Good food

Lunch time. Wonderful selection of flavorful, colorful foods. My favorite was the masala chicken and curry chicken, Tandoori chicken was also good. Thought the nan needs a lot of work. Menu changes by days of the week. I'll be back.

We were looking for something interesting for lunch on the way to Louisville and found this restaurant. The lunch buffet had a nice variety for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Would definitely go back if we pass this way again.

My niece was graduating from Berea, and we took her and a friend out. She picked this restaurant because she loves the food and they serve alcohol unlike the places in Berea. The niece especially likes the lunch buffet, but dinner was equally good. We started with both types of samosas and Indian beer. A meal in itself! Then two... More

Lunch buffet is the best, a good deal. This is my favorite Indian place. I've seen better atmosphere at more expensive places but this place is still pretty nice, is clean, and has great service, and lots of well seasoned flavorful food. Every time I go I wish I had a larger stomach so I could eat more, haha. Masala... More

After walking out of the inexplicably highly-ranked Thai Smile without ordering (it was thoroughly unappealing -- "Our dishwasher is broken, so we serve our meals on plastic plates", etc. etc.), we cast about for an alternative. Not knowing the Richmond area at all, we decided to give TripAdvisor a second chance, and this time, we were amply rewarded at Masala... More

We like lunch at Masala. They have buffet and you can choose what ever you like it. I love thin crispy bread, hot spicy food, and some desert.

It's friendly, delicious, and affordably fancy. I love the garlic naan with some lamb masala or lamb vindaloo. My other favorite dish is pollock panir. So tasty. One of the best date-places in the entire county. Alcoholic drinks are good and strong, but a bit pricy. Wonderful place!!

Our family favorite in Richmond. Buffet for lunch is tasty, diverse, and is the way to go. Dinner is fabulous but a whole lot more expensive than lunch. Our favorites- chicken tikka masala, saag paneer.... have never had anything we didn't like here.

I was seated upon entering by a waiter and drink order taken he was informative about what to try in the buffet line. They did a wonderful job with the chicken curry ,jasmine rice, and that potato dish... More

My husband and I visit this restaurant frequently. We have never received anything other than delicious food. The servers are always nice and knowledgable if you have any questions. The lunch buffet is an excellent and wallet-friendly way to try out the Indian food. The buffet changes daily but always has a dish called chicken tikka masala which I have... More
