I've been eating at this gem for about 15 years and they have never let me down. Lunch buffet has a good variety of tasty Indian dishes for about $10, including fresh Naan. Pleasant, attentive staff. Lots of underground parking.

To begin, the only reason Masala doesn't receive 5 stars is that it's below a fitness center, and if the place is uncrowded, you can hear weights dropping on the floor above your table. This isn't the restaurant's fault, of course, but it can be disconcerting since the noise can be pronounced. The three dishes I remember our table ordering... More

My sister took me to lunch here. Masala, like most East Indian restaurants, offers a nice buffet lunch. I love Indian food, but really cannot say what is authentic or not. All I know is what tastes wonderful. The buffet here was terrific, and table service excellent with our water glasses refilled often. I enjoyed the Tandoori Chicken very much,... More

Pretty big restaurant with a good amount of selection on the menu, the mango curry is very delicious accompanied with some naan bread. The service is very good, water cup is filled almost every time you finish drinking which i find pretty helpful where i wouldn't need to ask for more water. Very nice service although parking is sometimes hard... More

This is a very quiet and uncrowded restaurant. The menu is very extensive with many main dish offerings. On the menu are five or more naans to choose from; lamb dishes, seafood, vegetarian selections, chicken, rice dishes and much more. The waiter is very courteous and service is great. The restaurant is located near an underground car parking garage and... More

We tried the food on the menu. But I think the buffet was (surprisingly) cheaper. The Coconut Curry was the best I've ever tasted. Halal but sells alcohol.

My wife's traveled to India several times, and, well, I just like Indian food. This place is pretty good. We spent a substantial part of the meal trying to figure out what the space had been used for before they moved in - a sports bar? It is underneath a 24 Hour Fitness. Still, the food and service were as... More

While I had never visited Masala at its previous location, I decided to give the newly re-opened restaurant a chance, enticed by inviting decor and positive reviews. Unfortunately while the redesign was Restaurant Impossible-worthy, the food and service were subpar. Even with a nearly empty floor, service was slow and the waitstaff seemed distracted. Between the Garlic Naan, Shrimp Masala... More

I've averaged our two visits together for this review. The first meal was above average, but the last was a complete failure. The service was horrendous, and the food wasn't much better. I can't even remember what we ordered because all I can think of are the onions and veggies that barely hit the frying pan. We won't be going... More

I discovered this location after their other location, Masala Bar & Grill in Bothell, closed down. I was excited to discover the Indian food I fell in love with was the same here! Prices are great and the restaurant is big enough to host an impromptu large gathering. Our server told us they are moving to an even nicer location... More
