I have a gluten allergy and they couldn't have been more helpful. Felt really specially treated. The meal was delicious. Visiting from the UK and was lovely having a chat from one of the girls who had lived in Scotland. A truly splendid evening. Thank you x

Masala means "spices". The Owner/Chef knows his spices. He combines the raw ingredients to result in a Palate-pleasing experience as they dance on the tastebuds. The Restaurant also prepares Continental Meals.

I tried Masala in the summer of 2014. I have had a lot of Indian and Pakistani cuisine over the years, being from Toronto, and unfortunately Masala was not very great if you've tried other Indian restaurants. Having lived in Northern Ontario, I do understand that the palate up north and in smaller communities tends to be less adventurous and... More

Stopped by with my family on Saturday for lunch in between our kids' track races. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. We mentioned that we had never had Indian food (small town born and raised). Our waitress showed us the lunch buffet. We loved the butter chicken and springrolls. My wife loved the garlic and cilantro dip. Our kids couldn't... More

I don't get how this place had great views unless the customers have never had Indian before so they have nothing to compare it to. I got the smallest servings I e ever received and the food wasn't just mild but the flavour was non existent. I'm going to throw it all out. That was a waste of a lot... More

We are very sorry your meal did not meet your expectations . After running our restaurant for several years we have come to realize that our cuisine does not favour all palates . However, in this instance it is a shame since we were asked to get an order and you were 2 hours late picking it up . In... More

I ate here twice on business and honestly couldn't wait to get back. Second visit we were running late and the owner stayed open so we could eat. The butter chicken is heavenly, I really enjoyed the paneer dish and with the naan and rice that was perfect makes this restaurant one of my favourites. You won't be disappointed!
