Went there with family and had high expectations. The food was descent but spicy!! So be aware if you go with kids, request mild or not spicy. Service was just lacking - the front desk lady didn't speak English, while the person who spoke English, walked away into kitchen after we arrived. Do not get Mango Lassi here...it was pretty...

I go out of my way to leave generous reviews, and to find some redeeming quality concerning the restaurant but ... we went there in spite of some bad reviews and because it's nearby. One review said owners were arrogant, aloof and unresponsive. TRUE. We were "waved" to sit anywhere. There was NO ONE else in the restaurant at 6:05pm.... More

Looking at the other reviews, I honestly felt that it didn't live up to the hype. We were really looking forward to having some South Indian cuisine in Belize and found out that all the idli/dosas were breakfast only. Food was average at best and more of a home cooked meal than restaurant fare. Also this is one of the... More

This restaurant wasn't half as amazing as reviews made it out to be. The restaurant looked okay, and the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. The portions of the food were okay, but the quality of the food was hovering above terrible. It wasn't up to restaurant standards at all, it tasted like a failed dinner attempt at... More

Indian food in Belize is a strange combo I know but traveling with vegetarians they needed a fix. Is the food as good as top Indian restaurants in New York City San Francisco etc? No. Is it a great Indian restaurant in the middle of Central America, absolutely! The vegetarians in the group loved all of the veggie options. I... More

We eat here frequently, $$ don't matter compare to the flavors! Lamb vindaloo is my favorite. Butter chicken and all!

If you are an Indian craving for Indian food in this faraway fantastic country, this is a good option while you are in Belize City. As we were in Ramada Princess Hotel, which was about a km from this place, we walked the distance and had lunch on 2 different days. The food was good, prices are not too high... More

The food is excellent but don't choose to get the buffet. Typically, the customer is able to choose from a variety of dishes, not this buffet. Two selections are served to the customer as the buffet entrees. Despite that disappointment, the food, especially the masalas are exquisite, the nan, to die for. The wait though, was intolerable. Would I go... More
