I wanted to take 1 point off for athmosphere where they could really improve a bit but just couldn't because the food was just so good, the service sweet and attentive, and all that for a very good value. Very good meal and good for takeout too!

Spot on Indian cuisine, great value, friendly service. This grub won't break the bank and it certainly hits the spot. Add a bottle or half of wine to wash it all down and you'll still come out at less than €40 with starter and main courses. Beat that then!

Food was very poor, with NO authentic flavours or tastes at all. I have never had food so salty in my life and to be then asked would I like anything more maybe some salt that said it all...they have not a clue about cooking good food!

The very worst meal both my wife and I have ever eaten or should say bought but didn't eat. Could not believe they called themselves Indian Cuisine!!! Most disgusting slop with chilli powder!! And lettuce served on a hot skillet, wow!! What a great shame as we were so much looking forward to a really good Indian meal.

We ordered 2 adult portions of malai chicken with chips and rice at €10 and two children's portions at €5.50. When the 4 meals arrived, we had 4 plates which looked IDENTICAL except two of them had 4 small extra pieces of chicken on them (these being the adult portions) - there was the EXACT same amount of rice and...

While in Carvoeiro Portugal myself and my partner decided to order a takeaway to take back to the Villa. I have to say we were not disappointed at all. The food was extremely tasty. The staff were very welcoming, providing us with Poppadoms and a drink while we waited for our food to be ready. The price wasn't too bad... More

Usually speaking Indian restaurants in Europe leave you disappointed, this is not the case here. The food was wonderfully presented and nothing was too much trouble for the staff to please customers. excellent authentic spices used and understanding of use. We would highly recommend.

This was actually one of our favorite meals in Portugal. There is no shortage of Indian restaurants to chose from, and I felt like we really lucked out in picking this one. It's not a fancy set up but the food was great, between 4 of us we tried about 6 dishes (leftovers were good too) and each dish was... More

Bland foods utilising the same base sauce and just adding extra piri piri does not make for a good Indian Restaurant. Four of us started with soggy Poppadoms and then went on to eat four different main courses with an Aloo Gobi side dish along with Nans and 2 types of rice. All of the dishes tasted very similar and... More
