Great Indian restaurant in Boliqueime, staff super nice and the chef came to our table to explain us about the food, flavours and overall experience. But the restaurant need some improvements in terms of the dining room and bathroom.

Damp November evening lifted by beautiful food. Excellent service and I would highly recommend people try this gem of a restaurant in the Algarve. Food full of layers of flavour and interesting discussions about the history of food. We will most definitely be returning.
