My first impression, nice decor but try as they may the building can’t shake off its little chef vibe. Lots of big windows over looking a petrol station and a car park. It lacks a cosy ambiance, felt like sitting in a fish bowl. Prices...vary, some items were good value others seemed over priced. £2.25 for a pickle tray to accompany poppadoms at .85p each seemed over the top to me. We really enjoyed the starters, chicken tikka came out sizzling and onion bhajis were really good. Also the service was very good, waiting time was perfect, not rushed but not kept waiting either. When it came to the mains we were impressed with the portion sizes. The pilau rice was yellow, personally I would have preferred less of it with more colours. I was disappointed their menu didn’t include tandoori chicken and there’s no option to have tikka chicken for the balti or massala. The chicken used in the main meals was a little tough. Overall the meal was ok but it didn’t blow me away. I would go back but not regularly.More

I called in the day before our meal as I have food allergies and wanted to check which dishes were safe for me. The staff were really helpful and emailed me out a spreadsheet which showed all potential allergens for each of the dishes. When...we went for our meal the next day the food was fantastic and staff knowledgeable about the menu. Would highly recommend.More

Well seen excellent reviews including from TIME OUT, which has obviously boosted their numbers but frankly it's another just above average Indian restaurant. There are many far worse and to be fair as said it's just above average but nothing special and some of it...dissapointing. It's so depressing how difficult outside London it is to find more authentic interesting Indian restaurants, but guess most of the piblic are to blame, who are not discerning on Indian food and want the same old things. This restaurant needs to decide whether it gives the majority what they like and make a nice living or do something more unique and interestingMore

Visited MaCh for a meal recently and it was faultless! The atmosphere was great and the food was simply delicious. The staff were very attentive and the service overall was fantastic. Nice to visit an Indian restaurant that takes pride in its appearance – 10/10...for the décor! It is definitely the new favourite!!More

We enjoyed a delicious vegan meal in this deservedly popular restaurant. The onion bhaji, vegetable curry, aubergine curry and roti were all excellent, flavoursome and satisfying. Who can deny that meat is a superfluous element when it is the garlic, ginger and aromatic herbs and...spices which provide the lion's share of the wonderful flavours? The staff as usual were professional, courteous, and attentive, delivering a quality service throughout the meal.More

Never disappointed with the standard of the meals which are absolutely delicious. We usually have a takeaway which are always hot and plentiful. We keep going back year in, year out, so must be good!

MaCh is by far the best restaurant and takeaway in Lincoln. Every meal I have ever had from there has been superb and absolutely delicious. When we eat in the whole atmosphere and service is fantastic and should be highly commended. Wouldn't think of going...anywhere else for a meal. Long may they continue.More

A large glass of house wine e.g Sauvignon Blanc is £5-£6. Quite a big list so something for everyone.
