“Best in Derby”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

There are loads of Indian style restaurants in Derby but I ALWAYS go to Masala. The food has got more flavour and freshness than most other places and the atmosphere and staff are first class. Even the music is excellent. I feel their 2 for 1 weekdays are going to be popular whilst they last.

We go there as big groups from work and they always offer is a good set meal price and are really efficient with our large numbers. If you haven't been since the new management started then give it a try, you'll become a regular like me :)
