Dosai is a must try, the lamb mince one was delicious. Service is always pleasant and we are looking to try new dishes next time.

We keep coming back to Malabar - food is delicious, decor is nice, staff are friendly and welcoming. I didn't really love Indian food before I had been to Malabar. You won't be sorry - all the food is amazing.

Great for after-theatre dinner. Flavourful food and a reasonable selection of wines. Cosy and warm.

The staff, service and food are always great at Malabar. It's our go to place for dinner! We highly recommend it for any occasion. It's a absolute neighbourhood gem as is evidenced by the fact it's so popular.

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.
