Delicious food delivered very quickly via JustEat. Everything was very flavourful and the many gluten free options made me very happy.

My Dad and I have spent the last year visiting different curry houses across Norwich and beyond, as a way of trying out new places. We have visited a lot of places and I can honestly say this is up there with the best. When...the food arrived we knew we were in for a treat, as it smelt so good. The lamb pepper masala and cauliflower bhaji were a particular highlight. I always think you can judge a curry house by the simple onion bhaji and these were among the best. Light, non-greasy and packed with flavour. The staff were also very friendly and will definitely be back here again.More

We loved the meal we had a couple of years ago so made a beeline to Taste of Malabar on our first trip away from home for almost two years. South Indian cuisine is so good for vegetarians, we went specially for the dhosas which...were wonderful and enormous! Our starters fabulous too. Two elderly gentlemen arrived while we were eating. They're obviously very regular and discerning customers from their conversation with our very congenial host!More

Dropped into here on the way back to station and having read some previous trip advisor reviews. Whilst the venue could be better, but is clean and simple this is far outweighed but the taste and quality of food which is just far better than...your average tandoori restaurant. Prices seem to be on par with the average bit food was just fantastic.More

Ordered in on a Saturday at 4pm for it to arrive at 7pm. Waited in all eve for our order as stated would arrive at 19.05. At the time it should have arrived received a text that it had been cancelled and would not be...arriving at all as they were closed . Having waited in all eve for our order we were most disappointed to receive this message that 3 hours after ordering and paying our dinner would not be arriving at all.such a shame and will not order from again.More

Food was freshly made with good flavours, really tasty southern Indian food. We are vegans and there was a great choice, also reasonably priced. Would recommend this as an excellent place to go.

Friday Night, me and her in that restaurant with enough seatings for 40, but only 4 of us. We had the onion bhajis, Poppadoms, Mysore Masala Dosas and Chili Paneer. A rating of 5 stars as : (i). Everything was fresh! The chutneys for the...poppadums, the bhajis and the dosas were clearly freshly grinded. I could smell the freshly grinded ginger in there, albeit a tad over-powering sometimes. (ii). Mysore Dosa was a perfect triangle as you should expect. The dosa was crispy, thin and the chili chutney as the coating, was deceptively not spicy, but again spiciness is subjective to people’s taste. We were surprised that the parts covered by the masala potatoes were crispy as well! (iii). The Sambhar was just as it should be, tad spicy, thick, little bit of veg incl. a piece of drumstick with a wift of sourness from the tamarind. Coconut chutney was OK, I would’ve preferred it thicker with more flavours, perhaps with curry leaves tempering... (iv). Best onion bhajis in Norwich, period! Strands of onions each coated with the gram batter to provide great crispy texture and celebrate the onions, rather than a thick batter containing soggy onions as most other places do. My only criticism would be that the service was very premature. No plates were provided for our starters, but we asked and they kindly brought us a couple. The wait in between meals was slightly longer than one would expect, specially with a near empty place. It can sometimes be a good thing though, if you are taking time to prepare your meals with care and attention. Rightly so, I could feel the passion which has gone into the cooking, the care for the ingredients and the freshness of the meals. It was enough to surpass my criticisms for the service and I will maintain my 5 stars! I would highly recommend Taste of Malabar to keep up this standard of cuisine, and perhaps improve/work on the service a bit more.More

This was our second visit and it didn’t disappoint. Delicious authentic Indian food with lots of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. Staff were super friendly and the service was great. Amazing value for money - we’ll definitely be back again.
