Very nice take on Indian food, managed by natives of India. Family environment, yet appropriate for business meals. Good service, central location

As an English fella, anglicised versions of Indian and Chinese food are very much part of the UK national diet. While other Indian restaurants in Mexico City have been tasty, in my opinion this one is by far the best for quality, flavour and service with the Mexican waiters sporting the traditional kurta and wearing it well. Khormas, tandoori, Nans,... More

I've been in other Indian Restos in Mexico City and this is one of the best. Great taste, nice environment. A 2 floor house, casual, feels like home. Slightly pricey, but I guess is normal being in Polanco. My only comment is the service wasn't the nicest it was just Ok. I would come back for the food. Good options... More

Authentic spices, I can say it´s one of the best Indian food restaurants in the city, not only great taste, and great selection of plates, but also because serving portions are not small like other restaurants. Also the prices are very affordable.

Small but very good food with quality ingredients, will recommend. Do not expect anything fancy, the restaurant actually has an old look in every way, it could use a bit of a revamped, but great place to eat.

Since our arrival to Mexico City we made our task to identify a good quality Indian Restaurant. After a few disappointments, we found what we were looking for, since then we have been loyal customers! We were in last night again, and went for our favorites, being one of them Chicken Tikka Masala! Superb flavours, a freshly made Garlic Nan... More

Mostly oily food. All their bread is buttery and oily. They taste the same. Some popular dishes are ok like butter chicken etc. sweets are nice. The service is not good, nobody smiles. They can do better in quality of food and also in service. I think they are getting comfortable with some regular crowd and polanco crowd for lunch... More

Thumbs up for all those Indians heading to Mexico. You have an Indian restaurant owned and run by Indian serving best Indian food in town. You get right here awesome main course dishes, beverages, desserts and very Indian mouth freshners. A must place for a good dinner

Not many Indian restaurants in the area where our hotel was (Reforma) - a bit challenging to find this restaurant and we gave up visiting a couple of days ago because the cabbie just couldn't find it. Once we were there, we were not disappointed - simply vegetarian stuff was ordered and all the various dishes were tasty.

I really do not understand why some of the Indian restaurants get more rating than this gem. Being from South India, i could say that food is very good, close to whatever we get in India. Lot of vegetarian options.
