“Indian/Nepalese Food of Superb Quality”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

What a find for us. Living in Leicester the curry capital of the UK we are always disappointed when we have an Indian meal in Europe because it always seems second rate to what we experience in Leicester. We decided to try this restaurant at the end of our holiday and what a find it turned out to be.The owner is Nepalese as are all his staff, including the chefs but have they mastered the art of north Indian & Nepalese food. The owner is only 23 yrs old and has studied at Greenwich University UK. He has a wicked sense of humour and likes to communicate with his clients.We made two visits and on the second we sampled dishes from the Nepalese menu ( not eaten before) which were absolutely superb. The portions of food are quite large so you have to be careful not to order too much food initially.Although the service is a bit on the slow side remember all the dishes are cooked fresh to order and this is not a fast food restaurant where volume turnover is the key. A most enjoyable dining experience for us and a restaurant which we will definitely return to when we revisit Monte Gordo next September.

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 via mobile

One of best indain cuisine in the town.What a great restaurant!!!!! i have now visited on a number of occassions and have been prepared to travel even though other restaurants are closer to me. The food is extremely well presented and tastes fantastic, along with a great menu !!!! The staff are always polite, friendly and curtious and deliver a welcoming experience. Fantastic and keep up the good work.. Visit this restaurant one time if you were in Monte gordo, Portugal.

“Good but slow food”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Genuine Indian with unsurprising menu.
Attentive staff, good food+cooking, but service too slow: almost an hour to bring 2 relatively simple meals, with an half-full house, was a letdown.
Would not return only for this. Probably one to order your meal before arrival.

“Highly recommended 1 of the best Indians i have ever had.”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

If they open a restaurant in the uk then i will be there every month. This was 1 of the best indians i have ever had. Good size portions all cooked fresh. I have never left an indian wanting a doggy bag but this place did just that (if only i was not on holiday). If you are ever in Portugal and near Monte Gordo then well worth a visit. As a family of fine foods this is on all our top 5 list. paid 100 euros for 5 people starter / main / extras and drinks, Vaule for money. 10 out of 10
