Decatur: Masti

Masti is the latest addition to North Druid Hills Mall. It bills itself as Indian street food. To my untrained eyes, this appears to mean quite a bit of south Indian street food with some north Indian favorites thrown in, as well as a few Americanisms (sliders, hot dog buns). The atmosphere is bright and cheerful. Although the restaurant was overcome with Mother's Day madness, my service was unfailingly polite.

I started with a cup of chai. The milk and spices were very soothing.

I ordered the thali, which allowed me to try several different dishes. For dinner, you choose 2 of the 4 dailly specials. I went with paneer tikka masala and chicken korma. The chicken korma was fine but I particularly enjoyed the dal and paneer tikka masala. All the dishes were well spiced but not particularly hot. That is, which the exception of the excellent pickle. It did everything that you want an Indian pickle to do to your mouth, which is to confuse it with a swirl of acid, heat, and exotic flavors. The bread was fresh and quite good.
