“Very interesting Indian food for a chain”, “professional service” and a “lovely atmosphere” have carved a strong reputation for these well-established street-food cafés. “Prices seem to be creeping up” however, and even those who praise its “fresh flavours” feel it’s “not quite as good value as in the past”.

“We always go for the Grand Thali and it’s a knockout!” – These “ever-buzzing” contemporary Indians make a very “handy backstop”, with WC2 in particular “an excellent pre-theatre option” for a “fast and delicious” meal. “We thought it might be chain-bland, but the food was good and quite authentic… and good value too!”

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Pleased I can still keep coming back to Masala Zone for a reliably distinctive and tasty range of Indian dishes. Menu seems more limited post lockdown but I find when I'm pushed to try new things I rarely regret it. "
