True Authentic Indian taste

We visited this restaurant after good review on net. We were not disappointed. Taste was good, true authentic Indian. Looking at rush, it seems to be very popular. Food serving was amazingly fast. Staff was courteous but seems little under-staffed. To one of my Chinese friend, they brought the... read more

As an Indian I am embarrassed! At first glance this restaurant is promising and inviting with its clean decor but that's the only good thing about it. The service was TERRIBLE - our server was rude and had way too much attitude for his own good. The food was clearly precooked but the effort to heat it up was also... More

I went here due to a friends recommendation and I'm glad I did. It reminded me of authentic Indian food some friends of mine cooked for me long time ago. The butter chicken with naan bread is a must try, also their curries are outstanding. The samosas were simply great! Wish I had had more room to try more things.... More

Restaurant is clean and nicely decorated . I ordered chicken curry and it was delicious. I saw other plates going to other tables and they looked really good. A nice option for Indian food in Shanghai.

me and my friends travelled for 2 hours across the city trying to find this restaurant, we were so happy when we finally found it! We had been craving Indian food ever since we landed in Shanghai. We were quickly seated, and we ordered drinks. We ordered poppadoms, various naan breads and chicken tikka masala with rice. Portions were huge,... More

I used to prefer a different restaurant, but lately, I think this place has taken the number one spot for me. Been here three or four times in the past few months, the first time, we were blown away by the amazing service! The on the latest occasion though I am sad to say that the waiter barely even looked... More

Masala Art restaurant on Dagu Lu is really amazing. The staff are very helpful and they get overwhelmed with the inflow of customers, this is the only reason I am rating them average. Being Vegetarian in Shanghai is a biggest challenge and this restaurant is a blessing.

Most Authentic Indian taste, and great interior. If you are really hungry than try for Jodha Akbar Thali. Great collection of godd wines.
