“Unbelievable Indian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We are huge fans of this fabulous restaurant! The owners are friendly and will help you order if you, like us, are new to Indian food. The location is great for us (near Playacar) and so we stopped in by chance over a year ago. We simply can't visit Playa without at least one meal at Curry Omm.

“Excellent authentic Indian food, friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal here. The owners are extremely friendly and made us feel like regulars right away. As full time residents of the area, we know that finding authentic tasting ethnic restaurants here is very tough. Normally even the Chinese food somehow tastes Mexican! But Harish manages to create 'real' Indian food. When I commented on the authenticity of his food (I grew in Britain and lived in a Hindi community for a while, so it's been a while but I do know good Indian food) Harish told me he will only use authentic spices, searching across Mexico and even to Belize and Venezuela for his supplies.
Of course it is not going to compare to the "really good Indian restaurants in Europe" mentioned in another review. But neither does any Indian restaurant I ate in while I lived in Texas and this IS the ONLY Indian restaurant in this area. You're in Mexico, be realistic in your expectations!

“Indien food mexican style?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

OK restaurant but the food didn't taste real. I guess it's hard to import good stuff from India to Mexico. This felt like a mixture of mexican ingrediens trying to taste indian. Maybe you can call it Indian food Mexican style. I am used to really good Indian restaurants in Europe and they are very different to this place. I'm not going back but go there if you feel like it. It's not that bad.

“Great food, great owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food in Curry Omm is just outstanding. It's freshly prepared. One of us is a fructose intolerant vegeterian (not an easy combination!) and the owner vas extremely helpful to assemble a suitable meal. We already made a reservation for our next visit.
