Great food & wonderful ambience. Service was great. The spicy shrimp appetizer goes well with any dinner. The chicken tika was great. Highly recommend!

I have wanted to visit for a long time, but it is not close to where I live. I finally went, and cannot wait to return. The food was fresh, the service great, the atmosphere very nice for family or date. I might have ordered the wrong this, and look forward to trying something different.

I encountered an issue at this restaurant with my chicken being raw. I showed my server the completely pink chicken and it was almost as if it was an annoyance. My husband ate his entire meal while I sat and waited for mine to be re-made. I eventually just took bites of his and asked for mine to be packaged up to go. No apology, no discount on the meal that was unsatisfactory...nothing. It was a disappointment. The leftovers tasted good the next day but I probably won't return due to the poor service provided.

I ❤️ this place! Excellent food, quiet environment, helpful servers. I like spicy food, but need to dial it down a bit here. Be careful! I’m not a big lamb lover but the lamb/chicken/salmon trio appetizer is absolutely delicious. Lamb is perfectly seasoned. Can’t wait 2 go back.

My favorite Indian restaurant on the south side of Virginia Beach. Food is wonderful, service is always very good, and it’s never difficult to get a table. Quiet, relaxing dining room with a cozy booths.

Upscale ambience, although based on its location in a large shopping in VB, there will be plenty of “under-dressed” folks if that matters for your date night or special occasion.

This was our first visit to Masala Bites and we absolutely love everything about this place. We ordered the prix fixe brunch menu which gave us the perfect opportunity to sample a nice variety of items from starters, to entrées and desserts. The service was wonderful. Our server was very helpful and accommodating. He assisted us in determining our preferred level of spiciness. Suffice it to say, we loved the food, ambience and service. We cannot wait to return.

I have not been to an Indian food restaurant in over 20 years. At the request of a friend I made a reservation for dinner. I was so glad that I did. The food and the atmosphere was incredible. We tried several appetizers and split a main course. There was more than enough food to satisfy a hardy appetite. I have truly discovered a new love for Indian cuisine. I will definitely not be 20 years before I eat there again. The staff were very friendly and ensured all our our needs were met. The price was definitely reasonable for the amount of food we ate. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great evening and awesome food.

Very disappointed!! We had dined there two previous times, which were quite impressive experiences. However, this time was as if there was a new owner. It was completely tasteless tandoori! Had to tear off the bone. In addition, we were the only ones there at the start and all of the staff was talking behind bar rather than taking our drink order. As Chesapeake residents, we have decided never to make the trip back to Masala Bites!!!
