We visited for Sunday dinner. We had walked in on Saturday without a booking and were advised the restaurant was fully booked and that there would be a 35 minute wait for takeaway, so we tried again for Sunday after booking. We were seated at a table near an open balcony door on quite a cool and... read more

Loved our meal at this fabulous venue. Food was excellent. Selection of kebabs and a lamb curry. Papadums were light and none greasy. Raita was spicy and smooth. Will be going again. Recommend this place for anyone with a passion for Indian food.

One of the best Indian Restaurants we have been to - we're originally from the UK, we know our curries! Everything is beautifully presented from the decor, to the food to the excellent service. If you like Indian food you'll find something you like at Masale Shanti. An added bonus is that it's one of the few restaurants on the... More

From the moment you enter this cosy restaurant you are made to feel like old friends. Great ambiance and amazing staff, then the food arrives plentiful and so delicious. Masala Shanti is the number one restaurant on Mount Tamborine for very good reason!!

We had dinner on New Years Eve and could not fault the food and service. With one vegan in our group they happily adapted a few vegetarian dishes to vegan. We'll be back!

The butter chicken was however disappointing none of the flavour from other restaurants more like a tomato based sauce out of a bottle. The kulfi my... More

This was our second time. Tandoori Prawns were bit spicy but just as we like. Vindaloo was superb. Good service. Bit pricy but affordable.
