“1st visit & it didn't disappoint”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We chose to go to this restaurant as close to our hotel plus the excellent previous reviews. I pre-booked through Toptable for a Saturday evening for the 4 of us & we were promptly shown to our table. First impressions, very clean, staff interacted with the customers very well & the food was excellent. We weren't hurried at all which was good. Great location.

“Total Crap ! Overpriced Cold Food ! All Front and no Substance !,”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Cold restaurant, and even colder food delivered to table and no options for keeping food warm.
Waiter could not tell what dish was what when delivering to the table, we had to tell her what is was !
Worst Indian Restaurant I have visited.... It is in a great location and the decor and setting is excellent BUT you go to eat and that's the whole issue.
We refused to pay the service charge of 12.5% and they queried it and we explained about the poor food and there was no enquiry or questions from the waiter, he just walked off with the cash minus the service charge, obviously they don't give a toss.

“Been here many times-always excellent”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I'm going to get right to the point: Mala is outstanding and whenever we come to London, we always eat here. Right in St. Katherine's Wharf, beautiful location, and delicious food. Everything is good, the service is impeccable, and the staff remembers you-such a nice touch. Try the kheer for dessert-I fell in love with it and now make (or try to) at home!

“Very accommodating for lactose intolerant diabetic with celiac disease”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Our waiter Faruk took great care of us. I have a few blood disorders and the restaurant was very accommodating. The food was excellent. I ordered the tiger prawns with a special request to leave off all sauces, oils, dressings or any other potentially dangerous items for my diet. Everything was perfect and I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone who needs special accommodations.
