We've gone to Malta several times and my boyfriend always insist we go to Emperor so we've been there 4-5 times over the last 7 years or so. The service is great, the food is great and we just love the place. They have this great starter - I think it is picked onions and they are perfect. But really... More

I know it sounds cliché, but yes.. the curries are amazing. We had the tikka masala and the black pepper curry with rice and naan bread. Strongly recommend :)

Lokking to eat Indian, we asked reception for a recommendation. They recommended well. Emperor of India was semi-hidded down a back street but sported a very good and somewhat unusual menu. Peshwari lamb, for instance. Friendly staff. Decent prices. Near the Intercon.

We will be back on our next trip to this charming,... More

It was supposed to have been cooked while I waited.It arrived and tasted very dry. It was taken away and came back moist but still... More

not for veggies, bland and cold microwave starters cooked from defrost. Mixed staff attitude, good waiter, bad waiter, depends how unlucky you are. Mains average, hardly any choice of dessert. Reasonably priced but over rated

Good menu matched by the quality of the food. Yes, the rice is expensive, but enough for two to share. The quality of the food was also matched by the staff, who were very friendly and really contributed to a good evening.
