So a few things about this place and a background. I’ve travelled to over 40 countries tried and have had Indian food In almost each country I’ve been to. I’ve tried many style and flavors of Indian food and I’m addicted to it. Came here...to fill up on my craving and here is the take away. Their chicken Biryani was good and flavorful and the sauce for it was off the hook. Their potato stuff bread and regular naan were excellent as well. The tikka masala was just ok. The chicken malai and other skewered chicken app was delicious and moist. The chicken samosas however were the driest thing I have ever had in a samosa in my entire life and they tasted like they were made ages ago, the mint and mango chutney was not on point only the tamarind chutney was good. The total bill came out to about $135 for the three of us. When we were all full we asked for a few boxes to take the leftovers home and they charged us for each box for us to take their food home in….. weird but not the weirdest past. Here’s where it gets even more disappointing, at the end of the meal we had two Coca Cola bottles that were 3/4 or more full so as we always do we took them for the road. Turns out the waitress never returned my credit card at the end so I had to go back the next day to get it and when I called to make sure they had my card the waitress had the audacity to ask me if I had taken the two Coca Cola bottles with me, I said I did and then she told me to come back and return them!!!! Can you believe that? After spending $135 on their food they asked me to return two empty coke bottles! Luckily when I called we were at a sushi place down the street and the owner laughed so hard when he heard the conversation on speaker phone he went and got me two empty coke bottles for free and told me I could take them for free since the refund on them in like 30 cents each. Very disappointing to end like this but I have never had anyone ask me to bring empty bottles back especially after spending so much money at their restaurant!! Overall the food was ok but not stellar, but the service isn’t good enough for me to come back for. You need to stop nickel and diming people for every little thing like to go boxes, and your plain white rice and don’t ask people for bottles, it’s not a good look for a restaurant.More

We came at 5 for an early dinner because we had small children and a large party. We were the only ones there for at least the first hour and half. They asked how the bill would be split and we told them upfront. We...then ordered appetizers but soon realized it was taking a while so we tried to put our entree orders in. We were told to wait till apps came out. The kids were getting restless and we again tried to order entrees with no luck. Finally apps came out and we were able to order. After a long while we got entrees and started asking for checks. We had now been there for 3 hours. We were then told it had to be one check and we said no - we were asked at the beginning and pointed out each family group or we would not have stayed to eat. 50 mins later with much frustration and no consideration for the tired kids we tried to feed early, we finally left feeling frustrated, disappointed, and like we wasted our time. This was our 4th trip to Coata Rica and our 4th and FINAL time at Masala!More

Really nice place, with clean outdoor seating. The food was some of the best Indian food we’ve had in a long time, and sizable portions. Highly recommend.

Masala Indian Restaurant is a culinary gem! The butter chicken here is an absolute delight, bursting with flavor and perfectly cooked. From the moment I stepped in, I was greeted warmly and treated to exceptional service. The ambiance is cozy, enhancing the dining experience. Each...bite of the butter chicken was a journey of taste sensations. A definite must-visit for anyone craving authentic Indian cuisine!More
