Coming back to Malabar a little over 2 years since my previous review, we were a little disappointed. Maybe we were unlucky to be there on a quiet Saturday night, but atmosphere was lacking and service was just OK ...not especially warm, friendly or efficient....More

The Malabar is a nice little place, good food, not exceptional but tasty and reasonably priced. Rice comes as a side and portions are quite small but the mains are a good size. The only problem with this restaurant is that the tables are somewhat...More

Both me and my sister were very pleased with the food here. Cosy restaurant, decent prices and our waitress was charming. It was filled up even though it was a weekday. Both the lamb and chicken were well cooked and the spices were delicious. Definetly...More

It is Notting Hill, what do you expect? Small portions, not too small though. Tasty plates, nothing extraordinary. The restaurant is clean, the presentation is nice, the atmosphere is OK. Prices are average, only two tables have a street view and half the sitting area...More

This had been my favorite Indian spot my last time in London, so we obviously had to return. It's quite a bit more posh than I remember, but the Prawns Malabar did not disappoint. We enjoyed our dinner very much.

Delicious! We came here for dinner, and had papadums, garlic naan, basmati rice, lamb chops, dahl, some chicken curry with lime and mint, raita, cauliflower, okra, and spinach. Everything was very tasty, except the raita which tasted a little bit like glue. Service was okay....More

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
