My god, the perfect Chinese restaurant (Mandarin) next door has all gone up in fire! So we tried Mama Masala. Very huge choice, looking well on the menu. Indian and Italian seems to blend together here. But why not some personal attention? A small talk? Instead, it's like a machine. They don't really care. Think about the table, when you... More

We've eaten here a few times and had takeaway too and the food has always been great, except for the chips. I know it's an Indian and not a chippy but the chips we had last night for takeaway weren't even edible! It's only a small thing but my OH loves his chips and says he won't go back!

Had dined here 2 years ago and decided to return when staying nearby. The food was even better than I remembered. We ate from the Indian menu and it was gorgeous. My only complaint was I couldn't finish my main as there was so much! Will return in the future!

I would defiantly recommend if you are passing through Derry to stop here you will not regret it. I eat out of both the restaurant and takeaway and they have... More

Visited here during the Derry Jazz Festival-the place was busy, but the service was quick and efficient. The Indian/Italian mix is an absolute bonus for me as OH doesn't like curries and I LOVE them-win win. I had the traditional curry which was great, but wanted to try the hottest one which I had never heard of...pfaal or whatever--the waiter... More

We ordered a takeaway and by the time we got home discovered they'd got our order wrong. We ordered chicken jalfrezi, mixed vegetable curry, nan bread chips and pilau rice. Instead of the jalfrezi we got some kind of mixed meat platter. It had kebab meat and chicken. We decided to eat it anyway but it was in our opinion... More

Was told by a friend about this place so decided to try it out last weekend while we were staying in Londonderry. I like Indian restaurants and food but unfortunately my wife doesn't like spicy food so this limits where we can dine out, as Mama Masala advertises itself as Indian / Italian we thought well, at least she will...
