We visited the restaurant a bit later on the evening when the place was maybe half full. We got really nice service, good recommendations and the food was very tasty. I especially liked the garlic nan!

We were looking for a nice Indian meal during our long vacation and were glad to find Masala. It's a fine dine Indian restaurant with good ambience and service. The kofta was very delicious. Though a little expensive but still worth a visit if you looking for good Indian food.

It looks like Indian, it smells like Indian but it's not Indian. Just a few tables, kitch decoration, Indian music and only Swiss guests.... More
