Never in our lives have we tasted food so awful, as nice as what the waiter was, the lady sat in the corner didn't take her eyes off us, really off putting seen as we just wanted a romantic night out. Food was nothing special, ended up leaving the main as both myself and my partner felt it all just... More

We went on what must have been the wettest evening in Luz, the welcome was warm and friendly. The food was superb. The king prawns were huge and very tasty. Would definitely recommend this one!

We visited with friends, who are regulars. We were promised a great meal and that's what we got. I ordered Chicken Pathia - my usual. It wasn't on the menu, but no problem. And it was excellent- as good as my favourite UK restaurant. We returned two nights later and whilst it was quiet (Sunday night in November) we enjoyed... More

There were very few restaurants open on a Monday in November, so we chose Saffron... the staters wee mediocre, lacking in spice and flavour... we had samosas which were thick and not well filled and the sheek kebab was dull and probably not cooked in the tandoor.... so disappointing. The mango and lamb curry, however, was much better with good... More

We chose this restaurant on a Trip Advisor recommendation and we were not disappointed. Food was beautiful, freshly cooked and plentiful. Staff were attentive but not overbearing and very helpful with explanations of dishes, but also when we asked about transport. Food was very flavoursome, and you could see it being cooked fresh in the kitchen. Highly recommended.

Always first restaurant to visit in Luz after long day travelling from U.K.. Lots of. Indian restaurants in locality but this is our favourite. For two people had Lamb Afghani, Tarka Daal, Aloo Gobi and Pilau Rice. Food was deliciously spiced mediium as per our request. An inexpensive meal to start our holidays.

Eating Indian wasn't the first thing that crossed our mind when we stayed in Luz, but on the strong recommendations of others who had been to this restaurant we decided to give it a shot. And we are glad we did! The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere. Also good... More

Friendly staff. Tasty food. Sat out on the terrace. Seemed to get busier after we arrived. Would highly recommend if you're after some Indian food in Praia da Luz.
