Further Information

Mala Indian Restaurant’s premises on Marble Quay boast tables with views out over East London’s St Katherines Dock no matter where you are in the restaurant. The ambience is one of warm welcomes and relaxation – there’s no better appetiser before an authentic Indian feast than that. Here, guests dine surrounded by antiques, paintings and murals appropriated from historic Indian palaces. To add to the sense of luxury, Mala has a unique method of access rarely surpassed in London. Besides being close to excellent public transport services, you can reach Mala from their own private pier!

The a la carte menu at Mala Indian Restaurant features the Mala Mix Starter Platter, a highlight for indecisive diners looking to sample a range of small dishes from the Asian subcontinent. Indulge in some traditional Indian barbecue with a dish from the tandoor, or go for the reliably delicious chef’s recommendations: chicken haandi lazeez (a traditional homestyle chicken curry), mazrani murgh (skewers of barbecued chicken tikka with capsicum and onions, all simmered in a yoghurt, onion and cashew gravy), or the kohat kofta curry (chicken kofta stuffed with dried fruits, served in a velvety, cardamom-flavoured masala). Having hosted Britain’s biggest curry party in 2012 to raise funds for James Whale’s fund for kidney cancer, Mala’s Marble Quay premises are more than capable of hosting your private event.

Die Lage des Restaurants am Katharinenquai ist wirklich bezaubernd und absolut ruhig mitten in der Großstadt. Das Restaurant ist sehr hübsch ausgestattet und bietet viel Platz.

Four brothers enjoyed a reunion in a great location. Very easy to find in St Katherine's Dock just off Tower Bridge Road. Excellent food served attentively in spacious surroundings. Good ambience.

Coming from east London and eating in the various Indian restaurants around my home, I was expecting a similar experience here. However, it was much better all round. The restaurant itself is quite large compared to what I'm used too and very pleasantly furnished. No background music at the time, but funnily enough, did not realise this until we had nearly finished eating!!! The staff were very pleasant and on hand but not intrusive, the food was very good, large portions but much more refined than we're used to, Indian fine dining is how I would describe it and then there is the view over St Katherine's dock!! Very good experience and will definitely be visiting again.

Booked online 2 weeks before event. When we arrived there was some confusion about our table. First we were taken to the main part of restaurant, then we were ushered to a table that was in another part of the restaurant, in a corner, by the kitchen it seemed, but none the less it was a make shift table! Wasn't even laid!! They could see we were not happy. The 4 of us were contemplating leaving, when all of a sudden we were taken back downstairs to main part of restaurant where they miraculously found a table for the 4 of us by the window, and.. decorated with xmas crackers. We ordered popadoms ( which by the way, came without onion salad) and the main meal followed a few minutes later. This was extremely quick! The food was mediocre and sub- standard, it all tasted as if it was a microwaveable meal. We asked numerous times for water, and also had to ask for the table to be cleared. The service was very poor and the waiters were very miserable. When we received our bill, the waiter told us that for our inconvenience he would cross of the service charge... I would have much preferred a free drink at the end of our meal... which is the norm anyway in all our local indian restaurants we go to. Mala has a LOT to learn. Wont be going again!!

Due to severe traffic congestion we were rally late - in fact we arrived about 20 minutes before they closed. Despite this the staff made us really welcome and served up an excellent meal as usual. We can't thank the Mala enough. One of the party is disabled and wheelchair bound, and the staff co uldnt have helped him mor and, what's more allowed us to park right outside on a disabled parking slot. Well done all of you.

Food was great and service was good. Only reason why I'm not rating as 6 is because the waiters mixed up our order with the one from another table and there were a few minutes of confusion where we could see our food was ready (on a serving table) but the waiters had no idea which table had ordered it, they even asked a different table if our order was theirs. It was still a good experience and I will probably go back again in the future.

Nice restaurant. Good food. Could have been hotter when arrived on table. Service was very attentive overall good experience. However authentic Punjabi cooking. Only complaint was we couldn't finish our meal and asked for it to be packed to take away. They put the daal and chicken dish in the same pot which if I was vegetarian or with someone vegetarian would have been appalling. It was late when we left however no excuses. Doubt if I would go back as the food does not beat my favourite and the end of the night as below left me with a bit of a niggle

Staff are always friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious and usually cooked to perfection. We came for lunch on a Sunday and the whole area of St Katherine Docks was busy all weekend and as expected, the restaurant was full like we have never seen before. My fish dish was cold so it was taken away and had to be warmed up. Nevertheless, the staff were professional and worked really hard to serve all the customers the best they could. It's nice to see the restaurant doing well but it needs the proper amount of staff on these really busy days.
