This Masala Zone in Bayswater - one of ten London restaurants from a reliable group - is a solid example of why this brand remains so popular. Expect a winning combination of affordable, authentic Indian food, good-looking surroundings and cheery service.

That authenticity keeps the menu away from curry house staples - so no chicken tikka masala, say. Instead, expect thalis, an array of birianis and an interesting selection of street food dishes, ranging from samosas and sev puri (whole wheat biscuits filled with spiced mash and three chutneys) to alloo tikki chaat, chana dabalroti and shikampuri kebabs. 

Lunch offers and special deals at other times keep prices even more keen.

A very enjoyable and tasty meal. Service was very good, kitchen in full view so you can see exactly what is going on, which I like. The curries were nicely flavoured and filling. Very good value for money.

Seated very quickly despite long queues when we first arrived. Our waiter was lovely, he explained all the dishes patiently and gave guidance as appropriate. We had 3 Grand Thalis, 1 lamb chops plus 2 large starters to share between 4 people. The food was served very promptly and everything was delicious. We were stuffed and left feeling very happy. Total bill including beer and soft drinks came to £90. Excellent value for money especially in Central London.

A solid 4* for Masala Zone. The place itself is decorated nicely, light and open, plenty of space between tables and has a small open kitchen.

The menu isn't huge but has the awesome Thali along with a choice of 8ish curries, some sharing starters and biryanis.
My friend and I both went for a Thali, which for £14 max includes a 4oz curry, 2 vegetable sides, a lentil side, 2 chapatis or rice, a popadom and chutneys. I love Thalis! It means you get to try lots of different dishes but without ordering crazy amounts of food. The lamb rogan josh was good (spicy, full of flavour), the potato curry was ok but my favourite was the broccoli curry which was delicious! The lentil curry was a bit watery and bland and the chapatis a little cold but everything else was piping hot and all the food was good except the chapatis. 
What made it a lovely meal out apaaaart from the feast of delicious food was the service. The waitress was so friendly, happy and attentive (continually filling up my water - I'm not so good with spice!). 
You are able to reserve tables which in this day and age in central London is a miracle and they also do takeaway - pick up or delivery through some of the apps. This is also a bit cheaper than the eat in menu along with no tip! I've been looking for a good Indian takeaway in my area for so long and now I've found it - gone are the days of watery or oily Friday night 'curries'!
