While the seating capacity is quite limited, we would suggest take away during peak hours. Food here is authentic and tastes great, although we would say it is a little pricey for its serving portion.
4. Kashmir Indian Restaurant
Kashmir is one of Manila’s oldest Indian restaurants and has been around since 1976. Kashmir was started in Manila by three sisters: Situ, Kamla and Indra. Together with their families, they started an Indian restaurant that would feed, host and become the favorite Indian restaurant in Manila for decades to come. Forty five years after its founding, the legacy of Kashmir lives on.
They have a wide variety of vegetarian and non-veg options in their menu.

They are available for order on Food Panda and Grab Food too.

9. Annapoorna Philippines
Annapoorna Philippines serves authentic South Indian food with a wide range of options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Located within Gateway Regency condominium, it is accessible from Robinsons Pioneer mall as well. If you’re in Mandaluyong area and craves for Indian food, Annapoorna is a good option. They have very good customer service and a feel-good ambiance.
10. Big Mummy's
They offer individual meals that are very affordable. However, we must say that the taste is not quite up to par if we are talking about flavor and authenticity. Their Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Biryani, tastes ordinary and lacking in flavor. If you are craving for Indian food and is on a budget, then Big Mummy’s might be the place to go.
