Butter Chicken had no taste, a really poor spice blend, the bright colour appeared artificial. In fairness we had recently had a fantastic Indian Restaurant experience in Palm Cove, where the spice blending and flavours were excellent and much more natural looking. We were surprised at the colour of this dish as we eat at various Indian Resturants a lot. Overall it was an ok meal, venue a little tired looking but clean, a good crowd and fast service. An hour after the meal we both felt sick and were up all night, whilst it may not be directly related, we will not order butter chicken again for a very long time!

I love Indian food and this place is my favourite place for take-away or dine in Indian food. The portion sizes for take-away are bigger than if you dine in but both are excellent value. The service is friendly and fast and they have two locations, one in the city and one at Cannon Park. I would, and have recommended this restaurant to anyone looking for delicious food and value for money.

Excellent and reliable Indian at a reasonable price. Their takeaway portions are quite large and make for a great lazy dinner night.

We were in town for the night and staying nearby. Wanting something easy we ordered takeaway. I was surprised at the value for takeaways and the range offered. We ordered a chicken tikka masala & aloo gobi with some naan bread. I was informed that rice was complimentary for take away. Bonus. As a general rule I have found most Indian meals to be overpriced and usually fail to deliver however the guys at Masala were friendly, quick and the food was great.
