Small restaurant on the first floor, not very easy to find - Normally, the first time you go there, you go with someone that knows the place...and then you become forever thankful to that person... For me, it is the best indian restaurant I know, and I find myself to be a good conneisseur of asian/indian food. The samossas are... More

I am not crazy about Indian food and only try them because my wife loves. This restaurant is one of my favourite Indian ever. It's a simple restaurant but very good food. The onion bahji is amazing. Saag is also highly recommended :)

Very poor service and very unwelcoming. My wife has a few food allergies however they point blank refused to acknowledge this and stated that they could not tweak the menu to accommodate this. Sorry but the whole experience was poor.

After reading reviews of restaurants near our Hotel Mundial, finally found Caxemira through a doorway amongst postboxes next to Hotel Lisboa Tejo, what a find!!! An amazing Indian meal, full of flavours, not overpowering, great staff, good atmosphere, fantastic meal. Thankyou for a great meal. Eddie and Sue

This is a proper Indian restaurant with great food and immaculate service. Only thing it's almost impossible to find.. No signage and up a flight of stairs on a side road ... When I asked why they did not advertise the response... " no need...". Looking around a full cafe I could not argue... Read into that , it's great,... More

Having read and acted on the lots of adulatory reviews, I felt the restaurant was a let down. One thing that could easily be done would be to ask customers how hot they wanted their food; I felt mine was very bland. Sorry, I just didn't find this place inspiring.

I've been coming to this restaurant for the past 5 years now! Whenever I'm in Lisbon, I eat dinner every evening here. Great food, Portuguese clientele, fair prices. Lately they've been preparing food more on the bland side, but just ask them to season as if they were in India to get the real deal.

Thank EdwardRM

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
