Great atmosphere, attentive staff, and excellent flavors. We tried the chicken vindaloo, lamb rogan josh, and vegetable pakora. All were very flavorful and came in generous portions. This is hands down the best Indian food in San Jose.

The decor, friendly staff and great food all combine to make this restaurant a must stop when in Escazú. Portions are ample, and the menu offers significant variety for vegetarians, naan lovers and others.

Fun Atomosphere and very good food. They cooked it fresh exactly to my liking and happily eliminated foods and spices that I can't eat. !!!!
