This is a pretty good Indian restaurant. The service was very good. We had the meal for two, and it could have been the meal for four. We brought food home. The curry chicken was especially good.

Try to go here pretty often. The buffet rotates different things daily - if the eggplant is there you won the lottery. The dinner is great, my entire family loves it. We've been loyal customers for years.

We are so fortunate to have a restaurant of this quality in Richmond. It is our favorite, hands down. The food is delicious and the service is friendly. We often order take out and we are able to have dinner in the evening and lunch the next day due to their very generous portions. My favorite is the veggie thali,... More

Masala has been here for a few years in a building that was once a convenience store. I've always found the curb appeal to be bland and uninviting but had heard many good things about them from friends and, most most recently, my vegetarian daughter. So today I gave them a try and left with a better understanding of their... More

I can’t say enough good things about Masala. The lunch buffet is amazing and a terrific bargain. Evening meals are equally delicious. The waitstaff is gracious and I always feel welcome.

I really like coming here for lunch. The menu changes daily, so there is always something different to compliment the standard offerings. Fresh, hot food and friendly, solicitous staff. I wish they had a buffet at dinner too, as I think part of the fun of eating here is trying a little bit of everything. Glad to have this good... More

Good service and fair prices. Our family of eight all had the buffet. It cost $50 at lunchtime. The food was good but a lot of it had been on the buffet line too long. Had it been fresher they would have received five stars.

This is a local favorite! At dinner, great entrees include the classic Chicken Tikka Masala or Chicken Saag to the little more adventurous Lamb Rogan Josh or Coconut Chicken. Anything you get here will be delicious! If you're new to Indian food, I recommend coming at lunch so you can try the variety at the buffet to decide what you... More

I had never had Indian food before I came here the other day, and I loved it! They had a few different types of chicken on their buffet (major plus that it was a buffet), as well as rice and other good eats. The garlic chicken was the best in my opinion, but there was a round, sweet dessert that... More
