33 Reviews for Masala Indian Restaurant
He ordered Medium Butter Chicken, I ordered Mild Lemon Chicken, and x2 pieces of Garlic Naan. It totalled $37 and was a Takeaway meal.
I was disgusted with the quality of food we received. The Butter Chicken was Mild, not medium as requested and the Lemon Chicken was NOT what it should have been.
We used to live in Stanmore Bay and were very regular customers of their Masala Restaurant and have never had such a poor quality of food delivered!!
On writing a complaint letter to Masala, I have heard nothing in return, which in turn I feel goes to show what type of a restaurant they are running.
I would not recommend this particular Masala restaurant to anyone.
Incredibly poor quality of food, no response when a complaint is laid and a rip off at full price when what you receive is not what you ordered!!
The atmospheres very warm and inviting and the staff attentive and friendly.
I ordered a lamb masala the 1st time and good old butter chicken the next and received a good quantity of curry both times. The naan bread was also excellent! And so were the wedges!
Would definitely go again.
They have a spesh on every mon, tues and wed where mains are all 10 bucks! V good value for money!
We can say this was without a doubt the worst meal we have ever had at a Masala and probably the worst Indian meal anywhere. The food was actually an insult. The dishes were so watery and runny with very little ‘food’ actually in it. It looked and tasted as if it had been watered down with a mountain of butter. The dahl had about half the amount of lentils there should be; they were swimming in butter.
The staff were completely indifferent to our obvious disatissfaction.
Masala has a great concept but this place was a shocker. Not surprisingly, it was the quietest we have ever seen a Masala restaurant.
Then in March of this year a big group of us went in on a busy Wednesday night.
We waited at least 45 minutes to even be served and the whole experience went downhill from there, the food was absoultely terrible – a friend’s chicken was obviously undercooked, naturally we complained and they offered a voucher – which we did not accept.
A few hours after leaving the resturant I became violently ill. This began a nightmare that lasted eight months !! I lost almost 20kgs in that time, missed copius amounts of work due to constant stomach problems and my doctors could not figure out what the problem was until recently (after many invasive and upsetting experiences!!) They have finally found that I have had a serious helicobacter pylori infection.
I do beleive that it began and was caused by the horrible food at Masala and I would never ever consider going there again, and cannot even walk past the building!!!!!!!
this is better than any London Brick lane curry and the price is great during the week. We have moved out of the area and travel back just to have a curry.
The lastest refurb makes outdoor dinning great in the summer with a cold beer.
This is one of the best indian restaurants ever.
Something has changed and it is very much for the better. The food is now consistently very good and the new refurb really does set the scene. Glad we gave you a second chance.
Happy to recommend to all.
Great value for money on their $10 mains nights (Mon, Tues & Wed). We used to get it delivered when we lived in Glenfield and was late a few times but we did not mind waiting for such good curry! We now live in Torbay and are happy to go to Birkenhead for what we consider to be the BEST CURRY!
I’ve been to Curry N Spice several times with my husband and friends since moving to Birkenhead and we have always had great and friendly service and great food to boot.
My husband is of Indian decent and my family has Fijian roots and we know good tasting curry when we have it and you certainly get that at Curry N Spice.
If you want a chilled out curry night that has BYO – this is the place to go if you are in Birkenhead.
Host was hot, was smiley faces staff…too good…i will recommennd my more friends..
The service when dining in is half-hearted and the food no better, often very salty.
I don’t normally put a place down so bluntly but we’ve given them several chances to get it right and it’s frustrating when your local Indian restaurant falls so far short.
EDIT: this review was written when the restaurant was under different management (and name – Curry & Spice), we’ve eaten here since and it is much improved, still not quite the authentic Indian dining I’m after. Will write another review if we go here again.
