    Pleased to see the three preceding reviews are all in-line with my feelings for Masala Art on Kanding Lu.

    Ordered from Sherpa's twice in one week for a stay-at-home dinner with friends. Not one dish wasn't a winner:

    Fish Curry
    Butter Chicken
    Spinach Curry
    3 different kinds of Naan
    Tandori Chicken [make sure to get the chimichurri sauce to go with that]

    Big points to Sherpa's for getting our order to us in 40mins. And Masala's to-go packaging is good, with everything labeled, and no mistakes.

    Actually, I am not even a big fan of Indian food, but this place is addictive and will have you coming back for more on a weekly basis. That craving just creeps up on you!

    I notice the other location had a bit different reviews, so maybe opt for the Kanding Lu spot over the Dagu Lu location.

    We ordered more food than we could eat, and it came out to about 85rmb per person. Well worth it, especially in a city where I've paid MUCH more for MUCH less.
    Great Indian good !

    Masala Art was a treat, with great value considering the food and attentive service.

    First, the food was good. Spices used in the food we on spot. We had minced lamb, a potato dish, and fish curry—all of which I would not hesitate to order again. The fish curry was special—a perfect mildly spicy flavor with boneless cod (I believe). Portions were fair, and a great value. Drinks were also quite reasonable, with generous sized glasses of wine starting at 45 RMB. Full bar available as well.

    Aesthetics were nice. Passed by this location many times, but tried it out for the first time this weekend. The restaurant is beautiful inside. Very spacious with high ceilings and Indian-style décor (I assume) that makes one feel they are somewhere foreign (bright blue seats, hardwood tables, golden chandeliers, Indian paintings, etc…) They also have a private room upstairs that would be a good spot for a get together with friends like a birthday. The room also has a piano for private entertainment—perfect if you are a Bollywood superstar looking to entertain fans during your China tour.

    Felt comfortable, with choices of booths or tables. Not too hot, not too cold. Generous leg room. We didn’t feel crowded at all.

    “Service was fantastic,” was our main takeaway when walking out the door, bellies full and satisfied.

    We’ll be back again soon! Haven't tried this yet, but also hear their takeout is great as well--something to try.

    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.
