“Delicious Indian food in the heart of Lisbon!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

TA reviews are normally very reliable & Im glad I followed thru by going to this restaurant! I rarely write reviews unless my expectations are clearly exceeded or completely appalled. This place exceeded my expectations with authentic, fresh, & very delicious Indian food. I had a veggie samosa to start, Garlic Tikka chicken/veggie dish which was sooo tasty along with a Keema Naan. The service was commendable & expeditious. Prices were very reasonable for the portion size & flavor of the meals. Overall, it is definitely worth going to, even if you are not familiar with Indian food. the wait staff are very friendly & help determine what you should try based on your normal preferences. Nice cozy atmosphere too! I would come back & highly recommend to others.

“Great value for money! & great food!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

As vegetarians finding a decent meal in Lisbon hasn't been easy... So finding this little local gem of a restaurant saved our trip! And to make it even better, the food was highly authentic! And everything we ordered was piping hot and super fresh! & the service was terrific! We will definitely be back!

“If it's good enough for the locals...”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

One of my rules of thumb when dining out abroad is to check whether the locals eat there - by that measure this restaurant is a hands down winner. The waiters are all unfailing friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the food is excellent and, last but by no means least, it is very good value especially at lunch time when there is a 20% discount - our meal for 4 with wine was 52€. The location is very central, just a very short walk from Largo do Rato in the direction of the Amoreiras shopping centre.

“Beyond expectations!!!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is the best Indian restaurant of the WORLD!!! You will not eat a better meal even in India. I've tried a lot of indian restaurants in Lisbon but this one is the best and the price is great (15€-18 € pp). Sometimes is not easy to park the car....that's the only fault.

“glorious”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This Indian Restaurant was our absolute favorite during our visit to Lisbon. It beats many of the Restaurants located at the touristic streets in downtown Lisbon. It is hidden in a quite side street, but the ambient is great, the food is to die for, and the waiter is charming, fast, and elegant. And the best: the prices are low, no tourist trap whatsoever. Again!
