This spot used to be so popular in the 90s. Change in management has made service extremely slow. I've come here a few times and even if the restaurant wasn't half full, the dishes would take about 45 minutes to an hour to serve. It's disappointing because the food is quite good and it's prime beachfront setting is ideal.

My partner and I loved the atmosphere and interior of the upstairs of true food, we came here once for food and again just for drinks. Food was nice but average and not as flavourful as expected but you can't beat watching the hum of busy white beach from your own gold cushion :)

4 stars just for the food, cos it was AWESOME! Service was bad & slow, though we ate earlier than the rush hour dinner time. They need to speed up, be more attentive and not make mistakes when serving food.

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!
