Lots of choices, all freshly prepared and spiced as you like, good prices, fast service and a nice view of the new bridge over the lagoon. Portions are getting smaller over the years though. If it's holiday season or a saturday night be sure to...More

Being English we are picky about our curry (it is after all our national dish) this did not fail to impress, great menu, great fresh flavours, great service and an amazing mango lassi to boot. Loved this place, highly recommend and will be back

A really nice curry cooked to our taste - flavourful without being overpowering. Starters of veg and meat samosas also recommended.

We love it; it is very relaxed / informal but the clear focus is on consistently excellent Indian food. Chicken Tika, Butter Chicken, a few varieties of naan, Chicken Korma, basmati rice -- we could have spent the entire night. WONDERFUL stuff! Go!

We asked around the island and everyone told us Lal's was the best Indian food - accolades were correct. Small place behind a market. Easy the find. Fresh authentic Indian food.

Lal's was the first Indian cuisine we tried when we first moved to St. Maarten and it was OK. But when you compare it to the other Indian restaurants on the island (such as Bombay Bites, Shiv Shakti, etc.), Lal's takes last place in my...More
