food was great but service let them down.

the food was so lovely, you can really taste the spices and the fresh ingredients. All very well cooked. Seemed to take a long time to get our drinks and food ordered I found this strange as we were the only table in there, the staff need to be a big friendlier and nicer, its very hard to find... read more

Visited Masa with a small group of friends and the food was fantastic as always! Great service and lovely atmosphere with modern decor. My favourite Indian restaurant around!

Hi... I was the manager at masa up until last weekend, when I turned up to work at the restaurant to find that we were no longer able to run business through the premises we have been using for the past 8 years. Unfortunately we don't have a 'good reason' yet as we are just as shocked as our customers...... More

Went there on Saturday evening with friends on my recommendation. I felt very disappointed and also embarrassed. Food had to be sent back and the food we had was not hot. It was not only us the table next to us also sent food back, the restaurant seemed to be in a bit of turmoil so not sure what was... More

Having recently moved into the area we anticipated having to endure a few rough meals before finding an Indian we liked. How wrong we were! We decided to give Masa a go last night as it is only round the corner from us and because the trip adviser reviews indicated it should be ok. When phoning to place my order... More

After a referb , you would expect opening night to be the best it can be! Not in this case . Service was appalling, no one was eating anything other than poppadoms and an hour later we were still waiting for our starter. When we asked to leave we discovered they had not even put through our order ! Exit... More

I've not had an Indian meal outside of Upminster/Gidea Park for a long long time. I went along with my in-laws who had recommended it and I was not disappointed. I had the duck special which was delicious (although one observation it could have been hotter) and I tasted the chicken naga which was top drawer!! The service was excellent... More

We like to come here as a couple and each time we love it. The food and service is great here - pick any of the meals and you will not be disappointed. If you want a quiet meal, ask to be sat upstairs - as soon as stay downstairs on a Saturday night, it can get uncomfortably loud with... More

The food is nice and there are so meals that I've not seen anywhere else . But it is a bit pricy for what you get. Nice enough though
