“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

The India restaurant in Arequipa might seem like an unusual choice, but is undoubtably one of the best places we have eaten in our trip around South America. The food is prepared fresh by Roy, the Indian chief who has worked all over the world, but now settled down in Arequipa with his Peruvian wife. We went here twice whilst staying in Arequipa and both times the quality and the freshness of the food didn't fail to impress. This is maintained by having a small menu with both vegetarian, meat and fish options - so something for everyone. The total bill each time we went didn't come over 60 soles, including two starters, two mains and drinks. Unbelievable value when you are looking for something different. Highly recommend.

“What a find”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We only went to the restaurant because of the great reviews. They were not wrong. Yes, this is a small simple restaurant, but the food if fantastic. Great flavours and well prepared. No you will not get breads and all the different dishes you would expect at an Indian restaurant elsewhere, but you will get simple food prepared extremely well.

We are in Arequipa for 5 days so we will be going back again, at least one more time!

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A friend recommended this restaurant. We arrived and it was not what I expected.. it was a tiny place.. The owner was friendly and spoke perfect English. The menu had many varieties and I have to say everything was super tasty! Even my young kids licked their plates. This is as authentic as you can find in terms of Indian cuisine. Highly recommended!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This restaurant offers large quantities of food for a great price. Did I mention it's also delicious? The only difficulty I had was deciding what not to order.

The owner was very friendly as well. If you're looking for a good, hearty meal in Arequipa, this is the place to go. The restaurant-front is somewhat hidden, but it's easy to find. It's basic in decor, but whatever it lacks in decor, it makes up in flavor.
