I was shocked my mum had actually organised a small family gathering into such a small compact, damp little building?? There was only 5 of us and I was shocked in a BAD WAY as to how awful things got from there!! Patrick Star from SpongeBob prob eats tastier slime from rocks than we had for dinner here!! None of us enjoyed our food, didn't stay for pudding or coffee and there wasn't anyone other than the young waiter to complain to. Don't go!!!

We had a good dinner here - what stands out is that the menu is not the same as every other Indian. There are some interesting fish and duck dishes. Service was good and the place is clean and well kept.

We have regularly visited this restaurant for the two course set lunch. The choice is great and the food well presented and tasty. We expected small portions for this deal but they were generous. We will keep returning and would reccommend Masala Bay to anyone who likes good Indian food.

Although this is probably the most expensive Indian restaurant in Christchurch, it has to be said that you pay for what you get.

We have eaten from the evening and at Lunch menu, and i must say the food and service has been nothing short of outstanding.

All food is fresh and wonderfully presented with attentative staff. We are vegetarians and have never been disappointed. You can taste the food, with the spice never being so overpowering that you can't taste the underlying "body" of the course. That said the "hotness" of the food is through taste rather than just burning chili and the like.

Highly recommended
