This local restaurant is on our regular rotation and we are always pleased. I could make a meal from the naan alone! There have been many changes to the interior decor over the last year or so that has greatly improved the atmosphere IMO. But really, if the food is excellent, who pays attention to the atmosphere?! Even my 'meat... More

Nowhere else can we get these flavors, but it is also quality indian food. We love how they make suggestions for the children and answer hot/mild questions. We always order more food than we can possibly eat because it all is so good!

This is better-than-average indian cuisine. I lived in India and usually have complaints about many Indian restaurants, but this one has the stamp of approval. It's authentic, tasty food.

I'm here at our only Indian restaurant once a month. I usually order the same 4 things now for years. So please don't expect a comprehensive analysis of the whole menu. What I order is consistently well made and very flavorful. Staff are always friendly. It's not 5 star amazing gourmet but it's better than what I can do! The... More

Rich flavors, generous portions - we had some very good advice from the owner (who took our order) about what dishes to try and what sizes for the group of 7 we had. The naan was really fresh and all the dishes were awesome!

Wife and I went for an early dinner last Friday. We started off next door in the lounge and enjoyed a draft beer while talking with the owner, Sonny. After the draft (nice selection by the way), we sat down for dinner. We started with Naan bread (garlic & cilantro) and then went straight to the entrees. Wife had a... More

Dropped in on a rainy afternoon for a snack but stayed for dinner. The welcome by the owner Mona, the decor and warmth was the deciding factor. The chicken tandoori, Kashmiri naan and hot masala chai was totally delicious. The servings were so generous that we had plenty to take home! Need to bring the whole family soon

This is my favorite cuisine and I've learned over the years that not all Indian restaurants are good. Bollywood Masala has never failed to serve me a delicious and satisfying meal. I've had the buffet - excellent! I've ordered from the menu - excellent! Raj and Mona (the owners) take a personal interest in the quality and authenticity of the... More

indian food is meant to be eaten with balance; a little spicy, a little sweet, a little dry, a little sauce, some vegetables, some protein. The cook has always come out for us and helped us find the balance. The food is delicious and makes for a wonderful lunch the next day.

The best Indian food I have ever put in my mouth; a delicious array of choices. Don't let the exterior or dark interior dissuade you. The food is fabulous!
