Indian food is a cuisine known for its heavy use of diverse spices rooted in religious and cultural beliefs and traditions. I didn’t explore Indian cuisine until I was older. I wasn’t too impressed with how the dishes were presented and I wasn’t always a fan of spicy food. So, boy, was I surprised and overwhelmed with joy when I tasted curry for the first time. It was a moment of inexplicable awe wondering how a dish could have so many flavors.
That’s when my fascination for Indian cuisine started. Now I think it’s time I share some of the reasons why you should try Indian cuisine—and no less than one of the best places to try it at: Naan.
5 Reasons to Try Indian Food at Naan
5. Be prepared with generous servings.
Filipinos love huge servings. So don’t worry because Naan’s serving size won’t disappoint. If you’re worried about the price, that’s another thing you can stop worrying about because the cost won’t break the bank. Affordable Indian food at a budget-friendly price!

4. They use legit Indian spices.
As I mentioned, the stronghold of Indian cuisine is their spices. After having tried a lot of Indian restaurants, I’ve grown to acquire the skill of knowing if they’re doing shortcuts when it comes to spices. Fortunately, you won’t have that qualm when trying out their dishes as everything is as authentic as can be. Try their Grilled Chicken Tikka Masala for starters!

3. Enjoy street-style dining!
If you want an all-out authentic dining experience, Naan is definitely the place to go. Not only will you be amazed by the colourful interiors reminiscent of India’s colourful culture; you’ll also get to enjoy straight-up good Indian food street-style!
2. Their samosa are divine.
A samosa is a fried or baked dish typically with a savory filling like spiced potatoes, onions, and lentils. At Naan, they make their own samosas from scratch – from the dough to the filling! Of course, they keep up with the trends, too. Not only do they offer savory samosas, they also have Choco Mallow Samosas! Imagine Jollibee’s Choco Mallow Pie, but encased in a buttery and crispy samosa dough topped with pistachio ice cream—heaven!

1. You can have beer there, too.
Am I the only one who’s excited about this? It’s not everyday you get to marry the two loves of your lives! Admittedly, Indian food can be pretty heavy to the tummy, especially if you’ll be devouring that plate of lamb chops that’s actually good for two.
Even if you just want to chill, Naan is still the perfect place to go if you’ve been craving for 2 botts after work. Make sure you pair it with their Mumbai fries – I promise you: there’s no turning back.

If you’re someone who hasn’t ever tried Indian cuisine in your entire existence, I highly suggest you head on over to Naan. I’ll guarantee you’ll have that same inexplicable awe I had when I tasted my first ever curry. Have fun!
