This is the best Indian food on the island. I am crazy about the curry shrimp and my husband loves the chicken tikka masala. The garlic naan is awesome and the raita is perfect. One of my favorite restaurants on the island. Great service! We eat here at least once a month. Super yummy!

We decided to check this place out based on all the high ratings here on TripAdvisor. We are Indian and know good Indian food. This place is average at best, and that's being generous. We tried the Hot & Sour soup, it was extremely spicy with an overdose of black pepper. Our entrees were Dal Tadka and Chicken Tikka masala.... More

I had noticed this Restaurant on a previous visit to Aruba but did not get a chance to dine in. This time when my friend suggested we dine in the Restaurant, I was definitely in. This place had a cool temperature just as we entered with smiling servers and welcome. The menu was exhaustive and they had a huge number... More

Fresh and tasty. We went there twice as we liked the food very much. I would recommend sizzler kind of food there, it was so yum!

It might be odd to eat Indian/Pakistani cuisine in Aruba - but if you do - THIS is the place to go. Less expensive than the other tourist friendly Indian restaurants on the island and MUCH better quality. Try the Daal Tarka

Loved it, just make sure if you can't handle super hot, too let them know. I eat Indian all the time but a novice would think it was hot.
