“Authentic indian food”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

Went there with indian friends, not expecting much because of other negaive posts on tripadvisor. However, we were positively surprised by the quailty of the food. The service was friendly, the price ok for Swiss standards.

My Indian friends enjoyed it and found it much better than at Kanchi where they had eaten the night before.

“Absolutely Pathetic”
Reviewed 14 February 2011

We were in Luzern and decided to go to this place. Its a shame on the name of Indian food. The lady at the counter had an attitude as though she was the queen of some kingdom and looked at us as though we were some lowly people.
The food was nowhere near normal standards in terms of quality. I do not know what leaf they used as coriander and the chappati's we ordered, were Pathetic.
A total disappointment in all.

“Un-indian, unethical and expensive”
Reviewed 26 May 2009

I wouldnt recommend anybody to Masala. We (me and my wife, both indian) went there for a buffet. The buffet costs 42 CHF. And guess what !! Rotis/chapatis are NOT part of the buffet. You need to order separately. Each costs around 5 CHF.
Every indian food comes along with roti/chapati/paratha and you go to any part of the world, you will see that. Nobody charges for roti separately. How do you eat the curries without roti. What kind of indian buffet will that be???? This restaurant is to milk the innocent local swiss citizens as they are unaware of this.
So all you indian tourists beware!!!
We tried kanchi restaurant which is nearby. That seemed ok to us but that is heavily under staffed. so expect major delays there.
