Best samosas in Lisbon

I went last night with my partner. We ordered 1 samosa each, which we where told where the best samosas in Lisbon... They where hot and crispy and fresh! So good that we had to order 1 more each! Not only where they the best in Lisbon, but probably the best I've had! The curry was very good! I... read more

My partner and I were staying nearby and decided to check it out. It turned out to be possibly the best eating experience we had in Lisbon. Everything was cooked fresh (you can hear the frying pan) and tasted excellent. The samoas were some of the best I have had, they were delicately flavoured with coriander and came out hot... More

Delicious, authentic Goan food (I am half Goan and spent my summer holidays there so really, I do know authentic when I see it). Highly recommend the kachori (although this isn't a Goan dish - was still delicious!), the prawn curry and the fish curry (the one in red chilli paste). The service was excellent - friendly and attentive but... More

Nice, friendly owner. Good service. Menu was very limited with hardly any accompaniments/sauces/chutney's, etc. Ambience? OK Food.

I was expecting more after some reviews and after some years without eating Goa food. Maybe I'll stick to Indian for some more time...

It took some persuading to get my partner to try this as we stood outside, it looks more like a small cafe with ice cream adverts outside - but we're so glad we went it! In the back there is a small restaurant, the menu was simple with only a few options but everything we had was superb. I had... More

We were in Portugal last month and stopped at Zuari for lunch. Wonderful experience! The decor and homely atmosphere took me right back to my childhood in Goa, as did the terrific food. The hosts were great, and we were particularly impressed to see the entire family pitch in - including teenage kids returning from their classes at the university... More
