Delicious, well prepared meal!

The Chicken Tikka Masala, samosas and pakora are my favorite! One of the best places in town to eat.

It is an OK restaurant. It is a buffet and it is really spacious. Indian cuisine is not my favorite cuisine but it is good to try different cuisines from time to time . I personally recommend their dessert

I'm a Berea College student from Bangladesh and Masala is my heaven for food because it is the closest to home that I can get in Madison County. The restaurant is welcoming and spacious. They have lunch buffet for $8.99, which is a very good deal. They have a really diverse menu apart from the buffet, and I personally like... More

I firmly believe that Masala is the best food within 50 miles. Eating here introduces you to an entirely new cuisine that is top notch. Their buffet is a great deal, but the variety they have in their menu is really amazing as well. Always hot and delicious, Don't come to Richmond without experiencing Masala.

I've only had this as catering, but it was so amazing. This was my first time having Indian food and I would have this again and again. I honestly keep recommending it.

Had lunch here with my friends, and the food was good. The buffet was just what I needed. The service was great, and I am definitely eating here again.

My first taste of Indian cuisine and Masala did not disappoint. I had the buffet to sample as much as I could and found myself loving every bite. A fantastic first experience and great atmosphere. Best way to eat at an upscale restaurant for less than $11.

If you're craving Indian and too lazy to go to Lexington, or not used to REALLY GOOD Indian, then it's ok. I'd rather take the drive and get something beter though.

I feel like I'm back in the Middle East, where real Indian food is common. The buffet is decent, with a good variety of Indian cuisine that will please anyone who is open to trying something new.

Masala never fails to serve extraordinary platers. Every time I make a visit, I order something different from their diverse menu. This time around, I ordered the Pasanda, a platter filled with tender lamb and a rich, creamy and spicy sauce that just goes well with a side order of naan. I definitely recommend visiting this restaurant if you want... More
