My partner and I visit this restaurant every year when we come to Villamoura and this time we were very disappointed. Service was good.... it had to be as we were the only people in there at 8pm on a Saturday night. The food was bland and chicken tasted rubbery like it had been pre boiled and then put with... More

The service was first class also, Jyoti who served us was lovely and looked after us 100% nothing was too much trouble and she always had a smile... More

We eat here during our holiday in Portugal. Live in France and impossible to get good Indian food. As it was Christmas, not many restaurants open but we had a superb meal. Poppadoms to start, Chicken Tikka Marsala for me, Tandoori for him. Lovely. Waitress not terribly friendly or welcoming but the food was good.

Service was very good and this is where it finishes! Maybe we went on a bad night when you read all the other reviews. Portion size good, however, I have never tasted a dupiaza like it. It means curry cooked with onions two ways. Not sure where the onions were....... the biriyani was unusual, at least it didn't come with... More

Had zero expectations of this restaurant, thought we would be disappointed by another poor Indian on the Iberian peninsula but was absolutely delighted with the tasty morsels on offer. Living in London we get spoilt for choice, this place was definitely on a par if not better. Staff were fantastic and attentive, friendly and did everything they could for us.... More

We visited this restaurant on a very quiet evening in Vilamoura. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was really very good. This was as good a Balti as we have had. We can't believe it is low on trip advisor! Try it!

Fantastic curries and chapatis! We ate here for the first time this week and had such a lovely meal we will definitely be going back. Very friendly staff too and fast service. One of the few places open in Vilamoura marina through December and January.
