We came for two daily specials. 12 euro total. The curries were ok, not great. The naan was terrible, and the bread was at least a day old.... He wanted us to pay 28 euros in the end, because our portions were larger??? Better to go somewhere else were the service is as it is supposed to be!

We found this wandering the old town of Leiria and a neighbour in the street said good food. He was right! We had fish curry of the day and the sauce was flavourful yet did not outdo the beautiful skate, cooked to perfection. A melt in the mouth moment. Goan style cooking at its best. Desserts were delicious and the... More

This is a very good restaurant, with a nice decoration and pleasant ambiance, placed on the old centre of Leiria. The owner is from indian origin so, if you like it, try the indian food! The dishes are prepared in goese way (Goa was an ancian portuguese colony). They are really fresh and the look is very beautiful and care.... More

A good place to change from typical portugueuse cuisine, you still have very traditional (balcalhau com broa, carne com mustarde) but also vegetarian and indian recipes. Very nice atmosphere and good music providing a very nice ambiance. Perfect timing to be served with gentle waiter or owner. A good place in Leiria to try, near the center place so easy... More

Cozy ambiance, Indian or Portuguese dishes, only freshly made. Some vegetarian meal are available, I would recommend Portuguese dishes which are very tasty.

Strolling trough the small streets of old Leiria we discovered this small Indian restaurant (but serving also Portuguese food). It is located on the first floor of a building in a street with lots of buildings in need of restauration. The contrast with the restaurant is surprising: an inviting entrance and a clean, cosy restaurant lightly decorated with taste. One... More

We tried a portuguese speciality and was very good, but have, also Indian food. Highly recommended to test Portuguese cuisine. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. The price for 4 drinks, 2 starters, 2 main dishes and 2 desserts was 45€. Good value for maney. I think it may be one of the best restaurants in Leira

FIrst of all, it´s not an indian restaurant, even no vegetarian meals you can find there. In my perspective, this is a Restaurant (normal one) with some creative add vallue on the preparation and presentation of the meals. The service it´s quite slow, but the quality its good (normal quality for restaurants in this region of Portugal). I suggest to... More
