Masala Zone Soho Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Masala Zone Soho:

1) Are you a curry snob? Welcome to an authentic experience: Masala Zone creators - Ranjit Mathrani, his wife Namita Panjabi, and her sister (and author of 50 Great Curries of India), Camellia Panjabi - have researched every corner of India’s multicultural culinary landscape to get well-rounded recipes.

2) Mughlai. Punjabi. Gujarati. Lucknowi. Hyderabadi. Goan. Kerala. Masala Zone’s menu boasts recipes from seven Indian areas, featuring unique flavour combinations that are specifically authentic to these regions.

3) Find it hard to choose when it’s time to order? Try a thali and get a little bit of everything. Or, jump right in and order some sumptuous favourites: the Idiappam seafood biryani, the lamb chops, the Coondapur ghee roast duck with dosas. Start your tasting on a strong note with a negroni, ginger mojito or mango bellini.

4) Fancy a non-alcoholic drink? Tackle a refreshing lassi. There are loads of flavours. A fat-free lassi, with fresh coriander and cumin seeds? Spicy? What’s spicy? These will cool the fires of your favourite dishes.

5) Masala Zone prides itself on bringing authentic street food to Central London. Staples such as dahi puri, gol guppa, pau bhaji, samosas, minced lamb patties stuffed with herbs and  a Sindhi favourites (lamb curry with hunks of toasted bread) are available to order at your table.

6) Are you a designophile? Great: Indo-Asian interior design and art pepper the restaurant for an atmosphere that’s casually stylish and fun. A nice combo of contemporary design with Indian popular art.

7) It’s historical: the Soho restaurant was the first Masala Zone location to open (other locations include Camden Town, Earls Court, Islington, Covent Garden and Bayswater). It debuted in Soho’s hyper-changing naughties neighbourhood and London’s impressionable foodie community back in 2001.

8) Shop ‘til you drop then eat yourself sleepy. After shopping on Oxford Street, Regent Street and Carnaby Street, satiate yourself after a long day. Kick back in comfy seats and gorge on rich Indian cuisine.

9) It’s one of the popular kids: Masala Zone was London’s Most Popular Restaurant Group by Zagat in 2014.

10) If you’re a points addict and collect loyalty rewards, you can get your fix here too. Flash your VIP QR code on your smartphone and you get points towards a meal at your next nosh sesh.

“Really excellent service. The lamb korma was surprisingly delicious. I thought this might be an Indian Pizza Express type experience but it is anything but. The restaurant itself is not too flash but the location - right near Carnaby street in the centre of Soho - makes it ideal for post-bar or post-pub group gatherings. And fairly inexpensive too.”

“It was an amazing experience having food at Masala Zone. tomorrow i'll complete one month of my stay in London and i was craving for genuine, real, spicy indian food. Moreover, as Vir Sanghvi had mentioned in his cover story on the Panjabi sisters, in the Brunch Magazine, back home in india, I had to visit the place and try food there. I am planning to visit other outlets by the Panjabi sisters in the future. Well i am here for at least one year and would visit Veeraswamy as well. Coming back to the food - i must say it was of good quality and amazing variety. I was happy with the Grand Thali - I shared it with a friend from university. It was very economical. Wow it had been a good experience. However i would appreciate if Masala added extra spices and also experimented with other vegetables curries and variety of veg combinations. ”
