In the menu the only dish from indian cuisine you can find only curry chicken for 16 Euros. Small portions, the traditional soup was an egg in a bouillon and 4 pieces of bread in it. At the very beginning they brought us a local bread with butter, olives which we didn't order and thought it was a compliment as... More

Very local restaurant, not expensive and food is just delicious. We had seafood rice, calamari and chicken. Sangria was amazing too. It is likely that you will have to wait to get a table but it is completely worth it.

We came to this restaurant by coincidence. We were looking for a place to eat around 13:30 . The place is small bu full of local people. The service is slow but it was worth the waiting. The food was nice and we were too hungry to look for another one. Will I ever come back? Yes. Are there any... More

Enjoyed the Piri Piri chicken with a friend and was not disappointed. The serving was generous for two with fries pureed spinach and rice . The restaurant was hopping with diners and a nice chaotic feel to it.Our waiter was efficient and fast. For those on a budget, good food, good flavor! Its nothing fancy and the ambience is very...

This restaurant is located between Bairo Alto and Chiado in Lisbon. They serve mostly grilled meat and fish for very reasonable prices. We had grilled chicken and grilled rabbit served with French-fries and vegetables-rice. Meat was juicy and well-seasoned. This place is rather crowded and full of locals - but this is not a disadvantage at all :)

We wanted to finish our stay in Lisbon with a 'genuine' Portugese meal so we headed to Baixa Chiado to eat with the locals. The Casa Da India is a very ordinary looking place from the street - and pretty plain on the inside too - but the smell of the chicken cooking over hot coals drew us in. We... More

This place is good for a quick, cheap and cheerful lunch. The food is solid, nothing spectacular, but pretty good at this price. We went for the Piri Piri Chicken, it was good, but a little dry. Staff were very friendly and the Casal Garcia cold.

I seldom leave negative comments, but while I'm writing this, my girlfriend is at the toilet and puking thanks to the 'food' what we just had. Maybe we were simply unlucky as the former reviewers left mainly positive marks, but both my codfish and my girl's curry chicken were extremely dry and tasted weird. Long story short: I strongly discourage... More

We are student travellers on a budget (yet also consider ourselves foodies) and this place delivered incredible value. It was very busy which is always a good omen and we were seated after about 15 minutes (although we had fun watching the chef while we waited). We all ordered draught beers and the 6.50euro chicken, chips and rice. DO NOT... More

Our host put us onto this unassuming restaurant tucked away in the Bairro Alto, just a short walk form the metro. Supposedly a local haunt, it would be easy to stroll past this hole-in-the-wall. But once inside, the atmosphere is alive with regulars and tourists alike, crowding the bar and tables. The waiter was attentive and seemed to handle the... More
