“BEST Food In Valletta!”
Review of Naan Bar

Naan Bar

We work with local farmers and suppliers to incorporate the best produce available on the island into our seasonal menus and also cater to all dietary requirements with an extensive selection of gluten-free and vegan items. The bar on the ground floor is more sleek and suited for small plates and cocktails while our circus-themed dining room with its view of the live kitchen and tandoor clay oven is cozy and better for families and larger groups.

I had a wonderful experience here, twice! The Indian food here is inventive and memorable! If I lived in Malta, I would be a regular for sure. I tried several of the dishes here, all very flavourful and delicious.

Valletta is lucky to have this Indian restaurant -
Pouring with rain, i popped in here as it was next to the hotel I was staying at. There’s hardly any lighting outside so you might have to look hard for the door at night, but it’s well worth finding.
The food was excellent, I had the chicken chettinad, which was fiery and excellent. Well worth the expense. The ingredients were top notch and well cooked. A good modernising of Indian food.
Hope it’s thriving by the time I return, as there were so many interesting sounding dishes that I’d like to sample

We went twice for lunch and dinner. The food is tasty and I would give 4 stars but the portions are too small so the rating .
The staff is nice and the venue ordinary.

Been to this restaurant last night. What can I say? In my opinion, the food is 1 of the best when compared to other Indian restaurants. I took a Lamb Biryani accompanied by Garlic Naan. Still can't decide which was the best since both food items were delicious. Last but not least, I would like to thank the waiters for providing us with excellent service. If you want to eat Indian in the Capital, definitely go for Naan Bar :D

We had a great dinner and a very good experience dining with friends and enjoying a pleasant dining room, the right amount of noise and hubbub (no problem having conversation as is often the case in many venues). The food was truly memorable. The Chicken Chettinad was a new taste experience for us, and we will not forget it. Excellent staff.

Thank you for your review! We are pleased to hear of your experience with us and the appreciation of the dining room. Our guests who want to chat seem to prefer the dining room on the lower level so do mention your preference when you return and we will be sure to assign the same to you. We will be rolling out some Winter specials this week so you can expect to taste more unique dishes on your next visit. Look forward to welcoming you back to Naan Bar!
