“OK for dinner but poor lunch buffet.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Went few times for dinner there and enjoyed their meals. Today I tried their lunch buffet for 110 CZK and was very disappointed. The selection consisted only from 3 meat options and 2 poor vegetarian choices: lentil dahl and boring potatoes in a sauce. Both were overly salty, lacking quality. Best part of the buffet was bread and rice. I can only say: "Go to Indian Jewel if you prefer nice Indian dinner in pretty atmosphere or check out Beas for cheap veggie buffet."

“Nice Indian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

I have tried with a friend the restaurant Masala and it was a real pleasure to eat there. Situated in Prague 2, close to Folimanka, the restaurant is in a lovely blue building.

The food and presentation were nice and tasty. I really recommend this restaurant. Main course seems to be small at the beginning but finally combining it with some nans it was the perfect size.

“Could be good, but suffers from poor service - also they serve food almost cold”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The restaurant started well - when we went around the time it opened a few years back it seemed really good. More recently though, we've had one or two fairly awful visits, with one hour waits for starters (! how?), burnt bread and small portions of half-cold food. It was a bit bizarre on one occasion, as the owner was sitting in the corner of the room throughout and did nothing at all about the fact that he could see that we, and some other tables, were waiting an incredible time to be served, though the restaurant was pretty quiet. Has he lost interest?

It's a shame. The experience would instantly improve if they would just, for goodness sake, warm the plates and serve the food HOT - on-table plate warmers, seen in almost every UK Indian restaurant would be a nice touch.
