An award-winning restaurant which uses traditional spices from the Sub-continent

Since 1995, Cafe Masala has worked tirelessly in bringing the finest Sub-continental cuisine to Thorpe bay using Persian, Balkan and Far-Eastern techniques to form the perfect British curry.

Indian cuisine has truly established its name here in the U.K. Spices and herbs have travelled through mountains and jungles to cities and towns to coastal regions in Europe to be cooked in exceptional dishes and enjoyed by the finest clientele here in Thorpe bay.

CM's unique touch is blending North-Indian Mughal recipes with contemporary influences. Sourcing fresh product is key to us and we would have it no other way.

With a sensual lowkey interior design, the air of exclusivity is blatant and to us brand is everything. CM welcomes you with open arms.
