O.k. not the most attractive frontage, but the food more than makes up for it. As we were in a group we opted for a set menu, did a bit of bartering and tailored it to what we wanted, the staff were very good in dealing with us. I'd heard good reports, and wanted a change from the mainstay of... More

As self-confessed curry addicts we wouldn't return if it wasn't up to scratch - and there's quite a few Indian restaurants on Teesside we wouldn't go back to - but the team at Massala never let us down. Their Thursday night deal is particularly... More

The best Indian in Middlesbrough by far! Great value for money and great service especially from the guy who drops take away food to door! He always arrives with a smile and is very helpful, they certainly are great at what they do :)

Went to The Massala for the first time and thought the food was gorgeous! There was only 2 of us in the whole restaurant though.. I don't understand why it was so quiet! Worth a go!
