“dont expect good Indian food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Even though this place is supposed to be Indian fusion, it is no way close to true Indian food. The food is very bland. Buffet is just ok for the price. If you are looking for good Indian food this is definitely not the place to be in.

“A hidden gem in Woodbridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

If you are a fan of Indian food, you have to put Masala Magic on your list. The name is fitting because there must be magicians preparing food in the kitchen. It's a simple, but very room dining room in Potomac Festival Shopping Center across Smoketown Road from Potomac Mills (same shopping center as Golden Tech and Hard Times Cafe. The seasoning is perfect, the temperature of the food is perfect, and if you prefer more spice and heat, they are happy to oblige your request. The lunchtime service is buffet; so, try everything!

“Standrad Indian Buffet --- Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2011

This was a more-or-less standard Indian luncheon buffet place. The food was so-so --- the butter chicken had too much of a Campbell’s tomato soup flavor; the tandor chicken was pretty good. Service fine --- water was refilled, nan was brought to the table, and the people were friendly. Ambiance was fine --- table cloths and silverware, clean surroundings, but terrible (fusion?) music. The value of this experience was fair.

“Wonderful Food and Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2010

It's nice to be able to go to a non-chain restaurant in this area and enjoy great food. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We had the vegetable samosas, lamb curry and the lamb chops. All perfectly cooked and delicious.

“Eat Here Today”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2010

This is a great restaurant. The combination of the quality of food and service combined with variety of cuisines of Indian, Nepali and South-Asian Cuisine make it a wonderful dining experience. The Magic Assorted Platter for apps is great and the entree are varietal without being confusing. Everything tasted great. Can't wait to go back.

Did I say that the service was great, too?
