It was a very good experience with homely environment and hospitality. Best customer service I ever had. The main difference which I found in butter chicken is that the sauce was not having an artificial color ( otherwise always get that orange color on finger tips). Truly exceptional food and service!!!! Highly recommended!!!

Just been to this restaurant a week ago with few friends after a meeting. Owner/manager was the best in customer service I have come across in any of the Indian restaurants. Food was equally nice. You could taste the freshness in the food. Truely GEM of an Indian Restaurant .

We have been to Garam Masala several times and never felt disappointed. Food is wonderful as always. Being vegetarian, we love their Dal Tadka, Malai Kofta and Baingan Masala. Staff is friendly and nice.
