What a wonderful find. It was recommended by our hotel and what a unique place. I can see why it was featured on tv. Unique place with great food. So nice to try something different. I went with what the showed feature and totally happy. My husband had the burger and that was great. I understand they have opened another... More

We stop here every time we are in Dryden. The buffet is great. there is a mix of indian staples (butter chicken, korma etc) and some boring stuff (chicken fingers, fries) for the less adventurous. we are super luck to have a place like this local.

I go here any time I want to celebrate. I always enjoy the food, and the friendly service. I have never had a bad experience here.

A MUST visit if staying for dinner in Dryden. Somehow the owner/chef has managed to combine Indian,Thai, Greek and North American under one roof. He has gone and studied at other restaurants to learn authenticity in his menus. Hand made spring rolls are awesome. Filo pastry is perfect. The restaurant itself is impeccably clean which usually translates to the kitchen... More

Excellent East Indian Food, if you are if you are from Great Britain, then this Curry is for you. The servers are very attentive, and friendly. Look near the cashier for imported candies... ;)

This is a mediocre authentic East Indian restaurant that is located in NW Ontario. The buffet is ok but nothing like you would get in Winnipeg or Toronto. The owners are very friendly but they have their daughters waiting tables and you can tell they hate it and are inexperienced. Generic food without choice of spice...home made for the most... More

Looking for a great East Indian and Greek menu? Look no further than Dryden's Masala Restaurant! The menu is varied with these two options of different country styles, very hard to choose! And then to complicate it even more there is a lunch buffet, great on it's own, and then there is an evening buffet with multiple choices of delectable... More

If you're from Northern Ontario you probably get sick of the exact same burger and fry family restaurants which is why Masala's is such a breath of fresh air. The buffet is always amazing but if you want a bit more authentic spice you can order the dishes individually and feel your taste buds explode.

I'm in Dryden for business, and I often feel like when I'm away for the week in rural MB or ON that I don't consume one vegetable. Naturally I was excited when I saw there was an Indian restaurant in town! Very impressive, not only is the food fantastic, but the family that runs the place is so lovely. They... More

The service is always excellent when we go here. The menu has so many choices and the food is delicious. I almost always get a chicken burger and fries and gravy from here, because it is by the far the best in town, but i have also enjoyed samosas, the lobster ravioli, naan bread and fish and chips from there....
