thing stopping me eating here all the time is my expanding waistline. Very tasty dish bursting with flavours and aromas, I never have a bad meal here and they really are one of the best in the Midlands.

Aldridge is full of great curry houses, but Malabar is still my favourite. Had another lovely meal last night - food extremely tasty and service good as always.

Six of us ate here on the last Saturday night before Christmas so the place was full and quite noisy as you would expect. I hadn't eaten here for years as the last visit was disappointing. Since then decor has been updated and is now modern. Food and service was good, prices reasonable and it helps being able to take... More

A firm favorite, we always go when we are within an hour away. A warm welcome and consistently excellent standards await. Never had a bad meal or service that was less than excellent. Our favourite.

The food at the Malabar is exceptional. I think it takes a lot to offer a five star rating for food but I can pretty much guarantee the dining experience in this restaurant as being second to few. I took a look at some of the dishes coming out of the restaurant and they looked so original and tasty. The... More
