Wide Indian regional menu with heat settings for those who can't take too much spice. Good cheerful service and good value with discount cards. Recommended for sheer quality.

Amazing fresh authentic food, beautifully presented and with attentive speedy service. The decor is contemporary, modern and spacious with modern Asian music and video projection. Unfortunately this was a little loud for my liking but was quickly turned down once asked. Due to this it didn't have quite the romantic feel, but the food and service was exquisite. Oh and who knows how the Tastcard deduction was calculated! All in all it's a must visit!

I've been going here for 10 years, mainly in the restaurant but also sometimes have delivery. The last month its gone downhill and the staff on the phone are rude and unhelpful. I waited 2 hours for my takeaway kept being told its 'on its way' we are only a few minutes drive... it then arrived cold and the naan hard, and the prawns couldn't be reheated so we're cold and awful. When I tried to complain I was told there's nothing they could do as the manager wasn't there. I tried to call the manager the day after with no luck and emailed with no response. Myself or my family will no longer be going to Cafe masala there is so much competition we won't pay high prices for poor food and service again - all without an apology.



Bought 2 starters, main, naan, and 2 dips. The mint dip fell over and drenched everything, which is a transit issue but due to how it was packed with them on top and moving about. Samosas only came with 2 which was a surprise and there was 5 bits of bite sized meat in the curry. All tasted good, just disappointing.

Best indian around. Just received a delivery, it was fast, hot and as always extremely tasty. The delivery driver was such a lovely man also. We love this place and it's always our go to when we want to go out for an Indian. Their staff are so friendly and always make you feel welcome. Looking forward to being able to dine there again in the hopefully near future
