Looking for a great East Indian and Greek menu? Look no further than Dryden's Masala Restaurant! The menu is varied with these two options of different country styles, very hard to choose! And then to complicate it even more there is a lunch buffet, great on it's own, and then there is an evening buffet with multiple choices of delectable... More

If you're from Northern Ontario you probably get sick of the exact same burger and fry family restaurants which is why Masala's is such a breath of fresh air. The buffet is always amazing but if you want a bit more authentic spice you can order the dishes individually and feel your taste buds explode.

I'm in Dryden for business, and I often feel like when I'm away for the week in rural MB or ON that I don't consume one vegetable. Naturally I was excited when I saw there was an Indian restaurant in town! Very impressive, not only is the food fantastic, but the family that runs the place is so lovely. They... More

The service is always excellent when we go here. The menu has so many choices and the food is delicious. I almost always get a chicken burger and fries and gravy from here, because it is by the far the best in town, but i have also enjoyed samosas, the lobster ravioli, naan bread and fish and chips from there....

The owners of Masala make you feel at home, the selection of food and the service are second to none . Masala has a very diverse menu that includes Canadian, Asian and Greek food, all are prepared with excellent presentation as well as taste, portions are very large, and the price is very affordable.

We gave a 3 star because of the 3 small pieces of our 20 dollar British Style Fish and Chips. It was tasty, hot and fresh, but nothing at all like we would picture for 20 bucks. It was a small portion of fish to us, I could see the disappointed look on the faces when this dinner came out.... More

I don't visit this restaurant as often as I would like. But, as usual service was excellent and friendly and the food was delicious. What more could we ask for.?

Masala is concsidered, by many, as the best East Indian restaurant between Toronto and Vancouver. Owner and Chef Sarj is Indian by way of the UK. Everything is prepared on the premises and Sarj goes to great length to ensure you enjoy your meal. The buffet is always the East Indian food. For those not into East Indian food traditional...
