Close enough to both Coventry and Leicestershire to lure intrepid foodies out, Malancha is a surefire destination for a good night of adventurous Anglo-Indian banqueting. Malancha's mandate is to bring the best of Anglo-Indian cookery to an eager audience drawn from Dunchurch, Rugby, Coventry and Leicestershire. The dishes here respect tradition but are bold enough to incorporate more than a modicum of contemporary flair – the wizards at work in this Daventry Road kitchen know their masala back to front and know how to please modern aficionados of South Asian cuisine as well. Offering an Indian Buffet menu during the day on Sunday, and a special and weekly-changed thali menu on the evening of the same day, this place is pumping on the sabbath.
Great deals for party bookings keep Malancha busy with those looking to dine like a Mughal emperor in celebration mode, but it’s the superlative a la carte selection that keeps true fans of Indian food coming back for more. Some of the best dishes whipped up at Malancha's Dunchurch restaurant are the celebration dishes, available only to dine-in guests or for takeaway.
