(Oddly, there also appears to be another Indian takeaway called Massala at the same address, which is confusing.)
Mogul lamb chops (£2.75 for three) were fine, with decent spicing, though there was no crispy fat on them. Chingri laddoo ("spicy prawn balls", £3 for four) were a little more interesting; small prawns in a crispy gram flour batter with a hint of spicing, quite tasty, and the prawns weren't overcooked.
Moving on to mains, chicken jalfrezi (£5.75) was hot enough for doop but not too hot for Kake - a miracle! doop (our jalfrezi expert) said it was fine but not outstanding. Roshun sabzee (vegetables with garlic, £3 as side dish) was bizarre, like frozen mixed vegetables (peas, sweetcorn, green beans, little cubes of carrot, shrivelled-up mushrooms) just fried for ages - wouldn't order this again. Courgette bhaji (£3 as side dish) and begun bhaji (£3) were a lot better, the courgettes and aubergines cooked just right; a fair bit of oil used in both, but not to excess, so they're not low-fat dishes, but also weren't greasy. Pilau rice (£1.55) was competent without being anything special.
Kake's verdict: If they were closer, I'd certainly give them another go - but I do feel a bit bad dragging the driver all the way from SE13 to SE16!
