“Good food at a high price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking for Indian food and aren't on a backpackers budget then this place is for you. The food is good but the prices are high. $15-20 US for entrees

“good food, accommodating owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

We came by the restaurant mid-afternoon on a Sunday, about two hours before the sign in front said they would be open, but the owners were there having their own meal and they very graciously invited us in. We had lamb and spinach and chicken in a curry and honey sauce, and they were both quite good, lamb a little chewy perhaps, but all in all a place we would go back to. Ambiance average, no view, but service was friendly and good.

“Make the effort to visit - nothing short of fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

I visited with Indian colleagues and we were blown away. The restaurant is basic - like everyplace in Belize City - but the food is heavenly. The menu is the broadest and most authentic I have found in the Caribbean and even in Western USA. My colleagues were as amazed as I was by the quality and authentic flavors, we flew back and forward from San Pedro just for dinner one night - a big complement from a Indian restaurant owner from New York City!

This is the best restaurant in town, they will do a curry every way you like it from westernized wishywashy to pure Tandoori, Masala and true Northern Indian spicing. The chef seems to be able to cook each of the regional areas because the menu is expansive and if you can get the waiter to stop watching Bollywood and texting there's an entire "off menu" selection that they will tell you about.

Restaurant is in a run down concrete block on a back street and the interior decor is functional but DO NOT LET THAT PUT YOU OFF.
