Definitely the best Indian restaurant in Malta. We have been here a number of times and never disappointed. My favourite dish is the korma but you can order anything on the menu and you will not be disappointed! The portions are a bit on the small side, we always order 3 dishes + rice + naan between 2 people and... More

Run by Indians rather than Bangla chefs - this is possibly authentic Indian food you will find in Qawra. The dishes are cooked to perfection and service very prompt. The ambiance is a bit lacking but they more than make up for this with hot yummy food. Great veggie options here - recommend the Masala Kulcha and Palak aaloo combination.... More

We have so often been disappointed with so called Indian Restaurants in Malta but not the New Madras. The food here is up with the best Indian food we have eaten anywhere in the world and the service matches it. The fish curry was Devine. Great use of spices and ingredients ensures excellent curries and accompaniments including wonderful naan bread.... More

We come here quite a lot because it's so amazing. There was a period of a few months we couldn't make it and now that we are back here we noticed how much we missed it! The initial 'on the house' dips with the popodums are to die for in fact we ordered seconds! I had chicken tandoori and it... More

If you like your curry spicy - this is the place to go!! We had heard that many curry houses in Malta were a bit shy on their use of chilli and spice - not this place! Food was nice, but I found the portion sizes quite small for the price. The Garlic Naan was amazing!

A small restaurant with a big heart in the middle of Bugibba. Reasonable prices and excellent food. A beautiful selection of Indian dishes made us spoilt for choice.
