Chef/owner Mohammed Sali works the room, talking to guests with warm familiarity and recommending dishes carefully selected and cleverly reconstructed from recipes derived from the coastline of South India. The atmosphere is authentic and the aroma of delicate spices tantalising.
As former Chef de Partie at the Five Star Taj Connemara in Chennai and Executive Chef at the famous Dubai Plaza in the Emirates, Mohammed Sali has a wealth of experience which he has brought to Malabar as well as a new and fresh twist to Indian cuisine.
The menu is diverse with an emphasis on fresh produce for a wholesome, healthy approach to cooking which has proven to be consistently popular with Malabar's regular customers.
Our mains comprised Goan Fish Curry, Goat Mappas and Baby Eggplant and Potato Curry, distinctive flavours, yet a harmony of spices. You can view the menu here and mains are priced from $22.00.
To meet the demand of a growing and loyal customer base, Malabar has recently relocated to new premises in Darlinghurst at 274 Victoria Street (Cnr Victoria and Craigend Sts). The new premises reflect light, warmth and elegance with an attractive modern frontage viewing the Sydney city skyline. There are fabulous murals, and dramatic outsize photos depicting the rich heritage of India, all adding to the overall experience of dining at Malabar.
With restaurants in Darlinghurst and Crows Nest, Malabar serves truly exceptional Indian cuisine on a pukka plate.
And, if you're looking for a special Christmas gift for someone, why not get them a restaurant gift card so they can enjoy the surprises on offer at Malabar!
