Indian Food – Masala

Masala Indian Restaurant

(Edit – This place has been renamed Maharajah. It looks the same from the outside, but I haven’t been in for a while so I don’t know if it has changed at all from the original post below.)

Near the Temple of the Five Concubines on Wufei Street is a small Indian restaurant with some pretty good food. Compared to most Taiwanese food it’s a little pricey, but by international standards it’s just mid-ranged. The menu has many of the cuisine standards people have come to expect such as mutton korma or chicken tikka masala. And though many of the dishes are altered towards the Taiwanese palate a bit, the quality of the dishes is quite good. I would put this restaurant up against many of the Indian restaurants I tried in Taipei.

It’s a cozy little restaurant with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, orange walls, high-backed wooden chairs, and red upholstered benches. The tacky artwork is kind of fun, as are the Bollywood musicals and Indian pop videos that play on a flat screen and through the sound system. The food is served with nice presentation on good dishware. It’s a good place to bring a date or visiting relatives.

Ordering from the menu a la carte pushes the price tag up pretty quickly as many of the curries run from NT$200 – $350. The set menus are a pretty good deal at NT$500 per person and give you a full set of courses. There’s a weekday lunch special for about NT$250.
