“Best Indian food in Egypt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I visited this restaurant on the day we landed in Cairo. We were two couples on our honeymoon and were personally greeted by Mr. Oberoi, the restaurant owner. He was very welcoming and told us our lunch menu. Four curries, naan, yoghurt, daal tadka as well as dessert. All the sabsiz were absolutely delicious, especially the fried bhindi and aloo sabzi. It was made to perfection.

We visited another Indian restaurant the next day and bitterly regretted our decision.

For all the Indian food lovers in Cairo or visiting Cairo, this restaurant is a must visit.

“Still the best Indian meal in Cairo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Was there again last Saturday and the standard of cuisine remains the same 1st class.
The variety of the starters and the quality of the main course are excellent. There are other good Indian restaurants in Cairo, but I still think this is the best.

“Best Indian Cuisine in Cairo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is truly a hidden gem found off the main streets but still quite central in the Heliopolis area. Tucked away in the back of the Karvin Hotel, this restaurants has a lot to offer.. beautifully done indian food including mouth-watering starters and vegetarian dishes as well as tandouri and biryani dishes.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

It is difficult to find a real good indian food restaurant in Egypt. Massala is the best by far. I go there at least once a month. Portions are good, price is very reasonable as well.
