While spending a month in Olhao, we found this Indian restaurant during a walk around the lovely narrow cobbled "Shopping Streets" in the town. Normally when I'm in a country I try to eat the local food, but my sister convinced me to try Indian one evening. I am amazed at how these tiny little restaurants can have such diversified menus. The number of choices was amazing and when we went in we were the only patrons. Others arrived later, but how they can serve so many things is a mystery to me.
The food was good. I enjoy good Indian food and I feel this was authentic Indian. The curry was just right in spice, and they were able to do my meal with no milk without spoiling the affect.
The service however was not that good. It seemed that they just were not experienced or hadn't learned proper technique. For example we chose a wine, and it was brought and poured - no tasting or check by the person who ordered it. I might think I was just being a "Picky" North American, but I noticed that all other restaurants did it the expected way. As well, service was slow, and there was little follow-up (was it Ok? Did we need anything else? Etc.) Now it is a small spot, and with three tables he was busy (He wasn't alone and doing the cooking as well like another review suggests), but I still felt under-served.
If you have a hankering for 'Indian' while in Olhao, by all means give this place a chance; the food is good, but seriously, go have some of Olhao's amazing seafood.
