fine finger food

A really relaxed eating experience with really tasty food. The atmosphere was busy but cordial with friendly staff and quick service. However the seating felt a little cramped!

Very friendly staff and excellent service. Food was absolutely brilliant. Atmosphere is very homely. Had a fantastic, fun evening. We were made to feel very welcome and not hurried along which was great as there were 28 of us booked in. Would strongly recommend the Indian dishes. A1

Went for a meal (again!) last week. This time we were lucky enough to get a window seat. Beautiful views, friendly efficient staff and gorgeous food. Wanted to try something different and by my description of my tastes the waitress suggested I try the traditional curry. thought that a bit unadventurous as I would always go for something different.

Been here twice. Nice to get table at window overlooking the river Foyle. Service initially slow considering few customers were in. Nice food and atmosphere good. Two Indian courses for £12.99 early bird menu.

We visit Mama Masala on a regular basis and have always had an excellent experience. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is excellent. Having spent some time in India it is great to have an authentic India restaurant close to home.

Seemed to be tapping our feet constantly for some kind of service. Took 15 mins to bring drinks and waited over half an hour between courses. Our main course arrived over an hour after we ordered it. My poor wife's birthday celebrations were ruined by a poor vegetable bhuna which tasted like boiled vegetables. No cutlery was at the table... More
