“6 Stars if I Could!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I've been going to Mirch Masala for years, and today I had the best Indian lunch buffet ever! Today being a Sunday, there was Lamb Rogan Josh on offer, as well as their delectable spinach (saag paneer), Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoori Chicken, Curry Chicken, Zucchini Curry (which was a first for me, and absolutely mouthwatering), and their superb Navaratna Korma (vegetables in a korma sauce). They also had their usual rice and Dal Makhani (black kidney beans with tomato and onion) and other accompaniments. You're offered their naan bread which is great for scooping (or soaking) up the creamy and scrumptuous sauces. Their desserts were tasty and varied, and I lapped up their mango custard, kheer (rice pudding with almonds) and carrot dessert (gajar halva). Salads abound as do vegetarian dishes. Lunch buffet daily at $8.95 and Thursday night at $14.95. Full menu evenings. Visit their website for more information.

“Best Indian cuisine in Colorado”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

Definitely put this one on your list of restaurants to hit in cs. I used to eat at this place years ago when it was a Chinese restaurant. Interior is much different now but the food is outstanding.

“A Favorite Spot for Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

I frequent Mirch Masala. I love their lunch buffet. They have a great selection. The food is consistently good, and the service is great. The staff is very nice. My husband and I occasionally eat dinner here. You do order from the menu for dinner (no buffet). We've never been disappointed.

“Great Food, Quirky Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Time and time again, Mirch Masala serves up incredibly savory, tasty food. The rice is aromatic and fluffy, the naan is to-die-for, and I have yet to try a dish here I do not like.

On the downside, the service is slow and quirky. For instance, it may take forever to have your order taken...then it seems drinks, salads, and entree arrive suddenly all together! On the one hand, your dirty salad plate sits for minutes on end...then the waiter arrives and tries to take your entree plate out from under your mouth!

I love the food here and the promise of delightful dishes will keep me coming back. But I really wish Mirch Masala could get their service quality in line with their food quality.

“Very authentic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Our Nepali friends introduced us to this very authentic Indian food. Not fancy but good. The lunch buffet is very good but pretty basic. Better to order off the menu.
