The Masala continues to get lots of great reviews (just check Facebook and TripAdvisor)! The owner, John, and team are great and it's in a handy location. You can park in St. Julian's Friars round the corner. The range of curries is brilliant and it's always a nice atmosphere.
Visited yesterday and we both had the Sunday Buffet. Great value and all the dishes were very tasty and lovely to be able to try all of them. All the staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. Will definately visit again if we are in Shrewsbury.

Excellent food, good location, easy to get to. My friends and family have had various social events there over the years. I cannot fault the food, service, and attention to detail. The owner and his staff will go to great lengths to ensure that you have a memorable evening. I have no problems recommending this restuarant.
Recommended by a friend, I ordered a takeaway from Masala tonight and it was very good indeed. Order ready to collect within 15 mins (tikka masala, rogan josh). The food was fresh, flavoursome, hot(temperature) and very satisfying (tasty coriander naan too and crisp poppadoms). Very reasonable prices. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Even though I had to collect, it was worth getting in the car for and parking not a problem. Would definitely use this curry house again. Thanks.

We've had a number of great nights out at the masala. The team are always friendly and attentive and there's a good buzz about the place. John, the owner, seems to be front of house 24/7 and you can tell the passion he has for his business. In some restaurants you can feel like you're just another number, another face... but at the masala it's like you're one of the family!
Absolutely brilliant! The best team in Shrewsbury - such kind hearted, friendly and happy individuals ready to treat every customer like royalty! We always recommend The Masala to EVERYONE and do come as often as we can for the great service and great food EVERY SINGLE TIME :)
We have been to The Masala several times for our take aways over the last few years, as they are the best around. It is always cooked to perfection and the order has always been right! Always a happy, friendly member of staff to greet you. Staff that actually care about their customers are hard to come by, but John and his staff excel in every way - looking forward to our meal there next week.
If you want the red carpet treatment - time after time - this is THE Indian restaurant to go to. John Musafa and his staff are the best and the food is exceptional. And he usually throws in a complimentary side dish plus a glass or two before you leave. I love this place whether for a sit down meal or a takeaway.
We love the Masala - the food is always excellent and John and his team are always friendly and helpful. I very highly recommend eating in or getting a takeaway.

I have known John, the owner of The Masala, for years. Not only does he believe in excellent service, he is a caring man who supports local people and businesses. I was eating in there the other night and he popped in despite the fact it was his night off. Why? Because he'd heard that some of his old customers had come over from Oswestry for a meal and he wanted to say hello. I felt that an attitude like John's needed to be commended.
We had a really great meal from The Masala last night. It has been some time since we had an Indian takeaway so we were a bit "out of touch" with standards locally. We chose The Masala because they were on the best of and also because we have eaten John's food in the past, and it has always been excellent. This is still the case - we had a great meal, full of delicious flavours and very high quality, really nice friendly staff and reasonably priced. Even our daughter wolfed the food down and she's the fussiest eater we know! Overall, superb and we can't wait to order from you again.
Well what can I say, at last an Indian Restaurant in Shrewsbury that has it all. John the Manager at the Masala ensures you have the very best time in his restaurant from start to finish. The service is great, the food is great and all at a great price.
The Masala is the best indian restaurant in town and my parents should know that they love indian cuisine! John and his team are very friendly and accommodating without looking over you shoulder the whole time! We have many family celebrations there and itʼs always enjoyable as is the food which is well priced. We also use the takeaway service which is just as good. John is always hospitable and so welcoming- i would recommend the Masala over all other indian restaurants in Shrewsbury and iʼve been to them all!
Weʼve had a few meals now at The Masala and theyʼve all been great evenings. Thereʼs a real buzz about the place and John, the owner, is always front of house. Heʼs got a lot of loyal customers, from what I could see.
The locationʼs great too, just round the corner from St. Julianʼs car park. Iʼve heard things are going so well Johnʼs even expanding the business. Good luck to him - nice bloke, and great food!
