This a a place to go if you are craving for indian food in cancun. We ate at this place 3 nights in a row and still we were not done with it. It is better than most of the Indian restaurants we go to in USA. This review is strictly for à la carte.

This place was recommended by our Limo driver. But was a total disappointment. The crockery wasn't clean to begin with. No proper vent for the Tandoor Kitchen. Smoke going into the dining room. We ordered Chicken Tikka masala, Fish Tikka, Lamb madras, Daal Makhni Garlic naan and onion Kulcha and fried rice. Naans were good, fried rice was a consolation.... More

I choose this place given the excelent feedback in tripadvisor. But I have tried many indian food and this even the waitress said it is real indian food, our chefs are from India. The place was not that good. It is good, but just that.

Having recently moved to a new location they have expanded the menu which has some great new dishes. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent - both an improvement on the past. I had Jinga Tikka Masala which had a nice zing to it and the shrimp were a good size. The only slight negative - it is... More
