I went with a few customers today because I have been in Belize for a week and craved some Indian food. I did the ordering since they were unfamiliar with Indian food. First we came in and the server just stared at us so we chose seats for ourselves. She brought us menus and asked about drinks, we all just... More

The restaurant is managed by family and they don't know anything about service. We were excited to go an Indian restaurant in Belize on the valentine day. Very disorganized. Three people were trying to service about 50 people in the restraint. The greedy and crazy owner was delivering food while so many people were waiting. Food was not bad, but... More

I had a craving for Indian food, which I get often after having been there. I read reviews about Sumathi and the latest had not been good. I was in a taxi going to a Chinese restaurant nearby and when I asked the taxi driver about Sumathi, he said it was good. So I went there and am so glad... More

We eat a lot of Indian food (my wife is from Bangladesh) and we were happy to find an Indian restaurant in Belize City. The interior was comfortable and spacious. Unlike most Indian restaurants in the U.S., the menu has some south Indian dishes as well as the usual Punjabi/Marathi fare. The food arrived fairly quickly. Naan bread is included... More

The food is good and certainly authentic (I lived in India for 2 years), the décor is cheesy indian restaurant style. Hey Belize isn't big on style anywhere is it? The customer service - dire. Greeted by long faces and a staff more interested in the Indian soap opera playing (more cheese). Don't expect a warm Namaste here! Head to... More

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
