We've been here many times. Consistently fantastic food, good service. Ambiance is lovely but can be noisy if busy. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys quality Indian food.

Haven't been to Malabar in a few years and it was still as great as I remembered. Great Service, lovely food. Yum!

We love the traditional dishes. Wait staff are helpful, but not intrusive. beautiful wines, and a good selection of wines able to be ordered by the glass. When they brought one dish that we had not ordered (but we didn't realise at first) our waiter brought out the ordered dish and we were given the extra dish on the house. We go back every year.

About Malabar @ Darlinghurst

Follow the Spice Trail. The Malabar restaurants (there is one in Darlinghurst and also Crows Nest) takes its name from the Kerala region, known for its Indian spices such as pepper, cardamom, ginger, curry leaves and vanilla. This was the beginning of the famous Spice Trail, which went on to bring exotic flavours to every corner of the Earth. Today, that’s what Malabar Darlinghurst aims to do: show diners a real taste of South Indian cuisine. With over 22 years of experience, owner and chef Mohammed Sali personally picks all his ingredients daily, peeling onions, slicing beef and grounding spices all by hand. Mohammed’s creations are fragrant, filling and, as expected, spicy! You’ll find dosai (a crepe-style speciality) on almost every table, alongside a glass of creamy mango lassi and a basket of crisp golden naan. The décor matches the food – classic with a modern twist. It’s a fresh-feeling atmosphere, after the restaurant moved a few doors down in December. Malabar Darlinghurst: food fit for a maharajah! Best dish: Chemeen Paringikai dosai.
