Squaremeal Review of Masala Zone Earl's Court ?

It wasn’t so long ago that ‘going for a curry’ meant throat-wrenching vindaloos, warm lager and lurid flock wallpaper. Masala Zone makes such provincial clichés seem like ancient history. This sparky, London-only group of Indian ‘brasseries’ is known for its smart service, ethnic soundtrack and folk art-bedecked interiors – the Rajasthani puppets at the Covent Garden branch are a must-see. As the cheap-but-chic member of the Chutney MaryVeeraswamy and Amaya stable, bowls of bog-standard chicken tikka masala are beneath its dignity. No, Masala Zone is all about fresh, balanced meals inspired by Indian home cooking, market stalls and palace chefs. Kick off with street-food nibbles such as samosas, papdi chaat or jumbo prawns from the grill, ahead of a textbook thali featuring your choice of curry and daily changing accompaniments.

There are precious few worthwhile restaurants worth the name in the immediate vicinity of Earls Court Road Underground Exit. Masala Zone had looked the only likely contender but oh dearie me. On entering it quickly became apparent that the waitress supposed to be greeting us/taking our order was linguistickly challenged in plain English department. Every jab of ours at the menu was greeted with puzzled frowns,request for repetition and a have vibe of hesitant uncertainty. Eventually we 'thought'our...

This is a chain and i have been to a few of their branches, and its a good charin. The first night we were early enough for their special, which was a good deal and tasty to boot. On our second visit, we had a more substantial meal, the thali with lots of little dishes of delicious things.

Buzzy evening

Generally great food, especially the chops and the rogan josh. The naans were poor – didn't feel fresh out of the tandoor but were flat and doughy. More choice in vegetables would also be good. The staff were attentive and obliging – full marks! The atmosphere was a good mix – lively and buzzy, but not intrusive enough to drown out conversation. Decor and hygiene were fine, so all in all, would go again.
