After reading your recommendations and reviews my wife and I decided to try something different to celebrate my birthday, so we went to Massala and The Karvin Hotel. The whole experience was a disaster. The ambience was awful, however we decided to take a chance expecting to be served great food. After waiting for over 1 hour we were served... More

I had a very good time, dinning with my friends at the massala. It was my first time eating at the hotel and the restaurant and I was very impressed at the waiter, Mohamed's knowledge of the menu and the food. We must have asked him about 20 questions about the menu and he answered all of them really well.... More

Massala was indeed one of the very few Indian restaurants in cairo serving good quality-authentic food. nevertheless, this could have been said perhaps two years ago and not today. Today, the quality of the food, the service and the general cleanliness of the place have significantly diminished. Today in Massala the dishes are almost indistinguishable from one another, it stopped... More

After reading so many good reviews about this restaurant on tripadvisor , my husband and I decided to give it a try. first of all it wasn't suitable for my little infant as smoking is allowed and there is no place for non smokers . As for the food it was below expectations and below average ; actually my husband's... More

A horrible restaurant. First of all , if you have children don't even try, space is mixed ( for smokers and nonsmokers) and alcohol is allowed. After the tens of reviews, which recommend and glorify this restaurant, I decided to visit it with my wife. The reception was chilly; the waiter was too busy to welcome us. We decided to... More

One of the best restaurants in cairo. Delicious mouthwatering. The spicy food makes your eyes watering. The worst thing is the Internet connection is not free u must pay for it.

Being an Indian food lover since over two decades now, I can easily testify that this is by far the most consistent place to eat Indian food. While the overall look of the restaurant might not be the ideal one for a trendy outing, the service and quality of food and dedication of the owners make it a perfect and... More

I love Indian food. I was looking for a restaurant in Heliopolis and I have found Massala on tripadvisor so I decided to give it a try. I have tried the restaurant, it is not a big restaurant, the setup could accommodate a group. The service was good & speed (given that we were the only table), the food was... More

Whenever we are in the area, we enjoy eating at Massala because the food is always good. My husband and I have enjoyed quiet meals as the only people in the restaurant. And, we've also hosted large group parties. No matter then number of people, the service is good and the food is great quality. The owner is very welcoming.... More
