Excellent Lamb Xacuti

I had the Goan Lamb Xacuti here - it was superb. Portugal had a colonial presence in India (Goa) for many centuries until 1961, so holidaymakers should not be too surprised to see Indian restaurants in Portugal (although the ones in Tavira seem to cater predominantly to British visitors). Good good... read more

I had a great meal here. The food was delicious, tasty, well presented and good portion sizes. I was even given a free poppadom with two delicious sauces. The customer service was excellent. The only downside for me was it was full of Brits. We do love a curry! I just wish the locals would give it a try. I'll... More

Went to this place as it was reviewed well and according to the bloke who stands outside there in the day 'it's the best Indian in Tavira'. I haven't tried any of the others so thought we'd go here for a meal one night. I had a madras which was alright and my girlfriend tried a Bhuna which was nice.... More

Called in for a meal tonight as a party of 8. Very friendly staff and service with food that was very good and generous portion sizes. Took advice on ordering from the staff and they were spot on in terms of portions etc, did not try to oversell. Would highly recommend.

We looked at the reviews from all 5 of the Indian restaurants in Tavira and it was such a mixed bag so we walked past them all and chose Kohinoor because it looked the nicest and has a large, air conditioned indoor seating area. I enjoy a curry a couple of times a month and I rate this one on... More
