We got chicken and beef Chamosas (chicken was our favorite) and coconut rice with Shrimp! The food was delicious and the atmosphere is lively and unique! Be careful with the chili sauce that comes with the chamosas it is HOT!

Nice restaurant, very basically furnished, with great staff and greater food. Maybe they could tone down a little the reference to the lavish praise on tripadvisor that they are (deservedly) getting. I liked the place and will return.

If I was living in Lisbon, it could be a place I come once in a while but as a tourist I don’t think you need to go out of your way to visit this place.

Stumbled across this place while visiting Alfama. The food was exquisite and the service was great, the chef even came out and talked to me about the food. Would recommend if you want to eat something a bit different from the norm.

Great service. its a fusion of Mozambique, Portuguese, and Indian cuisines. Everything on the menu is delicious. Very reasonably priced. Very good service. We had the Bakariya dish, which consisted of six lamb racks for less than 15 euros.

This restaurant exceeded all expectations. I saw a video of it by Mark Wiens on YouTube. The service was excellent. The Mozambique-Portuguese fusion food is spectacular. However, the beef chamusas (samosas) are the reason I’d go back. Delicious flaky small pastries filled with beef. Caution:...More

We do deliver to your hotel room, just call us, we speak English. The best mozambican food in Lisbon and probably in Portugal, we have been open for 30 years and we do unique food. Came and try the best chamoussas in Lisbon, the Makoufe a dish that the chef recommends and the Piri-Piri Chicken without doubt the best chicken in Lisbon for sure.Wi-Fi available inside for customers
