We call it Al's place. The flavors and ingredients are fantastic. Had cauflower curry tonight and the beef vindaloo all on peppered rice. Don't miss this great experience.

It's amazing - the owners are so friendly, and can help you decide what to order if you've never tried Indian before! The curries change every week, so there's always something new to try! It's a wonderful, family-owned business with authentic Indian food. The food is amazing - try the Mango Lassis! I eat here every single time I visit... More

This restaurant made our vacation. Being vegan our options are usually quite limited while on vacation. We found Curry Masala via the app Happy Cow and we could not be more impressed. The owners are fantastic! So polite and we had such wonderful conversation. They took a lot of time going over what our food options were and answered our... More

This place is ok. I read through the negative reviews and the positive reviews, and honestly I see both sides. I end up in here every few months if I'm craving Indian food. It does the trick. The staff is super nice which is a huge plus! The prices are affordable. Seriously, you can get a meal for under $5.00... More

I always enjoy the food I get at Curry Masala, at either location. The one drawback is the line and inefficient food delivery process. You stand in a cafeteria style line and each person, one at a time, selects food, is served food and rung up. If you are fifth in the line, it can take 15-20 minutes or more... More

There is a second location at St. Joseph Street, where we stopped by for lunch. Its not a restaurant we would choose without doubts, but open-minded we entered to give it a try. Its clearly an ambience at a low level. Simple furniture, food served on paper plates and in foam bowls, plastic flatware. However, the waiter explained every item... More

This is a good place for cheap and tasty Indian food. They serve combinations of about six or eight different meat and vegetable curries with your choice of basmati rice or flat bread. The server behind the counter was friendly. The place is clean. If you're staying a month in Rapid City, once a month, they offer Indian cooking classes.... More

I had the meatballs and rice with tandoori chicken, this is served cafeteria style. The worker was very knowledgable of the food. Way cheep, you should try.

I've been a regular here for years on end. It's just GOOD. I always get whatever meat entree there is on hand, I've never tried the veggie stuff. The combo #2 with spicy beef and (insert whatever meat he's got for the day) is to die for. I've YET to be disappointed. If I can't figure out where to go... More

These are nice people but really very bad food. Any veggies....look twice, they are all out of can, nothing is produce fresh. Really kills any chance of those dishes being good on any minimal level. The food overall is bland and runny. And the "bread"....out of a package, not made there. Really very disappointing. Will never go here again. But,... More
