A friend asked that we go for Indian cuisine. I chose the place and was surprised how good the food was. Loved Nimona Tikki in starters, and Lahsooni Palak and Banarasi Aloo Dum in main course. Great service.

Being 14th Nov it got quite busy post 830pm. The service was yet very fair & appreciate the promptness of the staff... A look around was enough to know the business of their work.... More

Think London West End pricing for Michelin starred Indian food and this is where Masala is pitching. How about RS450 for 300ml of local beer! Come on guys, you can take 35-40% off the menu prices and still make great margins. The... More

The quality of the food was very good. The black dal definitely gets a mention and so does the biryani. The kulfi an the angoor rabdi were also excellent. Bit pricey but the it's five start prices for you!!!

The food here was some of the best that we had on our visit. The wine, less so! We enjoyed the ambiance and the level of service, and the freshness of the dishes.

Had dinner here while we were staying at the hotel. The chef customized 1 of the dishes for us as we only wanted chicken breast and not dark meat chicken. We also had a paneer dish and the rose water martini. All the food and the service exceeded our expectations, the chicken dish was the best we've had in India.
