Being brought up on Indian cuisine, I could not fault the amazing menu selection, the price or most importantly the amazing flavour of this restaurant - shame we found it on the last night else would have gone back for more

We are a family in which there are two vegetariana, me and my young son. The food was excellent: the bread with vegetables fantastic, the soup very very good the Punjabi superlative. My wife had the chicken that was fantastic.tomorrow we'll come again

We have been in the neighborhood two weeks and have been to Natraj four times. Twice eating in and twice take out. The food is excellent - the curry, chicken or pork tastes great. Vegetable dishes are rich in flavor. Tomato soup, naan bread & samosa's round out a full meal. The staff are friendly and helpful with the menu.... More

Wow, Natraj Tandoori nailed it. The best Indian food I've had outside of my friend's mom's kitchen in India. It's a small, casual restaurant tucked down a quiet street outside the touristic center of Lisbon. I stopped in for a quick lunch while traveling in Lisbon on business. The service was quick and friendly and the food quality was second... More

This restaurant is NOT halal. They told us very clearly when we arrived. We visited on May 27th. There are not any halal places nearby.

Dont think about the non-fancy Interieur . The best Restaurants in Lisboa are not the best looking. Here you get very good Indian food, very friendly Service. I will come back.

Basically a tandoori style restaurant, but has a smorgasbord of Indian foods - likely all your faves. For dinner I had a lamb curry (since I was craving lamb instead of chicken, which is likely their specialty). The lamb was a bit tough and didn't have much flavor, but the sauce and veggies were pretty good. The naan garlic bread... More

Decided to try this out based on some reviews and I have to say, these reviews failed me in a big way. Natraj is simple and affordable but not as good as other affordable Indian restaurants in Lisbon. The food is not particularly good. The Onion Bhaji were burned, had no crunch and tasted like old oil. Worse Vegetable Samosas... More
