“Average food and slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

We were a group of 7 people and were seated in a very small place, quite uncomfortable.
We order indian bread and some indian specialties. We had to order the drinks 3 times because the waitress always forgot some and leave when we were still ordering.The bread took 30 min to arrive and was lacking sauce for everybody. The specialities took 1h30 to arrive! Were so small and so expensive. They were lacking flavour, something so odd for indian food.

I would NOT recomend this restaurant. There are a lot of indian restaurants in Lisbon (and of course, in Bairro Alto) that are so much better than this.
The average price is not 10€, but 15€ or more per person.

“Not bad, not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We had a craving for Indian food again and thought we'd give this place a try since it was close to where we were staying and it had some good reviews. We really didn't have high expectations (especially since we knew they served both Indian and Italian dishes, the menu is huge and is in multiple languages, and there is someone outside trying to attract customers) - but hey, we were hoping we'd luck out.

The staff was friendly enough and the atmosphere was nice. Prices are reasonable. We ordered the Garlic naan, the mixed vegetable curry and the chicken tikka marsala. The garlic naan was fine (we've had better, we've had worse), the mixed vegetable curry (was actually pretty good), and the chicken tikka marsala (just ok). The chicken itself was actually very good, it was just that the sauce was too tomatoey…more italian than indian. There seemed to be some repeat customers there (mostly college age). Oh well, maybe we'll have better luck next time.

“Please avoid if you can”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

I have been to this place on the last day of my stay in Lisbon. I went to a couple of other indian restaurants before and wanted to try a new place. The first bad impression i got was by looking at the waiters who stood outside on the street , inviting people to try this restaurant.

Optimistically , i went inside. I ordered lassi , vegetable pakora and fish jalfrezi. Lassi was too salty , i had to replace it. To my surprise , the vegetable pakora was salty as well.Trust me, I can take more salt than an average person and I felt them salty. I couldn't take it up and wanted to get out asap. I asked the waiter(after waiting for 10 min to find them) if I could cancel the fish jalfrezi and check. They cancelled it but didnt bother to ask if anything was wrong.

Overall ,Terrible Food and service.

PS:Please keep in mind that if you are taking the bus/metro to this restaurant , you need to walk an narrow uphill of 650 meters to reach the place.

“Great authentic Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Great food, good service, if you're in the mood for a curry this is the place.
Portions were more than fair for price and we'd definitely return on another visit to Lisbon.
