Been the best & most consistent Indian restaurant for many a year in the BORO, the takeaway food is also very good!! I usually get Pathia or Jalfrazie.

The Masssala Indian Restaurant on Borough Road Middlesbrough is a family run business that always makes you feel welcome and special. It is ideal for couples or larger groups to relax and have an excellent meal - a good selection of drinks - at a prices that are very competitive. It gets 'top marks' from my wife and I.
