We had an evening with friends of 20 on 17/02/2017. Wow, what can I say.... the best Indian in town. As you enter you can smell Indian spices. The atmosphere in the restaurant is good. The staff were very polite and attended to all of us. The food was outstanding. Taking into account it is not London Chutney Mary, the... More

Yes. Masala is a great curry house in Dorchester. It's your standard curries, well cooked, great attentive staff and amazing flavours. I tired the Tawa chicken- which contains cheese? Random? I thought. Turns out it was the best curry on our table. Would definitely reccomend this place, cheaper than the Raj too.

Excellent service and food. Very busy but all the staff made you feel special. It was my son's 21st and they couldn't do enough for us to make it a memorable evening. Definitely going back and soon. Advisable to book a table.

Read the reviews and thought we'd try this place as we were going to the cinema in the town. This restaurant is more expensive than our usual haunt in Weymouth where we are never disappointed but it's nice to have a change sometimes. In retrospect a regretful maxim on this occasion! One or two of the waiters were pleasant, one... More

I would definitely recommend Masala restaurant. Although the restaurant itself is basic both outside & in, it is clean with great service and delicious food at a good price. This was our first visit and we will be recommending and coming back again soon!

Just what you want from a curry house. Good food at a good price. We had the King Prawn Korai and King Prawn Pathia with rice and Pashwari Naan all cooked excellently. Will definitely be going back.

Caught out trying to find a place to eat with senior parents and 5 year old kid, stumbled on this Indian place off Dorchester main high street. Food was good and service was quick. Though food had Bangaldeshi touch to it, would say that had good taste to it.

Visited on recommendation by a local while on holiday. The outside looks a bit battered (don't be put off!), but on entering the restaurant was lovely and clean and well presented. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was some of the best I've had. The saag aloo in particular was superb, cooked in a dry style, something I've... More
