A Bloomsbury restaurant serving traditional dishes from south India, with a particular focus on the food of Kerala. The restaurant is set across two floors, with the ground floor representing the restaurant proper and a downstairs room for set menus and lunchtime specials.
The restaurant bills itself as a specialist in dosa – light, crispy pancakes eaten across the south of India. Here they're served with masala potato, sambar and chutneys, with egg, lamb, chicken or prawns, or stuffed with diced onion, tomato, capsicum and cheese. Other starters include chilli paneer, rasam soup and even mulligatawny.
Mains include dishes ranging from chicken Malabar, chicken korma and butter chicken to Kerala fish curry, crab thenga, green mutton masala and meen manga puli – a dish of fish and mango cooked in fenugreek, onion, tamarind, curry leaves and coconut milk. Biryanis also feature.
The restaurant features a comprehensive menu containing a wide variety of popular South Indian dishes prepared with the utmost honesty to the place and culture where the dishes originate from. The special emphasis of the menu is on dishes from the South Indian state of Kerala, which is a brand name by itself in the hospitality circles. The spices, mixes and recipes are picked and prepared from Kerala by experts to keep dishes as original as possible. The highlight of the menu is the specialty thali lunch, served in typical South Indian style, giving options of both veg and non-veg dishes to the guests. The ambiance is perfect for special occasions, parties and corporate celebrations, and it is a regular practice at this restaurant to offer customised parties for small groups.
The increasing number of returning guests to Malabar Junction is the biggest testimonial to its uncompromising attitude towards quality. Malabar Junction has become synonymous with South Indian food through all these years and usually ends up being a top pick for anyone trying out this exotic culinary experience.
