I found it hard to find good places to eat in this area: most of the restaurant cater for tourists, serve food that's not from the region, and are quite expensive for India. Masala fort was better than the other ones around : it's a pleasant place to eat, with a nice atmosphere, and good local non-vegetarian food. If you... More

I got some lunch to go from here and we really liked it. It was simple traditional food, but it was tasty. The portions aren't very large, but it worked for us. The fish curry was tasty!

Beautiful location but that is about it. The food was average and the portions were absolutely tiny for the price you pay.

We ate here this evening and although I had some good things to say, the evening concluded in utter disaster. :'( We arrived and the restaurant was busy... A main reason we decided to dine here, plus the menu board outside offered what we were looking for. The waitress (and owner) greeted us and we had a short wait while... More

I liked the relaxed ambiance of Masala Fort. I could not find many options of vegetarian here. So, I have ordered the standard choice, a biryani, roti and paneer butter masala. I wasn't expecting a great taste, but surprisingly the food tasted great. Especially the Paneer Butter Masala. One point less for the long waiting.

Started with prawns in tempura. Delicious! I had Kohzi Chicken curry. Could have been a bit more spice hot but good bit of chicken and well cooked. Mikki had fish in banana leaf which was hotter and very good. Staff were attentive in a modern way,. Non of this awful fawning and hanging around watching you eat. Good eclectic music.

I have eaten here several times, it is always excellent! Nice place, upstairs looking out over the street. Food/drinks and service wonderful. Relaxing atmosphere, especially with the street view. A great spot to have a good meal and watch Fort life pass by at its distinctly leisurely pace. I would highly recommend this place!

We were lucky to get in and get a table as they were very busy. Food was great. Would love to return when less crowded and enjoy our meal a little bit more peacefully.
