    Wonderful meal as usual. I am gluten free and my daughter is a vegetarian and we went last night with two friends who eat everything. We had the liquid explosion and what my daughter calls "the blooby lentil thing" as starters, and potatoes, eggplant, spinach saag, duck and lamb for mains. I had the gluten free roti for the first time. Everything was SUPERB. You all never disappoint.

    Nice food, different to your usual British 'curry house' approach by design; that's why we wanted to try it. This meant a slightly limited menu though.

    Another WONDERFUL meal at Masalla Dabas. We love it there. The menu is really authentic, the food always fresh and flavourful, and it also caters to veggies, vegans and celiacs/gluten free people. Highly recommended. Also - affordable. Dinner for three was £55.

    Lovely food great infusion of flavours. Service was quite slow and difficult to get someone’s attention. Very noisy and echoey. Would go back though.
