“A great find, worth the search to get here”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We hunted this restaurant down because of the good reviews about the food and the owners and we weren't disappointed. The food is freshly cooked to order and is well worth the wait, although this wasn't too long. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and it was easy to hear that other customers there were regulars and I'm not surprised. We will definitely go back for the great food and to chat with our hosts too.

“A great new find......”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

If it had not been for a very poor meal in another restaurant, we would not have tried the Sabor da India. Situated just to the back of the upper Pingo Doce supermaket, close to the Lido. A real find. The prawn biriani was accompanied by a vegetable curry and excellent. Similarly the Chicken Dhansak. Very friendly and attentive staff. Sadly our last day's holiday, so we have to wait again until April to revisit.

“Best curry outside 'home'.”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Cant really improve on all the other reviews about this place. The food and staff were excellent. We left our biggest tip of the week, and vowed to return some time. And, bearing in mind i call 'home' - near Bradford - the curry capital of the world, when i say this place was good, it was good!

“Friendly service, average Indian”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

It is true that the place is a bit hard to find. Well, once you get to the post office, walk to the other end of the building past the grocery store, look to your right up the very steep hill and you'll see the Sabor. It is indeed a very welcoming and friendly place, lovely colours inside, but we didn't find the food more than average. I am not a big eater, unlike my husband, but the portions were quite small, only a few pieces of chicken in my masala sauce. Their medium hot was somehow watery in taste and texture. Yes, we would eat there again and probably would recommend it as well, but it is not the best Indian we have had, not even close... Top marks for service though and for the complimentary glass of Madeira after the meal

The quality of the food was excellent, well flavoured too. Pleasant staff and pleasant surroundings. A little difficult to find and they would benefit from signage on the roadside as it is up a steep road/drive that is a dead end
