Being from the Bay Area, having a mother who knows how to cook really good Indian curry and going to school with a very large Indian population in high school, I have learned to love Indian food. We moved down to the AV last year and were looking for a few places to eat that weren't chain restaurants. Malhi's fits... More

Food here is good, tried a lot of things on the menu and it's all been good. Service is great and friendly too. Small cozy place, it can get very busy so show up early!

Malhi is a great escape to India. The food is authentic and delicious, and the staff are very helpful and patient when making inquiries about items on the menu. My wife and I eat a lot of vegetarian meals throughout the year and Malhi has a large offering of vegetarian and vegan options.

Mahli's is a friendly local Indian restaurant that we visited at the Palmdale location. The staff is very attentive to the customers giving good service. The food is the best I have had in California. The décor is simple & well done. It's atmosphere feels like a bit of India. The orders we had were appetizers: beef samosas, main courses:... More

So, I have a friend in from out of town. Our paths crossed on business trips. My friend goes out of his way to travel to the AV just to have lunch with me and then drive back to LAX. That's a heck of a commute for a lunch. I figure I can at least try to find a good... More

I had the Chicken tikka marsala, garlic naan, and steamed rice for dinner. I thought the food had just the right amounts of spice and gravy and the chicken was exceptionally prepared. I usually approach Indian restaurants in the states with a degree of doubt having lived in Chennai and worked there for years in the past. I think Malhi... More

Walk into that restaurant and the smell of spice transports you to food heaven. Ok, I admit I love Indian food but this is one of the best restaurant in the Antelope Valley. The majority of the food of course is vegetarian but you can order chicken and lamb. Hand made Naan is outstanding. as well. The buffet is gone...great...it... More
