Description: La Mère is tucked away past the old 'Suq Tal' Belt'. Rustic wooden tables blend with Middle Eastern décor, matching the unique theme of two great cuisines - Indian and Middle Eastern. A small, intimate dining area, and flickering candles, give a warm, homely feel. However, the tables are spaced enough that you do not feel cramped. Servers are attentive and knowledgeable on the wide choice available in the menu. Here, our desire is to present a repertoire of authentic dishes, bursting with flavour, certainly a multi-sensory experience. The menu offers a broad selection of starters, allowing you to whet your palate with a Lebanese spiced lamb sausage, or enjoy mussels and chorizo in coconut milk. Mains are similarly varied, giving you a choice of curries, or perhaps king prawns or lamb chops cooked in the tandoor. Our new menu also presents a selection of main dishes with a fusion twist, such a marinated filet of fish wrapped in banana leaf. There is also a good choice of vegetarian, vegan, lactose and gluten free options. Besides we have introduced a menu degustation, an extensive wine list, cocktails and whiskeys and a broad selection of homemade desserts such as chocolate filled samosas with mango and coconut, assorted baklava, pistachio and ricotta briouats with halva ice-cream.

Had been recommended this restaurant in Valletta and were not disappointed. Wonderful prawn dish as main course together with beautifully seasoned lamb tagine. Will be back!

Very nice restaurant with great service. However, I tried the Palak Paneer, usually one of my favorite dishes - with a couple of different breads. The food was fine quality-wise but not really to my taste - and Indian food is my favorite.

Looked at the reviews before going and we were not disappointed. Good food well served by pleasant staff in good surroundings.
Good size portion, seems to be normal in Malta but I have no problem with that, would recommend it.
When we went there were roadworks, and we nearly turned back thinking we had missed it, good job we kept going.

We sampled a few dishes here, all were great. A nice place for sharing plates and the food quality was terrific. One of our favourite dinners during our week in Malta. Feel free to bring your own bottle of wine as they allow you to with a nominal corkage fee.
