Starters of Chicken Tikka Masala and Shami Kebab were both cold! with salad, Lamb Madras and Pilau rice + Everest Chicken (allegedly Nepalese) were OK, all told not the finest meal for its type but just about passable if a little on the expensive side. Probably would not return, service was fine though.

I'm only giving this restaurant an average score because we had to wait in excess of an hour for the meal last night, they perhaps couldn't help it but all the clients were kept waiting such a long time, the food was very good,but I will not return to this place

Good food. Not an expert but I've had Indian and Nepalese before and this was very good. Don't let the location nor the low prices keep you away. It's a bit slow but probably because they are making the food just for you instead of having it pre cooked. It's a place I'd like to go back.

We had lunch here in September 2015. We had planned to get some indian food in the other restaurant on the main strip in town but decided on a smaller 'backstreet' indian cuisine. We were so happy we did, it was beautIful, one of the nicest indian dishes (chicken tikka balti) I ever had. The service was excellent, very polite... More

I've been to this restaurant at least three times over the past five years and have always come away happy and full! The special/tourist menu for €11 is great. Between three we went for two naan and one rice which was perfect - you get a huge amount of rice! The food is great and so is the service. I'll... More

Just ate out at this restaurant and it was delicious. Got the special menu and for just €11 you got 4 courses and drinks. We were stuffed and would recommend this to anyone and everyone. The staff were very nice and welcoming too!

Excellent service and food. I chose the Phal and it wasn't just hot, it had depth and flavour to it as well. It can get busy which shows how popular it is.

Let me assure you that I don't look for international cuisine when visiting any place. I always look for the traditional local food, I love to experiment all kinds of food, even some non-european standard food. Neither I expected amazing food on Algarve. I was wrong. You should always doubt your beliefs and take the knowledge that the experience can... More
