Upon walking in we experienced the most calming and relaxing ambiance. The decor is beautiful and the soft calming music was great. Now... More

I strongly recommend the Dhal Puri as a starter ..the mix of Lentils, Taramind and yoghurt will set your taste buds ablaze. The Undiyho veg curry was delightful a combination of green banana, potato, lentils etc served with... More

Being in London, we wanted to enjoy a good Indian curry and the Masala Zone was the most nearby. But good it was! Certainly recommendable.

Lovely quiet place with relaxing music. The food was delicious and presented well. Try the Quail and the lamb chops or duck. The service was attentive but not overbearing. A patron told us that this is a chain in London and we had no idea. Most chain food is like stouffers. If you have never had Stouffers. it is a... More

This is a nice Indian restaurant in Islington High Street. It is very good value, the Thalis are very tasty and are a good choice if you are new to Indian food. There is a big choice on your tray and its not overly spicy even if you choose a dish that is marked as hot. The service was excellent and... More
