My and my son decided to give a try to this restaurant as it was nearest to our hotel. We ordered massala special grill and karahi chicken. The only thing special with tandoori grill was the cucumber grilled with meat .never seen this anywhere else. The karahi chicken was 4 pieces of tandoori chicken with standard sauce poured ovef it.seems... More

Atrocious service on all accounts, accompanied by a noisy and cramped environment. The samosa starter was dry and stodgy and lacked sufficient chutney. The lamb curry took a considerable amount of time to arrive and then turned up semi-warm. The chicken tandoori was nice but lacked enough meat to warrant it a higher review. We checked the bill at the... More

Located in the popular Bahnhofstrasse shopping area in Zurich, the restaurant is perfectly located & serves very good Indian cuisine. The staff are very hospitable & considerate towards and any special requirements that families travelling with kids may have. Highly recommended.

I've been to Masala a couple times, and always like to come back. The food is very authentic and they know what they are doing. The service is very friendly and helps you to explain what you should eat in case you don't understand the menu ;) I also love their take out option, as I sometimes like to enjoy... More

We visited this restaurant and the waiter was very rude and started talking racial about Indians. If you feel proud to be Indian you should never visit this restaurant. Extremely bad behavior and no apology for tthis rude behaviour. Will never visit.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants we experienced during our stay. The food is very tasty and courtesy extended by the staff is just awesome. Located very close to city center and easily accessible. Look for 2 for 1 coupons in coupon book you get at tourist info center in Zurich central railway station, to avail attractive discount.

It looks quite nice inside and the food is too expensivefor the quality. I had a vindaloo, which was verging on being bland in spices and with only 4 tiny pieces of chicken in it. Then as is often the case in Zurich in restaurants, once they've served the mains you end up ignored. We had to bang glasses to... More
