This is real upscale Indian food As Good As It Gets at reasonable prices. I visited this restaurant a few years ago and it was not the same as now. They have a new chef and the quality of the food is 5 star. There were several British patrons who said they don't go anywhere else for Indian food. Everything... More

No ambience, but acceptable meal. Good take-out menu, quick service. Acceptable, and not fancy. Parking is tricky. close to our resort

This was a treasure to find! Great authentic flavors, fresh made naan, and reasonable prices. I would make an effort to go back again if back on St. Maarten.

I don't know a lot about Indian food but I will say that this was delicious. I wish the staff had been more helpful, but the food and the price - two thumbs up.
