“Undoubtedly the best Goan cuisine in Lisbon”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Despite the simplicity of the restaurant, here you can enjoy one of the best meals based on Goan cuisine. Recommended also to all lovers of spicy food, since all the dishes is marked by this characteristic. Some recommended dishes are the "Vindalho" (highly recommended) or "Chacuti." The service is fast and friendly.

“Yummy Goan food and gracious hosts”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

A nice, homely restaurant run by a wonderful Goan family. The spicy chicken curry and the pork vindaloo were just finger licking deliciously yummy. I thoroughly enjoyed the samosas too. It felt like I was back home . I tried their signature dessert - the home-made mango ice-cream and it was just the perfect way to end the meal. The prices are very reasonable. Looking forward to my next trip to Lisbon to enjoy another meal at Zuari :)

“Friendly service with a smile”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

The owner Orlando and his family were very welcoming and after an appetiser of a couple of samosas produced a memorable chicken "chacuti". Food and drinks all reasonably priced. Good place to visit after a spot of sight seeing ( the National Art Museum is just down the road)

“Great find in Lusbon”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We reached the place around 4 in the evening after a long day of walking around sightseeing. We were starving and despite the late hour, they opened the kitchen just for us. The owner gave us some history about the place and was very friendly. The delicious food and the friendly hosts make this place a must visit in a visit to Lisbon. Might be a bit hard to find without Google maps on your mobile...

Word strongly recommend the vindaloo...

“Exquisite and traditional Goan cuisine”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Goa is a popular holiday resort for many Brits nowadays and the food there is equisite..indian with a portuguese influence to many dishes. (Goa was a portuguese colony for four centuries) You can definitely taste the difference between indian and goan cuisine. This family run small restaurant is worked solely by Orlando and Sheila who are such lovely Goans. My ancestry is Goan so I can honestly say that ALL their dishes are still prepared the traditional way eg spices are ground fresh etc and taste amazing e.g rice steamed bread, full flavoured pilau rice, sorpatel (a pork festive dish) etc are so so delicious and do finish off with Goan dessert cake like Bibica, a layered coconut milk cake which takes ages to prepare. The price too is amazing ..definitely affordable by all - enjoy!
