This restaurant is Lisbon's "Original Indian" restaurant - being the first Indian restaurant in the city and has operated in the same location for over 30 years. It does not have a street sign.

Went with my 2 sisters. What a surprise! One sister is an Indian food fanatic. We both agreed it was the best Indian we have ever had and my sister eats Indian all the time. Cheap, cheap, eats. Very good service. This is a must do if you like Indian food.

Small restaurant on the first floor, not very easy to find - Normally, the first time you go there, you go with someone that knows the place...and then you become forever thankful to that person... For me, it is the best indian restaurant I know, and I find myself to be a good conneisseur of asian/indian food. The samossas are... More

I am not crazy about Indian food and only try them because my wife loves. This restaurant is one of my favourite Indian ever. It's a simple restaurant but very good food. The onion bahji is amazing. Saag is also highly recommended :)

Very poor service and very unwelcoming. My wife has a few food allergies however they point blank refused to acknowledge this and stated that they could not tweak the menu to accommodate this. Sorry but the whole experience was poor.

Thank Mit G

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
