5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went and had a late lunch here. The Cafe is quite small but it served fantastic food and was very good value.

“food to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were staying at the Clement and my wife decided she wanted to get some food to go . Who can blame her with the view of the bay from our room . I walked by this restaurant earlier in the day and noticed it was relatively inexpensive . Twenty bucks for dinner is a miracle in this neighborhood . We got the three item deal . Butter chicken , chicken curry and chick peas . I also added some garlic naan bread . I received my food in under five minutes . Brought it back to the Clement and enjoyed a tasty meal . All items were pretty tasty , although the chicken could have been cut in smaller pieces . I was told by a concierge from another hotel that they have a full service restaurant elsewhere in Monterrey . Will have to try that next time i'm in town . My 4 star is for the quality of food and value in an area that charges you nine dollars for a sandwich . Don't expect fancy seating as its a cafe .

“Great Indian food in a fast foodish kinda place.”

Ordered a prawn birnyan, lamb curry, and naan bread with a soda and beer for $29.

Friendly folks provided good service on Styrofoam dishes with plastic utensils.

“Chicken Tika is good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

My husband loves the chicken Tika Masala here a lot. You can order how spicy you want. Mild, medium or hot. I like the tandoori chicken. The Naan bread is soooo delicious.
That's all we get when we come.

“Incredible lunch buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We love to gorge ourselves here for lunch. Dinner is a bit pricey, and could use spicier recipes. But it's still very good!
