This restaurant is the only reason Indian I hadn't moved away from Orpington! It is a seriously good meal, with a well-thought out menu and plentiful drinks offer. This visit saw me same soft shell crab starter as always, and it's as good as ever....More

I had heard good things about Masala Dabbas and I must say I wasn't disappointed. The food was very good and authentic and not the typical "British Curry House" experience. For starters, we ordered liquid explosion(pani puri/gol gappa), veg manchurian and a veg platter. All...More

We thought the food here was exceptional. Totally different kind of Indian food and a great asset to the High St.

I had an excellent lunch here. I'd especially recommend the "Liquid Explosion" starter - you are served a few crisp spheres that you fill with a chilled soup-like liquid. Pop in your mouth, and you get what the name suggests! For my main, I had...More

We were a group of 7 and arrived when the restaurant opened at 6pm. The food is traditional so you won't get onion bhajis or other side dishes. However, the food is wonderful. If you like a madras, they will make the dish of your...More
