Description: At The Malabar we bring to you the fine art of balancing taste, flavor and aroma. We capture the essence of traditional Indian & Nepalese cuisine and present it with contemporary flair. The result is a menu that’s authentic as well as innovative. We offer a blend of culturally rich cuisine of the Indian peninsula and the freshest New Zealand produce – prepared by our award -winning chef with a touch of his own alchemy.

Outstanding cuisine and service. We visited on a Sunday night for dinner and recommend you visit Malabar. The braised lamb shanks were next level. Thanks Malabar 🙏

I visited Malabar as I saw it was the top rated restaurant on TripAdvisor for Taupo, and wow, it did not disappoint.
The food was amazing. Beautifully presented and flavourful. Cocktails were gorgeous. My partner ordered a Long Island ice tea and it has to be the best one I have ever tried. Portions were generous and food came out quickly. Customer service was also fabulous.
