Don't understand all the bad reviews?? We are foodies & we love food & this is probable the best indian food we have ever eatin so much so we only eat Indian here. Its not cheap & I will agree its usually under staffed but the kitchen is always got it bang on. This place is one of our favorites & worth a try.

The food was well prepared but the tablecloth , glasses and silverware had spots.
There was that old Canadian custom of charging extra for rice on a dish where it is traditionally included.

My Husband enjoys bufffets so I convinced him to eat at Masala with me, however the buffet consisted of 3 hot dishes and 3 cold dishes. We were a little dissapointed in the selection but the food was good. The Buffet was $11.99 each, one of the dishes was a buffalo curry which was very good.

Entire experience was disrupted by an Indian tour group who was also dining at the restaurant. It was truly chaotic. We were ignored at the front door by several employees and it took over 5 minutes for someone to acknowledge us. One harried waitress finally cleaned a table for us and we ordered drinks, 2 of which came back wrong. Ordered appetizers, 1 of 2 was wrong. Friend ordered salmon, but was told kitchen was out of salmon. Once we got our food, it was very good but the experience was pretty tarnished.

Based on this experience, I wouldn't go back.

ps - we made a reservation online but they didn't know anything about it...

we visited Banff last Sunday and found out this east Indian restaurant..i did not like this place as the food was not up to the mark,,we got piece of hair in vegetarian biryani not once but twice,at the first place i did not report as i thought it must have been from some other source, but when i saw the piece of hair the second time,,i was really surprised and also angry,,and when we reported this to the receptionist she said talk to your server and the server did not come to us for 10 minutes ,and after she arrived we were really very pissed off and when the server told the owner he was staring at us inspite of apologizing,,i would not recommend this place to anybody.
