Not too far away from the SOL subway station, this place yields decent Indian food.We thought the prizes were a little high, but that is what you get in Madrid.

I used to visit this restaurant a lot when I was living in Spain. Very affordable set menu that includes three courses. The food is delicious, it's a really small restaurant so it's better to book. Service is efficient. I'd recommend going for lunch to try the food since dinner is more expensive.

I had dinner here a couple of weeks ago and all the while I was there not a single Asian (apart from the staff off course) showed up. I tasted the food and knew exactly why. For all those who plan to visit this place for a meal should know that the food they serve here does not taste like... More

It was ok not impressing, but for once it's ok, it's good located close to the metro station, no parking. Go for chicken and curry souse it's the best there.

If you have ever tasted Indian food you would instantly know this place is a joke. Big names for dishes but they r all d same. Not to forget it's pretty expensive for the quality of food that is offered. D chicken gravy we ordered had chicken pieces like rocks. When asked we were told the chicken is cooked in... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
