Wow, what a fantastic place this was! We were taken there on our second night by a friend who lives in Xela, and I was treated to some of the most delicious Indian food I have eaten in my entire life. All our dishes were superb, as were the service and the prices. Centrally located, it is easy to find....I... More

Although it's not the Guatemalan cuisine, you should really visit this restaurant. The food is delicious and it comes in big portions.

Delicious authentic Indian food. Plates are expensive and you have to wait 20-30 minutes to get the food. Plates are big so you can share them with a friend or relative.

Went there with a guided tour following our guide recommendations. I was excited about the meal: Indian cuisine traditionally spoils vegetarians and is wonderful, generous comfort food. I ordered the vegetarian Thali: always a favorite. What a disappointment. The 'Thali' was a sad white China plate with a mere four compartments. To make matters worse, I noticed that the same...

This place is amazing. A little on the expensive side if you're budget traveling, but by far the best food I had in xela. Quite possibly the best Indian food I've ever eaten. And I like Indian food. Make the trip if you can

Great Indian food in Guatemala?? Yes!! The food is great, as is the service. I ordered mine spicy, but it wasn't very spicy so ask for LOTS of spice if you want it that way!

Would you ever expect to get delicious Indian food in Guatemala?? Probably not but you should believe it. Some of the most traditional Indian food I have ever had...well at least traditional by my standards (whatever that may mean to you). Absolutely delicious. It is considered a more expensive option in Xela but decently priced by US standards. Expect Guatemalan... More

It's already been said in the other reviews here. This place stands out at possibly the best restaurant in town. It's a little pricy, but definitely worth the price. In addition to the outstanding food, the service and atmosphere is great. Don't think twice about it. You won't be disappointed. Well, unless you prefer bland food with the típico comida... More
