Please do not go here. Saying the food is bland is an understatement. It is tasteless and by far the most expensive meal we have had in Guatemala. STAY AWAY!

Starting with the positives, I would agree with most of the reviews I've read: beautiful garden dining, service was pretty good, some of the food was really good. But...portions were very meager: both the chicken tikka massala and chicken madras had a few pieces of meat in a bowl of cardamom-heavy sauce, served with a small cupful of rice. My... More

I was very excited to go and try Hindi cuisine as I miss it a lot and went to try it, unfortunately the expectations weren't met. I tried the Chicken Tikka Masala but the spicy, chicken, rice did not had the Indian taste nor a decent size for the price the place charges. Beverages seems to be their really specialty... More

First, Pushkar Indian restaurant is a charming place, good ambiance. Good enough service. We ordered lassi for drinks. One Pineapple and ginger and one 'natural'. These would have been good if they were not overloaded with ground cardamom seeds. One was so much-I had to pull them from between the teeth. If the chef had tasted it -it would not... More

We came to have dinner with my wife. We ordered a focaccia panini and asian wrapp. Food and service was excellent. Food quality was very good. The ambience in general very good. We sat in the garden with the light of a candle. Very relax and nice. Prices very convenient. We definitely will come back and recommend this place.

We tried Culinaria because our hotel manager recommended it as having good food and nice dining in a garden setting. We entered, we sat. The menus came, we read them. The waiter returned to take our order, we ordered tons of food and a couple of beers. After a few minutes the beer arrived along with our order of naan... More

The place had a nice patio, but so do most restaurants in Antigua. I don't think I've tasted such bland Indian food in my life. Half of our order was very clearly frozen and reheated - not fresh. For the price, we were very unimpressed. Would not return or recommend.

I had a good experience here a few years ago. Returned in July 2016, and while the place is still very charming, the Indian food was not impressive. We had the vegetarian Thali and it was below average. That said, the staff is very nice.

Last week, we visited Culinaria for a birthday dinner. We have been here for several times and I think is a good option for a relaxing night to spend with family or your couple. I enjoy the food and the ambiance a lot but I also think, meals should improve a lot. I prefer to pay a little more to... More

I have eaten in at least 20 restaurants in Antigua and this was a very pleasant dining experience. My wife and I elected to order three appetizers off the menu to share...a vegetarian samosa, coconut shrimp, and green chicken tandoori. The welcome to the restaurant and service during ordering was very nice. The central courtyard was bright and cheerful and... More
