We were craving some spice by the time we came upon this small, nice, and clean restaurant in Lisbon. We liked it so much that on our last day in Lisbon (which happened to be the last day of our month-long travels) we ate both our lunch and dinner here. The food is great though I found the butter chicken... More

Good Indian meal with nice staff and a relaxed atmosphere in a clean restaurant. We weren't sure what to expect from an Indian restaurant in Portugal but it was pretty much the same as you would get in any nice local in England. Well recommended.

We were happy to find this Indian restaurant to the place where we stayed. Food was very good for a reasonable price. Also, we were able to get the chapatti in the original form. Most of the other restaurants that I visited used to serve us Roti when we asked for chapatti.

The food is really good, being an Indian I could say it's an authentic Indian flavour. the waitress though seemed to be an Indian too was not aware of the general ingredients of the indian food. It required to had a word with the chef itself. 😉

If you're like us and loving the Portuguese food but thinking it might be nice to have a change then you will be very pleased if you try the Tamarind Indian Restaurant. Simply fantastic spices and flavours - possibly up there with the best Indian we have had, and yes we have had a lot of Indian! Great service and... More

The service was wonderful. The waitress was very friendly, helpful in selection of the dishes. Food was awesome and delicious. We felt very satisfied after eating here. Would highly recommend it to others who want good Indian food.

We had an okay meal, but when we went to pay with our credit card, the restaurant said our card was rejected. They insisted we pay by cash. Upon returning to our hotel and calling the credit card issuer, we were informed there was no problem with our card and no indication the restaurant ever attempted to process our charge.... More

Ate really good Portuguese food at Lisbon, but after a few days, I needed a change of flavor that I found at this wonderful Indian restaurant. Excellent service, very good quality of products, and dishes. Traditional, well made Indian food.
