Delicious Indian cuisine in a romantic setting on the lagoon.

We have been to the adjacent Thai restaurant a number of times and decided to opt for Indian food one night. The Chicken Tikka Masala was very good - a lot of gravy but the chicken was excellent. Also enjoyed a lentil slow cooked dish (dal) that was very tasty. Service is polished and attentive... read more

We (four adults, one generally well-behaved 3 year old) ate here March 21, 2015 and it was the best meal we had during our two-week stay in Cancun. The restaurant sits along the edge of the lagoon and tables are available outdoor as well as inside. The waiters were attentive without being intrusive, water glasses filled, dropped utensils replaced without... More

By far this has been the best indian food that we had in NA. The ambience was amazing with privacy and the beautiful view of the bay. Go for the tandoori. It's authentic north indian with chefs from punjab degrading and new delhi.

Vegetarian meals abound on the menu. The romantic setting with sunset on the Laguna adds to the Oriental pleasures. Lentil dish full of flavours which make it like the famed Mexican black beans for my breakfast.

Being Indian I pride myself on knowing what authentic Indian food should taste like. I am very very picky because most Indian places do not offer that authentic taste to accommodate non Indians. However this place was fantastic!! taste was on point and to die for. Surprisingly all the way out in Cancun ! Delicious !! Thank you for the... More
