Chicken Madras topped with oil! Luke warm rice. 2street sellers came through from the back door and stood at our table trying to sell. Needless to... More

The food here is fantastic. A must for anyone who enjoys Indian Food. The location is just out of the tourist trap area only a minute walk.

We were warmly welcomed, guided in our selections, and surprised by the delicious food. Reasonable prices, especially for Lisbon made it a positive experience.

One of the best Indian food ever eaten!! Situated towards the end of rua portas santos antao-close to the national theatre. This is an excellent restaurant right in the city center. Ideal when you feel like eating something tangy and exotic. We were served by the owner himself, who was extremely nice and welcoming. Big portions and super scrumptious. My... More

The man in charge was very chatty and made us feel at home. We sat right next to the window. We both had a chicken tikka masala which came as we ordered with... More

O Sitar is a cozy little restaurant at the quiet northern end of the tourist trap street of Rua das Portas de Santo Antão. Unlike the restaurants further down the street, they actually don't try to 'shanghai' you agressively while walking past. The food isn't outstanding, but you get a decent tasting Indian meal at a very affordable price. The... More

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"!
