I loathed my visit to this place, perhaps for the same reason I loathed eating at every restaurant in New York City. The atmosphere is highly swanky! They must have hired out the most expensive interior decorators to give Malawi's a comfortable upperclass tone to it. Everything from the lighting, to the paint, to the cliché African tribal masks on the wall, to even details as intricate as the silverware were all swanky and unique. The food was overpriced! It was (add expletive) overpriced! The large amount we were paying, I feel, was not equivalent to the amount of food served. To dissuade its angry and hungry customers from rioting in their facility, Malawi's has inspirational banners on the wall pretty much saying you are paying a ton of money for your food to help feed the poor starving children in Africa. What a heartfelt thought and a brilliant business plan. It makes me want to start a swanky Tibetan restaurant, charge 50 dollars for a swanky grain of rice and then tell the customers through ethnic song and dance that they are feeding the poor starving pygmy natives in Tibet!
Needless to say, we had to run across the parking lot to the Macaroni Grill to eat more food since we starved ourselves to feed an African child at Malawi's Pizza. This turned into a very expensive date night for my wife and me.
If you don’t want to eat, but feel charitable, then I highly recommend Malawi's Pizza.
