Make a reservation for this restaurant - we left it to the last minute and only called up about lunchtime and they could only fit us in if we were out by 7pm. I can see why they are so busy now. People were choosing to sit in extra seats outside on the deck with no heating rather than miss... More

My husband and I has dinner here. Lovely table setup, quiet dining and excellent service by friendly staff. The dishes were varied as we have different tastes and they were excellent. We had entrees and mains but no room for dessert. Based on the quality of the dishes we had i would have liked to try them. The rice served... More

The Masala Shanti provides a relaxing and very pleasant atmosphere. The service is friendly, very efficient and attentive, but not overbearing. The best part though, as you would expect in a restaurant, is the food. We have eaten here on a few occasions now and the food is fabulous, form the entrees to the deserts. The menu choice is excellent... More

Tasty Indian food. We like our food to be "Indian" hot so the hot wasn't hot enough for us. Though the staff were very helpful and supplied us with extra chillies, which was just the kick the meals needed.

My husband and I had a really delicious meal here. I am extremely fussy about Indian food but could not fault the flavours or the choice of dishes on offer. The service was wonderful and the restaurant was quiet enough that we could easily have a conversation which is often not the case in Sydney where we come from. I... More

We have eaten here regularly for about five years, visiting with family whenever we visit the mountain. The food is very tasty with authentic spicing (based on our travels in India, as well as a couple of decades in London, where Indian food is a national obsession). It isn't the cheapest menu but you can clearly taste that they use... More

We are locals and have struggled in the past to recommend a place for quality food or somewhere to dine out with visitors when they visit the mountain. Masala Shanti is simply put - our place to go to. Able to meet the needs of those with very mild palates and those who like spicy & hot food. The sauces... More
