We have dined at the Raj before and enjoyed the meal very much. This time the service, though very correct and formal, did not deal with detail, e.g., failing to clear away dishes and food debris before serving the next dish. The menu choice was extensive, but my lamb byriani was not hot and was stodgy. The Indian kulti was... More

Had a dinner meal here and I would say that I am fussy about the quality of my Indian meals, this was superb, smaller portions but the taste and presentation was excellent. Would have gone back the following night, had we not been going home. Excellent menu choice in a beauty restaurant with a view of the ocean. My mouth... More

The starters - onion bhajis and pakoras were good and the main courses, lamb bhuna, chicken korma, and chicken masala were excellent. I had a dessert specially made, banana caramelised with cream and it... More

This has to be the best Indian restaurant in Portugal. The location is beautiful with the option to dine al fresco over looking the beach. The food is delicious, the service is fantastic.

A good Indian located in the Holiday Inn. Spectacular views out onto the Atlantic. The service is great and the staff are very attentive and friendly. My son thought his Chicken Tikka Massalla was the best he'd had. Worth a visit.

A bit apprehensive about an Indian Restaurant in a hotel but I enjoyed the experience very much. Accessed via the buffet restaurant in the hotel but also directly from hotel carpark
