I've been there in 2013. By then the service was good, they had nice wine and tasty food. I really enjoyed my time there. Not sure if it's still as good as.

This was the original Bollywood Masala, but in recent days it has shut down permanently. Its offshoot in Kingston will now be the only Bollywood Masala. Another restaurant has set up in the Dickson premises, but it is a big loss for those of us...More

Enjoyed going here after leaving Delhi 6 due to poor service. Great food, excellent service. Don't waste your time at Delhi 6...just go here instead! Wonderful naan bread!

nicely balanced use of spices with the food. The spices in the vegetable mixed entree were especially balanced not vorepowering like many indian restaurants. The lamb shank, reputably the signature dish was, we thought, a littel unbalanced with what appeared to be a standard butter...More

Chose this on other reviews and were not disappointed. 3 curries, rice and naan easily fed our family of 4 with just the right amount of heat. Would go back.

This modern Indian restaurant ticked all of the boxes on a recent very cold night. The décor was uncluttered, but interesting and the service was great. I am chilli challenged and had no issues at all with the food which was tasty and prompt. We...More

Bollywood has been preparing first rate Indian food for years now, we have never been disappointed when going there. Their leg of lamb is their signature dish, and it lives up to its reputation. A great location in Dickson, BYO wine, takeaway at lunch and...More

Family of five dined over the ANZAC weekend. Food had a lot of flavour. Entrees were quite spicy for kids so suggest you get some Yogurt. Atmosphere, tables, lighting, etc. all more upmarket than your usual Indian corner store restaurant.

Bollywood Masala is an award winning Indian restaurant operating in Dickson for over 9 years and newly opened in Kingston. Its commitment to cooking food in the traditional indian style, using key ingredients cooked in-house, set it apart from other Indian restaurants. While all dishes are prepared with equal love and attention, signature dishes like the Leg of Lamb, Stuffed Squid, Dal Bollywood and fig and almond kulfi are worth a try. All food is cooked to order and naan breads served fresh from the tandoor. Plenty of vegetarian, gluten free options. Takeaway meals and competitively priced catering services are available.
