Had difficulty in booking a table in Derry for dinner but luckily got into Mama Masala. The ambience, food and service were excellent. Must come to Derry to revisit this superb restaurant.

I have been to this restaurant every time I visit the city and it never lets me down. Try the black prawns or the monkfish. Both are wonderful, the best I have had.

For anyone wanting the experience of authentic Indian cuisine, there is no place as good as Mama Masala in Derry/Londonderry. The food is fantastic and there is a very varied menu to choose from. The friendly staff will explain each dish and cookit to your liking. They will encourage you to try different dishes rather than sticking with the same... More

I went here with family, the food was average to say the least and the staff not overly friendly or helpful. My mum asked for tea and they said they ran out of teabags? There are numerous shops within a 5 minute walk but no one took any initiative which really sums the place up.

never eat all day and had beautiful meal with my wife. Poppadoms were good to start. Then had chilli chicken tandoori starter. Rachel got chicken makhina which is always good. I thought I would try something different and ordered monkfish that was new on the menu. Was so impressed thank you.

We were lucky to get a window table - the views are stunning - the food was incredible - the monkfish was the most popular choice on our table. The staff were also all very friendly and helpful with menu choices

Thank Judith M
