Real Indian cuisine from amazing Indian family

Love the doctor that owns this place! He is always there saying hello and making sure that everyone gets taken care of! My favorite dish is the buttered chicken and you have to add a side of garlic naan to sock up all the extra gravy! It's the only authentic Indian game in town! You won't be... read more

The food is very hot and spicy but even I know that this food is still very good. It really is and it's fun to go to a different place as this and have a fun and enjoyable experience with my fiancé(who is Persian so she loves spicy foods) it was a little hot but that's my own fault for... More

My family and I absolutely love the food and atmosphere at Masala! Walk inside, and you are immediately transported by the incredible sights, sounds and smells of India! It's a complete feast for the senses. The food is absolutely delicious, and we love it all, from the nanne (spelling of the bread?) to the chicken tikka masala to the vegetable... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Lafayette. We usually go at lunch for the daily special. The atmosphere is relaxing, the service is wonderful and ohhhhhhh... the food! Whoever is in the kitchen really knows how to layer and build flavors. Ordinary vegetables become transformed when simmered with spices or fried into crispy bites. Pull apart the pillowy Naan, dip...

This place has a really authentic Indian feel and serves really good Indian food. We ordered several dishes to share on both starter and main course and everyone was good. I would say this is a decently priced place well worth a visit. The waiter was helpful even giving me his glasses to read the menu. Unlike some Indians, the... More

White tablecloths, soft lighting. You would think the prices would be higher. But the food is VERY well done and affordable. You can choose the level of heat in your food. Anything with korma sauce is wow good! They really know how to do this food!

The food was delicious, but a little bit overpriced. I had the Chicken Curry and it hit the spot. I did take out, so I don't feel like I can give the restaurant a 5 because I did not have the full experience.

I was curious about trying this restaurant. Knowing nothing about Indian food, I asked my waiter for assistance. Thankfully, he seemed more than willing to help me. Recommending the special that came with all kinds of goodies! It was the best lunch! I also treated myself to dessert and coffee. I will definitely go back!

Always good & consistent! We dine here often. Usually stick to the same items, samosas to start, Butter Chicken and Mali Kofta (sp?) with paneer naan!!!

Although this wasn't my first time at Masala, I am writing this review because of a recent great experience. Our waiter, Alex, was very attentive and offered many suggestions. Was he right...every one of his suggestions was a hit. I'm thinking this place just doesn't have a bad dish! Will be back again soon. Anything off of the "specialties" section... More
