So what does the name 'masala' mean?

"We believe the hidden secret to quality flavoursome Indian dishes is the masala that it is cooked with, hence our restaurant is named after it." So what is masala? It is a complex combinations of freshly prepared spice mixes and proportionately blended for each dish using stone grinders. The fresh masala is then cooked in a carefully orchestrated sequence to give the best quality to our dishes. The masala is the foundation to all indian curries and it is what it gives it taste and flavour and makes indian cooking unique from other world cuisines."

The way of Masala Club

As oppose to buying ready-made mix powder spices, we import the specialist whole spices from India, Bangladesh and other parts of the World to maintain the quality and richness of its flavours.

The whole spices are dried in our kitchen and grinded and mixed by our chefs on demand to maintain the best quality and freshness of masala mix- similar to the way coffee beans are grinded on demand in coffee shops to give you a rich and fresh taste in your coffee.
