“Best Indian in Vilamoura”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We have tried all the Indian restaurants in Vilamoura and this is the best by far. It is in a small courtyard off the marina. The surroundings outside aren't great but the food is worth it.
We ate in it twice the last week we were there.

“The food is good but that's it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Good Indian food offering by the Vilamoura Marina, but the quality of service is poor.
They have a very nice terrace, but bring your own lamp, otherwise you may not be able o see what you are eating...

“Good Food but beware the (false) offer of a free drink”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The Mughal Clay was a restaurant we had visited several times the year before and looked forward to doing the same thing this year. The man on the Marina gave us a leaflet which entitled us a complimentary drink each and we looked forward to our meal. The food was good and service reasonable but it was all ruined upon receiving the bill. The waitress mentioned several times throughout our meal and at the end that our first drinks were on the house. However when we went to pay a full charge was made for all drinks despite us highlighting the issue. Apparently several other diners that evening had the same problem. We paid bill and moved on - no point in ruining evening but did not return again to restaurant. Don't believe everything you are promised - a pity because it's not a bad restaurant.

“good quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Liked this place. House wine wasn't great though. Food was good and they catered well for kids. They have other resturants on the Algarve too.

“I'm Indian - I KNOW CURRIES!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We visited this restaurant after being picked up off the marina by a Indian guy asking us if we want some good Indian food. Coincidently, we were looking for a Indian but was looking for Nataraj. The good fella told us exactly where it was and I thought that was very nice of him even though he was promoting Mughal Clay!

Solely for that reason, I thought what the heck?!, lets go for it!!! It was the best decision I made - Great food! What I loved more was that they accommodated my request of making my chicken tikka masala Indian hot! The lamb bhuna was also excellent - succulent tender pieces of lamb..mmm..I can taste it now (drooools).

Moving on, we had 1 starter, 2 crispy butter naans, 2 mains and 2 cokes for €38 - BARGAIN! I definitely will recommend all my family & friends to come here if they ever do come to Vilamoura, Portugal.
