I found Ko Ox Han Nah just looking around on Google maps and I just started randomly clicking on the restaurant icons. I don’t put too much stock in what people say online but I was hungry, tired, and just wanted to eat and go to bed. It turned out to be a very good decision.
Like many of the restaurants in San Ignacio, this is a small space but the food packs a serious punch. I had heard this place can get pretty crowded (and the 2nd night, it was packed) but my first night there, the place was relatively empty.
I asked for a recommendation and was told the lamb curry was good. It wasn’t good. It was freaking delicious. I did have my doubts of eating a hot dish especially when it was so warm but I got over it pretty quickly. There was just too much flavor to ignore. The whole meal cost was $18 BZD ($9 USD). If all my meals in San Ignacio or Belize were like this, I’d be leaving very full and very spoiled. Sadly, they weren’t.
For the location, I thought the prices were pretty decent. I was expecting prices to be a little higher since it is in the “downtown” portion of San Igancio. (Although it’s about 2 blocks down the main drag so maybe that has something to do with it.)
I would recommend that you visit during the off times if you have a large group for sure. The 2nd time I didn’t bother waiting around since I was sort of in a rush. I was there during the off season and it was still packed.
