Nice setting in a cool part of town. Excellent curry of all types, good drinks with many varieties, and fine service. Walked away very satisfied. English Indian restaurants are usually worth a try and Mala is no exception. Oh, the garlic naan was fantastic.

The guy that picked up the phone for bookings was extremely rude and swore at me. If this is what there customer service is like you can imagine what the food is like. Avoid this place at all costs.
