“Hot and Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Came in on a night that was wet and cold, ask for a table and was given one straight away. We only stay there for a hour because we had taken somebodies table that was booked. Was so impressed with the service we got. Order taken and dinner was on our table within 15mins.

“Disappointed with the naan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I went to this restaurant for a special occasion and was disappointed that half the naan bread was crunchy. The other half was perfect and the curry was delicious but the naan bread makes the meal for me. Great parking availability and friendly staff although they did not check that all was ok with my meal otherwise I would have told them about the naan at the time. They will not replace the soft drink with anything else. I would not go to this restaurant again.

“Lunch deal at Masala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I defy you to find better value for lunch in Auckland than the $10 lunch deal at Masala. For ten NZ dollars you get to sit in a modern, comfortable dining room with attentive waiting staff, and enjoy a curry, rice, naan bread and a poppadum with a glass of soft drink. There were various upgrade options; from memory add $4 for house wine or beer, $2 (maybe $3) for coffee and there was at least one other option. We had the Masala special chicken curry and lamb saagwala. I asked for medium to hot and it was just right spice-wise. I have done this twice and will again; will also take the family for dinner as there is a kids butter chicken option, as well as fish bites and chips for my fussier son who doesn't 'do' Indian. My 'excellent' rating is based on outstanding value for money (no idea how they make a profit on this) but even at a higher price point it would be fantastic value.

“Good location in Central parts of Auckland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

It is a beautiful property with good parking nearby. The Indian food was excellent. Especially their Seekh Kababs and Chicken Tikkas. They offer three levels of spiciness:mild, medium or hot. We go for mild. They also have Indian lager.
Good place for family and friends. Kids enjoy too.
The staff is cheerful and friendly..service can be faster tough, particularly on weekends.
Booking a table on weekends is advised.
