Again, this was only one of many visits to this fine restaurant. Serving both a great selection of Indian, and Italian food, with great views over the River Foyle. Service is very friendly, with in house recommendations. The food is so tasty, full of flavour, and very well portioned. Give it a try.

Me my wife and 2 young daughters had wonderful early evening meal. The flavours we well balanced not too over powering. The 2 girls had pasta but preferred our Indian food, after tasting there's I agree with them. My advice is go for a lamb dish.

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.

Mama Masala is still by far the best Indian restaurant in the north-west of Ireland, and one of the best in Ireland for Indian food! 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
