Whilst I'd echo the previous comments that some staff seem disinterested and it lacked any atmosphere, the food was better than I'd expect, albeit the flavours will differ if you are used to formula curries in the UK. We enjoyed sheek kebab and vegetable pakora followed by lamb sag and chicken Pathia. Whilst you expect to find these on any... More

The standard of the food was very good and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our food was good value. It was very busy on the evening we were there but the waiters were on top of their game.

Visited the kohinoor several times on 1st visit to Tavira 7years ago. Have just returned this year, and the food here is still as good and is great value for money, whether sitting in or taking away. Caters for all tastes and always give option of mild/medium/hot and deliver as asked for. All reasonably priced including kids menu

We had been eating a lot of fish and then we found this Indian restaurant and thought a curry sounded perfect. We sat outside as it was a lovely balmy evening so I'm not sure about the actual restaurant inside. Personally I thought the food average (my husband was happy with his meal but he's not a fish lover so... More

Popular with the Brits, probably says it all. We really enjoyed our food. We ate inside where it was air-conditioned.

Popped in here for a quick lunch & was agreeably surprised. The chef came & discussed the menu with me as I have a mango allergy. The food was delicious & loads of it. Will definitely be going back.

I would never normally have an Indian meal on holiday but the other options in the area meant that we looked up best restaurants on trip advisor and chose this restaurant. We were not disappointed, great food, full of flavour, we were in a rush to catch a flight and they were really accommodating, the food came quickly and was... More

Spain and Portugal are great places to visit, but after a time you might just want some food with a spicy kick to it. Kohinoor's dishes are tasty, reasonably priced, and a great alternative to grilled sardines and boiled potatoes, the two staples of Tavira's many Portuguese restaurants. The restaurant is also quite clean, and the service is low-key and... More
