Suruchi, specializing in authentic Indian and Middle Eastern flavours, has been classified as one of the island's top restaurants for 2015 by the Definitive(ly) Good Guide.

Recently established in the heart of St Julian’s, the interiors as well as the menu offer an exotic feast of colour.

Inside, opulent, curtained dining areas offer some privacy from the main restaurant, which can cater for parties of up to forty people. Owner and manager Alan Kawsar makes sure that only the finest authentic Halal ingredients are used in all the dishes, while offering them at a reasonable price for a memorable fine dining experience.

Each dish is prepared by experienced chefs, who draw on their native knowledge to prepare unparalleled food experiences. Lunchtime and evening diners can appreciate a large variety of dishes. Try the baba ghanoush and classic Indian dal tadka accompanied by fluffy geera rice.

Firm favourites include the traditional Indian clay oven dish of chicken tikka tandoori, kuskse bel hoot (fish stew, cooked with Arabian spices, served on a bed of couscous), and Arabian meat grills, amongst many other typical dishes.

Vegetarian dishes are available on request, as are gluten-free and vegan options. The strength of the spices used can be adjusted to match one’s preference and local wine is available by the glass or bottle. World wines and champagnes hailing from Lebanon, and the European, African, Australian and American continents are available, as are some Indian beers.  

The two hours of complimentary parking at the Portomaso car park make for a hassle-free evening out, any day of the week.
Diners have been singing Suruchi’s praises, insisting that it easily ranks as one of the best restaurants on the island, with authentic food, first class décor and reasonable prices.
