Metamorphosis of Royal Thai to Mama Masala

I’m so excited and sad all at the same time!!! Sad because my favourite Thai restaurant in NI has close…worry not as takeaway still operational!! Very flag because one of my all time favourite Indian Italian Fusion restaurant is opening in Glengormley….Mama Masala.

The two owners have been very successful in Londonderry with their award winning Mama Masala overlooking the river. I have been and eaten Italian and Indian food there and must say it was exceedingly and extremely good!!

When the lads took over they had to and are basically rebuilding from top to bottom, right to left and back to front as the below pictures show. 

The grand opening is slated for June/July….will keep you all posted…..
