5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

I enjoyed my first visit here about 2 years ago. Never forgot the place. Came back this time and food is still exceptional. I started off with the potato samosas. They were really good and piping hot when they arrived. The crust was crispy/flaky and the inside was moist. For my main course I ordered the chicken Korma, Indian hot... More

Masala may be a little dark inside but the food is excellent, the bar concocts imaginative cocktails and the menu is interesting (with many vegetarian choices). Highly recommended. Good lunch specials.

This is my favorite restaurant. I drive from an hour away to eat here. Not only is the food authentic, flavorful, and fresh, but the service and atmosphere are outstanding ! They always make our experience a favorite family memory.

We went last night for our anniversary while in town. My husband loved the cheese appetizer, but I didn't care for it. I ordered the Chicken Korma and it was pretty good, but pricey at $15.50 for the amount of food given. Our waitress ignored us most of the time and was not helpful at all even when we let... More

Make sure you order some bread it was great.. The butter chicken was really good. I also loved the lamb ossso bucco. Everything we ordered was very good those were the... More

My wife and I love trying new food, particularly new cultural foods. On a friend's suggestion, I surprised her with a trip to Masala and we were blown away by, well pretty much everything. A man (I'm assuming the owner) came over to check on us while we were looking at the menu and offered his assistance. He went over... More

Very good and authentic indian food. The service was friendly but on the slow side. The have also forgotten to bring our bread. For knowing the price range of lafayette very well, this is for lafayette standard a rather expensive place but worth going. Also the Indian selection of beer is interesting.
