Went here for the first time last night and can't wait to go back.

The service was great, the food was great. Lamb as it should be, melt in the mouth.

It was my first visit there wiithmy wife at mamas after a recommendation from a friend, it was a very busy saturday night and we got greeted and seated straight away. The staff where very friendly the decor was beautiful and the food was amazing. We ate from the set menu which was very reasonable in price n the choices where vast, portions where huge and presentation excellent. Although the restaurant was busy we never felt rushed always made to feel comfortable by the staff. Felt really relaxed in there the atmosphere was great, good crowd. Without doubt the best restaurant I've been to overall in derby. Bonus features you can have a nice banter with the waiters and waitresses.

We were staying in the local Travelodge visiting friends for a few days so we decided to check out the local Tastecard restaurants. Mamas Masala was close by so we booked a table. We found the standard and quality of food to be very high, the prices were reasonable even without the Tastecard and the lamb dish was delicious. We would definitely visit again and recommend without hesitation however, we did happen to choose the evening when England were playing and still in with a chance so we were the only ones in the restaurant but the take-out section was very busy. The portions were quite large and we couldn't finish all the meal so they put the remainder in take-out dishes - it was much too good to leave on the table!

This was not our first visit. As we have loved it before, we returned to eat here again. Last time we ate here the quality of the food made up for what we felt were smaller portions. At our return visit the lamb was amazing and definitely to be recommended, but the chicken dish contained two small pieces of bone and a large bit of gristle.
