Masala Indian Fusion is actually an excellent choice for classic, non-fusion Indian dishes, like the mutton khandari–a dish Ozumo pronounces the Best Indian Dish Ever. Order it “incredibly” spicy and they’ll actually bring it to you that way–they won’t gringo you. It’s painful and beautiful, and comes with saffron-tinged basmati rice and piping-hot naan.
This place serves food with fresh, complex flavors, and even the lunch buffet is great. Water pitchers are filled with citrus and mint and the mango lassi is garnished with saffron threads–details that hint at the overall quality of everything they serve. Stick to the traditional menu, and you won’t be disappointed.
