Always good & consistent! We dine here often. Usually stick to the same items, samosas to start, Butter Chicken and Mali Kofta (sp?) with paneer naan!!!

Although this wasn't my first time at Masala, I am writing this review because of a recent great experience. Our waiter, Alex, was very attentive and offered many suggestions. Was he right...every one of his suggestions was a hit. I'm thinking this place just doesn't have a bad dish! Will be back again soon. Anything off of the "specialties" section... More

After two years of pondering it, my husband and I finally tried Masala. I must say we were delighted from the moment we entered the restaurant. The ambiance is soft and inviting with low lighting, tapestries, and a gentle aroma of spice and incense that gets the senses prepped for a unique dining experience. Having little familiarity with Indian cuisine,... More

Being a person of Indian origin, I am constantly disappointed at what gets passed on as Indian food in the US. Most Indian restaurants dilute the cuisine to such an extent that it becomes barely recognizable as a version of the original. To get a fix for authentic Indian food, I some times go to lesser known places in dingy... More

This was my first visit to Masala. I go to Lafayette on business occasionally and have driven by it before. Indian food is one of my favorites, so I thought I's check it out. Décor and atmosphere were very nice. I was welcomed upon arrival and the service by the waitress was fine. Whenever it's a first time visit to... More

We're not Indian by ethnicity, so this place was fine. The veggie samosas were smaller than we were used to, but everything tasted good. I'd eat here again.

Seriously tho. It's pretty good Indian food. Try the lamb Rogun Josh it's my go to. Only small complaint is they always have the food to mild for a serious curry fan. Even when I insist on the hottest it comes to mild for my taste. But I'm weird...

Masala has always been unexpected since restaurants in this area of the country tend to fall into a very limited range of cuisines. The food is generally good but the heat level is pretty high (even their mild is fairly hot relative to most Indian restaurants). They offer a fair number of vegetarian options (also quite rare in this area).... More

I have visited several times and always have a wonder experience with great staff and impeccable food. Never leave disappointed, and options to satisfy even the less adventurous eater.

This is the first place I ever had Indian food,and I am forever spoiled. Everything I've had here is amazing, but the chicken keema is my favorite. Can't go wrong with garlic naan, samosas, and their house salad dressing is addictive. Service always good & attentive.
