Massalla Lounge – Review by HungryOwlOn September 21, 2019 by HungryOwl
We visited Massalla Lounge on a busy Saturday evening and were warmly welcomed at the door. We had booked and I think that was a good thing.
Unusually for us we ordered a bottle of red wine to accompany the meal – it was ‘just’ a bottle of house red. What we were given was an Italian Merlot which was fruity and a hint of spice. It perfectly accompanied the spicy food we had ordered.
Then menu has many many options for meat eaters, fish eaters and vegetarians.
We chose a sharing platter to start with grilled king prawns, tandoori chicken and seasoned grilled lamb chops, served with salad and onions. The King Prawns were amazing and so easy to remove from their shells, the chicken was moist and the lamb chop divine. This perfectly cooked and seasoned starter had certainly set a very high bar for the rest of the meal.
Main course was Chicken Jalfrazi FattyCat and I had the Seafood Delight. I have a rice intolerance so only had the curries with Naan breads.
The seafood delight (Mild) was packed with King Prawn, shrimps and salmon in a sauce that tasted of the sea and was delicately spiced. It was so filling that unfortunately I only ate 1/4 of my light fluffy naan.
FattyCat said his Chicken Jalfrazi was the best he had ever had. The sauce was thick and the chicken was not over cooked. It looked amazing.
Dessert was Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream, slices of Orange and a pick & mix selection of sweets.
To complete the meal we were given a complimentary Bailey shot.
Throughout our visit the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. They also had a sense of humour.
Everything was just wonderful.
We will certainly be returning.
