Was invited out by friends to this small indian restaurant that I had never been to. Although the prices are a bit more than some other places on the island, the choice on the menu is vast and the quality of food is excellent... I highly recommend the mixed platter for a starter. Oh and they also have the best... More

Good selection of mixed starters, almost too much as we were pretty stuffed by the time the main came. My vindaloo was as requested, as hot as possible, and the lamb Madras just as good. Service was attentive, but not bothersome. Not the cheapest, but worth the experience.

We went in after reading great reviews on trip advisor, probably that set our expectations high. The food was good, service was also quick. The waiter did not like us ordering just one main curry dish, though we were ordering another main rice dish, he insisted that we order more. He was right in the sense the portions were small...

It’s like being invited to an Indian household. The father – patron – runs the kitchen while his son takes care of us patrons. Have been recommended this restaurant some 3 years ago by the New Madras vegetables supplier, and we never looked back. We usually go heavy on the dry starters with the mixed tandoori – always with an... More

We stumbled upon this small Indian in St. Paul's Bay. It was great; some of the best Indian we've had in Europe. The friendly chef from Madras doesn't shy away from spice but the food isn't just hot; it's tasty! Definitely worth a trip and open on Christmas.

I just love this place..small & Cosy, friendly, family run, tasty & fresh food all year round. The owner is the chef patron and his son manages the restaurant, they give attention to detail and if you go the second time round they will remember what you ate last time you came here :) The new Madras is an established...

We visited New Madras last year when we were in Malta and enjoyed it (see our previous review). So, it seemed like a good idea to visit again this year. It was nice to be greeted by the chef (and owner?) as soon as we arrived - we remembered him from last year, so we knew we were in good... More
