Excellent food, authentic taste.

Went there as a family of four, every one had a different dish and all of them were excellently cooked. Best Naan we had in Malta. Especially the Lamb Madras was outstanding, the best I had so far outside India. A bit more expensive than other Indian restaurants in the area but well worth it.

On a whim my partner and I went in. It was quiet with very good unintrusive service. The food: we had a superb lamb curry, very good tandoori chicken and the best naans I have eaten anywhere in the world. There were also very young children eating and the waiters were lovely towards them. The pickles were excellent and were... More

Had two nice vegan curries yesterday night. They were seriously awesome, and the service was excellent. When we noticed there was some cream as decoration on top of our meal we pointed that out and the waiter brought us a new dish a few minutes later. The cook also came in the dining room and introduced himself. So good!

Excellent authentic Indian food. I've been to this restaurant several times and was never disappointed. Always looking forward to revisit. The food is divine as it is so tasty. Chef owner shows a lot of concern and he comes and asks each and every table if the food is fine. All staff are very helpful and efficient too.

We have been to the New Madras on a few occasions. It is consistent in terms of service and quality. I have enjoyed every meal we have had here and I believe it is now one of the best Indian restaurants on the island. Well worth a visit.

A big thank you to the New Madras for the wonderful food and great service. If you like curry, go here. I eat a lot of curry at home and was so happy to sample the food based upon TripAdvisor and for it be a great decision. Great place and brilliant staff.

Lovely staff, excellent food and good service. Chairs a little uncomfortable and servings a little small but otherwise a lovely meal! We went back 3 times! :D

Excellent food and excellent service. I had the Korma, tasted lovely with fresh baked nann bread. My husband had the Madras which he usually has in uk, he found it much hotter but tasted really good. All in all a lovely evening meal.

Popular! No wonder. Fabulous food. We had poppadoms....never tasted ones like them. Spicy with seeds in. Chicken 65 was delish! All curries very good. Service great. Very very reasonably priced wine.

Bugibba is one of Malta's main tourist areas so we had the usual problem of trying to find somewhere to park, not easy in the crowded centre of the town. The restaurant was just off the centre and we were the only customers at 6:30 on a Monday. Rather than work through the many choices on the menu, our family... More
