Our neighbors took us to Curry Omm and we were thrilled to find such high quality, fresh and delicious Indian food in Playa del Carmen!!! Harish and Claudia are wonderful hosts and their passion for delivering quality dishes is evident! Not too many seats keeps the feel of the place very intimate. Good to call ahead for a reservation if possible. We will definitely return and tell all of our friends about this restaurant!!!!

After a week of either (a) Mexican cuisine, or (b) overpriced Italian / Argentinian food, we were delighted to find Curry Omm. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the quality of Indian food is off the charts, so we weren't sure what to expect. At Curry Omm, we found some of the best Indian foods we've had (outside of dining at our Indian friends' houses when their grandmothers were cooking for us!)

We ordered the papadum, the house-made chutneys, and the lamb vindaloo. All were exceptional. The owner asked us how hot we wanted the curry. My husband always orders it too hot and I get a stomach ache. After we received the perfect dish of vindaloo, we complemented the owner on the spice level. He grinned, winked, and said "I made it a little less spicy than the gentleman ordered because I could tell the lady was worried." Great perceptive service!

We had hoped to visit earlier during our stay but the place was packed. I'd recommend either calling in for a table or planning your visit when it is not a Friday or Saturday night.

Sorry for late review. We went to curry ominous November and was absolutely delighted to find an Indian restaurant in playa del carmen not sure how we missed it the year before.
It was a very mild but wet evening but we still managed to get a table outside which was great. We were welcomed by Hanish the owner who was lovely and informative. We had starters and a main. The butter chicken and chicken madras all of which were exceptional.. We met a terrific couple sitting next to us a Canadian guy and his Spanish girlfriend having more drinks in the pouring rain we never felt rushed to leave. Best meal we had in our 3 weeks. Everyone should give curry omm a go you won't be disappointed.

I dined there the other night. The owner was very, very friendly and attentive. I had onion bajhias as an appetizer - great with a nice chutney accompanying it.
We had naan bread, lamb vindaloo and chicken tika marsala for the main course. All were excellent. If you don't like "hot" food then I would stick to one of the milder dishes. Personally I thought the vindaloo was great - just saying.
If you want Indian food in Mexico, this is the place to go.

Hi Joe, we are very happy you enjoyed your meal with us. You are right, if you prefer to eat not so spicy dishes, we do offer a variety of mild dishes including Butter Chicken and Dhal Makani, both of which are very mild but full of Indian flavors add fresh mango chutney and a soft tava garlic nan to complete your main course. Of course if you do prefer a spicy dish than you can always finish with a choice of authentic Indian desserts, including Gulab Jaman and Labangs. We look forward to seeing you back at Curry Omm
