The Oldest Indian Restaurant in Malta

Serving authentic Northern Indian and Punjabi traditional family delicacies since 1994
- Our Commitment to our patrons

The True Taste of India

Atithi Devo Bhava, an ancient Sanskrit verse - meaning Be one for whom the guest is God - embodies perfectly our approach to offering an authentic Indian experience in every single dish we serve.

Since opening our doors in 1994, Emperor of India has always consistently offered traditional northern Indian specialities, based on family recipes passed down from generation to generation, using only the best quality, purposely-imported ingredients, married to locally sourced fresh produce.

Our uncompromising approach to genuine quality and tradition has, over the past 3 decades won Emperor of India numerous accolades and rave reviews from our loyal clientele, and we hope to welcome you too to experience that uniquely Indian "Khane-ka-Maza".

Suresh Tarachand, Director

    I can not recommend this place enough. Not only was the food some of the best Indian dishes we've had but the service was amazing. They were so attentive. Will definitely come back when we are in Malta again.
