I have been to The Massala on quite a few occasions and it never fails to deliver hence it is always very well booked. If you want flavour and great food then The Massala delivers on all fronts. If you want a boozy weekend curry forget it. The staff are always a pleasure and the food is delivered hot and... More

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.

Visited last month after reading reviews on here! Food was fantastic and the staff were friendly! Only fault would be that they didn't have any of my drink choices left in stock which was disappointing but the food more than made up for it!

Went here with my partner and adult son. First impression. Very clan and the staff were welcoming. Went to table immediately and got served drinks very quickly. The waiter kept passing us saying he will be with us in a couple of minutes. It seemed quite a while before they came over. They were really friendly though. My son tried... More
