Masala Art is actually one of my favorite restaurants in Shanghai. Every dish is delicious and the service is great. The first time we went there for dinner they had an event going on in their main dining room that was very noisy and slowed up their service a bit but the staff was very apologetic about it and even gave us free tea. Seriously love this place, we ate there Christmas Eve and for my boyfriend's birthday. They have a really good brunch buffet for around 100rmb per person on the weekends as well. Also, they have this little sauce tray they bring out with your food and I would pretty much drink the tamarind one on it's own. To. die. for.

Hard to complain about this place. It is big and spacious, well decorated, and the staff are incredibly attentive and knowledgeable in making good recommendations. This place has become a fast favourite for my friends and me. Good food in general, but it's the Peshwari Naan and Rogan Josh that keeps us coming back again and again.

We really had a nice diner, enjoying the good food (samosa and some curry chicken dishes) and excellent service. The waiter gave us some tips/advices about some dishes and was quickly available (there was not so many people on Monday evening but still).

A frequent visitor to Kangding Lu's restaurants, and happened to spot Masala Art on the opposite side of the street. I've visited Masala Art on Dagu Lu and had a good experience, so went to try this one for lunch.
The server was very courteous, and recommended the lunch set as a value for money. They have two lunch set menu available - 68rmb and 88rmb, there was plenty of food listed down like tandoori chicken, however was in a group so decided to order from the main menu. Small appetiser (chips and 3 dips) was given during the wait for our main dishes.
Choose the butter chicken, lamb masala and vegetarian curry. All three were amazing. I have to admit that before, I was not a fan of Indian cuisine, but this is wow. The chicken was tender, and the sauces was amazing. The lamb had a few pieces of tendon which were still chewy and inedible, but the rest of the flavourful meat made up for it. The vegetarian curry had a plentiful amount of button mushroom and peas. All went very well with the garlic naan and mushroom/onion naan. Was given a bowl of diced raw vegetables and lemon to add a crunchy texture with the curries. The bowls may look small, but they are overwhelmingly fulfilling. Even had leftovers to take away.
The service was pretty good and professional, we didn't need raise our hand to ask for anything apart from to order and the bill. When the food came, each dish name was stated clearly, and overall very friendly atmosphere. Also ordered a mango lassi, but was not creamy enough. However will definitely go back again to try all the other dishes for sure!
The decor was a bit clustered: huge paintings and bracelets line a wall, a huge bar, an indoor pot plant that looks fake, peacock feathers and fake flowers stuffed in a vase. The couch seats were very comfortable, and the interior is more easier to navigate than the Dagu Lu branch. Because it's a new opening, I don't think many people know about this place so it's relatively quiet. Average of 100rmb/pp in a group inc. soft drink if order from menu.
