Typical curries, which were tasty enough. Watch out for the dips with the poppadums; one was extremely spicy (for me). Staff pleasant and friendly.

We were so impressed with the quality of the food and the excellent attentive service we went again and it was just as good. I have had Indian food in a number of places in the world and this was much different to the UK and seemed much more authentic. They also make there own desserts which you rarely get... More

We just love a good Indian! But it's not happening here. Being a lover of the spices we were really looking forward to this but can't say we really enjoyed it that much. Don't get me wrong, but it wasn't just there. Lovely restaurant inside & out but the service was poor ! Not enough staff ( only 2 )... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Everything was full of flavour and the meat lovely & tender. If you love spinach try a 'Palak' dish with your choice of meat, although lamb was fab. All clearly cooked from fresh and so we cleared the plates ! Delicious

Went on the off chance to try out and weren't disappointed. We had two very nice meals and the outside eating area was lovely. Prices seemed very reasonable and the staff very friendly. Would be very happy to go again.

We decided to try this as it was right near our hotel and we had a long day our touring the east island. And we were not disappointed. I had chicken tikki marsala and my husband had chicken korma with garlic mann and saffron rice. We asked for mild and it came out perfectly for us. Would recommend this restaurant-we... More

We all had the thali meals and found the meat curries to have the same sauce with different meat added (no marinating time). All curries lacked flavour, not just chilli heat missing but all the other spices too. My mother was most dissapointed as she's eaten here last year and it was really good. Service was really good and restuarant... More

I've eaten here about six times on my three trips to Madeira and have always been happy with the tasty food and good service. Recommended for anyone but also superb for vegetarians.

We love Indian food at home and this restaurant was only a 5 min walk from our holiday cottage so we decided to give it a go. The first night we ate there I liked it but my partner thought it was a little plain ( I had the chicken tikka masala and he had the chicken biryani ). The... More
