Indian Palace San Jose: what do users think?


Sachu Tintu: We booked our reservation last minute on valentines weekend so we had a late dinner on sunday night. We were sat and served immediately and had a wonderful meal. The bread NAAN was so soft and tasty, watch out you might fill up on the bread. Everything was so tasty but the rice curry and dessert are a definite must for a side!! We couldn't finish it all and took it home. Our server and she made sure we were treated like family and had a wonderful time. Overall a wonderful date night!

Helene Key: The food was amazing! We lucked up to find such a place to conclude our three week stay in Costa Rica. The staff was polite and patient as we practiced our Spanish. The music added a special touch of authenticity. The location is near to everything. We would recommend this place and definitely try it again!

Dhruv J.: Oh my god… as an indian person it’s always a struggle and a risk to find good Indian food. So when I had my first bite here I was actually emotional… lol The flavors are authentic, delicious and everything is cooked to perfection. The service was attentive and on point, too. The food reminds me of India, and don’t tell my mom, but I don’t think I’ve had better food outside Indian food, outside of India. Bonus: there’s Bollywood music playing and the decor is lovely. Would be a great date spot. Please eat with your hands 😜
Response: Thank you so much Sir ! for your review and feedback. Looking forward to serve you again...! #indianpalacebarrioescalante #indianpalaceheredia #indianpalaceescazu #indianpalacecr

If you’re craving for Indian food at its best, look no further. One of the best Indian restaurants in Costa Rica.

Eduardo Alejandro Barrio: You are in San José and you want to eat an excellent Indian food. This is your place! You have to go! It’s relatively cheap (in local standards) and the chef is an expert. He is from India and he knows very well how to give you the best experience .

Taste of India506: what do users think?


Traveling Cosmos and Tacos: I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!! The Peacock decor is what made me stop here! The food was very tasty and well seasoned! The mango frozen drink was absolutely delicious. Nothing on the menu is overly spicy. Good authentic flavors, no shortcuts! Would absolutely come here again when visiting this area! The staff was beyond accommodating!

Luis Alvarado: The food was amazing. The waiter helped us though tje decision making and the outcome was unique. A geouod5of dishes that were just incredible. I have no words to explain the taste, quality and level of professionalism the food had. We took it slow with it because it was so powerful and yet so tasteful. Every time we go I love indian food even more. Have not had a food or special drink that did no catch my eye. Highly recommended. Also the menu is very extensive. Do note for many of the options (I mean it, there are MANY options to choose from) always ask the staff since tbey csn guide your palate in a better way to what you want to enjoy. With that said, staff is amazing, environment is great, music is great and above all, food is outstanding.

Katie Sanderson: Curry & chicken at 📍 @tasteofindia506 Rating: 🤩🤩 Delicious & will go back again Thoughts 💭 We ordered the chicken tikka masala, chicken chettinad, makhan Wala tandoori and kali mirch ka tikka. Both chicken starters were incredibly. Really flavoursome, juicy chicken. The chicken tikka masala was fantastic. Up there with one of my favourites I have ever had - 100% a reorder if we make it here again. The chettinad was delicious but I would still explore over parts of the menu. Reviews by @thefoodiestraveldiary

Monte Thakkar: Honestly, the best Indian food in San Jose. We got the Panner Butter Masala and it was phenomenal. The softest panner I’ve ever had. The service is great too.

Isabella Andre: Amazing food! Our waiter was incredibly nice and good different plates for us to try. It was delicious. Staff was super nice and helpful when ordering food.Food: 5/5 | Service: 5/5 | Atmosphere: 4/5Recommended dishes Stuffed Samosa, Chicken Curry, Butter Chicken …More

Maria Loera: It’s a strange occurrence that some of the best Indian food that I have had is in Costa Rica! The spices tasted very fresh and the meats were all cooked to a tender perfection. The menu is surprisingly large with mix of dishes from both north and south India which can be hard to find. When I asked for a recommendation (due to the large amount of tasty dishes available) I was pointed towards their lamb which is their specialty and was not disappointed. I also ordered their passion fruit lassi which was absolutely unique and delicious. If you are in the mood for trying something outside of traditional Costa Rican food in San José, this is the place to go to.

Ram Saun: I went there with 4 other friends in august 2022. I had ordered achari paneer tikka, roti and it tasted good. For drink I ordered mango Lassi and I didn't like it at all. I'm giving 2 star just bc of lassi. It is not worth the money. It was so watery and hardly tasted yogurt.

Banupriya Sridharan: Omg what a find. Authentic Indian food in Costa Rica. We loved everything we ordered, the cocktails are really good. Highly recommendedFood: 5/5 | Service: 5/5 | Atmosphere: 5/5 …More

Bill Green: Everything about our lunch visit was very nice. The food is exceptionally good and the service is first rate. I had Chicken Marsala and the amount of spiciness I requested was spot on. Probably the most impressive thing was how they handle my wife’s many food sensitivities. The waiter took notes as she explained what she can, and can’t eat. Two times while the meal was being prepared the waiter returned to report on how her meal was being made to verify compliance. It is often time difficult to eat out due to her restrictions but they handled the request easily and without seeming annoyed whatsoever. The waiter was pleasant and very helpful. Everything was perfect. I’d give 6 stars if I could.

Jineesh P R: One of the best Indian food i have ever eaten. The ingredients are natural. Even the chilly and spices tasted fresh. Loved it. We ordered a lamb Biriyani, beef vindaloo, palak paneer and some rotis. So tasty. Everything had its unique taste. I have eaten from restaurants around the world, so surprising that i had to come to Costa Rica to eat good Indian food 😀

Sins Of Wanderlust: Fatastic and authentic Indian food. Located in a large and well decorated space, it's well worth a visit. All dishes are made fresh and are delicious. Great selection of drinks from the bar. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

Chirag Bhatt: PROS - Absolutely one of the BEST Indian restaurants we have even been to - The food was AMAZING - the spices and smell and taste was PERFECT for EVERY dish we ordered. Not ONE was one where we could find anything wrong - Customer service was fantastic - The ambience and decor was perfect - Location was easy to get to - We have been to so many Indian restaurants all over the world and this EASILY ranks in the top 10 Indian restaurants we have been to - if you are in San Jose and want a great dinner or lunch you will be FOOLISH to skip this option CONS NONE

Dan Buettner: Delicious Indian cuisine in Costa Rica. I eat a lot of Indian food in the United States and this was better than most restaurants I have dined at in the US. The owner and chef is very friendly and talented. In addition, he seems to be fluent in several languages Vegetarian options: Delicious flavors

shree patel: Took 1 ⭐️ because as Mango Lassi didn’t even look nor tasted like a mango lassi. Avatar paneer curry and Garlic Naan was SWEET. Indian food needs sugar but it doesn’t need to taste sweet. Hope this helps! Overall pretty good. Great vibes! Loved the paneer tikka and green chutney but wish my main course was just as much. I didn’t enjoy everything being sweet. But the taste was pretty good without it being sweet. Chicken was good! Great SERVICE!!! Love the Dulhan painting!

Tara T: We had such a wonderful meal here! The food was delicious. They have a large menu including vegetarian and gluten free dishes. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend if you’re in the Escazú area.

Agneya Chikte: Had a wonderful meal here! The chef was very nice to talk to, and has taken over as the new owner. The food was certainly the best we’d had in San Jose. It was a little pricey, but worth it, in my opinion.

Butterfly Farmer: We stopped for an early dinner. The tandoori chicken was excellent. It was very tender and juicy full of flavor. We also ordered the dal. The dal was also very nice. The naan was very good too. Finally we ordered a carrot halva for dessert. It was nice and hot and not too sugary sweet. Very very good. Our compliments to Chef Vivek. The chef came and met with us and was very personable. Highly recommend!! Vegetarian options: Lots of options on the menu.

ryan tucker: Chicken Tikka masala with butter naan was amazing. I mean legitimately makes you question all other Indian you have ever had. With enough left over to grab a side of rice and have some later in the evening. Cause even though you won't be hungry, you'll be thinking about it at home and go steal another bite out of the fridge. Yeah it's that good. Beautiful moon on the ceiling, and a really cool Ganesha I forgot to take a picture of.

Jon Shawcross: Edit: New owner Vivek has taken over since September and quality is just as good if not better than before. I have no idea why or how this restaurant is capable of consistently excellent lamb dishes that are tasty, tender and lean when the competition is the total opposite. I highly recommend the lamb labadhar, but we have eaten here many times and everything is always excellent Parking: Plenty of parking, especially in the evening as located at La Paco shopping centre

Stephanie Kwong: Go here!! The food was absolutely EPIC!! Met the owner of the restaurant, Avatar, he is absolutely amazing and super cool to hang out with - we ended up spending 4 hours there without noticing. Avatar created us two dishes not on the menu, one of which was a coconut based curry with fish (non-spicy, sweet and creamy) and the other was a super spicy chicken curry. Both were such amazing compliments to each other, I was able to eat both (one bite of coconut curry and one bite of super spicy; and normally i can not eat spicy!!). The flavors were so amazing, you could taste the different flavors in each bite as it slowly dissolved on your tongue one flavor at a time ... I can't even begin to describe how epic the dishes were. Let's also not forget the garlic naan ♥ My absolute 'boring' but FAVORITE dish ... mmm garlic naan. Lastly, you must absolutely try the PISTA KULFI (Indian style pistachio ice cream) and MANGO KULFI (Indian style mango ice cream). They are not just your regular ice cream, cut into tiny little cubes and served on a little plate, it may not look like much but it was the perfect amount of savory post-dinner sweetness. I can't even decide on which flavor i like more - maybe the mango - but both are good. Definitely recommend stopping by this place - there is plentiful parking out front in the plaza. The value for the quality and flavor of this place is reasonable and I have to say, I think I like this place more than Taj Mahal (around the corner). Both are good, but if I would definitely return here!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments about our restaurant, staff and food. We are glad that you enjoy our visit. We look forward to welcoming you soon. Thanks and Regards, Culinary Team, Avatar Indian Cuisine.

Taj Mahal - An Ethnic Indian Restaurant, Escazu, Estd 2002: what do users think?


alex castellanos: The service was wonderful and the food was out of this world!! I had heard good things from others who were staying in town and I’m so glad we made the quick trip there while we were staying at intercontinental in San Jose. The spice level was adjusted for me as a first timer, everything that was recommended was so much better than I could have ever imagined. This is a MUST if you’re in San Jose! We will be back!!! Also it was Diwali and they had everything lit up and let us do some fireworks while they cooked our food! So much attention to detail in every way! The ambiance is romantic and authentic and beautiful!!! Vegetarian options: Anything we needed they made available in vegetarian options as well as having an extensive vegetarian menu! Kid-friendliness: Our server was outstanding and went above and beyond to make us happy!!
Response: Thank you for your visit and for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for your valuable compliments on our food, service, and ambiance. We eagrely look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Gregory Ballash: This was an amazing find. Driving down the road I completely didn't expect it. It a super quiet, I didn't even know if it was open. When we went in and through the first dining room it opened into outside open air dating areas that were beautiful!! The food was authentic and delicious, and the atmosphere was phenomenal. Only one precaution, when playing with card the receipt was in Colones by they charged in US Dollars. The conversion used was not up to date so I laid more than I should've, about 15% more. I want too concerned but if you are keep eye out. Ask them for how much they'll be charging before swiping your card. I definitely will be returning here again!
Response: Thank you for your visit, giving us opportunity to serve you and for your valuable comments. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

A P: Tasty authentic Indian food and great service. I really enjoyed my meal there and would definitely go back soon! Dhamendar, my waiter took good care of me and was friendly! I ordered masala papadum, dal makhani, palak kofta, buttered naan, paneer tikka kebab & some cucumber raita.Food: 5/5 | Service: 5/5 | Atmosphere: 5/5 …More
Response: Thank you for your valuable visit, for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We also tank you for the compliments on our food and service team. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Ashleigh M: Have been coming here since 2008 and it's gotten better over the years. Great quality food, great portion for the price. They also have an original tandoor oven, which makes their food have that extra authentic flavor. Service was great as always and the atmosphere is beautiful, elegant and relaxing.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the complimenting our food, ambience and service. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Mihir Gupta: Everything from the tandoor was delicious! The cooks and the servers are mostly from India and do a great job. Our server Pooran Singh promptly served our food when we informed we were in a rush to catch a flight. Peacocks in the attached garden are a bonus!
Response: Many thanks for the opportunity to serve you Mihir ji and also for your kind compliments on our food, ambience, and service team. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

THE Vindaloo King: Wonderful experience and ambiance. Covers outdoor and indoor dining options with a grass yard and at least one peacock. Awesome, unique experience. Fabulous variety of Tika’s including pepper and mint. Also maybe 12-15 different naan’s. All good. 5-star restaurant but Vindaloo was not exceptional.
Response: Thank you for your visit, giving us opportunity to serve you. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Pura Vida & Namaste🙏🏼

Niro Tham: Some of the best indian food i've had in the world. Their mutton biryani is to die for. Very flavourful and even this lamb soup really hit the spot. Their butter chicken alongside the garlic naan, what more could a man ask for. Highly recommend this place. Even the scenery is beautiful as you have live peacocks runing around the establishment.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the compliments for our food and ambience. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Sreedevi Chandran: Taj Mahal offers a sumptuous feast to both eyes and stomach. The restaurant was adorned with a lot of Art, Statues and Furniture that expresses the values , traditions and cultures of INDIA. Most enticing were the Peacocks that put together a spectacular display while we enjoyed our food.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the compliments for our food and ambience. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Steven: Got delivery, butter chicken was my favorite, but paneer tikka and chicken tikka were both very flavorful, korma was spicy as opposed to savory which was interesting compared to the states Thank you everything was fantastic
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the compliments for our food and comments. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Richard Killy: The food was absolutely amazing!! We had the Curry Chicken, and the Lamb. Starting off with orders of Nann bread and Samosas. They were also amazing! The food is very tasty and flavorful. I will definitely be going back, and l highly recommend Taj Mahal!!! The atmosphere and service was excellent. You won't be disappointed!!

Meenakshi Jagdish: The food here was excellent! We didn’t expect it to be so good - an Indian restaurant in Costa Rica! The service was even better. Wonderful service by Mr. Vikram. A huge thanks to the chef for accommodating our request and making a dish off the menu!!! Highly recommend this place! Oh and their cocktails was amazing
Response: Thank you Meenakshi ji for the opportunity to serve you, for your kind compliments on our food, drinks, chefs and service team. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Julia Zanon: What a tasty experience! We were craving some Indian Food after watching "The Hundred-Foot Journey" and this was the first place that popped up after a quick google search. It had great reviews so we were keen to check it out. The whole experience was wonderful from start to end. We were greeted and taken care of extremely well by the staff. Service was outstanding thanks to Amrit! The food was so authentic and really delicious!!! The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very traditional. Will definitely be returning if we ever come back to San Jose. Thanks again for a great meal and evening :)
Response: Thank you for your visit, giving us opportunity to serve you. We also appreciate your kind compliments for our food, ambience and service. It would be our pleasure to welcome you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Kate Hayward: So good. We had the veggie samosas, chicken Tikka Masala and the coconut stuffed Naan. We ordered the Tikka masala with medium heat which was perfect. Everything was well prepared as were the three chutneys they brought to the table. The extra one, the spicey, was scotch bonnet hot. This is a place to bring a crowd so that you can share dishes. There were many on the menu that I wanted to try. I never seem to get photos of the actual meals because I become entranced when they arrive. Ah well.
Response: We thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your kind compliments for our food. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Debbie SALAZAR: We started out the new year by treating ourselves to Indian food from our local Indian restaurant. Naans & Curries had a special menu on New Year's day featuring street food. There were numerous small plates for sharing to choose from and we had no idea what most were so we relied on our waiter for recommendations. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. Our waiter made excellent recommendations and the setting and service was phenomenal. We will be back to try more of their regular menu.

Lu Alfaro: Manoj was an excellent person helping us and well coming us with excellent excellent people skills. He was very nice and the food was amazing. 😊we will come back for dessert as we couldn’t handle one more bite after the feast we ordered.
Response: Thank you Lu for the opportunity to serve you and for your kind compliments. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Harsh Patel: This is our first time in Costa Rica and we had our first day lunch at Naans and Curries. We are so glad that we did. The food was so delicious and fresh, with great service. Vikram was very helpful in suggesting and recommending what to eat. Definitely recommend visiting.Recommended dishes Palak Paneer, Naan …More

Grishma Patel: PERFECT SPOT FOR AN INDIAN FOOD FIX!!!! We went here prior to starting our long vacation in Costa Rica! This place has authentic Indian food. The staff was welcoming. Out door seating & WiFi was available! We were very satisfied and ended up going twice!
Response: Thank you for your visit, giving us opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the compliments for our food and service. Looking forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste

GoryeoElement: Since 2013 the best among the best in the area and around the world 🙏🏻🇮🇳
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your kind compliments. The entire team of Naans & Curries, look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

M G: Great authentic Indian food. As an Indian myself I was impressed on how much the food resembled the tastes of India. I have been here a couple times and have been very satisfied. There are many vegetarian options too if you are vegetarian. Try out the Shahi paneer or the palak paneer. You won't regret it.
Response: Thank you for your visit, and for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for your kind words. It means a lot when a fellow Indian also compliments. It is indeed our honour to serve best of Indian cuisine. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Jen Siyo-Wing: Unfortunately, their "Vegan Friendly" menu is not so. Ordered every item from their plant based menu as I am extremely allergic to dairy, this obviously includes ghee. Ordered the Soya Chaap Masala, and specified to cook with vegetable oil. When our order arrived, the receipt said "Request to cook with ghee; pure natural, tasty and healthy" as well as "Cooked with vegetable oil" under it. This was confusing, but I assumed the specification was noted, and considering it was on the vegan menu, assumed it was fine. As soon as I took a few bites I began to feel ill, and remained ill for days!! If you're going to have a vegan menu, you MUST ensure it is in fact FREE of animal products, and NOT cooked in the same cookware where ghee or animals have been cooked! Besides this, pakora and Chana masala were very salty, oily, and over-spiced; (not referring to hotness level, but it tasted like a whole container of spices was used for one dish) Please be mindful if you have allergies and choose to eat here, or save yourself the trouble and don't bother.
Response: Thank you giving us opportunity to serve you and for your valuable feedback. Seems you ordered on some delivery plateform and missed to speciy allergies. Yes, our chefs are well prepared to make dishes as per dieterry requirements, if informed. In fact, we also have fresh baked Naan breads (without butter, without egg & without yeast), which are loved by our esteemed guests, preferring vegan dishes. We look forward to welcoming you at our restaurant and serving you dishes, strictly as per your dietery requirements. Namaste

Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant: what do users think?


Micky Riddell: Outstanding food, large portions and great service. One of the best Indian curries we have had for a long time. Good range of choices on the menu, including vegetarian 🌱. The focus is on flavour and not heat/spice, however they were very accommodating if you want to add some heat!! Probably don’t need a starter, as they are huge! Would recommend.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the complimenting our food. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Tom Dwenger: Very friendly staff and food did not disappoint. I've been to Malaysia and a few other countries and this was up there with some of the best Indian food I've had. Ordered it medium spicy and was perfect level for me. I like things to be a little spicy then most. Had the chicken Tikka masala with cumin rice and cheese naan. For dessert had the Pusta Kulfi which was equally as good. Definitely will be back on my next business trip. Vegetarian options: Lots of vegetarian options available.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you Tom. We also thank you for the compliments on our food. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Aaron Morris: Who would have thought the best Indian food was hiding in Costa Rica. My wife and I were blown away by the quality and attention to detail. Everything we ordered was of the highest quality and made using the best and freshest ingredients. Our server was spectacular and very personable. We live in Vancouver BC and have access to some great Indian food considering that we have the largest Indian population outside of India but this put our food to shame. You don't want to pass on this restaurant. They have 5 stars for a reason. They deserve more in my humble opinion.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for your kind compliments for our food and service team. Looking forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Jennifer Adams: Oh my gosh! This was some of the best Indian food I ever had. The service was amazing. They also have organic tempranillo and malbec wines. There are options for everyone. We had a vegan lunch that was just out of this world.

jetfuel79: Simply fantastic Indian cuisine. While Indian food may not be what comes to mind when you visit CR I highly recommend this well established restaurant. Quite impressed with everything from the decor to table settings to the servers. Food was superb.

Ashley Minyard: I had a wonderful lunch and the service was exceptional. The décor is modern and gorgeous. It is a little pricey and the items are all a la carte even the rice. Maybe they can eventually offer smaller lunch plates with a main and some rice. Oh the mint sauce is very flavorful and complemented the food I ordered really well.
Response: Thank you for your visit, giving us opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the compliments for our food and ambience. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Akshay Pallerla: One of the most reliable Indian restaurants in Costa Rica. Service is amazing. Location is very well thought of for folks in Cariari. Parking facility is available. A bit expensive though. There is one entrance that doesn't need climbing stairs so it's accessible via wheelchair. Pro tip : Indian customers - be very explicit on the spice levels. Since the restaurant tries to cater the spice levels to the locals.

P P: This is one of the best Indian restaurants we have been to. The food was excellent and the location was very convenient. It is very beautifully decorated. Our stay in Costa Rica was made even more pleasant by their hospitality and food. Their staff was courteous and pleasant. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and couple of times made dishes that were not on the menu as we were missing home food. Krishna and few other in the staff always tried their best to treat us as family and chef Gabbar did his best to make dishes to our taste. Over all a very pleasant experience and made our stay extra special. We highly recommend this place.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for the compliments for our food, ambience and team. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

Monte Williams: I live in California in the United States, where good Indian food is plentiful, plus I once lived for a year in the Punjab region of Pakistan, and yet I want to share that the most amazing and authentic Indian food I have ever tasted is available in a shopping mall in Heredia, Costa Rica of all places. Taj Mahal's food is INCREDIBLE! For appetizers/starters, I had the Samosas and Fig Kabab, and my main course was the Malai Kofta, extra spicy and with a side of naan. The naan was as thick, warm, and soft as paratha, and the sauces were among the best I have ever tasted. I followed it with some Kulfi, which was as refreshing as it was delicious. I learned that the family who runs Taj Mahal is from India, and they have many years of experience as chefs, which is not surprising if you have the good fortune to taste their food. I also want to add that the service at Taj Mahal is every bit as great as the food, with friendly, courteous, solicitous staff. If you are hesitant (as I was) to waste your valuable time in Costa Rica visiting a shopping mall, or if you worry (as I did) that Costa Rica's take on Indian food could not possibly meet your high standards for authenticity, I am here to tell you that I have never regretted a meal less than the wonderful dinner I enjoyed at Taj Mahal. Vegetarian options: Taj Mahal has an entire section of their menu devoted to vegetarian fare. The options are varied and plentiful!

Jessi Bland: This is honestly probably the best Indian food I’ve ever had. And I’ve had a lot of Indian food!! I was a little unsure about having Indian food in Costa Rica but once I read the reviews I decided to give it a try and I am so so happy I did. It is SO good. The staff is so friendly and it was made quick and deliciously! I took it to go and picked it up fresh and hot. Could not recommend this spot more and I will definitely be back the next time I’m in San Jose! I got the garlic naan, butter chicken and jasmine rice :)

John “Jack” Russell: I have eaten in tons of Indian places in Chicago and more recently Denver. This was the best, which was an awesome surprise being in Costa Rica. The other three I was with (all from Chicago but now live across the US) agreed that it was the best they’ve had, no joke. Speaking with the guys who run the place and they have been open for two years, and in Costa Rica during covid could not have been easy. Final note - flavors of the dishes were outstanding.

Jason Stein: We went here first a year ago on our last night in CR before flying back. My family had not had Indian food a lot. The owner served us and was very friendly and suggested some dishes. Everything was delicious, the naan bread so good. We all loved it. Even my kids 7 and 9 at the time. Tonight we returned a year later and again loved it. Everything was again super tasty. I would highly recommend this place. The same guy served us again. He said he moved to CR from India 3 years ago and we let him know the entire family loved his food. Try this place, it’s great. We loved the korma, butter chicken and mutton vindaloo!

Kevin Leep: The food was incredible. Best Indian food I’ve ever had. My wife ordered a delicious mango lassi. We shared cheese naan, vegetable Kormi, and paneer tikka masala it was all so flavorful and made for an unforgettable meal. The service was helpful and attentive. We stayed at the Marriot and walked over, we will be back.

indu Prasadh: Amazing Indian food served with warm hospitality in a nice ambience - our server Suthan made it a memorable experience with his recommendations and suggestions, based on our children’s likings

Sabrina Shee: Really awesome Indian food and the people who work here are super kind and quick. We picked up Indian food to go since we were catching a flight and they packed our food so nicely and kept it warm. Thank you so much for the delicious meal!

Azrull Izham Mohd Khair: We having a recommendation to dine-in here recently.Nice food with authentic Indian flavor.Naan garlic and shrimp briyani were fantastic. Not to forget the Mango lassi too. Recommended for Asian traveller who hunger for home food.

Jesse Charles: I love Indian cuisine. This is in the top 2 best places I have ever eaten.The korma is perfect.Would definitely go out of my way ti eat here again.My only regret Is that I didn’t have more space in my belly

Daileny Guerrero: The food is so delicious and authentic! The chef is from India. We came two days in a row. The waitresses are extremely friendly and we felt right at home here. Plus, we love the Bollywood videos playing in the background.

Neha Sukhija: Very tasty Indian food and reasonably priced! The chicken biryani and chicken lehsuni were delicious! The staff was very welcoming and professional! The chef came over to speak to us and thanked us for our visit! Highly recommend!

James Ellsworth: I like trying Indian foods everywhere I travel. Costa Rica isn’t a place that screams “good Indian food” but this place nailed it. I highly recommend you try it. If you do, you MUST get the Coconut Pistachio Naan (it is life changing), Mango Lassi, then close your eyes and select a dish at random and enjoy. Shinde was our server and treated us like royalty. Very attentive and friendly.

Deyna Bonilla: Excelent service, the waiters are very kind and they take the time to explain everything you ask them. They will also give you a whole cultural experience, teaching you the way people traditionally eat in India, and recommending you the best dishes based on your preferences. They really take good care of the client and do their best to give you an amazing experience. It was my first time trying out indian food and it was delicious! really enjoyed the experience! Vegetarian options: They have a lot of vegetarian options in the menu. Dietary restrictions: They have a special icon so people that is lactose intolerant know which dish they should avoid, they also have another icon to know which dishes on the menu are gluten free. They are also very mindful of the preferences you asked them, so if you ask they will give not spicy food (or spicy of that is what you prefer)
Response: Thank you for your visit, and for giving us the opportunity to serve you Deyna. We also thank you for your kind comploments on our food and for our service team. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

ERICKA RODRIGUEZ: Our party of 3 has never experienced Indian food . We didn’t know what to expect . We are three foreigners living in Costa Rica . Never had we been treated so nicely , attentively and ate such exquisite cuisine . Shinde went above and beyond to explain , advise , suggest and be at our service at all times without under-minding other guests . 💯 percent recommended . Amazing food amazing service .

Priti Ahuja: This is hands down the BEST Indian restaurant in Costa Rica and we tried a few. In fact, we drove an hour out of our way to have Naans & Curries on our last night in CR. We loved it so much that I am writing my first ever google review to support them. Shindayji customized our orders to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences. The chef (Mohit?) made a couple of dishes that we requested which were not on the menu. The food tasted like it does in India. Everything was fresh and delicious. The chai is authentic as well as the desserts. They took great care of us, and it was exactly what we needed! It's worth the drive even if you are not staying in the area. We can't wait to go back!
Response: Thank you for your visit, and for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for your kind compliments on our food and our service team. We are humbled. We eagerly look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Puravida & Namaste🙏🏼

Nelly A: Highly Recommended! This is REAL authentic Indian food. I received an amazing hospitality by Shindey. His service was exceptional and attentive. Chefs are native from India, so the quality of the food is really good and I loved how they know how to represent properly Indian cuisine for example: decoration, dress code, food/beverage names on menu. I was impressed how they take care of those details! Thank you so much for this experience Shindey!!
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We also thank you for your compliments on our food and our service team. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

dan andro: Excelent, excelent Indian food! I was conservative and ordered the Chana Masala, bryani rice and garlic Naan not knowing what to expect and WOOW was I surprised. Amazing flavor, exactly like in my travels in India, or the Indian restaurants I frequent in Toronto. Great presentation and service, food came very quick. I did not expect to find such a gem in Ciudad Colon. Highly recommend! I look forward to come back and try the curries 😊✨🙌

Anette Jordan: Chef Armaan makes THE best Indian food, no doubt. The spices are perfect, the sauces creamy and the rice cooked to perfection. 5 Stars!!!

Alejandro Jiménez Mora: Costa Rica has no better place to experience this type of food.Armaan is a real Chef dedicated to his patrons and business.

Juan Sanchez: We enjoy very much the Indian Flavors. Typical Indian dishes so well done. Thank you Arman. I will definetely come back. Recommend it 100%.

Lou: Not super authentic but good and tasty. Good value.

Antonio Matamoros: Delicious! Not as spicy as I remember Indian Cuisine, which makes it perfect for first timers, delicious nonetheless.

Paul: Great hospitality . Arjun is an amazing host. Food is good . We had Daal tadka, aloo gobi matar , tandoori roti and steamed rice. Taste was good . The chutneys are yummy. But the daal was very spicy for a medium spice level. I would advise the owner to take care of the spice level because my spice level is high and even my stomach was hurting after finishing the Daal . Tip for food lover - When you go this place for lunch or diner , please opt for low spice option to enjoy the food thoroughly.

Monika Orias: Excellent food People in Costa Rica usually mentions this type of food is too spicy but it is not!!! It’s packed with flavor which is amazing!!! My husband and I tried the Visa Nights menu and everything from beverages to desert was just fresh super hot perfectly served and full of new flavors and textures. Definitely will visit again Recommended for all those looking for new rich and unforgettable flavors to try.

Jacob Deklerk: Wonderful Indian restaurant right by the San Jose Airport. They have an indoor/outdoor seating (all covered). The restaurant is in a open strip mall with surrounding restaurants, but feels like a fancy Indian restaurant. The service was great and the staff were very clean. We ordered the chicken tikka marsala and butter chicken. Rice is an extra charge. The food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend 👌
Response: Thank you for your visit, giving us opportunity to serve you. We also gladly noted your compliments. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon. Namaste

LD_travels: The food is good, but it’s not worth the price. In Germany the same dinner we ordered would have cost us at least $20 less in total. We payed $30 each, times 3 (don’t forget we are still in Latin-America). The food doesn’t come with rice or anything, and a portion of rice costs around $6,50 for the plain version. At the bottom of the menu it says 13% tax & 10% tip on top. The service was great but we prefer choosing how much we tip rather than having it added to the bill directly. Wouldn’t eat there again because of the price-performance ratio.

Rupen Parikh: Loved the food, ambience and the service. Spices, Chutneys were yummy. We miss such an awesome food in San Francisco Bay Area. Full credit to the chef, owner and the staff.

Sam Venkatesan: Went for dinner during the holidays. Excellent food, great service and nice location. Taj is another example of the high quality of Indian cuisine in Costa Rica vis-a-vis USA. Menu is Punjabi and you get the typical fare. The dal tadka, mixed vegetables and paneer Tikka masala were outstanding. We ordered less spicy based on previous reviews and the restaurant honored it. The rotis and naans were good but could have been better. Naan was rubbery. The free starter was good. Service was exemplary and food arrived at a reasonable time. It was pricy though which is expected in the capital city and with the mall location.

treasure hunter5613: The res vindaloo has no favor. I ordered indian hot and guess what no spice at all. Thats supposed to be the hottest. Glad i wasted 30 dollars on this. This isn't my first time ordering Indian food. I even had homemade Indian food last week with my buddies from india so i got some idea of what the spice level should be. I remember my first time ordering Indian food and the guy asked me if i like my food spicey and i said i love spicey foods and he recommended i get medium.
Response: Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and for your kind comments. It seems we could not take note of your spice level preference. Apologies. Our team of Indian Chefs generally prepare - Indian spicy, spicy, medium spicy, and no spice - levels, as per the preference of our valuable guests. We would be glad to prepare the dish as per your preference, next time. Looking forward to your next order, soon. Namaste🙏🏼

The menu has a lot of options, several of which are vegetarian, including main dishes and appetizers. The food was great, and the prices are affordable. We tried some wine and margaritas and they were pretty good ( they gave us the wine as a courtesy because of the dishes we ordered). There is no parking space directly in front of the place, but there is a cheap public parking a couple buildings away. Overall had a great experience, loved the place and would absolutely recommend it!

B Davis: We have no idea how this restaurant has the reviews it does. We traveled all over Costa Rica for 2 weeks and this was the worst meal we had the entire time. We also traveled extensively for months through Southeast Asia and had a lot of authentic food - this was worse than we could have cooked at home. We ordered Tin Jo Special, Korean Chicken and Orange Chicken. All of the sauces were gelatinous and worse than you can buy from a jar in a supermarket in the US. The chicken dishes were barely fried, just soft, mushy breading covered in disgusting sauce. The kitchen didn’t even bother to sprinkle the orange chicken with sesame seeds. Seems to us like the restaurant is lazy, working off their good reviews they received years ago but doing nothing to upkeep them. Even the rice was poorly cooked, clumpy and cold. The drinks were good. The sangria was delicious and so was the tamarind soda. Also the decor was nice, and rooms with decor from different countries was creative. But as far as the food goes, trying to recreate dishes from so many countries well, can be difficult and this restaurant can’t do it. If you come to this area of town and are looking for a great, authentic place to eat, the Argentine place a street away is mind blowing by comparison.

Lucie Švamberová: The interior is super nice, the staff is super nice, but oh god that was the blandest Asian food I've had in my life. The cocktails were the best part, the sushi was okay but the rice could use more flavoring, and the Pad Thai definitely looked like Pad Thai but tasted nothing like it. At least they cared if we liked the food and why we weren't satisfied though, like I said the staff was nice, but the food was quite disappointing... Vegetarian options: Very good
Response: Lucie thank you very much for your comment, we take it from a place of love for Tin jo as it helps us to improve. Thank you very much for highlighting good and not so good things about your visit, I would really love to be able to make it up to you on a next visit. I am very sorry that you did not fully enjoy, I hope to have the opportunity to have you visit us again. Greetings.

Bryan Astua: I’m just amazed not only by the food quality but also about the whole experience. This is a multicultural restaurant, menu and ambiance. The host Allen is an extremely attentive person and gave us a guided tour through the restaurant. I’m for sure going to recommend this restaurant to my friends and family

Vincent Joseph: Excellent choice of Asian foods: menu organized by country and style of foods with clear selection of spice level (from none, to mild to extra hot). Good ambiance in each room.

Howard Blum: We went there for lunch today after talking about going there for over 2 years.It's now one of a handful of restaurants in San José I consider fine dining and the atmosphere and service is special.

A C: Really good food, but today they messed up badly on service. They sent food to one of 5 people first. Then took over an hour to bring the appetizers that should have arrived first. We talked to them about 4 times to check on the food and it still took forever. The first person had finished her food and was ordering dessert by the time our arrived. Very disappointed.

John Davison: What a great selection of vegetarian dishes! I chose the Sichuan mapo tofu with passionfruit juice (an ideal combination!)
Response: Thank you very much for your comment, it fills our hearts with joy that you enjoy our mapo tofu, we remind you that every Monday is vegetarian Monday, so all our vegetarian menu is at a 20% discount.

diahanne esna: Best service I've seen, loved the food. The garden is super relaxing and nice. You get more than you paid for. Which is unusual. Highly recommended. Few places (if any) leave 100% satisfied, this one did 🙏🏿Food: 5/5 | Service: 5/5 | Atmosphere: 5/5 …More
Response: Diahanne it is a pleasure to serve you, really thank you very much for coming and enjoying with Tin Jo, a hug!!!

Jason Goldsberry: Ambiance, service were excellent. One of the most visually interesting places I've eaten in Costa Rica. I thought the prices were reasonable, about average. Food was good, but not amazing. Certainly worth another visit
Response: Thank you very much for your feedback, for our servers it is always a pleasure to serve you, we are also very happy that you enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, we hope that on your next visit the food is also amazing, for that, feel free to tell us what we can do to enhance your experience.

Kishan Sharma: The hotel looks very nice as well as it recipes I will never forgotten such a delicious food I am thanking all thechefs of this resturant to prepare such a good food for customers kreply it up .☺

M Guillen: Lassi was just a glass of milk with ice. Food ok but not to pay CRC13000 for one cup of curry with naan for one person. My first and last visit.

Kai Cimmino: Dinner was delicious! We started with samosas which came with a side of veggies, like a fresh coleslaw. The sauces it came with were perfect. The palak paneer and the daal tadka had great flavor. We were “mmmm”ing every bite. The cheese was so fresh and melted in your mouth. I would rate this a top Indian restaurant, in all my experiences. (I wish we had one in our area of the US!) Our server was excellent as well — he kindly brought us a sample of a sweet shredded carrot and almond dessert which was divine! Thank you, thank you.

Shreyansh Shrivastava: Authentic indian food. Delicious brunch thaali. Budget friendly. Highly recommended

Tom Moffat: My wife and I came here after searching for some local Indian food and we were not disappointed! We’re here on vacation and Raul made us feel at home, along with the amazing food they served us. We highly recommend!

Rani Shah: Incredible Indian food in the middle of San Jose, CR. Everything from the lassi to the nimbu Pani to the naan to the kofta and paneer sabji was super tasty and flavorful. Our server Raul was friendly and super helpful as well!
