Staff were nice, food was ok. Very expensive for an ok curry. Nice balcony restaurant just a shame about the bland curry.

Great little India restaurant with lovely aromatic Indian food and good service. We sat outside and enjoyed our dinner, which was very reasonably priced.

Excellent curry: all just right. The vegetable thali wasn't quite what I expected: there were only two dishes (dhal and veg curry) and rice but both were really tasty. Though close to a busy-ish road, it's a lovely, cool, rooftop terrace. Fab.

We are their as a family with a diverse range of meals, each of them as we would expect of the flavours in the UK. The quality was high on each dish and the service swift and friendly. We will go back. The breads were okay rather than brilliant otherwise it could have been 5 stars.

Lovely meal and honest staff. The owner was humble enough to refund a starter without any issue as we had a mis understanding over the order.

Large group turned up on spec and were promptly seated. Drinks arrived quickly, along with the popadoms. The food was delicious and rivaled our favorite eateries from home for quality, taste and value (lamb was better than at home!!). Very child friendly, excellent all round. If you fancy a curry - head on down!

If I could have given the place a 3.5 I would, it's not average but not quite very good. My husband and I ate without a reservation and was seated straight away. My advice would be, if you're doing this then go early as it was getting really busy just before we left. We chose to eat outside and the... More

Ate here quite a few nights whilst on holiday. Definitely the most friendly waiters that we have been served by in Madeira. Food very nice and would highly recommend to everyone.

A clean inviting establishment with a good menu and tasty food although I think that my lamb dansak was rather more bovine than ovine but very tasty all the same. Would happily go again.
