I went there to have lunch in a weekday without many expectations, but I got really surprised. The place is great and the waiter was nice and polite. I ordered a vegetarian option of the table d'hote (entrée, main dish and dessert). It was around $10 and the food was delicious!

Best food I have ever tasted. I could not stop eating (that is an issue) : it was heavenly. Reasonable, excellent service and staff was very helpful! Quiet and not noisy (which i like) Wonderful neighborhood delight!

My husband and me got a hint for the Masala Palace from a friend. Otherwise we would never have noticed this place in the basement which lookes a bit shady from the outside and actually from the inside as well (it's not really a restaurant to feel cozy). We ordered the AA combo as takeaway and were blasted from the... More

We ordered three courses, although we asked for medium hot, but all were mild. That is an issue with Indian restaurants, that is hot at one place is called mild at another. Anyway, for this place if you are looking for a kick you need to ask for hot and spicy. Service was good.

Not a very enticing place to enter, as it's in a basement, and passingby's have never revealed any crowds down there, but my Mom visiting this last week gave us an opportunity to visit and finally try. Waiter first off was kind of off-putish... not the most friendly ( at least at the beginning) and after trying to engage him... More

Beware of their lunch scam! First off, the food is actually very good- naan is excellent. But if you go during lunch time, be careful: the menu says rice or naan. We said we'd like naan, and assumed the implication was that we didn't want rice. They brought our food with rice on the plate, we didn't say anything, thinking... More

English version to follow / Très bon restaurant indien qui ne paye pas de mine à première vue. Mais la nourriture est fine et les plats sont tous savoureux. Le service est diligent et la note légère : un repas complet (entrée + plat + dessert) à 19 $ par personne, c'est cadeau. English version : That's really a place... More

We went there in the middle of the week and frankly the food was not fresh, the oignon bahgi were overcooked, tasted like leftovers as did the mostly potatoes samosas.. Not a great start, and the lamb korma and butter chicken were in the same sauce except for the color... The good side was the amazing nan bread. I have... More

My wife and I dropped in last week for dinner around 5:30 pm. The restaurant was empty but the owner and waiter were very happy to see us. The restaurant has been updated since our last visit (about 5 years ago). The ambience is quite bright and airy for a restaurant in the lower level of a building with direct... More
