Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. I had no problems ordering gluten free food. Possibly the best food I have ever tasted - perfectly balanced and expertly cooked. They have a licence but allow you to take your own drinks too. I wouldn't change a thing!

Another faultless takeaway from the malabar. Lamb Dhansak with fresh naan bread and my wife's usual king prawn veg balti. Considering the food has to be transported here and then we microwave it and it still tastes good means it must be fantastic served fresh on the table. Top marks again.

Walked in with my partner to grab a late night takeaway after a busy day, staff friendly at the bar where we placed our order and food was quickly bought out. Food was tasty and loved the Garlic Naan, my partner had a madras and said was hottest he's had anywhere but so tasty will try sitting in next time.

We dine here at least twice each month. The food is always excellent and the waiters are really friendly. There is convenient parking right outside the door. We do try different restaurants occasionally but really the Malabar is hard to beat.

Been here a few times after moving to the area recently. Food is excellent and haven't been disappointed at all with the food as there is a great menu and every dish I've had has been hot and tasty. My only gripe is that on weekends especially they like to turn the tables quickly leaving you feeling your being watched... More

Have been here before about eighteen months ago and had a decent experience despite one of our main meals having to be sent back because it was cold. On this occasion seven of us went on a Saturday night. The restaurant was extremely busy and we were seated upstairs in the small room next to the toilets, not a good... More

After finishing work in the area we called in quite early in the evening after having a drink in the nearby Weatherspoons pub (Avion - very good too with big range of drinks and outside area) We were made very welcome and perused the extensive menu with a couple of cool beers. After ordering our main meals we were brought... More

This time it was a lamb rogon balti with naan bread. The balti was bursting with flavours and tasted that nice it could have only been cooked by a freshie. Thanks again for great service.

As a visitor to this area this was my first visit to this restaurant. On arrival the first thing I picked up on was no draught beer which I much prefer to bottled and I was further disappointed to see that the bottles were small ones which generally tells me I am about to be ripped off. However this was... More
