Generally one has a pre-conception of 5 star food to be bland and not tasteful... But Chef Amninder Sandhu (Best chef award winner) made sure we get mouthwatering dishes. Not to miss the option of half portion of vegetables/ curries served in here...I loved the food and was extremely happy with the service and attention. Customer service at its best!!!

The spices in the food to the taste is excellent and the ice in the cocktails is also as good and complements the service.

Nice Meal, but they managed to mess up the billing. This was rectified immediately when I got my statement and called them. Otherwise, good service.

Customer's delight! That's the word that can describe this place in brief. A cousin visiting from US was staying at Taj so we decided to have dinner there at Masala bay. Like any other 5 star hotel restaurants, I had expected this place to be too classy for me to keep a check on my dining etiquette and have this... More

We ate lunch at Masala Bay. It was a wonderful experience, both from the culinary and service point of view. We shared various dishes (starters and main courses) all of which were packed with wonderful flavour and exquisitely cooked. The ambience and service add to make eating here a wonderful and very worthwhile experience to be recommended!

It is costly, but worth to try traditional foods here. Based on their standard good spices are used in the food preparation.

WE were dubious about the food when we went but must say the food was excellent. I particularly liked the biriyani

Having attended many business conferences at the Hotel and enjoyed the food, decided to visit the restaurant along with friends. Apart from the lighting that could be a little brighter, the rest of the experience was good with tasty food and drinks to go with. Most dishes actually retained the taste of the ingredients which is not always the case... More

Savour the new wave of contemporary Indian cuisine over a glass of wine. Blending aromatic Indian spices with modern cooking techniques, Masala Bay produces flavours that add a new dimension to the experience of dining. With a selection of traditional Indian favourites cooked in minimal oil and with just the right blend of spices, the restaurant shows that light and flavourful are not culinary opposites. The extensive cuisine spread features traditional Indian food with an accent on seafood from coastal regions of India.Masala Bay features an interactive theatre kitchen, a separate bar area and three private dining rooms. A harmonious composition of forms varying in texture, material and colour, the interiors of the restaurant are enhanced by the pleasing use of light and contrast that creates a sense of intimacy in the open, large space. Warm silver tones and occasional flashes of colour along with polished granite floors, lend a clean and contemporary look. The dramatic decor is the perfect setting for the progressive cuisine. Complement your meal with a selection from the The Lounge Bar. You can choose from spirits from around the world including a variety of over 500 different wines, ranging from New World vintages to all time favourite like French Bordeaux.Cuisine: Indian Location: Lobby Level 1 Hours: Lunch from 12:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m., Dinner from 7:30 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. Reservations: Recommended Attire: Smart Casual
