great food

This restaurant is one of my favorites. I love the buffet and chicken pad thai. This restaurant is run by a local family who know the value of great customer service. Centrally located with clean modern interior and great food this restaurant must be on your list of places to eat.

We have the opportunity to eat at this ethnic restaurant on a regular basis. I feel lucky to live in the same city where this top-quality food is served. The variety of food is vast. The chef is amazing. If you like Indian, Thai, Greek or Canadian food, it's all available. Everything is home made to order, or you can... More

Was in Dryden November 18 2015 for a grocery trip and decided to check out the reputable Masala. Walked in with intentions to check the menu, saw the buffet, had to stay. All food was delicious, service was prompt and professional. Had casual conversation with the owner and left with the feeling that I have to bring this experience to... More

Almost everything in the all you can eat buffet is gluten free! And very tasty. The fellow who was either the owner or chef walked us through the buffet and explained that all but four of the twenty or so dishes were wheat free. We had a delicious gluten free Indian buffet. And the wine! Highly drinkable glasses for 4.50,... More

Tried to place an order over the phone for pick up, and was hung up on twice by rude people. Went to the establishment to try to eat and there was no line, I think the staff were just being lazy and didn't want to work. After the treatment, and when the staff realized who I was, I would not... More

I would like to address the many inconsistencies in your review, I am whom you spoke to on the phone, and I am the owner and main operator of Masala Restaurant. I recall our phone conversation with extreme clarity - Never before have I interacted with such an ill-mannered individual. First and foremost, our restaurant is rather small, in terms... More

They are a family run restaurant, very hard working and there is good food for everyone. Pleasant atmosphere. One of the few restaurants to have a handicap assessable ramp to get in and if help is needed in any way are willing to help.

Found this place from trip advisor as we are passing thru Ontario to get to Alberta. Superb cuisine! Great buffet selection very nicely spiced East Indian choices. The milk cake was so yummy! Would recommend this place to anyone that enjoys authentic flavours of East India. (Didn't try the Greek or Thai items)
