Plus the service is too quick (never thought I’d complain about that) – went to meet a friend there a few months back and we had finished our meal within 25 minutes…

Service was about okay, but food was completely inedible. Everything we ordered was dry and bland, naan bread was not cooked properly. To be fair to them the place was very clean. The waiter talked us into ordering far too much and we ended up with a huge bill and a feeling of disappointment. Avoid.
I can't speak for the eat-in experience, but I ordered a take-away from here recently and was hugely disappointed given the great reputation it has.
We found the curry to be very bland and starters to be cold and chewy. Very uninspiring, not brilliant value, and I have no intention of visiting in person.
Masala Zone is a chain and I have been to most of them. This one is nice because it does not get very full (except on some weekends). This is nice because then you don’t feel rushed as in some of the other busier restaurants in the chain. Food overall is nice, but there is a lack of choice. You can only choose from the set dishes on the menu, no alternative with another meat or no meat can be made. However the thali is usually lovely, and I found I could share a grand thali quite comfortably with my boyfriend. Top recommendation however would be the street foods. These are delicious and very unusual in Indian restaurants here. The cold veggy street food platter is DELICIOUS
I’ve eaten here twice and to be honest I wasn’t very impressed.
As far as the quality of food went it was okay but I felt like I could get exactly the same quality of food from tesco for half the price.
The service was pretty slow which wouldn’t usually bother me but as i was on my lunch break it was a bit frustrating.
The main problem with this place is that it has no character at all and no atmosphere.
The food is average, the service is ok but not great so it isn’t strictly somewhere that I would avoid, if other people want to go there I wouldn’t object but I certainly wouldn’t choose to eat there.
The thali sets are good value for money as you get a great selection of food that is very filling. This branch of Masala Zone has a really nice atmosphere and great decor which makes you feel nice and warm on a winter’s evening.
The service at Masala Zone really makes it stand out from the rest - staff were very attentive and helpful when picking out items from the menu. I don’t know if they can keep this up when the restaurant is at full capacity as it was only half full when I visited with a friend, but it seems like they have all been really well trained and enjoy their jobs so I suspect so.
I don’t know if I would visit often due to the price outside of the lunchtime thali set deal; it is quite expensive for a meal for two even before you order drinks. This is a great spot for a slightly more expensive outing when you fancy something a little more polished than your usual indian restaurant.
I have seen this chain about, one in Islington, another in Soho but never had the chance to sample. Finally I manage to visit the one in Camden and I was really impressed. I’m not a huge fan of Indian but this has changed my mind. The service from the moment we entered to the guy opening the door as we left we perfect and really friendly. The food was good too. I took the Thali combination (the more expensive one) with a Prawn curry and I loved all of it. My only complaint is that I wish there was a little more rice and little more of the curry. It was only just enough for me but my boyfriend was left feeling hungry at the end and felt more that he just wanted more rice and a bit more curry than extra side dishes. I think this is the way they hope you spend more. For 2 thali platters a beer and a coke it was £30 So we were pretty pleased overall. It was out of here or Nandos and I think they come under the same level of eating out, service etc and similar price. I wouldnt mind a masala zone in Harrow!
When building work started over a year ago at the derelict Rat and Parrot pub next door, we never imagined how much our lives would be ruined by constant building work from dawn til dusk, 7 days a week. When the refurbishment was finally finished in December, and Masala Zone opened its doors, the manager came over to apologise personally for the disruption, and gave us a voucher for a meal for two. So, already pleased by our new neighbours, we went for our meal and were very impressed. The big thing here is the thali - a mixture of curries and sides served on one metal plate and you can choose from any of the main curries on the menu to be included in your meal. We had two different starters, and both were delicious. And our thalis did not disappoint. The restaurant is really nicely done-up, with prints of Indian posters covering the walls and gorgeous coloured glass lampshades. And the staff were extremely attentive, knew the menu really well and made some good suggestions for the food and wine, without being pushy. Overall, it was a delightful meal and would recommend this particular Masala Zone (it's part of a small chain) very highly.
