Love this place. Really good food. Would definitely go back.

Made an online reservation for 5 people for a birthday dinner a week ago. Was given a corner table in a dark room and only 4 could sit in the table. Was asked to squeeze in a sit somehow as others have done it previously. Food was served without delay but not as good as our previous visits. Overall dissatisfied. Staff was friendly.

About Malabar @ Crows Nest

Smell the spices The Malabar restaurants (you can find one in Darlinghurst as well) take their name from the Kerala region, known for its Indian spices such as pepper, cardamon, ginger, curry leaves and vanilla. This was the start of the famous Spice Trail, which went on to bring exotic flavours to every corner of the Earth. Today, that’s what Malabar aims to do: show diners a real taste of South Indian cuisine. Owner and chef, Mohammed Sali has had 22 years of experience and continues to personally pick all of his ingredients daily; peeling onions, slicing beef and grounding spices by hand. Mohammed’s creations are fragrant, filling and, as expected, spicy! Dosai’s (crepe-style specialties) can be found on almost every table, along with a glass of creamy mango lassi, that other diners use to wash down the heat! You’ll also spy the happiness on children’s faces when they smell the garlic naan coming their way. Best dish: bangalore dosai - hand-mashed potatoes sprinkled with chilli, sesame seed and coconut flakes
