Great food and atmosphere with helpful and knowledgable staff. Not your average suburban Indian, but a more adventurous and exotic selection along with the usual fare. We regularly travel up to Mt Tamborine from the Gold Coast for their great food and service.

Had the best experience here. Exceptional customer service matched with equally exceptional food - a treat to the senses. Atmosphere is warm and great menu options including a generous vegetarian menu. If you're looking for great food at a relatively decent price then you need to put this on your To Do list while in/near Mnt Tamborine.

Having lived in Kenya with its large Indian population , we were spoiled for choice when it came to Indian cuisine. Having since moved to Australia, we have eaten at a number of Indian restaurants and Masala Shanti is clearly in a league of its own. Great authentic Indian food, friendly service, good value. I can highly recommend this wonderful... More
