I'm sorry to say that this was the worst Indian food I have experienced. In fairness, the food was better when I went to the restaurant (compared to delivery this time) but it can't have changed that much in the five minutes it takes to...More

Unfortunately the dishes are too oily, the paratha is too thick and nothing as a a paratha should be, and the vegetable side dishes have too many onions. The seats are uncomfortable and the picture frames are hung too low and protrude out so one...More

I was very disappointed. We ordered three currys and some sides through Deliveroo. When they arrived they were cold and more disappointingly, the portion sizes were tiny. The take away containers were barely half full, so basically we paid full price for a half portion,...More

The food in Malabar is excellent - not too heavy, or greasy or overly creamy. Portion sizes are good. Tastes are clean and fragrant. Nothing is overly spiced - unless you ask for this. The flavours of good, fresh ingredients come through clearly. The waiters...More

Though the setting looked nice I thought the food was poor, the sauce was watery and the portion sizes were tiny, we got 1 poppadom each when usually it's a few and the mint sauce was sour rather than sweet and creamy. The metal plates...More

I've been eating here regularly since the mid 1990's and it rarely disappoints. Start with Devilled Kaleja (sizzling chicken livers marinated in yoghurt with onions) to share - a must. Then always a decent curry be it monkfish, prawn, mutton / lamb or chicken. Can...More

In a quiet street but two minutes from the busy heart of Notting Hill, the Malabar was a delightful refreshing place to conclude an exploration of this part of London. Modern, airy decor yet small enough for an intimate supper......prompt friendly service, and best of...More
