This could even be a really good restaurant if we had the chance to taste it, since we have two children (4 months and 4 years of age...and they are not crocodiles...) and we were stopped at the entrance by a waiter who said: "Sorry, but we do not accept kids". We feel sorry for them, because we are not... More

Excellent (Indian) food and service, a fair price. Our preferred choice while staying in Valetta. Diner with three adults & three children, from 7 to 11.

Lunch at this restaurant proved to be a great choice. We chose the lamb madras and lamb sagwala, both medium to hot in spice and it was spot on. The pilau rice was the best we've eaten for a long time, very fragrant with whole spices. Small criticism would be that the pakora style starters were slightly stodgy. Good service... More

Have visited Malta on three occasion and this was my fourth visit to this restaurant. The standard of food is consistently high and excellent choice. Given yourself sometime to work you way through the Menu various sections and styles of cooking. The Arayers are especially good as is the Prawn Malai.

Vey good for all the family and... More

The place was highly praised in our guidebook and looked inviting when we arrived on 18.6.2014 for an early dinner. It smelled mouthwatering from the kitchen so we were looking forward to a lovely family-dinner. Asking for a table for 4 in the almost empty restaurant at 7:15pm we were denied entrance as we were told by the waiter that... More

Having been to this restaurant a few times now I would call it a good Indian restaurant; however that is just based on the type of food I like and order! If you like Arabic dishes you may call this an Arabic restaurant first, serving Indian dishes! What ever food you prefer this is a good place to find it.... More

I have been going to this restaurant for a few years and I'm never left disappointed. The food is always tasty, the staff are always really nice and it is a little gem in one of the back streets of Valletta.

Stumbled across this place, slightly unassuming but thought we'd try it. They have Mediterranean dishes as well as Arabic and Indian dishes across the menu. We had fish cakes and grilled aubergine, then thali and tagine, all well presented and full of flavour. You can choose how spicy you want your dish. Great service, knowledge and excellent value for money.... More
