We have found this a wonderful place to meet friends or family - the food is really good and well priced - the venue is quiet, easy to have discussions even in larger groups, and there lots of easy parking around

Loved our experience there. They have Bollywood movies playing on screens around the restaurant. Staff friendly and professional. We went for a great $10 lunch with friends and enjoyed it so went back the following week by ourselves. Great meals for a great price.

There are so many Indian restaurants in Takapuna and I have tried them all, I would say that Masala would be the best for atmosphere, service and flavour. My friends and I often go here and we are slightly different because quite a few of us have food allergys and they are always happy to cater for us.

We go to Masala only during the weekdays from Monday to Wednesday for dinner. This is when they have the $10 mains . Food is okay - the quality of their naan can be quite variable. If you dine here at other times during dinner, you might find the food a bit pricey.

We visited Masala as we just happened to be passing after work. Staff outside trying to get you in should have rang bells! We had a $10 main meal (Mon - Wed) but although have been there before this was their 2nd chance to improve things but sadly they did not. We had a starter and main. The starter was... More
