Our second visit - just as good, if not better

This is becoming a habit my wife and I have gotten into - visit Banff, go for an Indian. The menu is extensive, it will take me many visits before I have tried all that i want to try.

I visited this restaurant on several ocasion. The food is always delicious, the servers provided us with great service and I realy love the atmosphere of this place. Everytime we spend the day in Banff, we stop by for the lunch buffet. For the price is the best you can get in town without eating a fast food. I'll be... More

Masala restaurant was recommended by staff at our hotel as being wonderful for both food and service. We were not disappointed. Both were fabulous and we returned twice in four nights.. Best butter chicken I've ever had and the staff we're so friendly and welcoming. Thanks Ani, hope to see you again.

While in Banff we decided on Masala. It is so far the best Indian food I have had in Canada. Service was excellent, price was as expected and the food was awsome.

Decided to try this authentic Indian cuisine restaurant located just off of Banff Ave and I was glad we did. The food was very good and the service was pleasant and quick. I would definitely come back on my next visit to Banff.

My husband and I came for an early supper with another couple and their four children. The highlights- flavour. The chefs in the kitchen have excelled in creating a menu full of flavour. Every dish had a differing taste profile providing us with a sensory delight. We love traditional Indian heat, when we ask for "hot" dishes we specify "India"... More
