A very warm interior. Authentic Indian food with a smoking area to dine and enjoy a smoke on the outer part of the restaurant. Friendly owner and very helpful.

During a several moths stay in Malta I used to visit Nargile restaurant frequently, never did I leave this place unsatisfied, the food is just great, tasty and enough. Service is spot on, price OK. Location is a bit off but easy to find. I highly recommend Nargile if you look for some really tasty/spicy food in Marsaskala.

My colleague suggested I should try this restaurant because it's very good, however, i was not too impressed. The food was lacking in taste, and it's far from being a good Indian restaurant. The sauces were quite bland. Waiters were nice and friendly, however, there were quite a few noisy people around... if you want to try good Indian, this... More

Have been to Nargile on many occasions and used to be one of my favourite restaurants in the South. However, I must say that my latest visit will probably be my last. Service is still good and staff very friendly and helpful but unfortunately the portions are so small that it makes you feel like you're being cheated out of... More

We visited this restaurant for Indian food and we were not disappointed! We've been going to this restaurant for about 2 years now. Every time we feel like indian food we know there is no better place to go! The food is delicious, and the staff are so friendly and try to accommodate your every need, and definitely provide value... More

The food is glorious, the staff is charming and helpful, the atmosphere lovely and smart. My friends and I go to Nargile at least once a month - we never grow tired of it!

Late dinner with friends, where we shared the dishes. In the night and early morning, some of us (I did not check with everyone) had a bad stomach.

Food was ok, nothing special. Service is very mediocre. Presentation is nothing close to Indian rather a self service restaurant ala Ikea (food is on plane white plate). Very nice interior though. Perhaps if you go there twice weekly, it is better.

Huge variety of Indian dishes, together with a touch of Mediterranean and Arabic cuisine. I have always enjoyed their food! Lovely setting and affordable prices!!! Welcoming staff really helps too!

Nargile Lounge is a fusion restaurant with Arabic, Indian and Mediterranean dishes. The food is simple yet delicious. Service is 5 star and the ambiance is brilliant.
