I'd give this cafe/restaurant 7/10. The service was good and polite considering we visited on a busy Saturday afternoon. The food and drinks were also good. What spoilt the whole experience was tables left uncleared too long and the toilets needed cleaning (but then that is partially up to the customers to leave them as they find them!!!). Value was...

Having discovered this restaurant in August and raved about it we returned around six or seven times in a matter of weeks and had equally wonderful experiences. Then we went on one ocaision, the usual partner that we know was not there and the other partner was in charge. The food was awful, the portions were measly and the whole... More

I visited The Cafe Masala with my family for my son's Birthday treat.We had a variety of starters and popadoms which were all very nice, as were the different rices and naan breads that we tried. The curries were a real disappointment, the mild curries were far too sweet and sickly. The balti was ok but there was a lot... More

As a regular ''eating out'' person I had never heard of this place until a work colleague mentioned it and how nice it was. Now I love my Indian food and regularly visit a couple of other mediocre Indian restaurants in the area just because I like the taste of the food not the taste of their food. What a... More

After eating at very good established restaurants for a long time now, cafe masala is probably the worst meal I have eaten to date. Meals were over laced with far too much sugar, and lacking any content or flavours... I've had ready meals that tasted far better. The manager was very rude once we confronted him about the matter, although... More

Having been a fan of asian and indian food for forty years and having eaten it in many different destinations (including leeds, bradford and brick lane in london) this is the best ever. The food has depths of flavour (without burning if that is what you want), the portions are generous, the service is friendly and informative and I cannot... More

me and husband stayed in the new park hotel which is above cafe masala. I just want to start by praising the staff they were so friendly and smiling happy to help at all times, we started in the lounge area which is warm and inviting and drank some lovely jack rabbit. At the table we looked through the menu... More

While there are several good Indian restaurants in Harrogate, in my opinion Cafe Masala is the best by strides. Between take-away and dine-in my wife and I eat there about once a month and have never been disappointed. The menu has several unique dishes that you won't find at any other restaurant, many of which show off the chef's creativity.... More

We went here with some Aussie relatives in May. Our favourite curry house (The Mujib) had closed earlier this year and we'd been having curries from a takeaway instead of a restaurant. Cafe Masala isn't far from home and our Aussies wanted a curry to eat out so we thought we'd give it a try. After some poppadoms, we had... More

Went here tonight, it's done out very nice inside, I wonder if the location is an issue as it was pretty empty, the starters and pickles were delicious and the main meals were very good, only niggle was the lamb curry we had, it was a bit overpowering with mustard, would still recommend though, extensive interesting menu.
