Incredible place! For Brits, this is what you would be used to from a good casual Indian restaurant back home. Extremely friendly staff, tasty curries with good spice, and a fair price. Would 100% return if in Malta again.

We were looking for an Indian restaurant for our last meal in Malta so I thought I would use the trip advisor site to locate one close to our hotel. to my amazement we found this restaurant and it did not disappoint. the food was cooked perfectly and tasted so fantastic. the service was friendly without being over friendly and the choice of making your food mild , hot or very hot suited us perfectly as I love my spicy food but the wife prefers it mild. the mixed starter we had was plentiful and came out on a sizzling plater, of course we had all the trimmings like the poppadum’s and chutneys which were fresh and crispy. the main courses were served in small silver bowls but was just the right portion size. you have to order rice and chips separate, but this is a common practice in any Indian restaurant. the drinks were reasonably priced and we left feeling very satisfied with the meal they produced. even my wife was talking about when we got home and that says something as she is not a huge fan of Indian food. thank you for a great meal and I'm sure if we return to Malta we will be visiting again.

My husband and I were in Malta for 4 days. We eat here twice!!!! It's absolutely outstanding in everyway. The food is so tasty and the chicken just melted in our mouths. The portions are perfect. The service from the staff is professional and are always willing to give you great information regarding the menu. We would highly recommend this restaurant. It's an absolute gem and a pleasure to eat here. Can't wait to come back!!!!!

Food was great. Fish tikka was delicious. Rogan Josh was nice too. They also nailed it with the nahn bread. Very good. The price was a touch on the expensive side but not too bad. The service however, was questionable. Waiter was getting annoyed with customers dirtying the tablecloths. At one point, he rudely grabbed a plate from the centre of the table and placed it in front of me and my partner, like we were children at feeding time. Later, he snatched the serving spoon from my partner’s hand and insisted on serving up the meal onto our plates himself. I think this kind of attitude deserves a low rating. Management should look at this kind of behaviour of their staff very seriously. They are also pushy on the up-sell of more food and drinks and they even had the cheek to ask me if I would like to pay a tip. I found the whole experience to be a little rude. I will not eat at the restaurant again but I may take away in future. As I said, food was great, waiting staff need some good training and guidance.

I love Indian food and coming from Asia, I have high standards. Every other Indian restaurant in Europe hasn't really reached my standards, especially with the level of spice. I spoke to the waiter here and asked him to impress me with how spicy their food can get. He didn't disappoint and the vindaloo was amazing! The beef was really tender as well and I can't fault anything else that I ordered. Well done! I'll definitely come back more often!

In a short and simple review I just want to say that food is really amazing, authentic, fragrant, very tasty and you will not be disappointed. However, the staff are often more concerned about the floor management, i.e. who might come through the door next, and whether you should be sat elsewhere to optimise the capacity etc than you. Also, I asked one of the waiters for a recommendation and got a rather silly response back which was rather surprising. Next time, I would probably just do a takeaway from there than go in because you don't really need this kind of attitude in your life if you're a paying customer, I am sorry.

We had had a curry elsewhere earlier in our visit and it had put me off going to another Indian whilst in Malta, however my partner persuaded me to try this one and we weren't disappointed. The food, the service and the atmosphere were excellent. The chicken pakora starter was delicious. Our mains, chicken vindaloo, chicken madras, rice and plain naan were equally as impressive, they were served piping hot and we couldn't fault anything. Thank-you.

This restaurant is outside the busy bar/restaurant scene but we managed to find it around the corner from a quiet side street. We weren't too impressed with the welcome, we were just asked to sit on a sofa in a reception area although the restaurant seemed less than half full. We later realised that lots of tables were blocked due to local social distancing rules, and we had to wait until our table was disinfected and ready for us. Once seated, service improved markedly. In an Indian restaurant you always find lots of vegetarian dishes, and we were spoiled for choice. We opted for paneer makhanwala, vegetable Jaipuri and dhal. We were asked how hot we wanted our food. 'Medium' was just perfect, spicy enough without masking the individual flavours of the food. Each dish had a distinct flavour, definitely not the 'one sauce fits all' recipe of some restaurants. We ordered some rumali roti which were not as translucent as they ideally should be, but were still good. We also had some lovey pulao rice to soak up all the gravy! Portions were very generous, two dishes would have been enough for us but the food was so good we finished almost everything. We drank some beautiful thick and tasty (but also very filling) mango lassi. With a small tip we paid EUR50 for this Indian feast. The small detour from the main drag to visit this super restaurant is definitely worthwhile

We had dinner here yesterday. As a family of four Indian adults, we ordered drinks, starters and main dishes - veg & nonveg. Authentic food, but portions were relatively small. Naan and Roti were expensive. Manager Allwyn is friendly. Serves Indian beers which is a plus. Mango Lassi is also good, but expensive. Overall, enjoyed the experience. Will I go again when in Malta- probably yes. They should provide complementary pappadams and chutneys at that price of food.

Excellent food with superb service. We were delighted not only with our delicious meal but also the wonderful service. We enjoyed the green curry and perfectly seasoned samosas. I was also pleasantly surprised by their wine selection. The server was kind enough to make my son a chocolate milk even though it wasn’t a menu item. Highly recommend if you enjoy authentic Indian food.

I made a telephone reservation at this restaurant a week ago. My table was confirmed by the gentleman answering the phone. On arrival at the restaurant we were informed that no record of my reservation was written down, and the restaurant was fully booked. Ok I quickly found a vacant table at a top neighboring restaurant, so no harm done, but this muck up does not reflect well on the restaurant.

Really nice meal in Emperor of India, food really fresh, very well laid out and really tasty. Waiters are good and humorous although will ask you to order every item on the menu. Pleasant experience and somewhere I would recommend. Little bit on the pricy side though only flaw.

Located in the heart of Paceville, we visited as the reviews on here were good. Restaurant was very clean and Covid conscious. Waiter spoke perfect English and was pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our meals and husband was happy with the half bottles of wine on offer. It was quite busy when we were there so would be worth booking online as we did.

We decided to go to this establishment on impulse as it was only a few minutes from our hotel. As we entered at 7:30pm the owner or someone who tried to act like one asked if we had a reservation. Even before I had answered he rudely informed us that they are fully booked. No offer of a later table. Asked if there was anything Available at a later time he replied with a big fat NO. At the same time a waiter was at the front desk who overheard us and offered us a table between 8:30 and 9pm. Before leaving to kill an hour or so I kindly informed the 1st gentleman that I found his approach very rude and that his waiter actually had more of a business acumen than him. There about 4 tables occupied and about 6-7 empty We were in two minds to return or not and eventually decided to go back just based on the way the waiter had approached. When we returned there were only 2 tables occupied We were served by the same waiter and made a good effort to turn our initial encounter into a positive one and at. Times he was over trying. The food itself was average and bland in taste. I would not recommend the establishment as it was clear that guest were not made to feel welcome if no reservation was made. I have been to many restaurants where whilst they are full we have never been turned away in such a humiliating manner, and that by the owner itself. He needs to wake up start honouring his guest as such and not just travellers who he will never have to meet again. He needs to realise that his business is dependent on reputation and certainly will not have my voice of recommendation.

Had dinner here one evening and were quite happy with the place. Food is good, the chicken is tender and waiters are nice. However there are no kid-options on the menu and a mixup in strength didn't leave much for our little one to eat. Service is really good and the mood was nice throughout the whole restaurant. What was a pity though, was that the main waiter (or maybe restaurant manager), didn't think that Covid applied to him. He therefore wore his face mask around his neck while at the same time giving out high fives and fistpumps with the whole restaurant. He was the only one not wearing one though, but if he catches something the whole restaurant does as well.
