Good food

The food was good, and so was the service, way better then it used to be few years back. Not sure if it is really authentic Indian food, but it taste very different and very good.

I have visited several times and always have a wonder experience with great staff and impeccable food. Never leave disappointed, and options to satisfy even the less adventurous eater.

This is the first place I ever had Indian food,and I am forever spoiled. Everything I've had here is amazing, but the chicken keema is my favorite. Can't go wrong with garlic naan, samosas, and their house salad dressing is addictive. Service always good & attentive.

I drive an hour and a half to get here, and it is so very worth it. I always know what I'm going to order: samosas, butter nan, and chicken tikka masala. The food is consistently and spectacularly delicious, the service is excellent, and the ambiance is peaceful. The sauce that the chicken tikka masala comes in is so rich,... More

I am a seasoned long term visitor..so much so that I should have a seat named after me here..and a dish too :). I have brought several of my friends here who are willing to or would dare to try some Indian Cuisine in this part of the world. It can be a little overwhelming if this is your first... More

If you are visiting Layfayette and are tired of Cajun food and all things deep fried, this is the place for you. We had the Chicken Tika and lamb roganjosh and both were excellent! Medium spiced is the way to go for both dishes. Service was great, prices are reasonable (especially compared to a big city) and the atmosphere is... More

We drive 2 and 1/2 hours just to eat here. Excellent everytime. We travel for work all over the US and this is the best Indian food ever. We highly recommend it.

My co-worker and I have a standing date every week for "Masala Monday" - their lunch special is the butter chicken that day. It is probably my favorite dish in all of Lafayette. They have a "thali" for lunch daily - it's sort of like an Indian bento box - includes a cup of soup, side salad, samosas, naan, dipping... More

Now we aren't particularly knowledgeable about what constitutes great Indian food, but my husband and I love this restaurant. We've had Indian friends think highly of the food, so should be authentic. The pakoras app is so yummy; really haven't had a dish we didn't like. Desserts are ridiculously good.

I always enjoy my experience with Masala. Sometimes the spice level is not consistent. I have had the Indian hot where I was burning on the inside, and the hot where i have not tasted it at all. But overeall am always always always always beyond pleased with my food and my service.
