We are two couples who ate here. We had delicious food and great service. Our only issue came when we tried to pay and had difficulty using our credit card. Other than that we had a very good experience.

For me. Best Indian food tasted in months. That s for Dhals and Panner and real Mango chutney -imported I bet, otherwise are genius -. Rest ok, samosas regular and Nan above average. Staff super atent and very nice. Read some other reviews regarding bad service and do not agree. Italian food just ok. Will go again if stay longer... More

Even though the menu isnt in English we soon found something with the help of the waiter. Friendly service, good and tasty food and not too expensive.

Me and a friend had dinner here. The food was all right (average for the price). I had the chicken mango (made from real blended mango) but with just a few pieces of chicken, served with rice. The service was just terrible. Just one waiter to serve about 10 tables.

I don't eat meat and although I eat fish I don't want to eat it every night so eating out can be quite a trial in Portugal. After 5 nights I was glad to have a veggie curry. There was lots of choice here and the food was very tasty and non greasy. Nice food and good service, what's not... More

My husband and myself have just returned from 2 nights in Sintra, and both nights we ate here. Both nights the locals were in. The food was excellent, as was the service. The first night we both had a different chicken curry with rice and a nan, and the second night we shared the tandoori mix platter, with a bottle... More

The service was terrible...one lonely server running around serving each table. Our meal took 45 minutes to arrive although we only ordered one main dish each. The server forgot about our appetizer and we had to remind him and he lied and told us it was on its way when we clearly saw him punching it in after we reminded... More

This is Indian-type food product, dumbed-down and thinned-out for generic tourist tastes, cranked out of a commercial kitchen and reheated in a microwave oven. It was dropped onto our plastic patio table by a man who obviously wished he was anyplace else in the world. Whilst in Sintra, stick with the local bar and Portuguese cuisine. If you want decent...

We just celebrated my birthday there with dinner. Didn't know what to expect and had a great time. Tried a couple of Indian chicken & vegetarian dishes, all were super. The staff were very sweet and Pleasant, totally upgraded the experience for us. Didn't try Italian so won't comment... Would visit again.

Although Sintra is enjoying quite a boom of Indian restaurants, this remains my favourite. The staff is always nice and helpful, the food is tasty and fresh. There's a nice terrace if the weather's helpful. Only downside is that it has a large smoking area which can be disruptive to the meal.
