I wonder if the lunch buffet strategy is to make it 85 degrees in the restaurant to give you the true "India in the summer" feel. Even the fine places in India have Air Conditioning. I think maybe it's part of their strategy to make...More

I've been eating at this gem for about 15 years and they have never let me down. Lunch buffet has a good variety of tasty Indian dishes for about $10, including fresh Naan. Pleasant, attentive staff. Lots of underground parking.

To begin, the only reason Masala doesn't receive 5 stars is that it's below a fitness center, and if the place is uncrowded, you can hear weights dropping on the floor above your table. This isn't the restaurant's fault, of course, but it can be...More

We tried the food on the menu. But I think the buffet was (surprisingly) cheaper. The Coconut Curry was the best I've ever tasted. Halal but sells alcohol.

My wife's traveled to India several times, and, well, I just like Indian food. This place is pretty good. We spent a substantial part of the meal trying to figure out what the space had been used for before they moved in - a sports...More

While I had never visited Masala at its previous location, I decided to give the newly re-opened restaurant a chance, enticed by inviting decor and positive reviews. Unfortunately while the redesign was Restaurant Impossible-worthy, the food and service were subpar. Even with a nearly empty...More

I've averaged our two visits together for this review. The first meal was above average, but the last was a complete failure. The service was horrendous, and the food wasn't much better. I can't even remember what we ordered because all I can think of...More
