Nice people, straightforward food at a reasonable price. Closed Sunday. Spice level can be customised and we found it just right.

While shopping at Touch of Gold, we had some service work being done on a recent purchase. Owner suggest we go to lunch and would have rings done when we return. Danny (worker) was going to lunch and asked us to join him. We never have had first hand Indian food. Danny ordered a platter of chicken, goat, fish, bread,... More

I like to try new flavors. I'm not very much into indian food, but they have very good dishes. The furniture is like a average cafeteria. Service is ok. They should give better info about the food. I would recommend to try this restaurant. If you do not like spicy food, make sure to tell them. Last time I order... More

Like having an Indian mom cooking for you. Egg plant Biryani and Palak Paneer best we had. Friendly staff. Noticed some local merchants eating here. Nothing fancy but who cares about fancy when you need tasty, healthy food and you're on a budget. Easy walk from boat or bus terminal.

For ethnic food it was mild even after requesting medium and paneer subji didn't bring any flavor. Samosas were decent. Portion were good size. I probably would favor tandoor kitchen in Aruba for Indian... More

Stopped in for dinner while on this trip. Food was really good; I liked my Mutton Rogan Josh. My wife also liked her Chicken Tikka. There was only one guy in the front, who was host & server. While the place isn't all that big (maybe a dozen tables or so), I think there was only one other person working... More

The ambience is understated, but the food is fabulous. The staff is pleasant and attentive. We make it for dinner every year we visit Aruba.

I have only eaten Indian food one other time. I purchased a frozen 2 dinners of Chicken tiki marsala with saffron rice from Costco for about $5.99. While vacationing in Aruba we wanted something different, so we went to Taj Mahal. Actually , The food was good, but I feel very overpriced. Even the bread was extra. Our bill was... More

Most places here are tourist places with sub par food. I've already eaten here twice and it's amazing!!!! This is authentic exhilarating food that I'll never forget. Ditch the resort food and tourist traps eat here instead - Carmel Ceravolo
