Just had a meal here after finding on Trip Advisor. I am not going to say it was the best I have bee had but for Spain it was a good Indian. Had the Chicken and Fish Pakoras both good and we both had the Chicken Vindaloo as needed something spicy after being in Spain for 10 days. Came on... More

Came to Spain to look for great authentic food. Found this place and decided to stop in. Was a little skeptical because of the lack of patrons inside but I'm glad I did! The tastiest food i had ! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

We love Indian food and found Bismad through tripadvisor. Can be quiet and a little too bright but if you want really nice Indian food at very reasonable prices you will not be disappointed. We now visit every year and it is always best and cheapest meal.

A really nice place with super pleasant waiter and amazing food ! Everything seems home cooked and even though the portions may seem small, they are more than enough to leave the place with full and happy stomach :)

The waiter was pleasant and the decor was rough, the food was atrocious. I've no idea how this has the rating it has. The poppadoms tasted of paint and the vindaloo we had wasn't spicey and had that gone off vinegar taste that old stews left in the fridge often get. It was an unpleasant experience.

This is proper home-made food, no taste of pre-made curries. The portions are also not too big compared to a lot of other Indian restaurants. Butter chicken is recommended. Would certainly eat here again.

It's a simple no frills restaurant but with an excellent service. I've been to Bismad 3 times and every time the food was very good. It's not expensive so don't expect huge portions for the price. I definitely recommend it!!!

The husband and I like Indian food a lot, and since we dont like tapas, we decided to go have indian one night in Barcelona. After looking around on TripAdvisor, we decided to come here. The waiter was a very sweet young man. Very attentive, but not very talkative. We ordered 1 papadum each (1 euro per piece, not that... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
