My wife and I have now adopted this as our favourite Aussie Indian kitchen. Great food, with very interesting dishes and flavours. A fine young staff who know their products and seem to enjoy working for the boss.

Loved the food and atmosphere. Probably being a bit harsh on service but they wait staff seemed a bit inexperienced. However seemed to improve as night went on. Wii be back

I booked this place on a recommendation from a friend and it was to be a catch up with my besties. We were so impressed with the service and also that we were allowed to take our time chat enjoy amazing food and gorgeous gin cocktails while catching up. Highly recommended Masala Kitchen.

We liked the food and the gin cocktails were great. While the waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable, we were given a table away from the main area and as a result the service did suffer. Overall we enjoyed it and would come back again.

Great food and service. Music (outside) was a little loud and made converstion difficult. Cocktails were a little expensive. Enjoyed the food and experience.

These may seem such a silly little things to mention after such a lovely evening. There were five of us, who came to dinner last Friday. The food & service was excellent and despite the rain, we loved our table outside (and we did not get wet). My suggestion is to make sure your 'menus' are clean and not scruffy. It is not a good look to offer menus that look scruffy. Also can you include Schweppes Tonic on your list of available tonic waters. We thought the tonic water with our gins seemed 'flat' (both varieties). Apart from that, the night was excellent!

We had previously been to the Moore Park restaurant and were excited to see that one open in Lane Cove. Food was really delicious, service was attentive if a little forgetful (my husband ordered a second beer which never arrived and they had to be reminded to bring out the side dishes). It was a Monday night and quite busy as they are the only place open in the Canopy at that time. Lovely sitting outside looking out across the beautiful green space the council has created. Highly recommended. Keep it up guys!

Loved it ! Food was brilliant. Felt Covid safe. Only downside was that my cocktail was taken away when I hadn’t finished it.

We enjoyed our evening and the food was amazing! The service definitely needs improving and I’m not blaming the staff as I believe it is due to a lack of training. It is a new restaurant and I really hope it does well but the young staff just need some more guidance. Will definitely be back!

They claim their Butter Chicken is the best - it is! Pappadurms are average; Rice is excellent; side dishes are unusual - mango chutney is very small; yoghurt raita is large; peshwari nan was a little thin on content versus other places We had a table for two outside - that was fine - but kids running up and down in the space between the outside tables affected the ambience. We will return

Even though I booked a week in advance we were put at a table by the kitchen. When I asked to move to another table we were put on a table which wasn’t much better . We had to move outside on the lane after our meal.

Not sure that live music was needed, there was enough ambience without it. Wait staff were run off their feet; it was difficult to get their attention at times. Tables weren't cleared ; it was a little disappointing considering we were trying it for the first time, for a special occasion.

We enjoyed the food very much, but we felt a bit neglected by the service. It took 45 minutes to get a drink. The waiter sat us down out the back and said he’d get us a drinks menu, and that didn’t arrive, I had to ask for one after being sat down for 15 minutes. Just felt unimportant

It seems when I book online I get the worst table in the restaurant. So had to negotiate with waitress to change us to another nicer table not in the back darkest section of the restaurant. Food is great and interesting but don't hink saying med chilli helped at all as everything was very mild.

Fish curry the best food item. Crab entree, butter chicken fair standard fare!
