Returned to this restaurant after visiting a few years ago it was as good as we remembered. Great choice and excellent quality of food. Quality over quantity- something most Indian restaurants in the UK seem to forget. Would thoroughly recommend to any visitors to Funchal.

The food was excellent,the staff were friendly & efficient and it was great value. We are 2 adult vegetarians & 1 teenager who is omnivorous ..we all found lots of excellent options. We visited twice (it was adjacent to our hotel) but noticed that some other hotel guests visited almost every day..so they are definitely getting it right.

We had a meal here for our anniversary. A very clean popular place to eat. The meal was lovely and a relaxing place. Very well presented and friendly staff.

Service is not their strongest ability. Entrees are very bad, lack of flavor. But indian dishes, rice and garlic bread was fantastic. I certainly can go back again even with the no good service.

Opted for a walk in around 9pm on a quiet Tuesday night ... Restaurant was 25% full Staff were polite enough but a little lacking in enthusiasm. We had to ask for Poppadoms and pickles to start ! Beer was at the top end of pricing in Madeira for a 500ml Coral draft was 3-50 Euros. We ordered a Lamb... More

Sadly disappointing after looking forward to return here after some years. We sat at 7.30 and were given drinks and menus straight away, and our order taken immediately. The restaurant was full. We did not receive popadoms which other tables were given as a matter of course, but our starters arrived not even 5 minutes after ordering, which were cleared... More

So glad we decided to go into this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the service was quick despite the restaurant being almost completely full. The food was absolutely gorgeous and there was plenty of it - all very reasonably priced too. We would go back again in a heartbeat - some of us actually did as... More

Friendliest waiters in Funchal - very helpful with chosing dishes . Curries and varied dishes to rival the best in Glasgow ! Reasonable prices and a nice view from the upstairs tables
