Tasty Indian food

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

... Restaurant on the Continent is always a challenge. With the recent change in menu and kitchen, Masala is on good course of getting there not only in relative, but also on absolute terms. The next big leap, should be educating their staff on Indian cuisine or employ Indian origin staff only. That way the request 'cooked like at home'... More

Tasty Indian food - remember to tell them to make it 'spicy' to suit Indian taste buds. Good location- 4 stops from HB station on tram 14. Warm ambience. Service was friendly but slow. Took them 30 mins podt appetisers to bring the main course, but the wait was well worth it. Nothing like warm indian food on a cold... More

Having read the reviews online, I was looking forward to some good Indian food in Zurich. The service was friendly. The place it's self is well decorated and it was full. The food was disappointing and expensive. The curry lacked freshness and spice. I think i will try a different Indian restaurant next time I am in town.
