I have just been for a trip to Carvoeiro with my wife - I arrived a day before my wife and decided to try O Indiano as I had read good reviews. I was certainly not disappointed! Very friendly and attentive staff, lovely food and the curries are served in special 'earthenware' pots which combine the dish with the curry... More

Best Indian curry I have had for years. Tasty and authentic. Great popadoms and pickles, perfect naan breads and great pilau rice.

Good place to have a curry. Potato and cauliflower one was definitely not worth ordering. Naan was superb. Place was full on February evening when we dined there. Food could be a bit more spicy.

Visited here recently in February and very tempted to go back but didn't as only in Carvoeiro for 5 nights. The starter was pretty bland (Sheek kebab) but the main courses (Chicken Jalfriezi and Lamb rogan josh) were amongst the best I have ever tasted.

What can we say about this restaurant? It is excellent. The service is friendly and efficient. The food is delicious. In fact we have been going here for years and know several other people that have too. It is definitely the best Indian restaurant around and deserves the success it has. Visit as soon as you can.

I wanted to take 1 point off for athmosphere where they could really improve a bit but just couldn't because the food was just so good, the service sweet and attentive, and all that for a very good value. Very good meal and good for takeout too!

Spot on Indian cuisine, great value, friendly service. This grub won't break the bank and it certainly hits the spot. Add a bottle or half of wine to wash it all down and you'll still come out at less than €40 with starter and main courses. Beat that then!
