BH does not write reviews. BH very rarely awards five elephants - the top score available in his personal scoring system for Indian meals (based on having eaten over 2000 Indian meals during his lifetime). So it is with shock, pride, admiration, delight, glory, joy, tears and ultimately wonder that Brandon announces the award of five elephants for India Gate's... More

We tried this restaurant after reading the reviews on TA. I made the reservation over the internet. We arrived at the time and very friendly people were waiting for us. We tried a lot of the card and I can say that this Indian food was the best I had since years. All taste perfectly delicious. I wanted to come... More

We went to this restaurant based on reviews. They did not disappoint! The food was absolutely delicious. Excellent selection of North Indian food! It was very busy. Best Indian food I've eaten in mainland Europe!

Really enjoyable meal. Some of the best samosas eaten. Excellent chicken dopiaz with great sauce. More than sufficient rice. Friendly and very efficient waiter. Reasonable price for just off central Lisbon.

Delicious Indian good that totally hit the spot on our last day in Lisbon. Garlic naan and cheese naan were on point! Buttery, crispy and served hot! Chana Masala - amazing with truly authentic flavors. We ate every last bite. Paneer Tika - wasn't bad but not the best I've ever had. Rice with cashews and raisin - good, hard... More

Although not Portuguese cuisine, the was the best meal we had during our time in Lisbon. We had chicken samosa's for starters (as recommended by our waiter), then we shared butter chicken and lamb biriyani for our main with garlic naan. I think because it isn't on the Main Street it lacks foot traffic and therefore walk in customers but... More

We just had an excellent meal here: the flavours are really good. We had the prawn korma and lamb korai and they were both delicious. The peshwari naan was also one of the best I have had. Good value for money too: we had popadums, mains, shared a dessert plus drinks for €42! We will definitely go back!

Excellent food quality and taste. We tried the onion pakoras and meat samosa's which did not disappoint. For our main course we ordered the mixed meat grill that is served on a sizzling platter, tasty but mentioned I found it a bit salty. But the Portuguese pallet seems to enjoy the extra salt which we noticed at every restaurant on... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
