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.

Absolutely everything that I had from main dish to rice to naan to gulab jamun was the best ever! One of the top meals of my life in a low key, friendly, casual environment.
