Reviewed March 6, 2012

If you are not in a hurry (don't let the name fool you!), this is a great place to eat. It has a good location and the food is great.

“Good inexpensive indian food”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Lal's is a really unpretentious place, but they serve nice Indian food at a very reasonable price. The location is not exactly romantic, but this restaurant doesn't pretend to be that. The subtitle to their name says it all: Curry in a Hurry. The owner is friendly and personal though. You cannot go wrong on this one.

“Yum! We love this restaurant!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Fabulous food, friendly staff, great prices! We here several times over the last 15 years. It has always been great! The flavors are fresh and bright and the seasonings are wonderfully well balanced. Their new location- just down the road from where they used to be is even easier to park at- If we are ever lucky enough to return to St Maarten we will surely return to Lals!

“#1 curry!”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Well so far I've eaten all the appetizers...both veg and beef samosa's are the best. Tried all the chicken dishes and always torn about my fav as love them all. The naan, ohh the cheese or garlic naan hands down! Be sure to request your level of spice, as all is made fresh to order so spice it to your liking! And of course Lal and his friendly team make it a pleasure to come back over and over!!
