I found a worm in my food and they didn't even offer to make me new food or refund my money. Straight bull. Never again will I eat there.

We had a great lunch. He took advantage of the lunch buffet and She was helped by the terrific staff for gluten free and dairy free choices from the menu! Excellent food. The decor is a little tired but the food and staff make up for that.

Been here a few time over the past few years....since 2009. We were told the Chef(s) had changed since our last visit, but we needn't have worried. The portions are large...we shared our rice and Naan bread. Visited twice over the new year and found the service to be very friendly. You have a choice as to how spicy you... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food was good, we particularly enjoyed the freshly made mint yoghurt, and the portions were huge. We also liked that the food had some spice to it, If you asked for 'medium' you got a good level of spiciness! Prices were around $15-$20 for a dish, it's a little more than we normally... More

Overall - Great food, huge portions a bit on the pricey side. Good - We ordered the Chicken Korma (Chicken Curry) and Saag Paneer (not on the menu, but can be ordered, its spinach and cheese cubes). We ordered naan (bread) to go along our meal. I do have to admit that one entree could have easily filled us up,... More

I have been wanting to try this place out for years, but never got around to it. Finally I visited recently with my wife. It was a quiet time in November, so it was pretty empty and the service was fast and very polite. This is the best Indian food I have tasted since I moved to Canada from UK.... More

We were in Banff a couple of months ago and went to have an Indian Curry here. It was very busy but wirth the wait. We went back to Banff last weekend and could hardly wait to go back to Masala's for another curry. This time we skipped the appetizers and went for a curry and rice each. The young... More

Been there a few times for lunch and it is a good value. "Buffet" consists of 3 main dish and a few salad options and I think 1-2 dessert options, so not so much, but it is all you can eat.

You can smell this restaurant halfway down the block, and the aroma draws you in to this charming and friendly spot. They have a great lunch buffet and a huge menu of delicious options.

My spouse, now adult daughter and I ate here during our recent Canadian Rockies road trip and consider it one of our best experiences overall. We are all fond of Indian food so tend to opt for it when we can, and this was one of the best meals we have shared anywhere. Our dinner included mango lassi drinks, chicken... More
