Malias makes you feel welcome. The food is wonderful. The staff is most accommodating for vegetarian requests and certainly appears to really enjoy what they do! Even in the winter, plenty of fresh, seasonal options exist. Wonder food. Wonderful place! Well worth your time.

Every meal is consistently tasty. I try something different each visit and am never disappointed. It's my favorite place to eat in Battle Creek and where I always take our guests. To match the excellent cuisine is an outstanding wait staff. Make your reservations soon!

If you can get in to Malia's do so. It is superb. Apps, soups, entrees, desserts, wines, everything is above standard. It's hard to find a place that consistently provides guests with high quality, unique food around MI, but Malia's does so.

In downtown Battle Creek Michigan, excellent food with a good wine selection. We had the days specials, Salmon with pasta & steak with pasta. Large helpings, especially for Indians. Very fresh ingredients & well made. Service was excellent.

No matter what you order, it is wonderful. The chefs really take you in mind when preparing your meal. There are special items on a blackboard to choose from each night or noon also. They are especially known for pasta dishes but they have some mighty fine fish dishes also. If you are in the area this is a wonderful... More

Chef Sampson and staff routinely put out exceptional dishes to please any palette. Open for lunch and dinner only. They consistently offer local produce and make dishes others only wish they could make. My favorites are the Ahi Tuna Steaks and Mushroom Soup (to die for). Big town flavor in working town.

This is the nicest restaurant I have been to in Battle Creek. The food was delirious, but a little pricey. If the food is worth it, I don't mind. The service was great as well. The restaurant has a cute look to it and great atmosphere. The menu stated it was a Mediterranean place, but I didn't really get that... More
