I've visited the Masala a few time over lunch. They offer a simple buffet with about 5 dishes, along with rice and a kind of papadum. The food has always been very tasty, and the staff is very friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Restaurant is run by family members and all or bosses asking a waiter to pass a plate of roti to other table hurts their ego. Food was overly priced and didn't taste like indian food.

Average food quality, somewhat out of Center. Prices quite high compared to food quality. Food tastes somewhat close to Indian food. Even though we were the only other customer, very little attention provided. Main course comes with Rice. No frills.

The Masala is a bit up a busy street away from the central part of Luzern. Looking for an Indian meal late one Saturday night, I lucked out in getting a seat but learned that they were only serving a buffet. I opted for the one-plate version after ordering a glass of rioja. The tables were almost all in one... More

This restaurant has nothing to do with real Indian food! It is some random european mishmash made to look orange/red and pose as Indian food. Plus it is more expensive than other places! I understand that people have to modify the taste to suit Europeans but this guy has totally lost it. For actual Indian food lovers, don't go here.... More

Visited with a couple of friends for dinner. Ordered chicken kurma, beef masala and chicken tandoori. With exception of the Chicken tandoori, the food was quite blend. No typical indian taste to the food, no spyciness no twist. just boring. But I have to say that the service was very friendly and good. If the food would have been better... More
