A good restaurant, but a bit dark for someone who has eye-problems. Friendly service and a very good Indian dish.

Bombay palace probably offers the best Indian cuisine in all of Malawi or at least in Lilongwe. The food was very good though its quite expensive if on a backpacker budget and trying to be cheap about what you eat.
