This was my second time here because the food, vibe and location were good enough to come back. Unfortunately, this time was not a success - both my girlfriend friend and I have been violently vomiting and diarrheaing the chicken tikka masala and lamb rogan josh starting around 5am. As we shared both dishes, I'm not sure if it was... More

If you want food spiced differently than Peruvian food,this is a good place. If you want Indian food, forget about it.

I've been coming to Korma Sutra for three years. I returned last night after a 6-month hiatus to find that their menu had changed. They no longer offer spicy coconut-milk based chicken dishes like they used to. But I found a spicy coconut-milk veggy dish on the menu, and I requested to have chicken added to it for whatever additional... More

Was chumping at the bits for a good indian restaurant and discovered this gem recommended by a friend. Great flavour and very authentic. The chicken tikka is awesome and so is the chick pea curry. Could sample all the dishes if I could. Great service too

Best Indian food in Cusco, maybe even Peru! Lovely cosy spot with great service and price! Highly recommend this place - there is also a cost effective half Guinea pig option if you want to sample to local delicacy!

The strong smell of cury will pool you in of you're hungry. It's a small place with an open kitchen. I had samosas which was tasty. Prices are a bit high.

Boy howdt do i love Indian food. Its a serious comfort food for me, so when it goes wrong it goes badly wrong and when it goes right it goes very right. Happy to state that they hit the nail on the head here. Had a big beer and a lamb rogan josh which cost 44soles (13USD). Its not cheap... More

Post our Machu Picchu trek, a bunch of us were famished, and really craving indian food. We found this place, and ordered like we havent seen food before. The onion bhajjis were amazing, the garlic naans and the channa, dhal were so yummy. We had a good time listening to hindi music and chatting about our experiences here.

Set off above the square of San Blas - behind the church - this litte eatery delivers a nice change of food packed with flavor. Perfect for those cold nights in San Blas. Come early to grab a table as it is small . We ate the samoosas - excellent made with homemade pastry ,followed by a delicious Butter chicken... More
