Not as good as usual

Visited last week and was disappointed. We always go for family meals so was surprised to see that they do not have their round table, which seated six people, and was great for easy conversation. The service was slow, as always. The food was ok by Masa standards, although their food is always... read more

We popped in on Friday after finishing our shopping as we could smell the tantalizing smells across the road, we had no booking and could not have been made more welcome. We let the chef chose the specials for us and it was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and food was delightful we will be back !

We went here on Tuesday to try out the £14.95 bring your own wine special. I had only been here once before when the restaurant first opened. I had found it very expensive. This time the price was right so we gave it another go. The service was first class. The food was wonderful. They couldn't have tried harder to... More

We visited Masa for the first time last night and had a lovely time. We were offered a choice of tables which was nice. The food was excellent and the prices were very good. A bottle of house wine was only 13.95 and a pint of Cobra 3.50. The waiters were very attentive without being obtrusive. Would definitely recommend.

Went here last Monday night and immediately thought why have I waited so long to go back. Food was impeccable as always and don't think it can be compared to other Indians like Mughal Dynasty as the food is so different and beautifully presented. Portions were just right and a fantastic choice. We tried some chef's specials which were delcious.... More

Been twice in recent months with some cricket pals. I am a big curry fan and although not as good as the Mughal Dynasty IMO, I was impressed by this restaurant. They have excellent selection of dishes and not the normal stuff only. Great array of specials cooked well and all the standards done nicely too. Would recommend the chicken... More

Been here a couple of times. Service is always slow and be careful when ordering the specials as they tend to be served cold. The curries however do get served at a reasonable temperature. Have tried take - away too which was OK. Not the best Indian around

Had four trips to this restaurant now and every time the food has been excellent, it's not your usual Indian, the food is of a higher quality than other Indians in the area, going there tonight, hope it's as good as I remember !
