Our Story

Since our modest beginnings in 2020 our little Indian takeout from Irvine's virtual kitchen, Maast Indian’s development has been enlivened with the energy to cook and serve a creative fusion menu, with dine in and patio seating options.

In contrast to other Indian eateries, ‘Maast Indian is made with the explicit expectation to appear as something else.

The adaptable menu flaunts some imaginative food, along with our traditional menu of curry bowls served with rice and paratha we boast of a very creative Indian Mexican fusion menu serving burritos inspired from Indian street food kathi rolls, frankie or wraps. Filled with biryani style rice, choice of proteins and our amazing sauces.

Our award winning sandwiches are to die for. They are perfect pick me up meal and inspired from mumbai sandwiches.

Parathadilla, our very own family innovation,Flaky layered Indian flatbread (paratha) stuffed with our signature in-house sauces with a choice of protein. These handcrafted pair of street Indian tacos have been our show stopper.

Our Head Chef and Owner Karna Patel has crafted these recipes intricately with a lot of passion in our Creative Kitchen with his Mother and Founder of Maast Indian Rita Patel brining in traditional flavours to the menu. Karna favourite item on the menu is the Cauliflower 65 Burrito. and Rita’s favourite is channa masala or Chole curry bowl and chole samosa chaat.

Maast Indian is located on the busy crossroads of Alton Parkway and Technology drive in Irvine’s Alton Retail Center. Our eatery is a very welcoming scene from our Co-Founder Kshama Patel memory of an Indian phool bazar (flower market) where you stroll thorough baskets of flowers and try some of the Indian street food. The walls are decked with hand carved mandal murals to bring a calm and relaxed feeling to the hectic lunch crowds that line up. The design of the space resonates the ethos it reflects in the words inscribed in chalk “Together is a beautiful place to be”.
Our warm customer service and comforting menu will leave you happy for the rest of the day. Kshama’s favorite is the Aloo bhujiya Parathadilla, Dal makhani and saag curry bowls. While Nitin Patel's favorite is spinach chicken sandwich with a side of smothered fries with tandoori chicken.

Come check out our creative menu packed with flavors served by a family who loves to entertain and will make you feel at home.
