Wonderful food

Luckily for us we were warned to book in as this restaurant was very busy on a Friday night. The service was excellent and very friendly and the food was delicious. We did order two entrees, two mains and a naan bread but unless you are both big eaters or very hungry you might find this is too much... read more

My wife and I just had an amazing Indian meal at Masala Shanti, the service was friendly and competent and the food was full of flavour and all at a reasonable cost. Despite having many other options we both decided to come back again tomorrow night and try one of the chefs specials Dosa. Hope it's as good as tonight.

My fiance and i love indian food. Unfortunately this restraunt did not even get close to average. For us we felt it lacked flavour and naan was soggy. But ay try another time as other reviews are so great.

The flavour blew me away, fresh ingredients and great service. Must eat here! Try the mango lassi to sip, tuck into the huge crepe and lamb mince... or the creamy butter chicken.

Possibly the best Indian ever, so tasty with lots of different Northern Indian flavours with delicious chef speciality. Staff are just beautiful- friendly and helpful. Price wise it was amazing- four adults, could not finish all the food including dessert for less that $120. BYO so that makes it cheaper.

If you haven't tried Indian food, this is the place to try it! Very clean, great ambience, and huge selection on menu. I particularly love the lentil crepe (great for gluten free people) filled with tasty lamb mince and minted yoghurt, but Chicken Korma, Chicken Tikka Masala, Samosas etc See menu here http://img.dimmi.com.au/menu/25631-masala-shanti-mt-tamborine-menu-dine%20in.pdf

Nice ambience. Excellent service. Not too pricey. Liked malai chicken tikka. The quantity is value for money. We had good time. Will go there again certainly.

We have been going to Masala Shanti regularly for many years now. It is first choice for an occasion. The food is sensational, Shiju is a master at his craft and will not serve anything that does not meet his very high standards. He and Alex and their team are attentive, friendly and very good at what they do. Can... More
