This is the must-go to Indian restaurant! The curries are the best I've ever eaten both locally and abroad and the cheese naan is a definite must-try. I visit every week and I'm never disappointed with the food or service!

Finding good vegan food whilst on holiday can be tough, Indian food is often a good bet, so we've visited many and this is one of the best yet. The veggie curry was fantastic and available at different heats to suit our taste. Rice was the best I've had. Staff were friendly and professional. Can't recommend highly enough.

Had been comping to this resturant for a couple of years now. Last Sunday I visited again and as always service and food where impeccable. I like trying new Indian restaurants but somehow I end up comparing them with this one, most of the other restaurants don't satisfy me as new madras. Very tender genuine chicken, beautiful textures and great... More

Went here in January for yet another visit, Still top class. The food & the service were great as previous. Had a chance to speak with the chef which was good. Will be back again next time we are in Malta.

This is a family owned and run restaurant. Normally out of the UK expectations are low for Indian food. Both the service and more importantly the food is fabulous. It really tastes like home cooking. The chef came and spoke to us he said all of the spices come from India direct and it has a wonderful depth of flavour.... More

Definitely the best Indian restaurant in Malta. We have been here a number of times and never disappointed. My favourite dish is the korma but you can order anything on the menu and you will not be disappointed! The portions are a bit on the small side, we always order 3 dishes + rice + naan between 2 people and... More
