“Very good .. but not the best”
Like many, I was surprised to see that an Indian restaurant ranked #1 in Santiago (at the time of visiting). As we were ready for a change after lost of seafood and love to eat Indian, we decided to try.
It was a great experience. We were welcomed by the personable owner, Rakesh, who regaled us with some of his stories. We sat in the nice patio (with Bollywood clips playing on a screen), service was good and quick. The food was very good, but not the best Indian I have ever eaten. I also thought it was a little too brightly coloured (food colouring, perhaps?). It is also quite expensive (but Santiago is an expensive town).
Anyway, I would certainly recommend it, if you are not on a budget. However, on looking through the reviews .. i noted a lot of 1 review reviewers giving 5 stars, which probably boost the rankings. On the other hand, there are some negative reviews that are also off (for instance it is not in a bad neighbourhood .. it is in Providencia and we walked there from the hotel).
