The Kerala Lamb curry was served with perfectly cooked rice and accompanied by a delicious Pashwari Naam bread. I took half the bread home, it was too tasty to waste.
It was a chilly evening and I was cold, the staff member put on a radiant heater and directed me to the warmest seat, like a really fine host.

Food at Malabar is yummy specially tikka masala one of my favourite.
Their spice is unique & cooked with so much care.
Never had an issue with the flavour since day 1, tastes authentic until today.
Staff are friendly & taking orders over the phone has never been a problem.
Great communication & yummy food.
Well done. Malabar.

We tried this place for takeaway because it’s so close to home. The curries were good (nothing mindblowing, but good). But the service...
The order according to website prices should have been $32.80 but when my partner returned they had charged him $39.50 for 2 medium curries and a naan. Given this price increase, if the 2 curries had been upgraded to larges and an extra naan added, it would have met the deal for $33 and saved us 6.50. But they never said anything and gladly charged us more. This put a sour taste in our mouths and means we won’t be returning - there are enough other good curry houses in town.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for South Indian delicacies. Very close to dishes you will find in south India especially Kerala. Suggest you order items that aren’t usually found in Indian restaurants here- you can thank me later.
