Who Knew Delicious Indian Food Can Be Found in Portugal!

I was staying nearby and when I saw the Trip Advisor logo on their door I decided to get takeaway for dinner. I had the chicken curry with potatoes. It was delicious and the portion generous. The young ladies waiting on customers were friendly and made certain to ask my spice tolerance level. I... read more

Food was terrible and the ambience and staff not friendly or keen to rectify!! They have a don't care attitude weather customer likes their food or not😔 We ordered Chilli planner and Tamarind special assorted vegetarian starters, which was so awful 😁😁 On commenting about Panner pieces being very less, they did not even bother to answer least bit apologetic...

After a long day of touring about, we had a hankering for Indian food. After looking at trip advisor and confirming with our concierge we decided to try Tamarind. Very good food in a smallish but quaint setting. Kids absolutely enjoyed and I completely over ate. So good, we returned the next night for a late meal.

After you've spent a considerable time in Lisbon and are looking for something other than Portuguese food - you start to get curious to what's out there. Tamarind was a fantastic find. Dinner for two (two starters, two meals, no alcohol) for €30. The menu is extensive and there are a lot of wonderful wines and liquors on the menu... More

After reading all the excellent reviews we thought we were in for a real treat. We chose onion bhajis for starters and they were excellent, but it went downhill from there. The naan bread was stodgy, the rice was tasteless and the curry was flavourless. On the bright side, the service was excellent; it was just a shame they were... More

I'd looked it up on TA and wanted to try it out. First day was a chilly one that called for spicy food and Tamarind was the call. No regrets; wonderful ambience (sans the usual kitsch), soft music, very friendly service with a smile, and excellent food. I'd flag it as one of the best outside of India. Chef, you... More
