This is my favourite restaurant in N.C. Although I agree, service sometimes has been slow, it has everything a restaurant has to have: great food, great variety, extremely affordable, and Khan -- the owner, who is a staple of the place, always smiling and filled with great energy.
I love the buffet, which has great vegetarian variety, amazing butter chicken and absolutely the best tandouri chicken I've ever had, and I've tried many! I am extremely picky when it comes to eating out, and especially with Indian food, and Msala tops it!
My husband and I love to go out for dinner as well and eat the dishes outside the buffet like the lamb and okra. The lamb is outstanding!
Don't forget to try the rice pudding and chai tea.

I took my children here to introduce them to some different cuisine. I love Indian food and am armed with a little knowledge of the flavors to expect. The nan was good. I paid $40 for nan, because the rest of the food was poor, poor quality. We ordered the sampler entree which was $18. It was served on a "Celebrate the Year 2000" plate and was an old, dry assortment of meat that should have been trash-bound but ended up served to my son. It was inedible and we all ended up sharing the other entree which was chunks of chicken in a sweet savory sauce that kind of tasted like apple pie(?). This was a $13 entree and the presentation and portion were sad at best. After being ignored by the waitress for 10 minutes when we arrived, I should have left, but I didn't and am sorry I didn't. There is a Jersey Mike's next to it and I had to go and buy my son a second dinner from there.

I've been here several times during the weekday lunch buffet and weekday dinner. I do agree with the other reviewer that the service is slow. But, the buffet food I've had has always been tasty, better than what you find at other Indian buffets in the Triad. The naan is good here, though sometimes they rush it a bit since it's a very popular item. The food at dinner is much, much better. The naan is very, very good - light and fluffy, not biscuity like some other Indian restaurants.

My husband says our visit to this restaurant was a unique experience, unique because it will never happen again. We went for lunch and stood at the front of the restaurant for over 5 minutes waiting to be seated. There was a man talking loudly on a cell phone at one of the tables facing us and a group eating at another table. A lady came out of the back twice, walked around and went back to the back, completely ignoring us. We even questioned quietly whether we should just sit down or not but there was a sign that asked you to wait to be seated, so we did. Finally, the guy on the phone gestured for us to sit down and he did it quite gruffly, like we were bothering him. Then, the lady came back, waved at the buffet table, didn't ask if we wanted a menu, or drinks, didn't speak at all. We called out a drink order and went to the buffet. The food had a good taste but it wasn't hot at all. There wasn't a price listed anywhere we could see and nobody said a word to us. The guy on the phone got back on the phone and proceeded to bless out an employee who forgot an apron the previous day. Now, I'm sitting there thinking customer service would probably be a better thing to talk to his employees about because we weren't seeing any of it at all. My husband was furious and I was just trying to keep his temper in check so he wouldn't have a rotten afternoon at work after lunch. When we chased the lady down and asked for a check and she finally brought it, this lunch buffet that had very little to choose from and was lukewarm cost over $8 a piece. Not worth it. Don 't bother, unless you like to pay to be treated badly.
