Fabulous authentic Indian food

Nice views of Boracay's surrounding from the rooftop restaurant. If recalled correctly, it should be run by a spanish boss. Really enjoyed the tasty Indian food and cocktails --> weird combi isn't it? :O

Firsts time we visited this place was in April 2013 and at that time we NOT happy about the food. It changed! Steve, the owner, did it. The food is delicious, the staff more than normal service mined, and yes if you don't like an expat bar don't come. But you will miss beautiful and very well done food especially... More

My partner and I decided to visit Crafty's after reading some good reviews about their Indian menu. The menu was extensive with a good variety so we decided to have a feast. We had Onion Bahjis and Lamb Colcha as appetisers and they were delicious, especially the Colcha which we had never tried before. The portions were large enough that... More

We have eaten here a few times now and the Indian food is always great, the nan breads are cooked in a tandori oven so are amazingly fresh and tasty. Huge menu and great drinks to go with it. If you want to eat indian food on Boracay then look no further As an added footnote, the English breakfast is... More

Greetings from boracay, a place where really good food is sometimes sparse. Crafty's roof top bar has solid Indian food. I have now eaten there three times, a figure that will most certainly grow as we still have almost two weeks left here. My first visit wasn't that special. I took the safe bet and ordered butter chicken, one of... More

Crafty's became our ' local' while we were in Boracay, not only for the great food but also the atmosphere and company. The Indian is delicious, really tasty and spicy and plenty of it.We very much enjoyed just sitting at the bar chatting to the wonderful barman Norman, other tourists and expats. Norman is an absolute asset to the place,... More

Indian food is cooked authentically. Delicious and flavorsome. Cocktails were cheap and really good. Be sure not to drink too many as you need to walk down four flights of stairs to get out lol Be sure to go after 6pm as the tandoori is cooked by then after cooking all day and Naan bread is then available. We went... More

I am always on the lookout for good authentic Indian food so I checked the highest rated Indian restaurant in tripadvisor at boracay to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The flavors were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and I couldn't get over it. Way better than the ones in Manila and even India. Ordered the Panir and the lamb biryani and... More
