“The best curry I ever ate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

When I think of "O Queque" I think of their wonderful curry (chicken, prawn or crab). The curry sauce is spicy, hot and thick! Even when there's only the sauce left, it's a pleasure to dip small pieces of bread into it!
I also suggest you taste "gambas à Braz" (typical portuguese dish, with prawns replacing cod).
They also have very good samosas to serve as a starter. I have a suggestion for the owner: make them bigger!!!
I also love the lime mousse they have for dessert.

If the weather is nice ask to be seated at "titanic" table ;)
The price is good because you can eat a menu for less than €7.
A very good advantage: O Queque has free wireless Internet and TV with SportTV, so you can watch football matches and other events there ;)
I'll be back soon, for sure.
