Brilliant food in a lovely restaurant. The staff couldn't do enough to make the visit great. I love the fact they even stopped me ordering too much. Loved it.

We loved everything here except the Tandoor chicken. The Chicken Tikka Masala was superb, the raita, nan, eggplant, and everything else was delightful. But the staight-ahead Tandoori chicken had a funny flavor, like they forgot a spice or two, or put in way too much of something. It was just not right. We took a couple bites, and left the... More

Twice we ordered take out appetizers from Masala, and were pleased both times. The Onion Bhajia is served with a unusual tamarind sauce and an excellent mint chutney. The Shrimp Pakora uses surprisingly large shrimp and is accompanied by the same sauces. Their Mango Chutney is thick and sweet; the Raita was very flavourful, though of a rather thin consistency;...

Sizzling hot fresh prepared food. The place was decorated with colourful lights soothing music with nice ambiance!! Lamb Bhuna ghost was the one which was one of a new variety in their menu which we ordered and we were not disaapointed. The staff was too friendly and helped in ordering too

This restaurant was recommended by a woman who worked at the canoe rental. There was quite a long wait - even at 8:00 pm a night - but was well worth it. They made a rice & peas dish (off menu) for my daughter. There were also good choices that I had not seen before at other Indian restaurants. I... More

What an excellent find in Banff! Delicious Indian food coupled with great service, made our dinner experience memorable. There were 16 of us in the group & the food was made to order (medium spicy) & attention to detail was extraordinary. Definitely exceeded expectations!

Using my scale that rates a restaurant on food quality, food quantity (I'm an outdoorsy person so quantity counts!), and price, Masala is top notch. My wife and I dined around 7:30 PM. Poppadum and tamarind sauce was served while we looked over the menu. We had shrimp pakora as an appetizer; 6 healthy sized shrimp served with delectable spicy... More

Good North Indian food. They have vegan options here too. I like spicy food but some dishes were too spicy for even me. Nice decor, staff was nice.
