Just come back from having another lovely meal. Management and staff very friendly, polite, very smartly dressed. Very helpful on advising you on your meal. My aloogobi is the best ever, they have got the taste just right thanks to the chef. Very clean place, nice decor. The staff cannot do enough for you. Would recommend. Congratulations on winning two... More

We visited the Malabar Indian Restaurant for the second time and we were not disappointed. Our choice of food was excellent, served by friendly staff in a lovely decorated room. We would certainly recommend this restaurant and we will certainly be visiting it again when we are next in Penn, Wolverhampton.

Early Friday night visit with family for sons birthday. He had been a few weeks earlier but it was my first visit. Large modern first floor restaurant with a somewhat brash bar area. Good sized well spread tables and a pleasant atmosphere. A very extensive menu but due to subdued lighting you will need a torch to read it. Some... More

This was our first visit. We were really looking forward to it, as it had been highly recommended. It was upstairs, well decorated and bigger than expected. We were shown to our table, quickly. The staff were not particularly pleasant, but we ordered quickly, and the food was quick. There were 4 in our party, all having different dishes, and... More

Service was extremely slow and one of our party had to leave early. We asked if we could order the poppadoms and the waitress refused point blank to let us have them as one of our party was missing. The food was ok but not massive portions which was ok for me but might not suit others. There was no... More

Went for a family meal which started off very well. We opted for the Sunday special menu as it seemed good value. The starters were good the Sheek kebabs were cold but as no one came over to ask how they were I just warmed them myself on the hot plate. The other starters were good. The pickles and poppadoms...

Had a very good meal. For the less adventurous member of the family there is the standard menu with all the classic standards. The speciality menu is wide-ranging and does include a fine selection of fish dishes, including fish you wouldn't necessarily associate with curries. It's certainly a busy restaurant and the low ceilings make it quite noisy, so not... More

Was recommended this restaurant by a friend 3 years ago. Even though it takes us nearly an hour each way to get there, it is well worth it, as the food is amazing and the staff are really friendly. We have worked our way through most of the menu and everything has been fantastic. My wife usually has the seafood... More
