Unlike some of its Desi brethren in the borough, the food at this Indian spot isn’t special enough to merit the trip from Manhattan or Brooklyn. But Masala’s versions of standards like aloo gobi, vindaloo, and chicken tandoori—not to mention its namesake dish—are solid enough to draw a regular neighborhood crowd. Vegetable samosas are better than average, but lamb curry could be spicier and has too little meat beneath the sauce. Your best bet is to select a range of meat and vegetable dishes to share, and don’t pass up an order of the tasty puffed flatbread, poori.
