A wide range of sauces & heat were on offer for us vegetarians but we found the vegetables rather overcooked, coconut rice & mixed veg rice both dry and naan bread greasy. We had a takeaway which can often be inferior to eating in. Friendly staff but food was disappointing.

Great tasting curry excellent value and brilliant service. Had the four course set meal for just under forty pounds and was fair to say there was more than enough for six people with so much choice. Alcohol was very well priced with a bottle of house wine around seven pounds and the waiter was always on hand to recommend or... More

We placed an order online at 18:10 for delivery by 18:55 at the latest. It didn't arrive to 19:15 and then it was not correct. It took another 20 mins for our actual order to arrive and by this time, half of it was cold. The rice was cold and dry, as were the aloo, bajhi and pakora. Our cheese... More

Our takeaway arrived. The vindaloo was watery and had three pieces of lamb in and a couple of random chunks of potato. Both curries were bland and weak in strength more akin to watery ketchup. Avoid

We ordered a takeaway for delivery at the fat cat. I ordered the Lamb Dopiaza, Pilao Rice and Peshwari Nan. We ordered for meal for 19:45 but it didn't arrive until 20:15. Although I was drinking beer and am writing this the next day I don't actually recall anything about the Dopiaza but I know from its name it should... More

Masha is our local Indian takeaway / restaurant . The restaurant itself is a bit tired but the value, food and service is excellent which more than makes up for that. We tend to only use the takeaway option at Masha which has always been reliable. The food always tastes wonderful, My usual is the very good chicken shashlik, which... More

I've been back to my home town of Ipswich once or twice a year for the last few years, and it's a kind of family tradition for my husband and I to meet up with my brother and his family for dinner out one evening during our stay. We have always been to the Masha, except for the last time... More

This was my first experience of an Indian Restaurant and I have to say that it was better than I expected it would be. I visited here with my brother who lives within reasonable walking distance of this restaurant. It's not a large restaurant but fortunately when we went in it was quiet and were seated more or less immediately.... More

I did not get what I ordered - some nan bread came instead of pilau rice. My mixed meat tandoori was was a bit overcooked so that the meat was tough and even though I asked for it hot it was not. It was greasier than I like. My glass of water was a pint glass 2/3 full, with no... More
