..it does. Combining Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine seems odd, but this restaurant manages to make it work. Try the chocolate samosas!

One of the most delicious Indian restaurants I have been to. We had to wait at least 15 minutes for our meal, but it was well worth it and a clear sign that everything was prepared from scratch. The ingredients were fresh and each mouthful...More

The bar is not very high in Malta for Indian Restaurants, but despite the competition or lack of, La Mere does consistently deliver on very good Indian food, and indeed Arabic dishes as well. If you are on a short holiday in Malta then there...More

Wonderful place to visit and the food is delicious, best Indian food in Malta! The service was also excellent, when there was a misunderstanding about the food, my plate was changed no questions asked. Will definitely visit again :)

Not been here for several years but last night re-lived my previous thoughts of this being the best curry in Malta. I had the Beef Vindeloo and it was devine. Everything on the menu looks worth trying and I will be back soon.

La Mère is tucked away past the old 'Suq Tal' Belt'. Rustic wooden tables blend with Middle Eastern décor, matching the unique theme of two great cuisines - Indian and Middle Eastern. A small, intimate dining area, and flickering candles, give a warm, homely feel. However, the tables are spaced enough that you do not feel cramped. Servers are attentive and knowledgeable on the wide choice available in the menu. Here, our desire is to present a repertoire of authentic dishes, bursting with flavour, certainly a multi-sensory experience. The menu offers a broad selection of starters, allowing you to whet your palate with a Lebanese spiced lamb sausage, or enjoy mussels and chorizo in coconut milk. Mains are similarly varied, giving you a choice of curries, or perhaps king prawns or lamb chops cooked in the tandoor. Our new menu also presents a selection of main dishes with a fusion twist, such a marinated filet of fish wrapped in banana leaf. There is also a good choice of vegetarian, vegan, lactose and gluten free options. Besides we have introduced a menu degustation, an extensive wine list, cocktails and whiskeys and a broad selection of homemade desserts such as chocolate filled samosas with mango and coconut, assorted baklava, pistachio and ricotta briouats with halva ice-cream.
