Had only one meal here but would have liked to have returned. It took quite some time for my food to come, but when it did, it was freshly cooked & delicious.

Halal restaurants are a rarity in this part of the world. This one even had really tasty curries although the naans were a bit doughy. You have to be early as it gets very crowded the 2 nights we were there. Highly recommended

If you are looking for a change, Masala is a wonderful restaurant that serves excellent Indian cuisine at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed our meal very much.

We've been to Banff 4 times within the last 5 years. We discovered this little gem in 2010...if memory serves...not long after it first opened. We were last in Banff in 2012, and visited again. Upon completion of our last visit, I had the chef out the front. Why? Because I informed him that not only was his food the best Indian cuisine we'd ever tasted, but perhaps the tastiest restaurant meal we'd ever had. We're going back at xmas next year, 2014, and will be seeking this restaurant out...most definitely. Trust me, if you like tasty Indian cuisine - this is the best. And despite what others say, the price is very reasonable indeed.

Coming from the UK we needed a curry fix. The Masala meal was very good. I had bison saag which was an interesting twist on the usual dish and my husband had the lamb karai which was excellent. The onion naan was particularly good. The service was attentive but low key. A very pleasant evening after a long drive.
