  • This is the best tasting Indian food ever!!! The food was awesome and the servers were helpful in recommending the dishes. I always come here with my friends and family and they all love it as well. You have to order the right combination of dishes and then share with your friends.......like family style. Such delicious food with so much of variety. On top"" GLUTEN FREE"".........how much healthier can it get. I will highly recommend it.

  • Order: Butter Chicken, Palak Paneer, lababdar, Tandoori chiken, Eggplant, Tandoori Fish,

  • I see a lot of reviewers complaint about Massey's and have to come to their defense.

    Firstly I am NOT going to drive all the way to Toronto just for dinner, also restaurants in Toronto are more competitive with their portions and prices because they have to be!

    Yes the prices are a bit high at massey's but it's actually decent Indian food. The Buffett does not compare to the dinner service menu items of the exact same name but the food is generally quite good and much better than whatever else the city has to offer for Indian cuisine. Maybe they have two different chefs working day/evening?

    I never leave massey's disappointed and would easily recommend it to any of my friends or coleagues.

  • Always go for the weekend buffet. Spicy authentic Indian food, only complaint is that there aren't that many options available. Recommended for a great lunch buffet, the beef curry and tandoori chicken are delicious.

  • Order: Beef curry, tandoori chicken, butter chicken, vegetables, samosas, rice

  • The food was terrible! How is this called fine Indian? Please people of London, go down to Gerrard street in Toronto to taste what real Indian food is actually like, also the food will be a fraction of the price (~$7-8 or 9).

    The portions are ABSOLUTELY small and costs around $12-14. I was actually shocked looking at the size! The buffet is flavorless. Do not waste your money here!

  • Order: Chicken and buffet

  • food was average at best...onion bhaji was ok, everything else was terrible. Portions were UNACCEPTABLY small for price. Restaurant made an error and we had to call to correct it (we ordered take out); when we called they were VERY RUDE. Delivery driver was nice; that's the only good thing I can say

  • Order: Chotte Nawab, Butter Chicken, Onion Bhaji, Chicken Madras

  • I been to massey's about 5-6 times now. Every time food getting worse everytime when I go back.

    When I went to massey about two years ago it was above average. Now they cheapping out on the spices and ingredients.

    Service is very bad. Looked like waiters was mad at us for something.

  • Order: samosa, Paneer Laziz, Shahi Paneer and Naan

  • I have been to India enough times and had authentic Indian food. Masseys is just a sad excuse for Indian food in London or any where else.

    If you want bland food which looks like Indian food but does not taste like it, I guess go to Masseys.

    Someone who likes spicy authentic Indian food can't possibly like Masseys or for that matter of fact any Indian food joint in London. Masseys is just the worst of them along with India Spice Express.

    I have been to Masseys more than once thinking that it should be given a second chance for its deplorable food quality but sadly its a sad story.

    Anyways I know a lot of people might try it or like since Masseys is one of the few restaurants in the London area, but I would suggest try Nirvana in Toronto before thinking Masseys is close to being good.

  • Order: Achari Ghost, Butter Chicken, Paneer, Biryani

  • The reason you may see above average ratings here is because Londoners have no clue as what real food quality, flavor, service & atmosphere really is.
    It's really sad as this review could very well be for all of the restaurants in London.

  • Order: buffet

The buffet is alright, but it's the dinner experience that makes Massey's the best indian restaurant in London. I'm certain that even a permanent 2 thumbs downer reviewer - prophecy - wouldn't be able to resist Massey's mullegatauny & Achari Gosht.

  • This was the first visit to the restaurant for everyone in our party. Several folks were confirmed non-Indian food lovers.
    The service was thorough and cheerful. Our wait staff left us a couple of pitchers of ice water per table, brought heated plates prior to the arrival of our food, were helpful sharing information on the regular menu items and supplied servers for the "outside" desserts we brought. (The Indian desserts are *not* listed on the website but are fabulous! Homemade mango ice cream was rich, fruity and not overly sweet.) Onion Bhaji were more delicate than i have seen before and mint and tamarind sauces were perfectly flavoured. Our dinner mate insisted that Cheese Naan was delicious (though to unaccustomed ears it sounded revolting). Garlic and plan naan was delicious. Achari Gosht was incredible. The Tandoor dishes arrived sizzling. Only complaint is that rice must be ordered separately and that there are only two varieties: plain and pea pulao. Mango lassi was perfectly chilled and delicious. CLEARLY homemade mango ice cream, flavoured delicately with cardamom was perfection. We will be back and also took take-out and delivery menus.

  • Order: Onion Bhaji, Vegetable Pakora, Cheese Naan, Naan, Garlic Naan, Mango Lassi, Butter Chicken, Achari Gosht, various Tandoor dishes
