The restaurant is set back from the hustle and bustle of the main square but still within 50m of it. We had the most amazing curries here tonight in a lovely outdoor courtyard setting. We paired it with an affordable bottle of Monsaraz. The prices are very reasonable compared to other places within the town and great value for money.... More

On a quiet side street with a patio area. Serves Indian dishes and some pastas as well. No authentic Indian but if you need a break from the Portuguese food, it was not bad. Full trip report and photos if you need on chiliandtart.tumblr.com.

I'm staying in Sintra for five days. After doing a survey of restaurants nearby, I came across very little in the way of choice. Almost every restaurant is a tourist place with inflated prices, and with what looks like sub-par food. When I found Bengal Tandoori, I was thrilled. Their location is central, but on a non-touristed street, their prices... More

We stumbled into this place by accident. It was a bit hidden off the main track, but well worth the visit. We were tired of the traditional Portugese food and wanted to try something different. The tandoori shrimp was perfectly good with a delicious pungent sauce and the baingan bharta was to die for. They have a quiet little patio... More

Yearning for Indian food, I finally found this decently reviewed place in Sintra. It was easy to reach with the help of directions from google maps. The food here is good but not authentic Indian. It is closer to the western perception and interpretation of Indian food. For exaple, the lentile used for "Dal tadka" was bengal gram while authentic... More

It is very good place that we found in sintra for nice Indian food. We ordered chicken curry, mix vegetables, chicken korma and it is cooked in real authentic way.

The waiter was very friendly and was helpful when we asked to translate the menu. We paid only 11 euro for the lunch menu. Chicken korma was very tasty and spicy enough.
