Had an absolutely superb evening at Masala. Food was outstanding -- delicious and the perfect level of spiciness. The pinwheel samosas were mouthwateringly delicious. We were made to feel very welcome and given containers to take the food we couldn't finish home with us. Loved being able to sit outside and undercover. Will be back very soon.

Everything, from the fit out, the Cocktails and Gins, to the modern version of Indian that Masala provides, really is outstanding. My favourite Indian restaurant by far.

Best value best tasting Indian food anywhere. The cocktails are amazing. The teas are amazing. The staff really know their stuff. It's just near perfect. It's a bit crowded noisy and not the atmosphere the great food deserves. But on a nice evening to sit outside and sip a cocktail and then eat. I think it's the best restaurant and cocktail bar anywhere in the area.

Some of the staff were very friendly, some seemed like they were being inconvenienced by customers. I appreciate that masks make it harder to communicate. Also, it would be great if we could book a high chair when booking online. Unfortunately by the time one became available, we had finished our meal. But overall it was a really lovely experience and we’d definitely go back!
