Ate here one time during our week in Aruba. The food was very good. The service was tolerable, not outstanding but not horrible.

We have been to this restaurant, ambience was nice with some Indian music. We ordered for Assorted pakora and samosa as starter. Those were nice but the pakoras were fried together like Chicken and vegetable. So the starters are not vegetarian friendly. Curries were nice and spicy but all curries were sweet. Even the biryani was also Sweet. I would... More

GREAT FOOD! SUPER STAFF! We love Indian food and have had it all over the world. This is the best we have even found and extremely reasonable. Well worth looking for it. Every time I go to Aruba, this is my first stop for dinner or lunch. Most of their clientelle are Indian, which says a lot!

The services was good, but the food was very very good. I didn't try tandoor. I guess just 3 Indian restaurant food in Aruba, and the Taj Mahal in my opinion have the best tasty of all. Fast, simple and very good food. Is a good choice if you want a different tasty in Aruba (different from sea food). No... More

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.

May be I should give it four stars but overall this place it bit dull and food was dull too. Service was bit slow but nice. 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
