    Though the decor/setting isn't overly appealing, do not be fooled - this place is a gem. Good service, great dishes, an authentic taste experience! Go with a crowd or on a date.
    I noticed Mali's hasn't been reviewed on Eatout in two years, so maybe they have upped their game, because this was some of the best Indian I've had in SA and I've personally dined at all the top PTA, JHB and CPT Indian places. The ambience of the restaurant is very compact and homey, which suits the Indian style, so I have no complaints. Our food was also served in traditional copper bowls as expected, also very authentic and added to the experience as a whole. Our two waiters were friendly and very helpful, even when giving advice or answering questions about the dishes. We had the Butter Chicken and Chiken Chettinad, which were both simply perfect. Incredibly tasteful, yet not overpowering in any way, as many Indian places sometimes try to hard and kill the main ingredients. We ended off the meal with a very rare method of Sooji - made with carrot - it was truly Indian and absolutely to-die-for. Top Indian Cuisine!
    I have visited this place a few times, but had mixed experiences previously. However tonight crystallizes my feelings. I had the misfortune of trying to have dinner at this restaurant at 6 pm. I was informed that my kids were not welcome for dinner. So we went to our regular , child friendly and delicious choice Bombay Blue and we were not disappointed. So, my thoughts about this policy , relates to pure greed.The owner is quiet keen to maximize his profits from adult paying patrons! This policy would be palatable , if they provided a fine dining experience . The ex-"HARVEYS" decor and the glaring eyes behind the cash register do not make a fine adult evening. It is a pity , that good Indian chefs and their great cuisine is presented to us by mediocre service.
    Very mediocre. No depth of flavor. Restaurant is short staffed. Much better options no reason to return
    Best Indian restaurant Durban has to offer... Having eaten at all the Indian resturants in Durban, Malis is by far the best. The staff are very friendly and accommodating always recommending the best sellers... Trust me this will not disappoint. Having eaten Indian food in most parts of the world, I will definitely come back for more, Malis...
