Making it a point to try Indian food in every place I go to, I can say without a doubt Raj and his cooks make the best curries I’ve ever eaten. I have never eaten a bad meal here . Try it all. I recommend...the Kashmiri spicy with a garlic naan bread .More

Only average for me had the lamb and it was overcooked. Severice was fine but it's not that spicy. Free parking and an outdoor option.

Appetizers (samosa, naan, etc.) were tasty. Paneer in the sauce was tough (old?) and chicken was dried out. If we had been in the restaurant, I would have sent it back. Disappointed.

I had the chicken makhani and the chicken tika masala. Both were excellent. The spices were perfect. I also had the garlic butter Naan and lemonade. Service was very good and the staff is super friendly. Give this restaurant a try if you are in...the area. You won't be disappointed.More

Great food and great service. We were driving home from the outer banks and took 301 instead of 95 and saw this restaurant on google maps right off the road. We got chicken tikka masala and garlic naan and it was fantastic. And in La...Plata!More

A friend of mine has wanted me to go to this restaurant and I kept saying no. She finally got me there yesterday after we went to the Charles restaurant for drinks. Wow am I upset. I’m leaving town in two weeks and this is...the best restaurant I’ve eaten at probably in 100 mile radius. I was scared to try it for some reason thinking I wouldn’t like it. Going back today to get more food. Drinks were twice as good as the ones we had at previous place. Try their mango margarita. We started out with the cauliflower appetizer which was so delicious. Then my friend got a chicken dish and I got a shrimp dish and we got some of the delicious bread they serve. A huge order of fluffy rice came with the food and we had way more than we needed and took some home. The staff was extremely friendly kept coming over to the table talking to us. This is one well-kept secret please give it a try even if you don’t think you’ll like it and I think you’ll agree it’s the best restaurant around. La Plata Has needed a good restaurant for years.More

The lunch buffet at Bollywood Masala offers an excellent selection of perfectly prepared Indian favorites, made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Labels for each dish help educate diners to vocabulary as well as components. The okra was cooked to softness without losing its texture or being...drowned in tomato. The potatoes wore lightly seasoned, crisp coats over their inner fluffiness. The spinach sag hosted a generous sampling of goat cheese. The chicken tandoori and chicken masala were tender and distinctive. The chai caressed the mouth with a subtle creaminess enhancing the spices. General Indian décor provides the main theme of the dining room, accented with Bollywood movie posters. We look forward to going again.More

I love their lunchtime buffet and enjoying trying the different Indian dishes that I am certainly not going to make at home. Their regular menu is also good food.

i don't know which was more memorable - the fantastic food or the impeccable service! the owner visited us several times during our visit, initially guiding us through our food and drink selections since we were first-timers to the restaurant, and most in our party...had never even eaten Indian cuisine. they thus did their utmost to ensure everyone's dishes were carefully selected/customized in accordance with the diner's tastes. beyond that, though, we were just made to feel very welcomed by all the staff - kudos to all for an unforgettable dining experience!More

Pasty, cheap food. It's just not good. Service is slow and indifferent. For what you get, expensive. Go across the parking lot to Spoons for a great meal.

We are regulars at Bollywood Masala. If you can get beyond the name, and relatively off the beaten track location, you'll be delighted by the service, flavors, and price. This gem serves up all the Indian standards, vegetarian and meat options, coupled with genuine, attentive...service. We have tried the lunch buffet, and ala carte option for dinner, and both are delightful. We're particularly pleased to find curried goat on the buffet yesterday, which is worth the trip alone.More
