If you want quality, this is the place.

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.

After being in Ireland for nearly two weeks, we were craving something spicy and full of flavor. Mama Masala delivered! I never think the food is spicy enough in the states...I can order a 5-spicy and while it's spicy, it's never spicy enough. I order the Phaal. Wow. Hands-down, this was the hottest thing I have ever eaten and the... More

Confess to being somewhat sceptical of this restaurant on arrival, and the plastic laminated menus looked a little tacky. But the food was incredible, and the service top class. Well priced meal, and good choice of beers on offer made this an excellent evening. So good I returned the following day!

I've eaten in the restaurant a few times and loved it- great food and service. Unfortunately the takeaway is consistently slow and while the food is presumably as good as upstairs the staff on 2 occasions have left me sitting waiting for it (once it was ready) for over 10mins as they 'forgot' I was there- so by the time...

Fantastic food. As we were early it wasn't busy so they let us sit in the window. Well worth asking for a window seat on a nice day. Will be back.

Have ate here once. Great, novel idea of serving both Italian and Indian fare, both of which is very good!

We really enjoyed our starter which was very tasty and I believe given free of charge, We all had the same main course Chicken Tikka Masala which was really good , quite hot ! Nice atmosphere and warm and good... More

Fantastic food and service as always Thank You Daniel. Came in with the family after being abroad for a few years. Tasty food and massive portions :) Lovely flavours and the Peshwari Naan is one of the best i have eaten. BYOB is a good idea which people make the most of.

I don't know why I waited so long to try this restaurant, I've heard great things about it from a lot of people and I've tried all the other Indian restaurants in Derry. This might just be my favourite. Our party of 4 ordered off the Indian menu only, so I can't comment on the Italian dishes at all. The... More
