I had been craving some Indian food for a while after being in South America and this restaurant highly satisfied these cravings! It was so good we came here twice for dinner. The chicken masala is delicious and you can choose the strength you prefer. It is a small homely restaurant with a nice ambience. If I could go back... More

I love indian, and have tried quite a few places in Quito. I think the reviews vary depending on someone´s taste. To me, its really good and has a big variety, service is a little slow and arent mega friendly but the food makes up for it big time. The flavor is also authetic and the naan is even better....

Multiple options for all diets. My vegan option was well prepared and spicy to a level that I requested and expected. Lunch was only $4.00. Service was OK.

We've eaten Indian food around the world, and we thought the food here was fantastic. I had a vegetarian curry with naan and my husband had a chicken dish. Both were delicious, and the prices were reasonable for foreign food in Quito. The service was fine - really nothing great or terrible about it. They have food at all levels... More

The food here was just ok. I asked for medium spice in my butter chicken, and it was not spicy in the least bit. The portions were not that big, but the prices were not too high. The service was slow and not friendly. After using my credit card to pay here (the only place I'd used the car in... More

This restaurant is nice it may note be the nicest but the food speak for it self. The portions are not really big, if you are really hungry try to orther couple of things. It has reasonable prices and many options. Try to get the bread with your dish. The veggie options are good. The service is not the best... More

I think first impressions are important and I was really looking forward to a good Indian meal not having had one in 2 years so my expectations may have been high. The first impression was not fantastic as no one greeted us or showed us to a table we just walked in and found our own seats and then it... More

The first time here i was positively impressed. The owner welcomed me and cooked the meal, maybe that's why. The second time the owner was absent, the nan cold and stale and the food forgetable. The third time the owner was there again, and again a positive experience. But the last time, the owner was absent, the entree inedible and... More

This is a family-run restaurant. I've read some complaints from vegetarians regarding limited options for them. True, this is not a vegetarian restaurant. They're from Pakistan, which explains the meat on the menu. The Chef is the owner, his son is the waiter. When they first started, the kid wasn't too friendly but now he's much more into helping you... More
