We ate dinner tonight at the Masala restaurant in Cascais. It was an excellent dinner, we enjoyed all the dises (do not miss the Curry lamb and also the mango lassi!), desert included (pistachio ice cream - great!), and the atmosphere and service were great as well. Thank you!

Food was not too hot and had lovely aromatic flavours which was perfect for me (masala). Not excessively pricey.

There are several indian restaurants in Cascais, but I was told to check out the Masala. The recommendation was a bullseye, delicious and authentic.
