Went to Rickshaw this evening as I wanted something different from the pizza and pasta and decided to go as it was in a 5 star hotel, near the President's Palace and the lovely gardens. Drove outside the hotel with plenty of parking, the gardens were closed however the President with lots of security was in the car going by which was nice to see. Went into the hotel as I was early sat in the lobby people watching.
Went into the restaurant was greeted by lovely staff, nice ambience and a nice big rickshaw at the entrance, was empty as it was only 7 pm, restaurant looked nice inside too, a little cold and music at first was a bit too loud but then finally was lowered. The Manageress was so nice and lovely, Memmely I think her name was, so happy and friendly and genuine. One of the best members of staff I have come across probably in Malta and the world. She really does deserve to be not just the restaurant Manager but the hotel Manager!
Whilst I was looking at the menu, was given a big bowl of prawn crackers and some dips, was so nice of them and very tasty indeed! The prices were expensive but was a special treat even a small glass of diet coke was £3, a pint was £5 so be warned.
Had sweetcorn soup for starter which came out in a massive bowl with chicken and egg and sweetcorn (5 euros - not bad), was so nice and tasty. Main course had jasmine rice with chicken cashew nuts, was again so nice and tasty (14 euros for the chicken, 4 for the rice) and desert had some battered toffee with apple, was nice but only 1 piece of fried toffee which was a shame.. the menu said 7 euros but the bill said 8 euros, disappointing as they do need to update their menu to reflect the price but quickly resolved as I could not go over my budget but they still deserve a 5 star
Food was gorgeous, staff are the best I have encoutered in Malta, they all should feel proud, they were calling me by my name as well, and always smiling, so attentive, cannot fault not in anyway at all, because of them I would go back 110%.
Would really recommend the restaurant and definitely go back.
