“Take away YUM!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

I've been trying to find a decent Indian restaurant or take away that delivers close to Derby city centre and last night I decided to give Masala a go. So glad I did as it was one of the best Indian curries I have EVER had!! I had a chicken madras with peshwari naan.... Both delicious! The madras was so good, great consistency with fresh herbs, I want another now!!

“First Rate”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

A friend and I ate there last Sunday evening, our first time at Masala. We had first class service and first class food. I has the chicken tikka Naga, a Bangladeshi dish which was wonderfully spicy and cooked to prefection. In fact every part of our meals was just excellent. Portion sizes were generous and I felt that prices were reasonable. We both said this was one of the best Indian meals we had ever had. Hope to eat there again next time we are in Derby.
