We, Ram Pai & Suguna Pai have been serving delicious Indian Food to Richmond connoisseurs of Indian cuisine since 1991 when we opened our first venture, India House Restaurant on Westwood Avenue.

Ram is from the Malabar region of India (from Kerala state) and that brings authenticity to our menu that’s exemplified by his regional favorites.  In addition to the extensive menu and elaborate list of buffet items, the chalkboard menu of daily specials will titillate your taste buds and satisfy the cravings of Indian food.

At Malabar Indian Cuisine, we offer a variety of southern Indian vegetarian delicacies such as varieties of Masala Dosas and Mysore Dosas, various snacks like Idli, sambar and Rasam soup.  North Indian dishes like Palak Paneer, Baingan Bhartha & Chicken Tikka Masala bring patrons again and again for those items.

Kerala fish curry is a big hit among the regulars; so is the Malabar shrimp curry.  We offer quality lunch buffet Tuesday through Sunday and receive rave reviews from the local Indian community.

We offer great wines from South Africa, New Zealand and South America, along with cool beers like King Fisher, Taj Mahal and Haywards 5000.

Malabar Indian Cuisine was selected by Richmond Magazine as one of the “Best New Restaurants” that opened in 2004.  In their words, “You’ll feel like we’ve let you in on a special secret once you’ve tried this hidden gem.”

Do come and enjoy Indian Cuisine at Malabar with a platter of flavors, warm hosts and service with a smile.
