GREAT CURRY , LOVED IT

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.

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.
