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.

My family happened upon this restaurant for lunch during our day trip to Sintra. Our waiter was friendly and made our experience very enjoyable. The food was surprisingly excellent. Much better than many places we've tried in the U.S., which are numerous. Would highly recommend to anyone needing their Indian food fix.

We wanted a short break from Portuguese cuisine and decided to eat at this place. Kind of a mistake. We had two Indian dishes and two pizzas. All were edible, but not great food. Also, then portions were small and 10-14 Euro for a curry without rice (rice was extra) was a bit too much. Definitely not great value.
