The food, service and ambiance is just perfect. I am a big fan of Indian cuisine and naans is just the real deal. With excellent options, location and service. My favorite restaurant by far.

“Just OK.”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

the first time I ordered lamb curry and it was very expensive for what I got. The second time I had chicken curry, it was good. The price they charge for their rice is much too much. Other dishes eaten were good but seem expensive for what you get. I had a problem getting them to make me a sweet lassi without fruit . There are not many choices for Indian food in Costa Rica and both India restaurants within a 30 min. drive of Escazu are good but charge too much for what you are getting.

Thank you for taking time out from your busy schedule in helping us further enhance Naans & Curries.

We have noted you compliments for our Chicken Curry. Would recommend you to try our Chicken Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken also on next visit.

The rice we use is "Long Grain Basmati", which is considered as one of the finest varieties of rice in the world for its aroma, flavor and long grain. As Basmati Rice, and several other Indian Ingredients, are not locally available in Costa Rica the import / input costs are very high for any Indian restaurant.. We are committed to originality of the flavors and the recipe and as such have not compromised on the ingredients..

We assure you of more lassi varieties for you for next visit..

Thanks & regards

“Best Indian Restaurant in CR”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We live in CR and miss Indian food, so were glad to try this restaurant. Really enjoyed it. I had Chicken Korma, and the sauce was so delicious I had to finish it all by dipping my naan in it!

We noted your comments with serious concern.

I invite you to come and visit us again, kindly. - your entire meal would be on us.

We want to demonstrate you that how delicately we handle the meats, specially as we have Indian management and several Indian guests who are vegetarian by religion and do not eat even any kind of meat.

Please call me at 83165554 or send me an e-mail at kapil@naans-curries to just inform your visit schedule. I would personally welcome you.

We have received several accolades for the high quality and flavors of our lamb dishes and want to assure, our 5 star native chefs have full understanding of the clients' preferences and ordering.

For any possible service errors, we would immediately take corrective actions and would put additional checks for Beef and Lamb - same curry dishes.
