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.

I am an Indian food lover and this place is the best in cairo. Service is excellent and the place is cozy and clean. Portions are smaller than before but still fine. Prices are not too high. Make sure to get a discount if your going to the roof for drinks or shisha

After hearing so much good about this restaurant we were quite looking forward to our meal. The ambience was so so, the airconditioning was busted, the service was nothing to write about and above all the food was average. We were very disappointed and would definitely revisit this restaurant.

After reading the so many great reviews, I decided to try the place. I must say there is much ado about nothing. I did not like the place neither in terms of food quality nor settings. Service was OK. It is not a place that I would plan to go again in the future. There are definitely other places in... More

The food was excellent and served in a timely fashion, the portions were filling and packed a flavorful punch. Hospitality is off the charts as well. I highly advise trying the signature soup as well as the delicious assortment of breads.

In the last trip to cairo I went to try the so very famous "massala" at "The Karvin Hotel" in cairo. To my surprise it was just me and a egytian group of 7-8 youngsters on an easter day in the restaurant when rest of the cairo was flooded with people... Well it was already my 9th day in cairo...

The food is just amazing. I really liked the variety the menu offers. Although the place is a bit small and not very fancy, but I went there to enjoy real indian food and I did. I just loved the whole experience and I'll defenitly be back soon.
