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!!!

Masala Bites continue to be the stand-out Indian restaurant in VA Beach and there really isn't anyone even close. If you're tired of generic Indian buffets and love authentic, amazing Indian food, make Masala your next meal!

This is a place we frequent and the food is ALWAYS outstanding and the service wonderful. Don't let the outside fool you, this is a quality choice. Entrees are a little pricey but worth it for the portion sizes. Also, if you are afraid of Indian cuisine due to its heat, don't be. They let you choose the level of spiciness that best suits your palate. Try it soon...you won't be disappointed.

Being lovers of Indian food, we went out of our way to visit this restaurant. Our experience was that it did not live up to the raves. First the good - the poppadums were homemade and the carrot chutney also homemade, both excellent. One of the poppadums was burned, though, and should never have been brought to the table. The lamb was very nice; the korma, which is a delicately flavored dish, was awful. It was so over spiced with pepper all the delicate korma flavors were lost. When we ordered dessert, kulfi, which was excellent, the waiter whisked away our dirty plates but left us sitting at a table with spilled raita, rice, bits of poppadum, etc. We tried to signal him multiple times to ask him to wipe it, but he seemed oblivious. Finally my husband, disgusted, wiped it off himself. We waited and waited for our kulfi, which after all is ice cream and just needs to be put on a plate and served. We asked the waiter to check on it, and he said in an annoyed voice, "It's coming, it's coming." Since we left angry and will never return, I'm wondering if it even deserves the "poor" rating I gave it.
