Was at mama masala for 1st time last night in a group and the food was gorgeous and the staff curious and attentive especially Shauna. Reasonably priced and lovely setting and the view to outside is great for anybody wanting to relax with good food and watch the world go by. Will definitely go back again.

It was adequate but was a little miffed they got both parts of my meal wrong and it wasn't busy and the order was written down. It filled a gap but I wouldn't rush back as there are other restaurants which are better.

Tried it again on a visit to Derry after a year and find it as good as ever. Everything they do here is excellent - the pizza, especially the hot Indian variants; the vegetarian dishes;... More

My sister and I and our families (kids ranging from 6-12) stumbled upon this place while visiting Derry. My sister and her husband love Indian food while the rest of us did not and since we had the option of pizza and were tired of walking we decided to give it a try. The front of the restaurant is deceiving... More

Although you'd never know it, considering that the outside resembles most run-of-the mill fast food restaurants, this is a GREAT restaurant. I had memorable meals--twice--during my recent visit to Derry. Also, I should mention that the staff was very pleasant, truly friendly.

We went to mama masala last night after quite a long walk around in derry looking for a decent restaurant. We were placed very closed to rather loud group of people but we could change our seats somewhere else without any problem. We order a tap beers and a main chefs special main dishes. It was delicious. Chilli tikka masala... More
