We loved this place. The food was fantastic and to find almost everything was gluten free was a treat for me. The choices were outstanding. The dessert was amazing. We had excellent service and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Tamborine Mountain.

Loved the service and the food was very tasty. We nearly missed out as it was pretty fully booked tonight. Definitely worth checking out.

My girlfriend and I had dinner here and were very impressed, what a beautiful spot to dine. A wonderful choice of authentic Indian food at a reasonable price. The meals tasted amazing and the service was really good. Would definitely recommend this place and I will be sure to return to try other things of the menu.

Masala Shanti is on the main gallery walk as you drive into Tamborine Mountain. It is an excellent restaurant to take friends to experience something a little different. Meals are great and the atmosphere is a genuine Indian feeling with menu to match. Not cheap but not outrageously priced either. Good experience, good service and really good food.

We had a lovely shared meal of Butter Chicken, Rogan Josh and Saagwalla with prawns, two naan breads, rice and pappadams. All were served at the same time and were fresh and tasty. Service was very good and friendly. Wish we lived on the mountain as we would go there often. Will definitely return.

We had a really nice dinner here. Many locals in-the-know arrived with their own bottles of wine. The restaurant charges $3 corkage, which seems like a great arrangement to me. We had a few curries, chutney, raita, rice, naan. All was well prepared and served. No chapati on the menu, but not a big deal. A few different varieties on... More

Masala Shanti is as good as our favourite Indian Restaurant in London......and as Indian food is the national dish of The United Kingdom...that's saying a lot! Freshly prepared spices make the difference. The food is prepared and served with family care, that make it really special. I can only say that we are very fortunate to have this place in... More
