Last night I was lucky enough to attend the opening of the new branch of Masala Zone Indian restuarant in Bayswater. The food was of course delicious and authentic; a mixture of dipping street foods like Bahjis and Puttu and cuisine such as warm Biryani. The main reason I was there though, was to check out the quirky interiors style that this branch has chosen for the walls. man1

Ranjit Mathrani the chairman of the company explained how each Masala Zone features different aspects of Indian art and culture. Branches in Camden, Islington or Kensington for example have walls adorned with traditional artwork, Bollywood styles or famous imagery. The new Masala Zone in Bayswater is my favourite style of Indian culture; plastered all over the walls are blown up versions of the tiny kitsch artwork found on firecrackers!hhh

Much of the artwork  text is in English and features a mixture of Eastern and Western influence. Beautiful!


The modern lampshades were less kitsch but the way they were displayed was clustered and unique.

Even the chairs had an intersting touch – the seats were made from criss crossed seatbelts, which were a little too comfortable!
