Don’t go here if you are expecting traditional Indian food and especially if you are on a budget. The rice is over cooked and sticky, and my butter chicken curry came out with FOUR PIECES of chicken!! The curry was way too thick and sweet....More

We ordered set lunch. The gravy was bit bitter but the quantity is sufficient. You can also top up in set lunch (2 gravies, rice/nan, sweet and drink). Taste of food was average. Lassi was good.

The food is below average, watery curries, too short on ingredients and the service is far from hospitable. Absolutely not worth the time, better to dine Italian. If you really want good Indian food, check out Potohar in Shinjuku (just a couple of train stops...More

I ordered the butter chicken with plain naan and rice, and 2 glasses of coke. The rice was very overcooked and the butter chicken was just ok. In my opinion it was a bit flat and too sweet. I had better for the same price...More

The naan was good and the place seemed clean. Prices were reasonable . We got the palak paneer and the prawn curry and they were not good. There were 4 measly, rubbery prawn in the curry, and the palak paneer only had 4 small pieces...More

Addresses in Japan are notoriously hard to find and the Masala Hut is a positive exception. Go to Harajuku station, take the Takeshita Dori exit, cross the zebra, turn left and after one minute you're there (next door is the "It is always cookie time"...More

I have been to Tokyo twice now and on each occasion I made a trip to this restaurant. The second time we went was a year later and the server recognised us, which was really impressive! Location-wise, Masala Hut is a minute's walk away from...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
