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

My husband is a meat and potatoes man and doesn't like many foods, probably because he doesn't try. Anyway, my daughter and I try different foods and we LOVE Masala. There is such a variety of foods that are always fresh and plentiful. Their naan is the best I've had. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Masala’s is my all-time FAVORITE place to eat in Richmond! The food is bursting with flavor and is about as authentic as you’re gonna get! The restaurant makes their food and their naan in house and is run by a local family who is actually from South Asia. The inside is beautifully decorated with a gorgeous painting of an elephant...

I'm not an Indian food fan, but I'd always do a meal at Masala. Their buffet is great, they have a great variety of food. I love their Mango Lassi and Chicken Curry. Everything is great, service is fast, the waiters very polite. Fresh spices and big portions. Good prices too. Definitely recommending Masala.

Great Indian food, with fresh spices. There big portions are great, and their buffet lunch allows you to try a variety of different foods at a decent price.

A group of 19 people and I had lunch at Masala, and it was a buffet so we were well fed. The food was really good and I thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. We had an Indian native in our group and he attested to the quality and authenticity of the food we had.

I had lunch at Masala with my summer institute classmates and it was amazing. They have a buffet for lunch and the food is so good it is hard to describe in words, you have to experience it yourself. I was astounded by the variety of chicken they had but my all-time favorite is chicken curry. Their naan is also... More

I was with a group of twenty of which most of them had never eaten Indian cuisine before. They all fell in love with the place, and enjoyed being able to eat new high quality foods. Even the restaurant allowed us to have a formal meeting after eating. Just a warning to you that the bathrooms don't lock, so someone... More
