If you're craving Indian food, this is (as far as I know) your only option in Playa. It will satisfy your craving, though it's not as good as most other Indian food we've had around the world. We've tried four or five different dishes now. Also, we once ordered for delivery, which was very convenient, but the driver didn't have... More

Amazing kindness and flavour! We are Indian cuisine buffs......if you like the flavour of India do not miss this place! Best lamb curry I've ever had period! Asked for more vegetables and they accepted and accommodated with a big saying "of course we can do that for you" The price does match Canadian dollars but the quality is there with... More

I really enjoyed my dinner here. I had mango lassi, basmati rice, chick pea soup (can't remember the Indian name) and chapatti. Atmosphere is wonderful and the restaurant is own by a wonderful couple - lady is Mexican and husband is Indian American from Chicago. Highly recommend you stop by during your visit in Playa.

Group of us had a great dinner here. We got all the starters on the menu and shared them among us. Lamb rogan josh seemed more stew like than a curry but it tasted great and the lamb was cooked to perfection. Chicken tikka masala seemed to be best main course we had. Owners were very personable and interesting with... More

We've been going to Curry Omm for years and years. Harish, the owner, is super friendly. We had the lamb samosas this time and they were fantastic. Highly recommend it for anyone looking for an Indian food fix. See you again soon!

Service was good but the food overall was terrible, had the butter chicken & nan, reminded me of my days back at school having to eat the dreaded schooldinner curry. And extremley overpriced for the quality of the food. Starters were average, wouldnt recommend.

LOVE indian food, so when I heard this was here, I had to try them out! I only tried the samosas and pakoras but they were both great. The pakoras were more big chunks of vegetables, rather than a batter like I'm used to. Tasty though, at any rate. Prices were great. Location is good, not too far from 5th.... More

I can't believe all these 5 star reviews. While the service was excellent the food was mediocre at best. The blandest Indian food I've ever eaten.
