Stayed in the Sonesta Posadas del Inca Cusco.
This restaurant is located around the corner.
On the night I was visiting the owner was just about to close but decided to let me in.
She was friendly and we chatted for a bit.
The food was pretty good, loved the garlic chicken.
Some of the dishes were spicy just the way I liked it.
$15 sol for Indian Buffet with mineral water.

I enjoyed the food and was back the following night.

While wandering around in Cusco and looking for a place with food and WiFi we arrived downstairs at the Maikhana. The Lady (she seemed to be one of the owners) promised us WiFi and good food. So we entered. We asked a few times if WiFi is guaranteed (we wanted to safe some money by planning our further trip in a restaurant or cafè while eating with WiFi. so that we would not have to pay for an extra Internetcafé). She always said "Yes, we have WiFi. No problem" So we went to the buffet and started eating. After eating we wanted to use the WiFi. It didn't work. While we were asking after WiFi the other owner was only laughing at us and telling something like "yeah our WiFi doesn't work". We very angry and asked for a discount, because the WiFi was the reason for entering this restaurant. He only kept laughing and didn't answer at all. The food was not that bad but not worth the money and the stuff was that unfriendly in total that i wouldn't recommend it to others!
Fact is: Don't lie to your customers just to get customers!

We came to cusco for the inca trail and went to this restaurant on for lunch. We were looking for another indian restaurant but stumbled across this one and decided to try it. I won't say it's among the best indian restaurant or food, but for an indian restaurant in cusco, this was quite good.

There were about 12 vegetarian varieties and 8-10 non-vegetarian. 2 of us are vegetarian so we opted for the veg dishes and one of our friend went for some chicken dishes. We found the food to be more like home cooked. The staff was nice and attentive. They didn't have bowls but were nice to bring cups. The food was warm as in buffet and we asked if they could make it extra hot for us and they took the trouble of heating up all our dishes in microwave. I think over all a nice experience and good food.

We were three friends with Indian origin - 2 grew up in the USA and 1 in India. We were meeting for our annual trip and this time decided to pick Peru. Overall a decent experience.
