Very good Indian food

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

Good restaurant but could have been better. Service was average. Quality of food was good, Quantity was average and Taste was good but remember to tell them to make it 'spicy' to suit Indian taste buds.

We came across this place about a year ago and now went there again yesterday: another very good experience. The atmosphere is nice and even on a Saturday evening the place doesn't get as loud as many others in Zurich. The staff is welcoming and very attentive, the food is good, the prices reasonable. We'll come back again.

They gave us only half of the dishes we ordered forgot the rice, the chutneys and brought us also the wrong appetizer, but price remained the same. The chicken was not that good and the rest was average. It is by far to expensive for this quality of food and low standard of service. I mean 30.- swiss francs for... More
