Both way we stop by at Taupo and enjoyed the food at Malabar. All the food served were amazing and best of all were Nepalese style goat curry, Dal, nan and prawn. This is a must eat for those looking for true cuisine from Nepal.

My wife and I love Indian cuisine as my wife is Sikh and I just love the food. This place while not a genuine Indian restaurant—it is Nepalese. Is amazing. I had the goat curry and it was delicious. The bone is in the dish but this only makes it more tender and tasty. My wife is vegetarian and the dishes that she selected were also very good as I could not help but eat everything that was left over. This is a must eat for those looking for authentic cuisine from India/Nepal.

Had dinner with friends on 2 Sept. The moment we walked in, we were served by a friendly staff who sit us down with the warmest smile. Food was good favoured, good portion and good value for money. Recommended and will be back for more soon!
