“Food good and cheap”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Although this is a chain of restaurants, the food offered is always of a high standard. Atmosphere is nice, even though it is usually a very busy place. Service is ok, bit depends who you get.

“Nice food sadly let down by the lack of staff”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Having gone out for a meal with 5 other people basically the food was lovely the waitress when on the rare occasion we see her as the poor woman was rushed off her feet the other waiting staff was the same we had to wait quite a long time for our starters then we got our mains straight away desserts was a joke got well p..... Off waiting which spoiled our evening the waitress was polite very proffesional and apologetic the place was packed out so why not take on a few more waiting staff will not return as the desserts was a joke which is a shame as its a lovely place nice location

“Distinctly average”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

A steak house is a steak house.

This one serves steaks, chips and seems to think that everyone only wants this and large sloppy portions. I saw more wastage of food being taken back that would feed some countries for ages. It was sad to see plus the number of meals which they "got wrong" and the number of deserts and write offs which they seemed to do automatically for every complaint makes me wonder if they are vastly overcharging or are losing money as the number of people actually paying full price seemed pretty low.

The tables were left messy for ages after each group left leaving an unpleasant view for us remaining. Our table was wet and sticky when we were sat down indicating to me that it was hurriedly just cleared from previous occupants and looking at the floor it seemed that some of the crumbs and mess were just scooped onto it.

The Waitress offered no more than she was asked to get - I thought these places were hot on upselling - not this waitress. She seemed to be going through the motions and was like others wearing a tired uniform and looked tired herself.

I would not visit this place to eat again if they paid me as I really dont need to feel this disappointment again. I know what I expect in one of these places and I did not get it here.

“Great in the summer”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The Malta is situated right on the river Medway.It is a large gasto pub which is ideally situated beside the river and 5 mins from the M20.
Definately worth a visit in the summer months.
