Excellent curry in a cool neighborhood

They offer a great selection of curry meals. Prices are quite high but worth the money. Both chicken curry and vegetarian curry where really yummy. If you are in cusco don't miss this place.

This hole-in-the-wall is a haven for Indian food lovers. I quite enjoy their Chicken Tikka Masala with a portion of Na'an bread. For a creative dessert, enjoy the coconut/raisin na'an bread. This place is delicious...

We had some samosas to start followed by the Ceylon curry and the chicken tikka Massala. Maybe not the best every curry's we have had but probably the best in Latin America. It certainly satisfies Curry cravings.

We ate at this curry house twice (pre and post trek) and enjoyed it immensely, probably more so than any other restaurant in Peru. We are both curry fiends and having been travelling for a long time we were both really missing a taste of home and it didn't disappoint. The menu was simple and locally inspired, including alpaca and... More

Had the lamb Rogan Josh and it was tender and delicious. The naan wasn't quite what traditional naan is like but still good. It's not on a backpackers budget but well worth the splurge when you've had enough of the menu del dia

Best food I've had in Peru so far, and I've traveled here relatively extensively (over a couple of months). If you like Indian, you'll love this restaurant. It's a bit dark inside so maybe better for evening dining, but whatever. I had curried alpaca and it was phenomenal. The price for a hefty plate of food plus a small beer... More

This restaurant serves Indian food, and Indian-Peruvian fusion The food was very flavorful. We ordered the karma korma (a creamy vegetarian dish), the lamb rogan josh (spelling?) and some naan. Everything was delicious. The restaurant is a bit pricey by peruvian standards, but reasonable. Most main dishes are $9 USD to $14 USD and the entrees are around $5 USd.

We ate here after receiving a recommendation from other travelers and it was a welcome relief from the many steak/chips or pizza/pasta places in South America. The alpaca with mango & chilli was outstanding - a perfectly cooked alpaca loin with delicious flavours. The naan, samosas and pisco sours were also tasty. The service was excellent (their great English made... More

Had heard good things about this restaurant and it didn't disappoint! Really good Indian food with reasonable prices. Good service too- attentive and pleasant. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice curry in a pleasant atmosphere.
