Didn’t expect to come to Malta and find that a curry was the best meal (twice) that we had. But… not just a curry… we had the Kashmiri Lamb Rogan Josh… twice… not just the best lamb shank I’ve ever tasted, it just melted off...the bone, the flavours were amazing, but the sauce flavours and the jeera rice and the potatoes… Thank you Naan Bar. Perfection, on two separate nights, explosions of flavours, perfect food, wonderful staff, ambience (downstairs is lovely), made the holiday (twice).More

Last minute booking on 2nd night of a weeks break. Was unsure has had walked past the restaurant 2-3 times during the day when shut and looked like nothing. Well hidden gem, menu not massive but that is good. We had the lamb to start...then a lamb rigan Josh and a butter chicken with 2 sides and tie and a garlic naan. Out of this world and one of the best Indian meals ever (only one that could ever beat this was my old flatmates mums cooking - she was Indian BTW). Great sorry fantastic food and amazing service and not expensive either. Let’s semifinal fit in another visit before we go - yes it was that goodMore

Super tasty Indian food! Will definitely be recommending to friends. Great service, enough options for vegetarians, nice cocktails/mocktails and would definitely go back. It’s relatively small so be sure to try and book beforehand.

Pleasant enough restaurant, we both had the Butter Chicken curry, with a plain and a butter naan. I wouldn't have described the main as butter chicken, but it was OK. Chicken was a bit overcooked. Naans were OK. Quite thin, but OK. Service was good.More

First time eating here and it was fab! Chicken Biryani (made spicier for me) was mouth tingling good. My husband had chicken legs in a curry sauce (medium) and I couldn't stop dipping my naan bread in it. Never tasted a curry sauce like it...before. So good. Will definitely be back when we visit Malta again.More

As an avid lover of Indian cuisine, I had to try this place during my weeks stay in Valletta. Lots of dishes on the menu I haven’t tried before, only a few dishes I’m used to seeing in the UK which isn’t a bad thing....For starter I had the biryani arancini which was nice. Mains I went for the lamb shank and the flavours were really nice. Only down side is that the meat wasn’t falling off the bone and was a little tough. Could have done with a little bit more cooking. I also ordered the butternut squash side, which I really didn’t like. Didn’t really taste of anything and was a little undercooked and crunchy for me. Everything else was lovely. My wife loved her korma, although she’s pregnant so couldn’t eat it all. Rice was good, naans were exceptional. Busy place so worth booking in advance.More

This restaurant is very close to our hotel. We wandered in with few expectations but found the food was really excellent, being both generous portions and delicious food. We sat downstairs and could see into the kitchen, which meant we could see bread being prepared...fresh for every order. It's a nice atmosphere with friendly and attentive service. I really enjoyed my potato patties, south Indian beef and jeera rice, the beef just melted in my mouth.More
