We eat here regularly, travelling by train from Kidsgrove. This restaurant is worth the trip. Being near the station it's easy to get to for us. The proprietor is always welcoming and friendly, and likes to chat if he's not too busy. The menu is not extensive, but the food is always superb, and well cooked. The sticky rice is... More

Eventually the other starters arrived, the main course was fine and all the food was very good but the... More

Food is always good and authentic. Service is characterful, but attentive and quick. They are happy to adapt dishes where necessary for vegetarians, etc

I'm a regular at Maliwan, both for dining in and take out. Mark is a great host, always offering a warm welcome, and the food is always outstanding. Happy to make off menu items or previous specials, too (if they're not too busy) and always accommodate my 5 year old too. Couldn't recommend more.

I love the food and the service from other waiters is good but the owner is dreadful- we asked for a table and he grunted 'over there' at us. He cleared the plates as if we were an inconvenience. If he hates customers so much, why have the business?
