Nice quiet Indian restaurant with a very pleasant terrace, swift and attentive service and delicious food. They have an 11€ (indian) menu which is mind-blowing value for money: drink, naan, rice, a main dish and coffee. Also, they kindly offered us a shot of lassi or liquor when we left.

So... what happens if a restaurant chooses to serve Italian and Indian food? I had a tiring day today so I was looking to spoil myself a bit and went to that restaurant. Unfortunately I was disappointed. The typical Indian flavour was lacking in the food. And the place was very dirty. When I arrived, all tables were totally dirty... More

We happened upon this little restaurant during a stroll around Sintra - and it was time for a change to Portuguese cuisine. We ordered the set menu and the samosas, vegetable curry and chicken madras were good and tasty. We also ordered naan which was also excellent. Generous servings, friendly wait staff - nothing to complain about at all.

This restaurant is fantastic! The waiter was extremely friendly and attentive, the area was slightly removed from the crazy touristy streets of Sintra and the Sangria was simply divine. However, the food was the real star of the show! Having lived in London for the last year and finding Indian cuisine to be quite hit and miss, I was fanging... More

I really wanted a different meal from the local specialties so we went for Indian. It also is the local pizza house. The food was bland, very bland. I don't mean a lack of heat, I mean lack of any spices. I had a mango and lamb curry which was lumps of lamb in a mango puree which I felt... More

My husband and I recently visited Sintra with our 2 year old and we were introduced to this great restaurant by locals. The food was amazing! Truly authentic Indian food and if you don't like Indian food- they have various dishes to choose from. The service was also very good.

To put it very simply, after two bottles of wine, the decision to go to an Indian that doubles as an Italian may have seemed a smart choice, it wasn't, stay authentic.
