Only the best things to say about Kamini and her kitchen!!

Kamini is a wonderful human being whose food is as fun and enjoyable as her personality and wisdom. Being able to spend time with her at her home was one of our very favorite things we did on the island! After reading the wonderful reviews of her cooking, we messaged Kamini on Facebook to ask if we... read more

What an amazing evening. We thoroughly enjoyed Kamini and her cooking. My daughter and son-in-law had curry grouper and I had the curry goat. Kamini also served us a flavorful chicken soup and made a soup without chicken for my daughter. The Trinidadian spices she used are delicious. Kamini is so personable and we loved hearing about her and her... More

We have known Kamini for years and were some of her first customers at Costa Ariba. From there we have become good friends with family visits. This all came about because of Kamini's hospitality and love for cooking. Her use of authentic ingredients and spices leave me amazed. Please contact her for a private dinner if you are on the...

My experience eating at Kamini's home is similar to what other reviewers have stated. My wife and I met her at the police station in San Nicolas after arranging a time through email. She made for us chicken soup, curried goat, fish and roti. It was one of the best meals I've had during my stay in Aruba. I'm far... More

We recently visited Kamini's Kitchen while in town for a wedding. The trip was a little far, but worth going to extra distance to have a meal without the tourist crowds. Though I suppose the time of year we were visiting Aruba wasn't at peak so most restaurants weren't overly crowded anyway. Some friends of ours also in town for... More

We dined at Kamini's during our stay in Aruba. Kamini is very friendly and outgoing and made us feel like family while dining at her home. We enjoyed the chicken soup to start the meal then had the goat and grouper entrees. Comfort food at it's finest served in a relaxed setting. We enjoyed our conversation with Kamini and wish...

Where to start? Super friendly. GREAT food. Laid back atmosphere makes you want to stay. I had 2 rotis - Goat and the chicken. I love roti and eat it whenever I can and can say quite honestly that this is the best I've had in all the islands. The dishes were well seasoned and by using fresh herbs it... More
