Really excellent, authentic Indian food. Everything we ordered was fresh, flavorful, and not too oily at all. And the prices are really reasonable for the quality of the food.

Went for Happy Hour which is from 4.00 to 6.30 pm. I was there at 6.25 and the staff refused to offer Happy Hour menu, saying it was 6.45 pm (as if I didn't have a watch!). Staff was cold and impolite, to say the least.

If perfection is something we only dream of in our sleep, then NYC you need to wake up and visit this amazingly, superb East Village/LES hot spot to eat heaven on a plate! I am a discerning food adventurist who has dined at the best Indian restaurants that NYC has to offer, from budget-friendly spots to the most expensive places to eat. None of them top this warm, inviting yet beautifully designed eatery. If the décor was not enough for me and my best friend to fawn over all evening, we then encountered the best waiter on the eastside. Knowledgeable about the scrumptious food we were about to partake in, our waiter was supremely attentive and hands down the best waiter I have ever had. You see me and my buddy usually meet up late nights to have Indian at a place I will not name here because we both work weird schedules. It is somewhere in Hells Kitchen, I will say though. Before we could even order, I had a rude and unexpected encounter with the proprietor (we use to go to this place all the time - shocking), so we decided to leave, and make our way to The Masala Wala. You must have the Hakka Chili Paneer, Chicken Tikka Masala, Matta Paneer, the Mango Kulfi and everything else on the menu. I, for one am going back frequently to have everything else I could not fit into my belly, and of course to shake hands with my new friends and Papa himself, The Masala Wala. I love this man’s passion for this delicious food, his wonderful hospitality and the more than competitive price points for his sumptuous, grade-A cuisine. You cannot get any better than this restaurant. I literally smiled all the way home and woke up before work to write this review. I would be remiss not to mention that we arrived at the restaurant about 45 minutes before closing on a Wednesday evening and the food was as fresh and delectable as if they had prepared our meals for their very first dinner table of the night! Now that I have written all of that, in a word: fantastic!

Not only was the food fantastic (try the chaat), but the owner personally picked our meal and served us! It was a great experience, with great service, and great food. I highly recommend a visit.

My boyfriend and I decided to try this new restaurant because we walk by it every once in a while. The service was great and the food was like being transported back to India. The Kolkata Gobi Manchurian was delicious! The best part of it all was that the owner came up to our table and struck a conversation with us. He was very genuine and honored to have us there. There should be more customer service like that!

Great food in a relaxing atmosphere. The service was brill and the owner made us right at home. The menu is somewhat different to what we typically have in the UK so we ordered dishes we had never tried before and were not disappointed. We were also with 2 young children and the staff were great with them. Highly recommended and will come back.
