Description: Savour the new wave of contemporary Indian cuisine over a glass of wine...
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

In my opinion, Masala Bay is one of Mumbai's finest Indian food restaurants. Located inside the Taj Lands End hotel at Band Stand, Mumbai, Masala Bay offers some excellent Indian food, beverages and most importantly impeccable service, which makes it an ideal choice for special occasions.

One of the best restaurants of its kind - excellent food, excellent service and nothing at all to fault. We kept going back to this restaurant during our stay, because it was so good. Truly memorable, for all the right reasons.

Good hearty Indian food! My experience has been that typically the Mumbai restaurants don't stand up their Delhi counterparts when it comes to Awadhi/Frontier etc type of food. But the food at Masala Bay broke that myth for me.

A quiet time to indulge in your favorite food and a good appetite is all you require to be part of this place. Right from the start the taste buds are stimulated either by the lemon flavored prawn or the Kolkata Bhetki. The freshly made fulkas add a nice homely touch to the cuisine.
