“Great example of an excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

My experience at masala jacks restaurant was really good. The food at masala jacks looks simple but the flavours have remarkable depth. The restaurant is both clean and tidy and all the staff members there are very welcoming. I would recommend masala jacks to my family and friends as my experience there was met to expectation and I myself will be visiting masala jacks again.

“Great service & lovely staff, however food very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Came here for mother in laws birthday in March. Really nice atmosphere & staff very attentive & friendly. Owner seems a genuinely nice guy and took time out to have a conversation & a joke with us about different things. They even went out their way to buy table decorations & cake for the party for a small charge which is good as saves you the time & hassle to do so yourself. Food and drinks ordered & arrived promptly. However, food was a bit bland and watery which was really disappointing as was looking forward to a really tasty Indian meal. Portions are a little on the small side too. Other than that, it was a good evening and reasonably priced food & soft drinks.

“Good - but disorganised!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

Overall Masala Jacks is a good restaurant, and as it's only been around for a while it will generally have some teething problems. I've been there around 5-10 times now and it's always the same story. The food is generally quite slow (once I waited 40 minutes for some grilled fish) and the drinks are generally quite poor.

The best thing about it is that the food is generally quite healthy, with it all being cooked on the grill. The downside is that usually the food comes off the grill tasting the same - especially when you order a mixed grill!

Overall, I'd recommend the grilled fish (if you can be bothered to wait for it) - it makes for a decent takeaway as it's quite different to anything else you can get.

“Great food, good service, a must visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

When you visit a restaurant the food has got to be good, and Masala Jacks does not disappoint.

Great friendly service provided by the waiters, and an overall pleasant visit on every occasion.

The only con would be the size of the place and limited seating at times, especially if you're with family.

Definitely recommend this place if you're ever in Coventry, up there amongst the best in Cov!
