Great price of 15 soles for mostly veg buffet and filtered water is included. This will not be like the Indian food you're used to in the US or Europe but I still enjoyed it.

Fortunately we ate here before we read the reviews, yes it's a buffet, the choice is limited and they make it mild for the average American taste, however the vegetable dishes were varied and tasty, they only serve Keema and Chicken, but what do you expect for 5 USD. In order to spice it up they do provide a good... More

The worst Indian food I ever had! Dishes have no taste at all and very watery. Nothing was fresh. The only good thing was the chai and it was a bit too sweet. Do not recommend anyone to go there.

I eat Indian food a lot in the US and was very disappointed with the lunch buffet. No detectable Indian spices. All the dishes were watery and the Peruvian I was with said it was more like a cheap menú. It was edible but definitely not Indian that I'm used to.

We were craving Indian food one evening so decided to check this place out since it was close and seemed inexpensive for a buffet. When we arrived, a couple that was leaving said it was the worst Indian food they had ever had. We ate anyway. To me it had the appearance and idea of Indian food, maybe, and didn't... More

The only Indian restaurant in town. For only 15 sol for all you can eat curry,rice, salad bar. It is worth the money. But I think you should give it a try. Not much spicy food.

I visited Maikhana today after reading many positives about the restaurant. Indian food is one of my all time favorites and have been delighted by it in many different countries including living with Fiji Indians in the Fiji Islands. This unfortunately is the worst Indian food I've ever experienced. The flavors were the absolute worse. The seasonings could not have... More

The place was deserted but we took the chance. There was 2 similar chicken currys and a minced lamb. A couple of rices, Indian noodles, and a few vegetable dishes. No snacks or naan bread.

We are globe trotters and have tasted Indian where ever we have been, in a place like where excellent verges are grown the owner of this restaurant cooks only potatoes dishes that too horrible, the rice was half cooked and stale. When our friend requested for pickles , the reaction of the owner was very rude and said no pickle.... More
