Best Indian Restaurant

4 Posted on 07 / 10 / 2013

The owner and his wife are nice, kind and warm.
They gave us something to bring on the road free of charge.
The food is cook every morning and at night. They have varieties of Indian meal from dahl, samosa, roti,chapati and curried veggies.
They cater pure vegetarian food.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff
Cons: location is far from downtown

    Hi veggievince,
    I think you misunderstood my post here.
    This is my personal opinion only. My comments is based on my personal experience on this restaurant. Everyone has his own opinion. You can even write yours what is the best Indian restaurant based on your personal experience.

    I disagree with your statement that this is the BEST Indian restaurant in Cebu. Was this the only one you went too?!

    Please dine in each of the following Indian restaurants in Cebu, and then make that claim. Happy Eats!

    1. Maharaja, Century Plaza Commercial Complex

    2. Zayka Indian Cuisine, Juana OsmeƱa Street

    3. Firozian, near Cebu Doctors Hospital(near Capitol)

    4. Mr. India, Gaisano Country Mall

Hard to find but totally worth it

If you're a vegetarian traveling in the Philippines then you know how hard it is to find good food you can eat. It took us a long time to find this place but the food was incredible. Indian home cooking at its best - simple, delicious and moderately priced. We went back again the next day even though transport took up half the day.

Pros: excellent food
Cons: difficult to locate

Indian Vegetarian Karendaria

3 Posted on 08 / 16 / 2012

Unless you go to Southwestern or live near here, it is a bit difficult to find. However, it is good that it is right next to Healthy U (vegan).

This is a typical Filipino karendaria style place. The food is already prepared and you can pick which dish you want. There is no a/c so it may be warm or hot. If you are not used to traveling in Asia and eating street food, please be warned, and take probiotics to avoid any possible intestinal issues.

The owner was friendly when we visited. We ordered some snacks (merienda) like roti (flat bread) served with ketchup curry (a unique indian-pinoy creation) and potato curry samosas. The roti was different from others I've had. It was fair. The samosa was really spicy, maybe a bit too spicy because it had large chunks of hot chili peppers in it. I did not get a chance to try the curries, which looked good.

Pros: good value, tasty, friendly owner
Cons: hard to find, no air con

Best vegan restaurant on the island!

This place is *amazing*. The staff were incredibly helpful, letting us sample dishes and offering their suggestions. The ambiance is quaint, with brightly painted walls and humble tables with benches. The food was incredibly cheap as mentioned above. We had more than enough food for 2 people and it was 250P! Everything we tasted was delicious, especially the samosas. Do not leave Cebu without eating here, you won't regret it!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good price

Pros: cheap, tasty, friendly owner
Cons: hard to find

More like really Inexpensive!

5 Posted on 03 / 17 / 2012

I paid around 6 USD for a drink, a roti, huge portion of rice, and 3 extra things that i have no idea what they are but they were delicious!
The restaurant is buffet style, so dont ask what it is just go for whatever looks good!. Apparently they make samosas every morning but they run out around 10 am.
The google maps directions are wrong, is actually in the same block than Healthy U.
Really good, friendly staff and cheap!

Pros: Friendly staff, cheap, good food
