Review of Malabar

The flavours of South India are brought to the forefront by Chef Mohammed at his restaurant, Malabar.

The Darlinghurst location has prime position at the corner of Kings Cross and a table by the window offers diners a unique opportunity to people watch.  The newly fitted-out restaurant is understated, modern, with just a hint to their Indian heritage through the black and white wall mural.

The menu features South Indian specialties including Dosai’s, numerous curries (including vegetarian options) and Indian staples such as naan bread of course.  We are fans of the distinct South Indian flavours, herbs and spices used in the dishes.  You will notice the cuisine is quite different to the fare you may be more accustomed to from the North.

There is also a Banquet Menu which is perfect for groups.  Oh, and you might be interested to know they do BYO (wine only).

Add to this authentic service and we think Malabar is a perfect choice to satisfy your Indian curry craving.  In fact we’d go so far as to say this is some of the best Indian in Sydney.

Those on the North will be pleased to hear they also have a restaurant in Crows Nest.
