Description: Savour the new wave of contemporary Indian cuisine over a glass of wine. Blending aromatic Indian spices with modern cooking techniques, Masala Bay produces flavours that add a new dimension to the experience of dining. With a selection of traditional Indian favourites cooked in minimal oil and with just the right blend of spices, the restaurant shows that light and flavourful are not culinary opposites. The extensive cuisine spread features traditional Indian food with an accent on seafood from coastal regions of India.Masala Bay features an interactive theatre kitchen, a separate bar area and three private dining rooms. A harmonious composition of forms varying in texture, material and colour, the interiors of the restaurant are enhanced by the pleasing use of light and contrast that creates a sense of intimacy in the open, large space. Warm silver tones and occasional flashes of colour along with polished granite floors, lend a clean and contemporary look. The dramatic decor is the perfect setting for the progressive cuisine. Complement your meal with a selection from the The Lounge Bar. You can choose from spirits from around the world including a variety of over 500 different wines, ranging from New World vintages to all time favourite like French Bordeaux.Cuisine: Indian Location: Lobby Level 1 Hours: Lunch from 12:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m., Dinner from 7:30 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. Reservations: Recommended Attire: Smart Casual

Masala Bay offers one of the best Indian Food. Its a FOODY's Delight. Some of the dishes make you remember your home food if you have Dal and Sabzi with Fulkas. Spices used are just right. The staff is well trained and always make you feel at home. I love visiting this restaurents as often as I may.

The food was just ok and ambience is not that great. There was a problem of electricity and a peculiar smell was coming in the eating area

Very impressed by this restaurant last night - we went in and asked for fish curry and they produced something really subtle, balanced and well-flavoured. Also very good aubergine dish. Attentive service.

This restaurant in the Taj Lands End hotel serves Indian cuisine at its best. European diners will welcome the help from the staff with navigating the menu and adjusting the spicing to taste.

This is not traditional Indian food, but instead an inventive spin on Indian cuisine (from casual street food to more formal meals). Everything is either reversed (pav bhaji with tiny tiny bread rolls or vada with bread INSIDE) or has a spin on it like paan flavored cotton candy or tres leches rasamalai. I usually steer clear of fusion or... More
