Garam Masala is a wonderful aromatic blend of spices from India and Pakistan. Garam means "hot" or "heating" and masala means "spice blend". The "hot" is not necessarilly referring to the kind of heat found in hot chillies but to the fact the the spices are roasted then ground. Another Moreexplanation we've heard is that the amalgamated of the spices in garam masala increases body temperature, a pleasant warm glow you might feel after eating a dish savored with it. It does however usually include some black pepper and cinnamon or cassia which carry some heat. Almost all Indian and restaurants offer "Americanized Indian and Pakistani food" in "ethnic Indian ambience" at exorbitant prices. The concept behind Garam Masala restaurant is to offer home style cooking taste in affordable price.

  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"by Charity S. at Yelp User Review3/19/2014The food is good, if maybe a little overpriced. However, they are open until 10:30pm on weekdays and they deliver quickly! Definitely not my first choice, but certainly not bad. I like the coconut curry in particular. More
  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"by Lismea I. at Yelp User Review3/2/2014I ordered Chicken Boti Breast & Coconut Chicken. I LOVED both of these dishes! Really great spices and the chicken in both dishes was very tender. I ordered for delivery and was very pleased with both the food upon arrival and the delivery person was very friendly. I would definitely recommend Garam Masala and I'm looking forward to the next time I order this fabulousness! More
