For the curious, the creative and the culturally-minded, Maryland is an especially lively place to live. And, the overwhelming majority of Marylanders express a deep appreciation—and pride—for the presence of art and artists in their communities, with 81% of those surveyed in our recent Statewide Survey of the Arts in Maryland agreeing, “a vibrant arts community makes Maryland a better place to live."

Rajneesh and Shubh Kaushal (Raj Sr. and Mona) built Bollywood Masala up from scratch starting in 2003. Though the name and location of the restaurant has changed a few times, regular diners instantly recognize these authentic North Indian recipes—unmistakable, with unique and traditional dishes made from scratch using fresh ingredients. The extensive menu allows you to explore new flavors and combinations each time you visit, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Mona designs each recipe with care and she feels that spices and other ingredients, like musical notes, should be played in their proper place in the concert. Each is masterfully selected for the quality it contributes to the whole, and when she has mixed them the dining experience goes from mono to stereo. Your taste buds will be dancing!
