“Had a lovely meal”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We visited Malabar last weekend and really enjoyed our meal. We eat out a lot and found the service was excellent, the knowledge of the menu was really good - we asked questions about quite a few different dishes on the menu.
The food was really tasty!
We will definitely go back again.

“Outstanding service”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Visited here during TT practice week and we were advised by our waiter that it had only been open for 3 days.

You enter via a very unassuming door and up the stairs - once you enter the restaurant, it is clear that a lot of work and effort has gone into making this place very comfortable and it is tastefully decorated. The seating is on different levels and it makes for a very interesting place.... it is very clean and the carpets are very plush....

I cannot fault the service - all the waiters were top class and VERY helpful. After I had asked questions about a dish I got very informative information from a very friendly waiter who couldn't do more to help if he'd tried.... the service was outstanding!!

The atmosphere is great too - there is music, but it is pitched at the right level so that it doesn't drown out your conversation, and it not the usual annoying music you get in some restaurants.

The food was delicious and plenty of it. We had a tikka masala and a fish dish we had never heard of before, and they were both very nice. The waiter explained which fish it was and where it had been caught etc and we were happy that we were getting very fresh fish.....

This place is a little gem... you could easily walk past it though, but it is virtually opposite the post office and DEFINITELY worth a visit....

We had a lovely meal in a lovely atmosphere.
