Description: Indian cuisine is tastefully unique and incredibly varied. Evolving over many centuries,it reflects staggering diversity of a country whose food encompasses the cooking techniques of many nationalities and cultures. A vast spectrum of flavours is created by the judicious and inventive use of spices resulting in a world renouned and truly delicious cuisine. Perhaps the most elaborate dishes come from the north, which was inherited from the Mughals, who invaded India from Persia in the 16th century. Many Moghali dishes such as pulaos (pilifs) and biryanis (rice, meat and spices creations) are rich and lavish due to the ingredients used. Other Indian specialties include kebabs and tandoori dishes, which are cooked in a special clay pot, called a tandoor. What links a country whose cuisine is varied and diverse from region to region due to its language, culture and climate is a common denominator of Indian hospitality and graciousness. Here at Passage to India, as your host, we are committed to providing you, our guests, with just that and making your dining experience with us a truly memorable and enjoyable one.

After 3 days of eating at the all inclusive hotel, we were ready to try something different. This restaurant was a short walk from the hotel. We ate at the AC part of the restaurant. The food was very good. Service was also excellent. The place was very clean. I really enjoyed eating here.

We went twice for the lunch special - a Thali dish with nan, rice, dhal, tandoori chicken (or veg) and a main dish. We had Goanese chicken which was great. The food was good quality, freshly cooked and very tasty. The food was hot - so many restaurants serve tepid food - and good sized portions. All in all, great... More

Lovely evening but had 3 dishes and 2 drinks and it was about £75. It seemed a lot to us and were from London which is pretty pricey but... More

We got sick of the resort food so walked over here. The service was nice and the place is cute on the rooftop of a building of shops. We ordered two appetizers for lunch: garlic shrimp and tandoori wings. Garlic shrimp was ok but the wings.. my goodness! DELICIOUS! We complained how long the food took, but after we tasted... More

Food is never disappointing, it's like nothing you have ever tasted. Great use of spices, textures and imagination in each dish. Try the mango lassi drink, reall yummy and filling. HOWEVER...AND I HATE TO SAY THIS... staff needs some serious training and/or reevaluation. Could over hear them making snide remarks about each other in very close earshot to the customers.... More
