This was the second of Chef Hemant Oberoi's Masala restaurants to open (after Delhi's Masala Art) and the idea was to draw on traditional recipes, eliminate some of their unhealthier elements and to cook them in glamorous surroundings, vaguely reminiscent of an Indian restaurant in London. There are the usual Masala touches: live counters for cooking, olive oil in many dishes and flour that is freshly milled every day. If you are entertaining a foreign visitor to Bombay, then this is the place to take him.
This is indian food at its best, I don't like hot food so ordered mild which in most cases mean no flavour. The tasty was fantastic with loads of spice and not to much heat
We had a lovely meal here. The food is very good and the staff are nice and helpful. The food is very pricey for what it is and no better than the Indian food at Aquarius, which is a nicer setting. We probably wouldn’t return but in all we still had a pleasant evening.
We,a family of three went for lunch. A foreigner who is not familiar with Indian cuisine might find it interesting food. If you are an Indian please don't bother going. The food taste is just not worth d price. It was such a let down....you don't serve such average tasting food at such a price. Even the ambience is nothing much. So why bother. Only great thing was the staff and their service....signature Taj hospitality of the courteous and ever so attentive staff. But over all very disappointing.
Beautiful surroundings in the Taj hotel , friendly attentive and helpful service . Lovely food authentically Indian but expect to pay for it . Over £ 50 per head without drinks . No alcohol was available due to the election . We had barbecued prawns butter chicken and a lamb curry , rice and Naans . Finished off with fresh mango which at £15 for a portion we renamed Indian Caviar . ! I’m not complaining it was a wonderful experience and in iconic surroundings just remember to take your credit card - you will need it .
This is my 1st Visit to Masala Kraft,Taj Mahal Palace,Colaba.What better day then my 13th Marriage Anniversary:- Location :- Just Opposite the Arabian Sea,Gateway of India - although this cannot be seen while in restaurant. Ambience:- Authentic Indian with the Music / Smell & attire of the staff. Food:-Not to mention they lived upto the standard and i am sure the chef is not using the ready made Indian Spice Mix ,but instead they mix the spices which add more flavours to the food. Service:- No doubt you want to visit this place again. Menu:- Although not so big for Choices but every one in the family will be tank filled & delighted at the end. Catch of the Review :- I had ordered a Wine for 2 of us and this Guy Named "Tushar" ,don't know how but he somehow judged to be some occasion and he asked ! What was next - after the meal there was a complimentary Chocolate Cake Freshly made. Well ,could there be more we can ask to make the evening more wonderful & special . Thank u "Tushar". Hopefully visiting again for your gesture Tushar.
It may seem like Indian food may have undiscovered all they were entitled to but somehow chefs manage to evoke something unexpected from their traditional recipe trunk. It has become sort of an obsession with the chefs to recreate traditional Indian dishes or discover recipes lost in time to entice their patrons. It was with this precise reason that ‘Masala’ restaurants were conjured. Brainchild of Chef Hemant Oberoi of Taj Hotels, Masala restaurants were a way to bring back traditional Indian recipes with a bit more healthier bang and present them in glamourous surroundings. After the success of Masala Art restaurant in New Delhi, the arrival of ‘Masala Kraft’ in Mumbai was much anticipated. Soon the restaurant became an iconic dining destination for North Indian food and gourmets flocked to Taj Mahal Palace at Apollo Bunder, where the restaurant is located, for a taste.
The menu is a perfect reflection of Chef Oberoi’s Punjabi roots and his personal Amritsari favorites simply shines through. The chef has been ingenious enough to take account of some Pakistani Punjabi dishes as well, which you will find to be authentically prepared. Masala Kraft is busy all year round, do book in advance. Be aware, this is one expensive place. Go with a substantial wallet. Chances are you will find your favorite celebrity dining next to your table. Enjoy a glass of wine to go with your meal or stick to some traditional aperitif. Open the menu with starters like, tandoori pink salmon, kurkure aloo, lucknavi seekh, doodhiya murgh tikka or kakori kebab. For a more extensive fare sample their delectable curries. A bowl of fragrant biryani or a basket of fresh phulkas will complement your main course perfectly.
Relish a cup of specialty tea or Taj’s own coffee blends with your dessert course. How about indulging in, Amritsari kulfa falooda or baked gulab jamun yoghurt or balai ka tukda or khubani ki phirni to round off your meal? As you step inside Masala Kraft, you will notice an elegant intense interior. Heavy wooden influence marks the place with thick low chiseled wooden rafters working well against black carved pillars. Sheer wooden screens are used to divide the space. Lighting is dim and intimate. While the menu is purely North Indian, the interiors bear a distinct South Indian impression. If you are entertaining a foreign guest, this is the place to bring him.
