Kazan is a feast of a city. Cold winters and hot summers, Muslim minarets and Orthodox monasteries, the ancient archeological sites and the science city of Innopolis, forest steppes, taiga and the Great Silk Road all mix in the cauldron that is the Tatar capital. The result of this melting pot is the self-sufficient and self-assured third capital of Russia that each year extends a warm welcome to a million guests who come here to experience all sorts of impressions and emotions.

You are unlikely to notice this small Indian restraint when you are simply walking down the street. You have to know where to look to find it. The interior decorations are typical of an Indian establishment. The place is always packed (call for a reservation). Malabar's traditional Indian menu is not large, but very much to the point: various kinds of soup, biriyani rice, lamb verendra, machli tikka kebab (fish kebab). Malabar is pretty pricey, so if you are here for the first time and not sure what you want to order, the smart thing to do is to pick one of their sampling sets, which are big enough for two: chicken, fish, vegetarian, or the hefty dessert platter. Promotions happen at Malabar on a regular basis. For example, they will occasionally offer free watermelon, accompanied by the reminder that it is good for your kidneys. They stage what they call "green weeks" here, adding light veggie specialties to the menu.
