I enjoyed the food, the service was good, the place is not very fancy, the prices are ok. I would sure go again for lunch or dinner.

I have had nothing but problems from this hotel since living in their hotel a few months ago. Last night I ordered delivery from Masala and made it clear not spicy and when my food arrived 90 min later the delivery man was very rude to me and basically wanted a 50 LE tip which I refused and he called...

But massala was much better the food was amazing full of spices and the service was quick and very polite staff.they need only to try to improve the atmosphere and improve the mango/yougurt mix. Prices were above average but... More

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
