This restaurant was packed when we visited; we had a wait about 10 minutes to get a table. We ordered seekh kabab for appetizer. It was excellent. We were, however, disappointed with the biryani. Apart from the right mix of spices, biryani should be flavored...More

Masala Art is a delicious Indian restaurant in the heart of Tenleytown. It is some of the best Indian cuisine in the area. The staff is always very friendly and the food is incredible.

Though the place was good- the interior and furniture but what we expected, we didn't got. I have tried many Indian restaurants and their taste is something different and unique. But at this place, the buffet was not only expensive but not tasty too! I...More
