Just a great Indian restaurant with lovely, friendly staff and a great choice of food. Whatever you choose, you'll love. I have had many dishes that I thought, I will only ever order that here but I get tempted by other things and have never been disappointed. Room upstairs is fab for bigger parties.

We have been going to the Malabar since it first opened some 17 or 18 years ago so they must be feeding us excellent food !!!! Nothing is too much to ask of them, if you want another ingredient added like lentils etc this is NEVER too much trouble for Mo and his team !!! I can honestly say in... More

Me and my partner order a takeaway from this restaurant the other night. After ordering 2 meals with a naan bread and starter it came up to £30 in total. We had to call the restaurant to check that the price was correct that the delivery guy was telling us. I was ever so shocked as normally we order from... More

tasteless food seems pre prepared and microwaved. Suggest aimed at lower end of the market where anything with a little spice thrown in is termed a curry.

Visited restaurant a couple of years ago and as I remember everything was fine with our meals. Returned in Jan 2015, ordered a chicken tikka pathia. When it arrived my partner first said "is that it?!" I had four pieces of chicken tikka. I was out with family and friends and didn't want to cause any fuss so I tucked... More

Yet again we have had perfectly flavoured food made for us by chefs who take things to another level. When we have takeaways we always have a Malabar and will never go anywhere else.

By far, this is one of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten at. The food is consistently of a high standard - no unpleasant variations or 'bad days. Try anything and everything on the menu - or ask the friendly staff to vary it a little if it suits you. If only everywhere had a Malabar.

A group of 6 went for a meal. Great atmosphere in a full restaurant and although it was extremely busy there were plenty of staff who were all very attentive. We all had different dishes and everyone said it was one of the best curries that they had ever eaten. Thoroughly recommend.
