What said about us
"We dined here on the second weekend of level 2, so a very busy night. Staff were efficient and friendly. The food was the best Indian i have ever tasted .... if there is “fine dining” Indian, this has to be it, including some very exciting and delicious indo-Chinese dishes. Generous servings and very affordable. The naan was incredible, buttery, crunchy outside and fluffy inside. Thank you Own Masala for an exquisite meal. Namaste"01.
"The best curry in the country and awesome friendly service. We have tried Indian restaurants around the world and Own Masala has the best chicken korma ever"02.
"We had 10 of our family turn up for curries. The service was quick, friendly and they were accommodating for our orders and additional requests. Food was some of the best curries we’ve eaten world wide. The naan was devine and the servings large. The team also sorted us out doggy bags for leftovers. Thank you own masala. We will be back. No photos as we tucked into the good food and didn’t take the time to take photos... so go see for yourselves. The challenge is to post photos since we didn’t"03.
"Unassuming local Indian restaurant with excellent flavour. Asked for 'kiwi' hot and got a good hit of spice without blowing your head off. Highly recommend."04.
"Just finished what was one of the best takeaway dinners I have had in a very long time! Got the butter chicken medium with cheese and garlic naan also tried the shrimp entree! Was amazing :)"04.
"Have been a regular customer of this restaurant for quite a while.. Food and quality of service have been improved day by day. If you are a great fan of Indian food this is a must visit suggest for you. don’t forget to try the Garlic Naan which I think is the best in town!! just ask them to make it crispy which they will nail it.. Overal, amazing restaurant with authentic Indian taste ! Note:: better to have your seats booked, as it gets too crowded in times !! specially weekends!"04.
"Nice place with good food and vegetarian options. The music was a bit too loud for me but otherwise very comfortable ambiance. Prices are slightly more expensive than some other Indian restaurants nearby but the taste and quality of the food is also better."04.
