Fine curry in Funchal

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

We'd eaten here four years ago on a previous visit to Madeira and thought we go back it was disappointing. The food was at best average but the service was poor. It took two requests and a 25 minute wait at the end of the meal for them to produce the bill. OK a waiter had dropped a glass and... More

This restaurant is perfectly situated by our hotel and therefore it is always a great place to go if you want to stay quite close by. The staff here have seen us several times and always remember us which is always heartwarming. The portions are generous so we've learned over time not to order too much. We usually opt for... More

After reading reviews I was not expecting the attentive friendly service we received. Order was taken promptly & meal& drinks were served quickly. Dishes were tasty, especially the chicken tikka & the chilli dip served with the poppadoms was delicious & the waiter told us came from chillies grown on balcony. A little more expensive than an Indian at home... More

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

we can only presume that the staff were new and inexperienced. We booked a table for a Saturday evening meal. 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
