Had been comping to this resturant for a couple of years now. Last Sunday I visited again and as always service and food where impeccable. I like trying new Indian restaurants but somehow I end up comparing them with this one, most of the other restaurants don't satisfy me as new madras. Very tender genuine chicken, beautiful textures and great... More

Went here in January for yet another visit, Still top class. The food & the service were great as previous. Had a chance to speak with the chef which was good. Will be back again next time we are in Malta.

This is a family owned and run restaurant. Normally out of the UK expectations are low for Indian food. Both the service and more importantly the food is fabulous. It really tastes like home cooking. The chef came and spoke to us he said all of the spices come from India direct and it has a wonderful depth of flavour.... More

Definitely the best Indian restaurant in Malta. We have been here a number of times and never disappointed. My favourite dish is the korma but you can order anything on the menu and you will not be disappointed! The portions are a bit on the small side, we always order 3 dishes + rice + naan between 2 people and... More

Run by Indians rather than Bangla chefs - this is possibly authentic Indian food you will find in Qawra. The dishes are cooked to perfection and service very prompt. The ambiance is a bit lacking but they more than make up for this with hot yummy food. Great veggie options here - recommend the Masala Kulcha and Palak aaloo combination.... More

We have so often been disappointed with so called Indian Restaurants in Malta but not the New Madras. The food here is up with the best Indian food we have eaten anywhere in the world and the service matches it. The fish curry was Devine. Great use of spices and ingredients ensures excellent curries and accompaniments including wonderful naan bread.... More
