We thought this was a strange name for an Indian restaurant, but we decided to try an almuerzo. When we were seated upstairs in a lovely, large, well lit dining room, we were informed by the waiter that the almuerzo is only Ecuadorian cuisine, not Indian.

He convinced us to order off the menu, stating he would give us the rice for free. We did. I had the chicken korma and my husband had the chicken curry. We were both pleasantly surprised at the portions. Each dish was generously proportioned in a soup bowl. The chunks of chicken were abundant. The cup of rice was overflowing and more than enough.

Both dishes were excellent, but being so conditioned to small metal dishes of an entree, we were overjoyed with what we were served due to the size and the exquisite flavors.

Nothing over the menu was over $6 with one exception, a lamb dish. Our entrees were $5 each, only a couple of dollars more than an almuerzo.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant, which seems to be an undiscovered gem.

We had a special lunch in the bar of Cuenca and Restaurant in this afternoon .It was a wonderful experience, more about the food was delicious, especially the Chicken Ticka masala and the Kerala Paratha. We got an Indian taste in Cuenca,Ecuador, because me and my husband was in India last year, we felt the same taste in the bar of Cuenca.It's seems like the natural taste of Indian spices and the food was absolutely fresh because after order only they are preparing. So it will be more delicious and more hygienic .They are giving more important' s to making the food more hygienic.The restaurant's decorations is awesome.. We're recommending everybody to try one time in the natural taste of India... You will get a wonderful experience in the bar of Cuenca... There's no doubt about that....Have a Good Day!
