Took my son there and we both really enjoyed it. Chicken saag and lamb gosht; bursting with flavour. We should have limited the rice order to one between us as the portions were so large my son had no room for the kulfi. Masala chai...More

Visited Masala Wala on a Saturday evening and had an amazing meal. One of the best currys I’ve had. The service was quick and friendly and left a great impression. Will definitely be back.
