When I was... More

The place is pretty awesome. We were seated in a bungalow with a great view of the lagoon. We saw a huge crocodile swimming 3 meters away from our table. The service is pretty good, as it is anywhere in Mexico. I was not impressed by the food. It was nicely presented but I've had better Indian food. I would... More

Me and the wife came here for a romantic meal a couple of weeks ago. As we travel round the world a bit we always try indian restaurants wherever we go. On first impressions the decor of this place is great. And we sat next to the lagoon. For starters my wife had prawns and I had the chicken tikka... More

this a very nice place, the indian food is great, the tandori oven is great and works really good, based on the food served the price is a little too high for the size of the servings, but it is good food and the view next to the lagoon is fantastic.

Went here after recommendation from a friend and def worth a visit. Travelling with 2 vegetarian Indians and the food was definately great / service very good / the setting of the restaurant on a stunning lagoon. The dishes come in really decent portions so you can order quite a few things to share! Really good value for money too.
