Having spent time in India, shopping at all the Asian stores at home AND making a mean curry myself, I'd consider myself fussy when it comes to a good Indian! The clay oven is nothing short of amazing. I've had one take out and have just ordered my second (I'm only here for a week!). The service is great as... More

Had a lovely meal in this very popular restaurant. Be prepared to have to wait for a table though as it gets very busy. The food is worth the wait though.

The best Indian in Albufeira. Even though we were a group of 7 and had to wait for a hour for our table it was well worth the wait. We got great food, good service and great athmosphere in the place. Everything was so fresh and you could feel that it was authentic and pure.

The restaurant has been upgraded and has only been there a couple of months since moving from down the road. The food is lovely and the portion sizes were big enough. The restaurant has been well decorated and is very clean. Its good value for money and is one of the best Indians iv'e had abroad.

The best Indian restaurant in the Algarve. Owned and managed by Indians and not Bangladeshis parading as Indians. First time we have been to the new restaurant and considering they have just opened is was great to receive such fantastic service and that the quality of food has been maintained. Highly recommended and can't wait till next time. When we... More

Myself and my husband went for a meal here while on our holidays! It was amazing! The food, wine, staff and atmosphere were second to none! The staff are very attentive. We had 2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of wine for less than €50. Can't recommend enough. They take bookings for tables up to 7pm but it's a... More
