The food is great, the service not so much. When you arrive and up to the point that you order, service is great. But it takes realllllyy long for them to come pick up the empty plates and ask if you want anything else. Plus maybe this is me, but I thought their customer service was fake friendly. I mean...

This Restaurant is at the top of a hill opposite the Carlton Hotel. The food was very good as was the service. They also do takeaway [as you might expect] . By comparison with good Indian Restaurants in UK it was good but pricey for the Takeaway. However you may have a choice of only one Indian Restaurant in Funchal... More

Visited this restaurant first night after a long day of travelling and needing to eat fairly close to the hotel Excellent food and staff Very clean but do not drink too much because the stairs to the place are quite steep

The restaurant was not overly busy. we were seated in a side room and our order taken.... more couples came into the room . After 30 minutes a waiter brought hot plates and the wrong food. He then tried to... More

Food was good, although the relishes that come with popadums were nothing special. The service was pretty poor although they were not very busy. We just did not feel looked after.

Decided to give this restaurant a go and we're glad we did. Started with poppadoms, which I'm not normally fussed about, but these were probably the best I've tasted, they were very light and not greasy like some. We then had a lamb and a fish curry, and they were both excellent. Peshwari nan was also excellent, and there was... More

Very tasty food, great service, pleasant staff - best indian restaurant I've been in. Service was quick and efficient - we returned here twice during our stay and it was consistently good. You enter up a flight of stairs and you can seat inside or out or in mid summer they can open most of the side large windows to... More

The food was nice, not amazing but was tasty. This Indian was a bit more pricey than another Indian restaurant that I also visited. Restaurant inside is nice and clean and modern.
