Waterfront location to open soon!! - 'Too much is so good, you can't stop eating it. The tandoor-baked breads are not mere swabs for sauce but could be eaten, and enjoyed, on their own; the naan with cilantro and rock salt is terrific, as is the kulcha richly stuffed with minced lamb. Masala Art offers combinations you don't see often around here, but even its more familiar dishes can be revelations. Consider its samosas. They're flakier than a lot of the competition, and their filling of peas, potatoes and sweet raisins tastes fresher, too. A burst of cardamom in every bite helps. In the same vein, soft logs of minced lamb pulse with heat from jalapeno peppers, a shock offset with breezy mint. Pureed spinach is a vibrant green, flecked with corn and rich with garlic...' - WashingtonPost.com, B-Wisconsin Avenue, NW location.

"I dined two of the first three nights that Masala Art was open. Food was terrific and very reasonable. Service, though, clearly suffers from opening weekend jitters. (But everyone was very friendly.) On Friday, once they got busy, we waited 20 minutes for a check, and got it only after running down the manager. On Saturday...oy! We never received our appetizer - a yummy broccoli and peas tiki that I was looking forward to having again. When we placed our second drink order, first it took forever, then one drink came back wrong and the second version of mine was different from the first. Assuming they get the service kinks worked out, this is a nice, comfortable, casual place in a great location with good food and a significant menu."
