This is the place to go in Dryden if you want really good East Indian Cuisine. The host/owner is super friendly and will do what he can to make your experience unforgettable.

We were very pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a place in such a tiny town. It was a dinner buffet with exceptional variety for meat eaters. Being a vegan, I was just a bit disappointed by only 3 choices available for me, including...More

This is a welcome addition to the foods available in Northern Ontario and I think they’re going to expand to kenora next year! I would be very excited to see that happen. All dishes were made well and good spices.

Ordered “to go” on this occasion. Warmly greeted and led to a nice table to review menu. Complimentary spring rolls appeared. The friendliness was palpable. Totally committed to customer satisfaction. Food is excellent with strong quality ingredients. Worth a visit

Not much to say. I ate lunch here once. Small town Indian buffet. No naan. Great service and good prices. Good place to eat if you choose carefully. I had indigestion after. Good location.

Enjoyed dinner at Masala. The staff are very attentive to their customers. Nice change from the same old options we typically get in a restaurant. In my opinion, the Indian flavours are very good.

My hubby and I stopped in for lunch. We both had the buffet, nice and fresh selection. The hostess explained dishes and suggested items for us to try. The dips and hot pickles were tasty and added extra zing to the already delicious dishes. Will...More
