A TOUCH OF CLASS IN THE FORM OF A MADRAS

After a long day shopping in the city, and before we headed home on a 2 hour journey, we decided to get a bight to eat. We stumbled upon Mama Masala by chance whilst searching for a chinese restaurant we once visited. From the moment we entered the premises we felt welcome. We were greeted at the... read more

Mama Masala is one of the best restaurants in the city, offering both Indian and Italian cuisine. The Naan is made fresh on site in a proper tandoor, with a video camera if you want to watch. The upstairs dining room overlooks the Foyle, and is suited for both intimate and large family occasions. The Indian dishes are really the... More

Good choice of all the usual curry favourites and pizza to boot as well. So a good place to go in a group. Views of the river are excellent.

As regular visitors to mama masala over the last few years both restaurant and take away, and I have highly recommended it to many, I feel that over the last couple of months the take aways have been disappointing - not up to the usual standard! Haven't been in the restaurant recently, but the take aways would put me off... More

Have eaten in the restaurant many times so thought we'd try out the takeaway. Ordered 2 king chicken pakora kebabs and they were gorgeous, especially with mixed sauce! Unfortunately, however, the garlic naan bread was overly blackened and so ruined the taste with an overwhelming burnt flavour. Not so good first impression but after pulling off most of the burnt...

Not in the mood for Indian we opted for pizza's at this Indian / Italian restaurant on the banks of the Foyle river. The pizza's were great. The service was very good and the staff was friendly.

Don't be fooled by the exterior and the Italian/Indian thing. Once your in and upstairs, you can see right away that this is a nice place. The ambience, staff and view are excellent.
