Restaurant is run by family members and all or bosses asking a waiter to pass a plate of roti to other table hurts their ego. Food was overly priced and didn't taste like indian food.

Average food quality, somewhat out of Center. Prices quite high compared to food quality. Food tastes somewhat close to Indian food. Even though we were the only other customer, very little attention provided. Main course comes with Rice. No frills.

The Masala is a bit up a busy street away from the central part of Luzern. Looking for an Indian meal late one Saturday night, I lucked out in getting a seat but learned that they were only serving a buffet. I opted for the one-plate version after ordering a glass of rioja. The tables were almost all in one... More

This restaurant has nothing to do with real Indian food! It is some random european mishmash made to look orange/red and pose as Indian food. Plus it is more expensive than other places! I understand that people have to modify the taste to suit Europeans but this guy has totally lost it. For actual Indian food lovers, don't go here.... More

Visited with a couple of friends for dinner. Ordered chicken kurma, beef masala and chicken tandoori. With exception of the Chicken tandoori, the food was quite blend. No typical indian taste to the food, no spyciness no twist. just boring. But I have to say that the service was very friendly and good. If the food would have been better... More

The food here is tasty and authentic Indian food though a bit too spicy. Their garlic naans are huge and quantity is good. The prices are on the higher side but that's everywhere in Switzerland. Overall a good place if you are craving for Indian food in lucerne.

Well atleast the best that we had in the 3 days that we were in Lucerne ! Took the effort to walk an extra ~500mtrs to get here (from Kanchi) and we were glad we did. Good Indian food selection. Ambience is average but better than Kanchi. Pricing is similar to Kanchi. They served delicious and spicy (at our request)... More

The Ownerfamily ("Donnie and Ronnie) are very friendly and give you a warm welcome-feeling. The food taste very good and the Banana-Leaf-Menu is just great. It is also suitable for Vegans (please ask in advance). Also they got a few vegetarian menus. We like this location.
