Best Indian Restaurant in Cancun...if not all of Mexico

This is by far one of the best Indian restaurants we've eaten at ... anywhere! Magical atmosphere on the lagoon and amazing food. The Tandoori lamb and chicken were so tender, and the seasoning was fantastic. Minced lamb samosas and curry with potatoes and paneer were so good we ordered a second... read more

Food was excellent from appetizer to the main course. We all enjoyed the food so much that we ordered the Daal twice. we all are native Indian ,living in USA and it is really hard to please us with good Indian food. This time we all were very happy with the food, service and quantity. Kishan Singh Negi: you have... More

We were here for dinner on a Friday evening in Feb. The place was not very crowded and we had no problem getting a decent hut by the lagoon. The ambiance was very good. We were a group of 6, yet our food came out quite quick. The food was out of this world. So, all 6 of us live... More

We decided to try the chef special which gave us a variety of four items. It was a large enough order that we split it. We started with the black lentil soup which is... More

Beautiful stunning setting on Cancun lagoon, especially at sunset. Food was OK but perhaps too spicy for my tastes. Indian bread was delicious.

Traveling with 5 girlfriends and we enjoyed a meal for our last night out at Elephanta at the La Isla shopping center in Cancun. The food was very good, however, had a little more heat than you'd expect of typical similar Indian fare (at least where I'm from with a very large selection of Indian restaurants in SF Bay Area)....

Being of Indian descent, I always try to eat at an Indian restaurant when I travel. There are always a few but sometimes you happen upon a gem and this was one! Food - Amazing. A little on the spicy side but not burning your mouth off or anything. The 2 adults loved it but the picky tween thought it... More

Classy, unique, good food. Want to try the adjoining Thai restaurant next time. Couldn't be nicer. Built over the lagoon. Great for a romantic evening.

Delicious food. There were 4 of us and everyone raved about their meals. The restaurant is in the big shopping mall called La Isla, so it is easy to get to from the hotel zone. It is a lovely setting. right on the water's edge of the lagoon. I highly recommend this place for food and ambiance.
