While there are other places to eat this has to be one of the best overall. Spices were perfect and service was super. Have to make it back next time on Tamborine Mountain.

We didn't have a booking and inside was fully booked out, we braved an outside table in teh cold and was really glad we did as the food was amazing. Even had left overs to take home and a curry on the second day is always a winner in our house. The staff were also wonderful. We will go back... More

We loved this place. The food was fantastic and to find almost everything was gluten free was a treat for me. The choices were outstanding. The dessert was amazing. We had excellent service and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Tamborine Mountain.

Loved the service and the food was very tasty. We nearly missed out as it was pretty fully booked tonight. Definitely worth checking out.

My girlfriend and I had dinner here and were very impressed, what a beautiful spot to dine. A wonderful choice of authentic Indian food at a reasonable price. The meals tasted amazing and the service was really good. Would definitely recommend this place and I will be sure to return to try other things of the menu.

Masala Shanti is on the main gallery walk as you drive into Tamborine Mountain. It is an excellent restaurant to take friends to experience something a little different. Meals are great and the atmosphere is a genuine Indian feeling with menu to match. Not cheap but not outrageously priced either. Good experience, good service and really good food.

Take-away menu was great - enjoyed the lamb korma cooked to our liking - medium which was very flavoursome. Lovely warm garlic Naan Bread - yummy! Attentive and efficient staff.
