Indian Cuisine in Boracay

This is the place to go in Boracay for authentic Indian cuisine. The food is great and the service is top-notch, but the prices are steeper than most comparable establishments. The ambiance is also pleasant, but can get a bit hot during the summer since the place does not have air conditioning. Try... read more

With a beachfront location at Station 2, this is an easy restaurant to find. And what a find! This is Indian food prepared perfectly for the Western palate and equals the best Indian restaurants in my home town of Toronto, Canada. If you love Indian food or want to try it for the first time, this is a great choice.... More

If you're craving for some Indian food, this is the place to be. We ordered onion pakora and veg spring roll and we couldn't stop licking our fingers. It reminded us of the food back home in India. It came with tamarind and mango chutney, we were suprised that we could get such authentic food in Boracay! We also ordered... More

I think most Indian will not claim this to be real indian food. Some diches dont come close. For example their Butter Chicken. It taste more like Tikka Massala then the nice classic that I have eaten worldwide and in India

Family of 5 had lunch upstairs, great ambience and view, attentive service. We had Rohan josh that was nice.. Would've liked some butter chicken but it was unavailable so we had a mild chicken dish for the kids that was bland and uninspiring, the chicken masala was ok. Man bread was well made and raita was good as well. If... More

The kefir chia drink saved my stomach from drinking the night before :) We had great service, meal came on time and yes it is pricey but totally worth it!

The setting is lovely with low tables and comfy cushions. Upstairs has a great view over the beach. There are lots of waiting staff who are very friendly and helpful however that's where the pleasantness ends. We waited nearly an hour for food and when it came it was really average. The vindaloo lacked spice and the madras was greasy... More

This restaurant looked so nice when we passed that we went in and sat upstairs on the pillows, the view from there is amazing! Ordered a mango lassi and some very delicious apetizers, all very good. The bread we had was really yummy. Go there for sunset to enjoy the view!
