We always enjoy eating at this restaurant when we visit Banff. Staff are friendly; great food and good selection of wine. I had the chicken tikka masala and my husband the lamb rogan josh, both were flavourful and cooked well. Till our next visit!

First off, it's really expensive for an Indian restaurant!! And the food was just ok. I had butter chicken, and the chicken was fullnof lumps. My boyfriend had Tikka Masala, it was good but a bit too spicy since he asked for mild. I'm giving 3 stars because the staff was so friendly.

Had to book a table the day before for an evening meal as they had a large party in when we called in. I enjoyed a lovely Lamb saag and hubby had the fish curry. The staff were very attentive and the curries were very good.

First evening meal in Banff - found this restaurant almost tucked away and asked if they could fit us in. We found that normally tables have to be booked in advance but if we could wait they would find room. We asked how long the wait would be as my husband is diabetic and woud need something sweet in the... More

We returned to Masala this weekend in great anticipation of enjoying one of their always wonderful meals. When we arrived Anish,the manger, promptly greeted us with a warm smile and welcomed us back to the restaurant. Once we were seated we were treated to Papdams to enjoy while we looked at the menu. We have had a number of dishes... More

The atmosphere, service, and food were all great. The prices were very reasonable. My husband and me were going to try the lunch buffet at Masala, unfortunately our afternoon activities took longer than anticipated, so we went for dinner instead. I ordered Aloo Gobhi and my husband chose the Butter chicken. We shared an order of rice (it was big... More

We ate here a few years ago and decided to do so again. We were not disappointed. The food is very tasty. Prices are average to a tad high - but then pretty much everything in Banff is priced a bit higher than it ought to be...

Masala is a good Indian restaurant with great service. The byriani (mostly rice) dishes were very good. It was casual and comfortable.
