Proper

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... read 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.

You will never find this restaurant alone. This restaurant does not have any advertising, is on the 1st floor of a small street in a corner in Figueira Square! I went there with a friend who knew the restaurant. No more than 35 places and was full when we arrived! We had to wait 15 minutes to use to prove... More

I had been there many years ago and loved it. I've heard it had changed but the food remained the same. Went for it without reservation. Had to wait for 10 minutes but it was worth the wait every single second. The food was wonderful. The service was very nice. And the price was extraordinarily affordable. Great indian food.

Food was very good (some was very spicy, so have that in mind before ordering) but service went from really nice to near agressive. I phoned to say my group was going to be approximately 10 min late but was faced with such a weird and harsh reply that if we had not been 9 people I would have gone... More

Very good food. For starters must try "chamuça” and for desert ”bebinca”. The environment is really simple and almost invisible from the outside. The service is good and the prices reasonable. Some consider this to be the best Indian food in Lisbon.

The food comes very very spicy, with no previous notice. The lacy comes highly fermented to a point that's unpleasant. The owner when addressed is somewhat harsh. There are by far better indian cuizine rataurants in Lisbon.

If you enjoy Indian food, this is one of the best restaurants in Lisbon. It has everything an Indian restaurant must have: biryani rice, prawn, chicken, lamb, (cheese and/or garlic) nan, tandoori, etc.. In terms of starters, make sure you don't miss the spicy "samosa" and "onion bahji".Then you can ask them what would they recommend, having in mind your... More

I know this restaurant for more than 20 years. Still on top of my favorite indian restaurants in Portugal. Best samoosa's I've ever eated. Excelent quality and good staff. Just don't expect to stay for too long. Once you've finished you must get out 'cause usualy there's too much people waiting.
