We were staying at the nearby Tower Hotel and decided to visit St Katherine's Dock to find a place to eat. We came across the Mala Restaurant and I am glad that we did as we had a very enjoyable evening. The well presented food was freshly prepared, spicy but not too hot - it looked and tasted wonderful - the prawn poori starter was fantastic. From the time that we entered the restaurant the service was attentive but not obtrusive - the waiting staff were polite and readily available throughout our meal. The atmosphere was slightly lacking as we visited on a Monday evening and the restaurtant was not busy. If possible take a window seat that offers views over St Katherine's Dock. Note, in common with many London restaurants this establishment applies a 12.5% service charge irrespective of the number of diners.
I would not hesitate to go back to this restaurant when I am next in London.
