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.

Hey Taupo yum yum yum😋😋😋.Very delicious 😋 Nepalese foods, we like spicy curry goat, chicken momo, and lamb. Such a surprising me. It's very yummy, and all the dishes are tasty and beautiful. Definitely will be back to have dinner again

Went there twice 8 days apart as it is our "go to place".
Found that the service and food was just as good or better than last visit a year ago.

Really nice place to eat. Friendly and fast service and the food was really tasty, full of flavour and the portions big. Good range of beer on offer. Chicken tikka trio was fantastic.

Genuinely friendly staff who went out of their way to ensure we had a great evening celebrating my husband's birthday. We were all very impressed with the food. Converted to Nepalese curry now!

Another return visit, this time with the family.( Wouldn’t go anywhere else when in Taupo.)
The adults kicked off with the mixed momo and trio of chicken, absolutely delicious . Mains of succulent lamb curry , beef Madras and murgh chicken scooped up with fluffy Naan bread. The grandchildren happy with their kids menu selections , icecream sundaes. We all enjoyed a variety of drinks from the extensive menu.
The whole evening was made even more enjoyable, by the friendly and welcoming service.
If you love your curries and are looking for something a bit different and special, Malabar is it!
