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.

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

lovely decor, great location, courteous staff and most importantly delicious food. enjoyed it all.. beginning with the beautiful lobby to the complimentary paan at the end. tandoori salmon, lamp chops, kathal biryani were all good. crabs were a bit disappointing, doused in onion-tomato masala we had to fish for the crab meat.

During my visit at this great hotel in Bandra, I had my evening dinner at this inhouse restaurant. The overpriced food was of a poor quality and the service was marginal. In comparance to the high quality hotel and even to the other fine restaurants at the hotel, was this a dissapointing experience.

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.

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.
