Cuisine: Indian
Price Point: Mains from £10-£20

This is the sort of neighbourhood Indian you wish you had at the end of your street…

The newest addition to Cardiff’s Indian dining scene is relaxed, informal and friendly, yet the attentiveness of the service wouldn’t look out of place in a fine dining restaurant.

The food is inspired by India’s many street cafes. Think authentic Mumbai tawa biryanis, thalis, fragrant prawn curries and khati rolls bursting with fresh herbs and tangy chutneys.

While all your Indian favourites are available, lesser known dishes such as crispy prawn koliwada and Bombay aloo wada (mashed potato balls with spices) will take you on a delicious journey all the way from Northern India to Southern Goa.

A selection of nine beers is just the thing to cool your palate after the fiery chicken chatpata, or opt for a glass from the good value wine list.

My family and I really enjoyed our meal at Masala bag. Staff were really attentive, service was fast and food was tasty and presented well. We bought a mixed non veg thali, chicken thali, lamb biriyani and a masala dosa.
Overall a brilliant experience and we will return.

Firstly the time of the first table is 7:30, the latest in Cardiff, which for us was great because we felt like we were in the busy period so atmosphere was good.
The menu comprises of Indian street food and we both had a thali each. The lamb was really tender which is always paramount in a curry in my opinion and the seafood was good - prawns were massive. Personally it could have been more spicy but I’m sure if you asked for that they would do it!
We will be returning to have a selection of street food dishes.

We had a lovely time in Masala Bag, from the moment we walked in. We received a very warm welcome and service with a smile from both the waitress and the manager.
The young lady was very helpful and knowledgeable explaining each of the dishes in detail.
We had three different Thali meals a fish, a chicken and a vegetarian, each consisting of a starter, three curries a side dish, rice, roti, lime pickle and Yogurt. Then finished off with a delicious traditional Indian sweet.
Booking through table made this excellent value for money but we will definitely be returning and happy to pay the full price.
This new restaurant is a real gem on the block and a rising star amongst the Indian restaurants in Cardiff.. A must for connoisseurs of good food.

Can't recommend Masala Bag enough! I've been before and everything I've tried on the menu has been incredible. I'd particularly recommend the 'small plates' like chicken dosa (which really aren't that small) and the naan breads (best I've ever tasted).

First rate dosas and then a couple of excellent thali plates. It was a speedy visit but just what we wanted and all served with a lovely smile

I had the Tawa Lamb to start and my oh had Gosht Karak Sheek and both really enjoyed it. Mains were chicken tikka and lamb kadhai with pialu rice, the chips were French fries which although nice didn't compliment the curry and the karma naan was lovely but thin. Looking forward to going again and trying the wraps.Well worth a visit

What a fab little restaurant. The owner told us it's only been open a month! Food was fantastic - lots of Indian street food we hadn't tried before, or seen elsewhere. The food is really reasonably priced, even without the First Table offer. Ate too much and wanted to have a little cry when we couldn't fit in dessert. Highly recommend the chicken dosa under 'small plates' (side note: it's not that small!), also the garlic naan which proved to be my undoing.

The meal was great, my starter of tandoori chicken was probably one of the best I've eaten, but quite spicy, so beware.
The rest of the meal was equally as good, the service was good. We will be back
