Probably the best Indian restaurant in Cancun with one of the best spot in town! It was very beautiful and very good food!
Very expensive and very little choice on the menu 15% service charge automatically added to the bill. Lovely location for a meal though.
2nd visit and still good.
The food here is just amazing. It just lacks some atmosphere. There never seems to be many people there when we go. Maybe we are going at the wrong time.
Other restaurants we have vitiated have been packed.
Was on holiday in cancun and came across this wonderful Indian restaurant in la Isla mall.
Great food and surroundings was beautiful.
Staff was excellent and drinks was very nice.
Would definitely come back to this place again.
Great dining on Cancun! My boyfriend and I went twice during our trip. The ambience was really nice with over-water seating that feels very private. The food was excellent - try the lychee martini.
Food was amazing. Service and ambiance was top notch.
Service is not up to par with Cancun hospitality. The food is mediocre at best.
The best part of this dining experience is the location right on the lagoon. Highly romantic in the evening with its low level lighting. Plus a perfect sunset viewing location assuming you don’t get the table behind the tree.
While such great service as co-owned Thai that is adjacent to elefante, the experience was a real let down. We were looking forward to some authentic Indian food and the other patrons gave us confidence in a pretty setting. Unfortunately, when the apps came they were all lukewarm at best. We tolerated this but when our main courses came out also lukewarm, I had some concern that the food wasn’t cooked enough. Our waiter pretty much disappeared after the apps with servers bringing the food so he only returned after we complained. Finally, another chicken dish and naan came out piping hot but why didn’t this happen beforehand. The waiter gave us a 10% discount to try and make up for it but it was pretty ridiculous that he also added a 15% mandatory tip. No one did get sick and the food was okay but the experience wasn’t
Food was great. A bit pricey. They didn’t give us a table by the lagoon, and table wasn’t ready when we got there even though we made a reservation.
Overall a nice place for much needed Indian food :)
Lovely setting along the lagoon. We arrived at sunset so the colours of the sky reflecting on the water were very beautiful. We were seated in a private booth so it was quiet and peaceful. The ambiance was highlighted by the soft lighting at night. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We would definitely return on our next vacation in Cancun. We noticed there were a few mosquitoes biting our legs so the staff brought us bug repellant and coverings for our legs immediately.
Excelente comida, ambiente, servicio y atención. Sin duda alguna un lugar recomendado para tener una cena agradable.
Great location!! The view and the food was excellent! The quality and the taste of the food was excellent!
Inexperienced waiter. Food quality is poor. Chicken was not fresh. If you are looking for tasty Indian food look elsewhere.
1st time. Wow a great experience. The setting is beautiful. We had a table right over the water. The servers were excellent. The white wine list is very poor. We found something barely drinkable that brought down the taste of the food. However we will bring our own wine next time. I would highly recommend this fine restaurant.
Very enjoyable exspirance. Food delicious. Service with a smile. Would go again
I really wished that the food would match the service and the ambience...
Every time we visit Cancun, we always make it a point to go Elephanta! Great food and great Ambience!
Food was excellent really enjoyed this! Recommend to everyone !
Very good service, excellent food, if you like spicy! We enjoyed the ambiance and had wonderful dinner.
Shrimp with coconut sauce were the best.
Amazing food and amazing service. A bit more expensive than the pub restaurants in the area but definitely worth it! Perfect for watching the sunset.
Great spot on the water. Surprised by the authentic Indian flavors being served.
Delicious food. We were seated quickly (wasnt busy) and service was good. Pleasant experience and prices were great!
El mejor restaurante de comida Hindú en Cancún. Deliciosos platillos vegetarianos con una espectacular vista a la laguna.
Food was good at best. The waitress did not know anything about their wines . It was a special occasion and they were going to overcharge me by 50 dollars for an item that we did not get . If I hadn't caught it because it is difficult to tell they don't always put in the correct items ordered. Oh and the tip is already included. Which irked me. They refunded the overcharge and gave m part of the tip back but at the end of a meal spending that much time to correct really ruins the night.
I wouldn't recommend and would not go back to eat there. The busboy was actually nice and more knowledgeable than the waitress. We did leave him a separate tip .
This place never fails to deliver. I love the location on the lagoon side. If you go try to get a water side table. The Indian food is always very tasty. Tried the new Sushi menu this time and it was great. Every time we go we are always so impressed with how friendly and helpful the wait staff are.
second visit this week...simply awesome .
Food, service, view...did not disappoint,
Super friendly staff
Prices on par with other restaurants
Great water front location
Great location, by the waters,serene ambiance and amazing food.
Set right on the lagoon, beautiful view at sunset, lovely ambiance and can do shopping and walking around in the fancy La Isla mall in Cancun where it is located.
Wait staff were not attentive. Never filled water glass. When serving us, they would be talking amongst themselves instead of engaging us in conversation.
Restaurant has an excellent location on the lagoon and takes full advantage of it. The menu has a good variety of selections and the portions are reasonably sized and have authentic flavors. The watermelon mojito I had was very delicious. The service is relatively attentive and there were no issues with language barriers. The overall value is tremendous, considering you can easily spend just as much on popular chain setup in the States that only gives you a view of a neighboring half vacant strip mall while serving less flavorful food.
Great food in a great surrounding. Love the Dahl!!!
Wonderful experience! Several dishes were among the best we have ever had at an Indian restaurant.
We come here every time we are in Cancun. The dal is always delicious, and I love the bite sized samosas, with just enough heat to make them interesting. The view over the lagoon is lovely, and the service is always good.
Description of food on the menu is not accurate. Wine on the list was not the wine served. The food was good, but I can't recommend a restaurant that doesn't live up to its menu or keep its wine list up to date.
You don't usually think about Indian Cuisine in a resort spot like Cancun Mexico Hotel District. We decided to do something that we have never done before and made a reservation on OpenTable for Elephanta located in the super exclusive La Isla Shopping Village. Elephanta was a fabulous dining experience. We had the Tandoori Rack of Lamb which was a first and it was exquisitely seasoned and perfectly cooked medium rare and sliced into 6 chops. The Chicken Tiki Masala was the best we have ever had anywhere in the country. You have to try the 24-hour simmered lentils - they were amazing.
An amazing meal and view, will be back next time I'm in Cancún. The service was fantastic and so was the food - an amazing selection of vegetarian/vegan options. Try and get a table before 6pm to catch the sun setting as you dine - what an experience. Special commendations to waiters Jair and Magdiel.
We love Indian food and were extremely impressed with the authentic flavors and lovely presentation of our food. The setting here is enchanting.
Nice combination of Indian and Sushi!! We ate at Thai next door with same ownership. We found this was a better value. They gave us a free drink at both but the drink was rather dreadful. However, the food was really good and we left with a smile. Both tables on the lagoon and others had a great feel!
Exceptional ambience, great food and very classy. Delighted to find an Indian restaurant in Cancun.
