    Very diverse menu, and everything we had was delicious! We had one vegan in our party, and the staff was very helpful in steering her in the right direction.

    We had a delicious vegetarian meal! We got the fried cauliflower to start, which was spicy but not too much. It’s a very large portion too. Then we ordered Mali Kofta and the red pumpkin dish and cheese naan. Everything was cooked perfectly. It was a special occasion and the staff was very attentive. We loved sitting at the table by the window.

    I was looking for an Indian restaurant in the East Village, and found Malai Markle on Open Table. I'm so glad that I did. First of all, the space is quite nice and feels most comfortable. The dahl makhani was amazing - possibly the best that I've ever had. Delicious tomato soup and Tandoori roti, too. The service was excellent and the prices most reasonable. I look forward to going back.

    After a trip to India, it is hard to accept New York's "Indian food" but Malai Marke got the standard dishes shining with real spices.

    I love the food at Malai Marke. First time I ate there was good. This time I felt like the wait staff were annoyed by us asking to wipe down the wet table, and to replace a glass. Didn’t make for the warmest vibe. Will go again for sure and assume this was a one-off. Will definitely keep ordering delivery!

    I knew the restaurant had to be good once I realized that it was in the same family as Sahib, Dhaba and Chote Nawab. I've been to all 3 and enjoy their food very much. I was very happy with the service and food at Malai Marke. It didn't disappoint! I'm lucky that it's close to my home whereas the other 3 are to my job.

    Never again. I have been eating at this restaurant for years, taken many friends here, and it’s my go to place to order Indian food for delivery. However, the way we were treated by the manager tonight, I’ll never be back. He was extremely rude and refused to seat us. It seemed extremely personal for some reason - we simply wanted to eat dinner and he refused to seat us, was defensive, rude, and walked away despite plenty of tables being open. Another employee seated us and he yelled at him, so we left. It sucks to be treated this way by a restaurant I’ve supported for so long. Went to Brick Lane Curry House instead, highly recommend checking them out instead.

    Amazing food and attentive service. They easily accommodated our large group of 12. My only complaint was that the restaurant was very warm, an open window would've gone a long way! I'll definitely be back!

    This is our favorite Indian restaurant in NY, and we have been there numerous times over the years. And we will go again. But I wonder if they can do anything to abate the noise level? There was a very loud party at the next table that made it extremely hard for us to carry on any conversations without shouting.

    My family has been eating at Malai Marke since it opened. It was instantly our favorite among the local Indian restaurants and we have eaten there or had delivery dozens of times. All restaurants have their ups and downs, but at the moment, based on our meal last night, Malai Marke is at a very high level. All of the dishes we ordered were delicious, spiced interestingly, freshly cooked. Even the samosas seemed more thoughtfully prepared. Breads, too, are excellent. We were really happy with our meal and grateful that Malai Marke is thriving during the pandemic.
