Trying to find excellent Indian food in Central America is a real challenge but this was pretty good. The atmosphere was a good try at India but not special. Of the 3 dishes we ordered the Dal was very good, the curry chicken was OK, & the last one (I don't remember the name) didn't hit OK. The service was... More

I have visited several indian restaurants, and in my opinion this is the best in San Salvador. The great thing about the restaurant is that it has great vegetarian an non vegetarian dishes. The Shrimp curry is a must if you go! Also try their chai tea, the spices mix for the tea is made by the restaurant's chef.

A real Indian feel when you enter into the resturant. The food is also made by real indian chef and he can customize the flavor of the food according to your test of spice. I recommend the lamb however its costly in the menu. I visit at least 2 times every month in this resturant with my office friends. I... More

The set-up is very nice. They have an area with a lower dining table and cushions - original Indian style I guess; very handy if you are with a big group and/or have younger children (they can fall asleep). The food is great; excellent taste, spicy when requested and the portions are sufficient. The service is also good, they are... More

We are regular curry eaters used to UK restaurants so this review may hols a few comparisons with the UK curry house experience. The place itself is medium sized with seating for maybe 60ish people, some seated on low cushions around large tables. My wife & I chose to sit at a regular table but the folk on the cushions...

Looking for a place other than chain restaurants in our part of San Salvador I found this place on the map. Indian food is one of my favorites so we headed right over. The staff were quite friendly, and the sit-on-the-floor table option was great with my one-year-old running around. The food was tasty - though it followed the too-salty... More

It seems to be the only Indian food restaurant in the city. Not the best naan, but other than that, the curries and paneer and chicken was pretty good.
