Visited Mama Masalas with a group of friends and a great night was had by all. Food was delicious and great to have a choice between Indian and Italian. We were served by a girl with short dark hair who was very friendly and polite. Overall a great experience!!!! Will visit again.

we had a party of 12 and it was quite disappointing to be honest, the food was just ok and the only thing I could really say is that you can take your own wine or beer in apparently, which I found out after the occasion much to my annoyance.

The prospect of indian italian fusion was a bit off putting but it was delicious The food was lovely, and the fusion actually did work. However, the drinks were disappointing, the cost of the 'cocktails' for cheap cocktail mixes and ice felt over priced and were disappointing. There was also a hen party in the resteraunt who had whistles and... More

Thanks for your appreciation regarding our unique fusion of Indian foods and its taste. Besides that our sincere apologies for the chaos created by the group of Hen party girls,which was a bit annoying and I myself as a manager tried my level best to take care of it at my level but the girls were so not in themselves...
