Amazing Food...Bad service

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.

If you are in Shanghai and looking to eat Indian food, this place is good choice. Abt 5 min drive from Nanjin Road or people square. Or 20 min walk. We order Tomato soup, Channa masala, and daal Makhni with butter naan. For drinks we had Mango and banana lassi. Everything was tasty. Also clean place, was busy on Saturday... More

Travelling is a part of my job and I can't live too long without Indian food. So, wherever I travel I make sure to locate and visit an Indian Restaurant. We found this place in Shanghai and I must say, they just made us forget that we were outside India. Food was so authentic. Will strongly recommend this place.

This is one of my go to restaurants as it's near my apartment and I love Indian food. Staff is very friendly but can be overwhelmed if it is crowded. Butter chicken, garlic naan, lamb and spinach, lots of good stuff. Vegetarian options are also flavorful and filling.

We were looking for Indian food and this place turned out to be the best option after checking around. The prices are not too exorbitant as we experienced in other places. The quality of the food was great. Service was very quick.
