Have always given this place a miss in the past but decided this time to give it a go. The food was really tasty, well cooked. As others say décor dated, but it's clean and well priced, don't walk past if you fancy something different than fish or steak, give it a go.

We were a little concerned after sitting down in this restaurant as there was only one other couple and the decor feels like a cross between someone's kitchen and a waiting room. The red wine was undrinkable with a sour taste so we awaited the food with low expectations wishing we'd gone elsewhere. When the food came we were very... More

When visiting the south coast of Portugal, you go for the grilled fish of course! But when you are a bit tired of that, why not try traditional Indian food? So did I, and visited the small Indian Hut in the heart of Olhao for a lunch. I had a traditional Chicken Curry with maan bread, salad and rice. And... More

Being a vegetarian on the Algarve can be tricky, fish and meat dominate most of the menus. Indian Hut was a really pleasant surprise, a good selection of vegetarian dishes all cooked really well. Actually better than some curries back home in UK, not oily at all. You can choose mild, medium or hot, we found medium about right, nicely... More

Olhao was our last stop in Portugal and I read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and I am glad we found it. I didn't go there with high hopes, thinking that this is not a cosmopolitan large city and as such how can a good Indian restaurant be located here, but I was proven wrong. I live in California and... More

Don't be put off by the basic decor and external appearance of the establishment.The food is of very good quality and freshly cooked.Excellent Indian Punjabi cuisine the way it is meant to be.The bad reviews on the restaurant reflect the taste buds of minority who are used to western taste buds hooked on high salt and sugar intake.
