Best outside uk

We had a very good, fresh meal here with friendly service and very reasonable prices. This is the best curry we have had outside the uk and better than a lot in the uk! Highly recommended. Michael, Nottingham.

While visiting Lisbon, we noticed this small restaurant right up the street from our hotel. The food was excellent as was the service. Often we find that Indian food in the US is heavy on oil, but this chef has a light touch and every dish was excellent. We had the lamb and apricots, chicken madras, and cumin rice. We... More

If you are into Indian food this restaurant is among the best around, and certainly the best in Lisbon. The staff are a delight. The food is authentic/genuine well presented Indian. the tandoori prawn starter to die for. The dishes which you can influence the strength of the currry, are flavoursome and you can identify the component flavours....very, very good.... More

Meal for four, midweek. Attentive service and good quality food with helpful staff and all with a cheery disposition. We were very happy and felt that we would quite happily return. As we varied in how spicy we each enjoyed our food we were brought small pots of curry paste to make our individual dishes as mild/hot as we each... More

All the 3 waiters were very friendly but they didn't speak or understand portuguese and beacause of that, they brought orders that we didn't order and they were unable to talk about the menu options. The restaurant is too tiny as well as the tables and seats. The food was good (but not very good) and the overall meal was... More

Wanted to finally try Indian food in Lisbon. Thought I'd try Tamarind since its near. Restaurant looked nice. Very clean. Service was attentive. Meal was a bit flavorless. The veggie samosa's crust was a bit thick. Not as light and flaky as I'm used to. The Nan was a bit dry. Main course lacked flavor. A bit watered down. My... More
