The Malabar was quiet, clean and very welcoming. Service was prompt and courteous. Best of all though, was the food. We started with the Chef's Platter which delivered a very tasty sample of what to expect next - we were not disappointed. Next came the Bombay Chicken, Beef Masala, Garlic Naan and Steamed Rice. the serves were plentiful (we were warned), tender and spiced to perfection. No, we couldn't finish to meal so were provided with "doggie" bags and four samosa's (couldn't resist them as take aways). Good night - most enjoyable - not surprising that the Malabar is well recommended.
The food was basically four dishes of brown sauce with varying heat. I won't be back. Yuck. The entee items all seems laden with oil. The naan had oil on them. There is no atmosphere. There were only six people in the restaurant and there were four of us. It was the earliest we have ever left a place.
