“Indian cousin meeting Egyptian taste”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile



The restaurant is located in the heart of the elite Heliopolis, it was a bit tricky to arrive there, as name of the street was not recognize by maps. However, directions was aided by local population and finally arrived. Passing throu a wee corridor to access the modest restaurant, our reservation was honored, on the middle of an L shaped narrow hall, decorated by pictures of Indian ladies in their native dresses. Furniture matches the expected food.

We ordered tandoori chicken for starter, three different masala, garlic nan and lamb . Tandoori arrived well don and it was near perfect, my only comment it was presented on cold plate. Rest of the food arrived we ordered four masala, jhinga , murgh tikka, and bhuna gosht, all the first three were chocked in the same sauce and in my personal opinion were difficult to distinguish between the three, prawn was over cooked and rubbery. However, for most non Indian cosine lovers its ok. For me I found it a bit amateur.

Service is good and the manager mr cavai obroy greeted us during the meal which added a nice assuring feeling.

In conclusion the experience for visitor is new and should be pleasant for first Indian taster.

“Fab food”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We ate at the masala last week, after reading reviews on trip addvisor, Gail had rogan josh,and I had biriani, both meals had so many tastes and flavours, superb authentic indian food, a side order of madras sauce added to the pleasure, I've tried madras in many places, and can honestly say this one would be in my top 3 ,the staff are friendly and the manager a smashing chatty man, all adding up to a great nights dining for us.

“Indian food better than it is in India.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

For those of you that are familiar with the providers of Indian food,it is suffient to say that the owner of the restaurant is Mr. Oberoi. For those of you not familiar, check out the name Oberoi (re. Indian food).

“Tasty authentic indian”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Authentic indian food, served in nice portions. Restaurant is inside Carven hotel. The restaurant itself is nothing fancy, but the food is authentically prepared (hotel owners are from India)

The food can be served on the roof top which is open air, a much nicer option for casual dining.
