Nice place to chill and unwind. Food can be pricey for a budget traveler, but can be your one big splurge.

Located along Station 2 near D'Mall where most restaurants and bars are. Nice place with a relaxing ambience to have lunch or dinner by the beach. Good interiors, delicious food. Try their chicken masala and vegetable samosas and finish it with chai or yogurt drink.

The place alone is a great escape. Sitting on huge pillows with a great view on White Beach, I always enjoy their great menu with a Chai Tea. The service is great.

We were truly delighted to come across an Indian restaurant on the beach in Boracay. The seating, although a little strange was ok, place wasn't too busy, I don't think I'd have been comfortable if the place was busier. I've never been to an Indian where chicken is served on the bone, and with the spicy sauces, it's hard to... More

The aroma will draw you in from the beach. This place was tell-tale busy (a good sign) and friendly. True to name, the food was authentic and delicious. Reasonable prices too. The only drawback for me was floor seating, which I don't do, and the only option was a wobbly table in the entrance way. Forgiven! I would recommend this... More

This was the worst meal we have had on this 6 week trip and pricey, oh my god - you would be cheaper in NY City! Biryani consists of a bowl of super spicy rice, no vegetables with a boiled chicken wing and a drumstick! Naan was the only eatable thing! I mentioned politely to advise the chef the food... More

Really enjoyed this place, if you like good hot indian food you will love this. Plenty of options in all ranges. Lots of vegetarian options as well!

Being from Birmingham (U.K.) I love Indian food, but since living and working in Asia I haven't really had a nice Indian meal (apart from Sri Lanka). The restaurant has a very nice vibe and decor. You can sit on the floor cushions with low tables, or they do have a normal table and chair option if you wish. Being... More

This is our favorite resto on Boracay! Delicious India fare served in a relaxing atmosphere where you recline on the floor around small tables with huge pillows. You have to try the Mango Lassi.... with Boracay's fresh mangoes it is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
