The food was amazing! Full of flavor and unique. I recommend the place for business, friends and family. The place is quite and lovely, unlike most restaurants nearby that are loud and noisy. Furthermore the service was excellent.

The food was ok. Nothing special. The service was quick. The cocktails were good. The meal size was small. My friend and I ordered a ' Grand Thali '. I'm not sure why it's called that. It was disappointing in size but tasted ok.

Visited the Masala Zone in Soho with the family. We were seated in the basement part of the restaurant. The food was tasty and the service was good. The choice of wines specially the red wines was limited and was very expensive.
