great authentic Indian food!

the food was excellent, as was the service. we loved the matar paneer, palak paneer and vegetable biryani, served with onion cucumber raita. the biryani in particular was excellent, spiced just right! we weren't huge fans of the daal makhani. just so you are aware, this is not Goan food.

We came here as we were staying locally. My husband loves Indian, the hotter the better. On the other hand, I do not. I like spicy, but not hot. I asked for their recommendation and it was very good. Both my husband and I enjoyed our meals. The portion sizes are generous and the price was good. Would go again... More

We found this place as we were staying nearby and thought we'd try it out. The menue is extensive with plenty to please the meat eater as well as the vegetarian. The service is very prompt with the waiters rushing around and are very attentive.

Good menu including lots of vegetarian options. Well presented and tasty food, with great service. Situated down a side street and well worth a visit.

We went as a couple, I ordered the Lamb Masala and my boyfriend, who is Portuguese ordered Prawn Karahi.

The balance of spices in the dishes was excellent, the only thing I had an issue... More

This restaurant was hidden away down a side street but the food was brilliant. We were a family of 4 and were treated superbly. The food was very tasty. Thoroughly recommended.

The food was amazing, very tasty and the service was impeccable, we were a party of 8 and we ordered several chicken dishes, lamb, rice, naan and raita, all were delicious. The Gin drinks were spectacular. The staff was super friendly and attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend it:)

We came to the restaurant late night on Sunday with our 3 kids after driving almost the whole day from northern Portugal to Lisbon so we all were hungry and exhausted. They welcomed us warmly and recommended what and how many dishes to order from the menu. Food was delicious to all of us and the stuff was friendly and... More

Very good restaurant. Also we asked if they could make some dishes that were not on the menu. That was no problem at all. Very enjoyable dinner! Good food, nice friendly staff, good atmosphere!

We found this restaurant through TA and we were not disappointed. The service and the staff were wonderful, making us feel very welcomed and at ease. The menu was extensive - offering plenty of vegetarian options. An excellent experience.
