Never been to an Indian restaurant that didn’t serve samosas however always a first. We have had better curries but a reasonable attempt. Recommended for a change.

Expensive but the best restaurant in town. Escargot and fillet steak which my son said the best steak he had even eaten.

This was another work related dining experience. It has an enjoyable atmosphere and nice view. The food was buffet meat, potatoes and rice. Nothing spectacular but tasty. I am not sure if they have Al Cart menu but if they do it will be worth trying.

Casa Mia offers a menu with a variety of pasta dishes, steaks, pork and chicken inspired from the European continent. We import our seafood directly from the coast of South Africa and Mozambique. Our menu also includes some of the best steaks available in Malawi . The restaurant is well situated in a quiet suburb close to Blantyre city center and has accommodation and conferencing facilities.

Infront of Twiga Lounge Club
Food is always good - but not exceptional - they unfortunately do not use cloth serviettes like they used to - now using the cheapest thinnest paper ones. Winter time - cozy fire. Unfortunately do not make their great chicken liver pate anymore.

We called the hotel ahead to ask for prices and availability. We got to know that it was 60 USD for a double room, which was a bit more than we were expecting, but we thought OK. When we arrived, the receptionist told us that the price was for one person, and two persons is 70 USD. We went to see the room, which was not in a very good state, but it was late, and we had been driving the whole day, so we thought OK. Then the owner came, and told us that the price was 80 USD if the second person wants to have breakfast... I was just laughing by then, but he was serious. Then, calculating the price in Kwacha, he added another 10 percent on the rate, and asked if we wanted a receipt. If we wanted a receipt he would have to add vat, which means another 16.5 per cent. So we went from 60 to over a hundred in a matter of minutes. The location and the pool are nice, but the standard of the room does not nearly justify that price. I recommend you find another place to stay in Blantyre.

In the historic Mandala House together with the historic society and the La Caverna Art gallery and store
The building is fantastic, the craft shop offers a nice selection of art crafts from Malawi and the region. They have also a nice small selection of Blantyre history books. The restaurant is nicely located outside, it is average in menu choices, the service is a bit slow due to the fact that they have few people waiting tables.

The Blue elephant is a lively local pub offering fantastic buffet lunches during the week for a quick inexpensive meal. There is also an a la carte menu with a variety of bub style and continental dishes all day/night.Ideally situated for a quick drink on the way home or for an evening of entertainment, "The Blue" is a must for a lively night out, having live bands on Wednesdays and a disco every Friday/Saturday
Me and some colleagues went there on a Wednesday evening. We had burgers, steaks and fries. The burgers were of the I&J frozen variety, the "steaks" were minute steaks, the bread was hard and the fries were extremely oily and the oil used was really old. The waitress was slow and didn't know what was on the menu. At least it serves cold Carlsberg at a decent price.

"finest Vegetarian Restaurant In Malawi" Free Wi-fi
Undoubtedly a best Indian vegetarian food joint in the town. Authentic Indian taste, wonderful service with a smiling face make this place most sought after among the Indian restaurants in the town.

Picasso is a very pleasant restaurant for any meal. Went there on a business trip but with some free time, and we needed it as service was a bit slow.
The food was pretty good. They have some choices for fish which is a plus on this landlocked country which makes it my first choice in Blantyre whenever I want to eat it.
