Very Good Indian/Panamanian Fusion

Delicious Indian/Panamanian Fusion. Tasty curries, lamb kebabs and yogurt. Take in the street night life of Bocas Del Toro from the balcony dining.

We passed by on our way to another restaurant, it smelled really good. Our intended spot was booked so we came back here and it was amazing! We got the booth, which was super comfy. We ordered samosas, pappadums, butter chicken and steak. It was more than we had hoped for. Everything was perfect portion and flavor, we will definitely... More

A great place to have dinner right in the center of Bocas Town. The place was really crowded in the evening but had a nice atmosphere and feel to it. I really recommend trying if you like indian food. Also try the delicious lassi!

On Jan 05, 2016 we had dinner at this restaurant. The atmosphere was great they had a live band playing and the food was fantastic. I am personally not a connoisseur of Indian food but my friends are and what they recommended was excellent A must if you like Indian food

That you could get excellent East Indian food in a little seaside town in Panama? This is a fun little second-floor cafe overlooking the main street in Bocas: a great place for people-watching while you eat. We had the Malabar fish curry which was absolutely delicious, and the Chicken Korma, which was tasty, but not as spectacular as the fish.... More

Towards the end of main strip in Bocas. Really great Indian food with great atmosphere. It is on the second floor with great balcony seating.

Love the food they use amazing spices and are very friendly! The ambiance is very nice as well in the restaurant! My absolute favorite is the vegan dish and also the chai tea is amazing made with spices not full of sugar! Highly recommend it

The food in here is pretty expensive but we love a curry so thought we'd splash out. Unfortunately it wasn't worth it - we ordered two chicken dishes and both were flavourless. It's as if the chicken was just thrown in at the end. The naan was pretty terrible too. In fact the best thing was the (very) tiny dish... More
