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 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

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
