we went for dinner twice. The food is tasty and not too greasy. Service was quick. Naans were excellent and authentic. The fruit juices were too sweet. Prices are great and much better than US based indian restaurants.

We very much enjoyed our meal, the friendly service, and the nice atmosphere.

However, be warned the owners have made some compromises to suit local tastes and due to the unavailability and/or high cost of certain Indian ingredients in Ecuador.

So no basmati rice (the owner said it costs $5 a pound locally), or mulligatawny soup (despite the general love of soups by Ecuadorians the owner said people would complain and send it back as too spicy or strange tasting), and the flavorful heat of dishes has been toned down considerably to not scare away Ecuadorians that have no dishes, even with generous addition of the hottest local aji sauce, that come close to the fire of a real Indian vindaloo.

So no soup for me and the lamb vindaloo I ordered, although tasty was baby mild...the owner said if I return to please them him know that I want it true Indian style and they will gladly add more chili and seasonings.

So my advice to those that expect and enjoy more intense Indian flavors is to just ask that they turn up the heat...and then ask for a mango lassi to cool down.

Enjoy.

Excellent Indian restaurant that rivals London's Brick Lane. Had a thoroughly enjoyable meal here consisting of (on the table): Vegetable Samosas, Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Korma, Lamb Masala and Garlic Naans. Every dish was great and the service was impeccable. By far the best curry in Quito, and a meal for 4 cost just $50.

Having made many trip to India over the past 10yrs plus with 1-2 month stay I found the food here to be a perfect representative of what you find in India. it's very good and the prices are reasonable. To repeat -- made the MISTAKE OF TRUSTING the location given on the map. The owner says he has advised TripAdvisor but it has not be corrected. First Lonely Planets in Chile now TripAdvisor in Ecuador. If there is a phone # given suggest you use it it validate location if using the walking mode.

Great food, great nan and surprisingly inexpensive. Incidentally, the map on TripAdvisor is off by about 10 blocks. It's on Mera and Pinta, a block north of Colon.
