Lovely atmosphere and staff as well as availability of delicious vegan options!! What a delicious Aloo Tikki! Came back few times during our stay. Only disappointment was the polystyrene food container that we received with our take away order. Plastic bags could also be substituted with paper ones!

Aloha... having experienced this delightful boutique restaurant before its takeover and now owned by Riaz Mir, I am heartily enthralled. He's kept the charm and enhanced the floor table space intelligently. The food is an absolute treat on the palette and senses considering the fact that he's from Kashmir and a gift to Cape Town bringing a greater authenticity of... More

Been coming here for years and have always loved it. Love the food and hospitality! The aloo bombs are out of this world! Recently I left my laptop there which was very distressing! The next morning Riyaz contacted me to say he had safely stored it away. Thank you Riyaz.

We were told about Masala Dosa by friends of ours who live in CT, particularly about the vegan options. We weren't disappointed at all. Great food in a quaint little restaurant. Loved it.

Do NOT go here. Please be aware this establishment is not the same as the review in Trip Advisor. When a restaurant changes ownership this is NOT reflected in the reviews. Anyone would think reading the reviews that this was a great little place. It was fantastic tastic! It is now quite shocking! The review done a few days ago... More

We're sorry you feel the way you do, but this is very unfair. Firstly, the restaurant changed hands 3 months ago, so we deserve all the good reviews we've received since then, most of which disagree with all your judgements. Secondly, the menu is the same, the ingredients are the same, and the kitchen staff who prepare the food are... More

Really delicious rotis- had the vegetable one and it was really nice. My boyfriend loved his too! Nice staff, quiet atmosphere and the food is relatively quick. A nice restaurant in general. Portions are quite small so make sure you order a lassi too!

This place should be called Masala Delicious! From it's location in vibey Long Street to its funky Indian decor, to its totally delicious and AUTHENTIC Indian food, it nourishes taste buds, body and soul. Then there's the lovely Riyaz who welcomes guests with his easy manner and quiet charm. Don't miss the Aloo Bombs, the Ma-Salad, the glorious mango lassi... More
