I ate here twice when I was in Playa del Carmen. The staff were very friendly, the ambiance was great and the prices weren't too bad. I am gluten-free and vegetarian and the restaurant had no issue with this.

Had some excellent curry here. At the northern end of the 5th Ave pedestrian zone, it's set in a really beautiful area.
