Excellent food, had vegetarian dishes as well as chicken. This restaurant would be booked solid for a month in the States.

We had the chicken tikka massala and vegetable curry, and found they tasted alike. The naan looks and tastes like normal bread. The vegetable curry had lots of different veggies and the lassi was fresh. Lovely staff and atmosphere.

We had a lovely meal at La Eliana - Salento, starters were just right size. We both had curry as our main dish which was nice and juicy, topped with a shared sticky Tiramissu.

Unfortunately I can't recommend this place at all. After getting there we waited twenty minutes until the waiter came to take our order. Instead of chai as ordered (in an Indian food serving restaurant) we got a cup with not even hot water and a black tea bag. The entry meal was ok, but not so good as expected. After... More

First than all, we do apologize for the bad experience. We hired new English speaking staff that will make sure no one else get black tea instead of chai tea. Our pizzas are prepared every day, they are delicious, fresh and baked in a stone reason why, unfortunately, they were gone. Again, with put some controls in place to make... More

Having been travelling for a few weeks it was nice to have the opportunity to eat something a little different. Their menu includes a variety of options but it was the chicken jalfrezi curry which attracted us to this place. Very nice food seated in a small dining area overlooking La Eliana's accommodation. Very enjoyable.

I went with my family and we had a wonderful time. The food is great and they offer a very friendly service. Limonada de coco was a big highlight as well as the curry. This is a fantastic option for vegetarians or people looking for more international options in the coffee region. Highly recommended.

This is a delightful restaurant in a hostel with a gorgeous garden and friendly owners and staff. We had the #2 special of quinoa, soy croquettes and salad and the vegetable curry. The curry is made to order as to the spicy heat of one’s choice. Ours was extra hot and the chef delivered perfectly. The quinoa has to be... More

We shared two curries here, vino, and tiramisu. Homemade naan bread and well sized portions made for a solid dinner. The veggie curry with lemongrass was great. Tikka was dry and blandish, go for medium spicy all around.
