We went to this restaurant looking for ambience as well as good food. What I like about the restaurant is the area where you can sit in the floor and eat the way Hindi people actually do. This time around we sat at their normal...More

I enjoyed the meal. the entree was big enough for two people. wish the restaurant had included small side items such as pickles or salad, Everything we asked for, they wanted to charge. The environment is very good and gets crowded late night,

There are better Indian restaurants in Panama City. The naan bread arrived dripping in oil and didn't appear to have been near the oven, the curry sauce was watery and the meat had clearly been in there for some considerable time. Service was pleasant and...More

Masala restaurant is close to the financial district and via españa. It is small personal, tasty, healthy and authentically Indian. Finally have a favorite in Panama. the staff is professional, friendly, and patient. They explain the menu and recommend dishes for beginners.

There's nothing especially bad about Masala, but there's nothing stand out either. The food quality is ok but not amazing. Overall, the prices are too high compared to other Indian places around the city so I'd go to them instead.

Food is absolutely excellent. The decoration makes the place very cozy and intimate. There are few places in Panama where the food is always exceptional, no matter what time or day of the week. I am a regular costumer.
